Today in Phishtory!

Postby bigB » Sat Oct 08, 2005 6:13 pm

10-8-99 Nassau Colliseum. After a tear down the house night on the 7th(which included Tube,Fluff,Mikes, Mcgrupp and a Hydrogen played outside the mike's groove) i anticipated a possible let down before Albany. I was so wrong! The first ever Piper 1st set opener was quite a treat and the first set Meatstick and Antelope was no joke def making it like a second set. A huge Tweezer, Halley's and Hood followed in the second making it a legendary 2 night stand at nassau. If all that was not enough a special appearence by Tom singing The Who's " Were not gonna take it " made the run shift from legendary to epic! Albany ended up being some good solid shows but we were all still comparing, oh well!

10/8/95 SET 2 is sandwiched between the shortlived Keyboard Kalvary...There is a YEM > HYHU > Dog Faced Boy > Bowie SET 1 has a Demand > Sparkle...This show is way out in Missoula, MT...which could very well be the closest show that Phish ever played to where I live, but unfortunately I was young and stupid, and I'm sure I wasn't even aware of the show at the time.

Actually 5 years ago I was still realing from the very solid 10/7/00 Shoreline Show! Now that would have been a good last show. One that I am not embarresed to play for other people when listing Phish as my favorite band.

Ugh. I remember seeing the Possum encore at Hershey end, turn to my friend and saying (because it was the last pre-hiatus show I would see), "No more Phish for a long time."

Yes, goldenroad, there were plllllllllenty of bummed heads 5 years ago.

Then again, if I was living in California and got to see my favorite band play their maybe last show at Shoreline, I wouldn't be TOO bummed.

Today has not 1, not 2, but THREE monumental shows attached to it...

-Dark Side of the Moon show in Utah in '98 that featured the last "Harpua" until July '03
-The "Bangor Tweezer" in Maine in '94 that is featured on A Live One
-The "Crosseyed Antelope" that opened the second set in Florida in '96

ALL THREE GREAT SHOWS!!!

I'd definitely recommend the '96 show. Set II is one of the highlights of what some would call a weak (especially the first few weeks of the tour) fall tour.

^ Definately the best Gin ever! It is really what got me so into phish...I finally got a new stereo about 1 year ago now and I couldn't wait to try out one of the phish shows that I had downloaded, but that sounded like crap on my shitty little boom box...First thing I played on my new stereo 11/7/96 Disc 2. I smoked a bowl and completely fell in love...I don't know how to describe it...It was kind of like falling in love with a girl, but with no fear of rejection whatsoever...I wanted to get down on one knee and propose during that LOOOOOOOONGGGGGGGGG Gin jam, but I couldn't move...I was in deep and since that day my life's goal has just been to hear all the phish I can...because of this day which I didn't even know existed until about a year ago. If you hook me up with a PM gonnapickone...I might be able to send you a copy of this...although I think mine is just Mp3...

Everyone should really go out of their way to find this show...If you are lucky it might still be up on bt.etree.org.

We're entering a period of Phishtory that have MANY significant dates in the following weeks...especially in the '96-'99 era!

I know a lot of us (yes, me included) love the 11.17.97 Denver show....let's us all pull it out and give it a thorough listen today!! Crank up that "Ghost" and "Denver jam!"

also, the filler is quite delicious too!

everyone listen to their much-maligned Hampton Comes Alive discs in the next 48 hours! Especially the fantastic "Mike's Groove" on disc 6!!!

November 19-26 is possibly the greatest 8 day stretch in Phish history (not counting new years or halloween)...it has produced MANY great shows!

Today marks the 8th (DAMN!) anniversary of one of the greatest all-around Phish shows EVER at Hampton, and it also marks the 10th anniversary of a great "Free" and a wonderfully botched "Rift" in Maryland

If you have these shows, listen to them!

10th anniversary of the '95 Landover show. Does anyone else agree that fall '95 is a highly underrated time in the band's history? The falls of those four years ('95-'98) are simply astonishing (in terms of how good the band is).

^
I don't think you'll find a single person who will say that fall 1995 is underrated. It will ALWAYS be appreciated within the Phish ranks as one of the greatest tours ever, if not THE greatest (capped off by NYE '95, the 2nd greatest Phish show ever)

Excellent post...don't forget that 11 years ago today a wild jam erupted after Funky Bitch at the U of Mizzou! Highlight of the show hands-down, also serves as filler on the Bomb Factory livephish, so CRANK IT!

11/94 was an groundbreaking month, riding the surge of Halloween.
