TTFW: Late ’90s Grab Bag

12.28.11 - MSG (Graham Lucas)

Runaway Jim” 7.31.97 II, Mountain View, CA

Jammed out “Jims” where have you gone?



Tweezer” 8.1.98 II, East Troy, WI

Can never get enough of the Alpine “Tweeze”…



Ghost” 7.3.97 II, Nuremburg, GR

Euro ’97 “Ghosts” were slow, funky and exploratory, as Phish honed their new jam vehicle before coming stateside.



Bathtub Gin” 10.1.99 I, Ames, IA

A first set smoker from the heartland in ’99. We came out to a smashed window and many things stolen from our car before the all-night drive to Minneapolis. Fuckin’ wooks…



Reba” 8.14.96 I, Hershey, PA

A stunning version from a Summer ’96.



Stash” 9.9.99 I, Vancouver, BC

A psychedelic trek from Fall ’99’s first set.



2001” 7.7.99 II, Charlotte, NC

One of ’99’s top versions.



Mike’s Song” 12.2.97 II, Philadelphia, PA

This version needs no introduction—funk warfare.



Piper > Guy Forget” 10.1.00 II, Phoenix, AZ

The first bust-out of “Guy Forget” after being a piece of soundcheck lore for years.



Weekapaug Groove” 4.3.98 I, Uniondale, NY

My favorite “Weekapaug” to date.

    $25 a ticket? On scene who knows.

    It may just be the reason I get my ass there.

  2. BingosBrother Says:

    Gilmour is still making music that is $$$ imo. His tone sounds like where suicide bombers think they go when they die.

    A little late night brew and bud with these killer TTFW’s I’ve been nursing the last 2 days. Phish… the gift that keeps on giving.

    Cheers Miner for delivering the jams day in and day out. With a little writing here and there.

    wow bingos, thats some A+ wordsmithing right there. painted a perfect picture

    $25 would be nice 😉 help out my dicks fund for sure, cheapest i saw now was 55, everyone has dropped fees and just trying to get face back, but theyre all over the place, scalpers still asking 100 each night, really ???

    “Did Floyd ever jam live?”

    The early Floyd did..see Interstellar Overdrive…which they played up until 1970… In the end that was one of major arguments between Roger and Dave… Roger prefers very structured songs, were Dave likes to jam a little more. Dave hated playing the Wall, literally only two solos not scripted down to the last note….

    Syd was the big open jammer, short lived as it was….

  6. William H. Bonney Says:

    ::throws on ‘The Wall’ LP::

    @Robear good idea….three weeks till Phish and a week later The Wall in state…almost like 1994 or something, just one fat man missing….

  7. William H. Bonney Says:

    @Bingos No doubt Dave is the man, saw his last set of shows state side at Radio City, the version of Echoes was worth the price of admission alone, Gilmour is one of the masters, suspect he will be back on road at some point. Not until Roger is done most likely he hasn’t toured without Jon Carin since he took over Pink Floyd for the Momentary Lapse of Reason tours…Carin is the secret Pink Floyd weapon, when they want to relearn songs he teaches them.

  8. Robear Says:

    Will! I was thinking 1994, as I missed Floyd @ the Silverdome seeing Jerry!

    WHB- Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that you didn’t know what you were talking about. And I guess I meant arenas rather than stadiums (stadia?), but it wasn’t really a tour anyway. At any rate, this discussion has been sorely lacking in Live at Pompeii.
