The Hood on ALO is my favorite, the best I've heard so far.


It's pretty good.
Try the Lemonwheel version, or even HCA for versions that rival its tastiness. There are even some post-hiatus versions that go above and beyond the normal "Hood"-jamming.

Yeah I find myself loving all the post-hiatus Hood's I've heard. Even the ones that don't go type II.

I think gorgeous, well-played "Hoods" can be placed in the same category as "Reba," "Slave to the Traffic Light," and "The Curtain With" as Songs That Have the Potential to Make Me Cry

Oh why oh why didn't I hear this album when it came out? I'd have gotten on the Phish bus before the hiatus, that's for sure.

I love the way they spliced in the excerpt from Miles Davis A Tribute to Jack Johnson before the Wilson, like it was set break music. From the Companion, 2nd Ed.:

"The Squirming Coil is mostly 10/9/94 but the Page outro is from 10/23/94".

I love the Slave from this disc. Trey has such amazing control of his bends and tone during those piercing high notes at the end of the buildup, it just kills me every time.

As for Hood, I'll just copy this bit from the reviews section of Phish.net:


12:20 - They start to bring it back up. 12:35 - Rock-star feedback and distortion from Trey. 13:00 - Very un-Harry sounding. Intense from all four, put they're playing underneath the notes, not on top of them (listen to "Trey Speaks" from a Guitar Workshop he gave in '92. It's on the Tank Talk Tapes. He talks about playing above and below notes in order to create or release tension. Very interesting.) Tension definitely building. Unusual for a Hood to build tension. I generally think of them as one long release... 13:30 - Tension RELEASED! Yes! Give it to me! These are the Phish moments I live for! When they take a dense, coiled, tense ball of music that they've created and just LET GO, allowing the music to flow back through them, triumphantly. Not as long an ending jam as some Harry's, but perhaps sweeter because of the built up tension.


Yep, that's it. When Fish starts pounding out that beat on his toms, and Page and Mike just hammer the D note, when Trey does those hyper-distorted bends that then go in to the full band riffing (from 12:55 until 13:27 on my CD's counter) well, my head nearly explodes every time. Yes, indeed, I can feel good about this Hood.

I love fall 1994 and I've been trying to download as many shows from that tour as possible. Check out the 11/26/94 show that Slave was taken from for an amazing 37 minute Bowie.

Question.... I just came upon this realization after finishing my listen to 11/2/94 Set Two SBD...

How was this legal to grab off of eTree? Was it not legal I guess? I recognized the Tweezer while listening, but couldn't figure out from there... And now it just dawned on me...

Maybe this is a dumb question... But any thoughts?

It had the complete show as an AUD. Then the second set in a different torrent was SBD.

It's funny you say this man as this is one of the few tunes i've shed a tear listening to.

ALO - my first Phish album, also my second fav behind New Years 95. The Hood probably is my all time favorite Phish performance ever. I was curious, the only Phish songs I had heard at that time were Chalkdust, Bouncing, and Wilson, and I saw that this album had all 3. I bought it and I couldn't stop listening to it.

A Live One was my first Phish album. I got it from the local library and was immediately blown away by the wonderful guitar work (previously my only taste of jamming or anything over six minutes was early psychedelic-blues Pink Floyd, so Phish's psychedelic-jazz style was entirely new for me). I distinctly remember listening to it while it was raining outside: the distinctive bass intro of Bouncing immediately had me hooked.
For quite a while, that version of Simple was my favorite Phish song (before being replaced by that Bouncing, and then that Gumbo). This album is still one of the greatest live records in history, being one of the only ones to really make an album sound "live" without making it sound either like an audience recording or like a studio recording with too much reverb.

It still has my favorite YEM (although it's vocal freakout section pales in comparison to the Halloween '96 take), Stash, Simple, and Wilson. I still don't understand why they put Montana in there (Llama, Cavern, or Fee would've made much more sense and still have fit).

Excellent point. It is one of the best-mixed live albums, ever. (also with the best booklet - great job displaying the live Phish atmosphere(s))

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but it is the ninth listed album...it is unranked.

#1 in my heart, though.
