what was THE song

Postby greenrhombus » Sat Oct 11, 2008 6:46 pm

It was the New Orleans Jazzfest (Phish) show... More specifically, the YEM into the acapella Wolfman's Brother.

I had barely heard of Phish at that point. Not too mention ever seeing them live, but my buddy back in Florida told me that I had to go, and gave me a ticket (and a hit) and said to find him when I got there. My life was forever changed.

I think a girl in Bitterswett Motel said it best: "Phish's music is full of freedom and life. Thats what I am looking for."

There is no way to explain to a person who does not like Phish the profound effect Phish has had on my life. From California to the Everglades to Maine; from jail to probation; from touring in style to renting a uhaul for an "in town move" and taking it 2000+ miles; from tour paranoia to the feeling that I have no one to answer to but myself; from adolescence to adult-hood on the other side and now clean.

What great memories and a great ride...

Thanks Kris for the thread!! And thank you Phish!!!

;D My first show 12-3-97 at the Spectrum. At the time it blew my mind. Looking back it was a good show among great shows. 2001>YEM and a crazy funk jam out of Possum. I remember what I wore, haha.

^^ To go along with what he said, Guyute was my first phish love. I was riding with a good friend of mine in his blue 68 bronco our sophomore year in high school and he put on Guyute and I was sold once i heard it. Within days I was becoming obsessed (is that the right word??) with songs such as Down with Disease, Harry Hood, Chalkdust Torture, Maze, Yem, etc.. I had a very quick transition!!

The first Phish I ever heard was Bomb Factory 94 Tweezer, but honestly that first disc of MSG NYE 95 is what really got me into Phish. The PYITE is especially good, and I remember thinking it was cool that a band would play chess with their audience from concert to concert.
His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.

bomb factory 94 tweezer throughout the second set blew me away and still does. MSG 95 second disc from audience chess move to the mikes song was one of the first things that perked my ears to phish

My Sweet One and Contact then it just blew up from there.

"Herbivores ate well cause their food didn't never run."
"Oh, if you're ever unsatisified with the way life's treating you, You know you can count on me to take good care of You"
"I'd buy you a ewe"

"It's the way you cling to the road
When the wind tries to shove you
I'd never go riding away
And come back home without you."

the album lawn boy, followed by A live One, followed by PON

my sisters phish albums she gave to me back in HS, took me awhile to get "IT", i think it was during a drive thru the pines listening to Lawn Boy, enjoying some fresh olfactory hues of the forrest and in my hands, it all clicked then Antelope just exploded in my ear drums, I was done, cooked, toasted, basted, ready for more, and more it was, a lot more, a fuck ton more, and now... there is more once again, let it rain let it rain
