TTFM: An International Encore

Tokyo 2000 Flier

Until we have something to talk about, let’s keep the thematic playlists rolling. A lot of people enjoyed Friday’s international flavor, so let’s take another dip into Phish jams from foreign lands to open up this week. Today’s selections contain some real heavy hitters to ease the transition back into the week. Enjoy the tunes, and by all means, “Read the book!


Stash” 7.2.97 II, Amsterdam, NL

Though its tough for me to separate this jam from its set—a frame of non-stop, top-notch Phish—this “Stash” flirts with Phish’s finest pieces ever.



Ghost” 6.15.00 II, Osaka, JP

Phish followed Radio City’s all-time rendition with this “Ghost” from Osaka—another mammoth version. Enojy Kenny Powers’ remaster.



Tweezer” 6.9.00 II, Tokyo, JP

The Tokyo “Tweezer”—a once in a lifetime experience.



Piper -> Makisupa” 7.6.98 II, Prague, CZ

One of the first fully blown-out “Pipers,” the improvisational centerpiece of the show. A stunning jam that had the audience in awe all the way to Barcelona.



Halley’s Comet > Roggae” 7.10.98 II, Barcelona, ES

After an aborted opening set due to sound issues, Phish came out and threw down this lasting, funked-out highlight from the last night of Europe ’98



Down With Disease” 6.15.00 II, Osaka, JP

Another creative monstrosity from Japan 2000.



Harry Hood > Izabella” 7.9.98 II, Barcelona, ES

Phish reprise the “Drowned” progression within this “Hood” then blow out its peak, bringing this Barcelona version into Hendrix’s “Izabella.” Note the whole crowd World  Cup-based “Ole!” chant after the set closer.

    I think ghost phunk was asking about this… but this is an inexpensive headphone amp that makes computers and iphones sound better with high dynamic range headphones…

    I’m no expert, but everything I read says these are an excellent value. It’s on my wish list…

    Does anyone know the band Main Squeeze?

    Good stuff if you haven’t heard

    I just saw Charles Bradley in madison and it was really really good

    Id put him on the same tier as Kings Go Forth. Very good soul.

    The one thing he’s got on KGF is the tambourine player is female and hot.

    Nothing against the type 2 tambourine player for KGF

    Just stopping in and forwarding this link I just saw in my emails. If it’s been reported here already, my apologies for the repetition… I’m not around these days with the busy jobby-job.

    Wait… That can’t be right… Is the closest airport to Atlantic City really Philadelphia 56 miles away?

    How do they expect anybody to come visit?

    Just got back from the cactus cafe down on the campus. Wednesday night and filled up by folks wanting to hear some good live music.

    I love the enthusiasm for music around here.

    Selector in tha AM.

    @ Garret

    I thought there was a Atlantic City International Airport

  8. garretc Says:


    There is, but from what I can find it has extremely limited service? I might just be looking poorly, but all I can find is like, Florida flights…

  9. HYHU Says:

    @Garret, @Tom. The airport IS Bader Field. Where the concert would be. So, Gotta fly into Philly. Transit to AC from there is solid.

    Leaving Phoenix! 24 hours was about 23 too many. Weird place. Everyone constantly talkin about golf, bleach blonde, driving everywhere, no taxis, strip malls, 80s pastels. This is that America I hear about on tv.
