Pick 3 and only 3
« on: April 26, 2005, 08:34:25 AM »
Okay, so aliens abduct you, and before leaving for their world
w/ you in tow they say, "look, we'll let you
take some music, but you can only take phish music, and you
can only take albums/shows released in 3 specific years - you
can take as many shows from those three years, but ONLY, those
three years........"

So you can have every show from 3 specific years in Phish's career....
which three?

(yeah, I realize this is a really lame scenario, but i'm hopped up on
3 cups of coffee, and the thought crossed my mind this morning - not
aliens, but ways for me to trim up my harddrive - i asked myself the
question, what if i just chose 3 years?  of course, in the end, i decided
i just need more HD space)

I like 94 and 97, I might actually go 96 insstead of 95 for things like the New Years Run.

Maybe its because I was listening to 12-31-96 on the commute this morning

Oh, that's easy!

1993
1994
1995

baby  :wink:

I'd be sad to miss things like all the Festivals, the later Halloweens (and Dark Side show), great 1997 Cow Funk, and some excellent later shows I saw in person...as well as earlier gems like 8/21/87, 5/26/89, the 11/16/91 YEM and the 3/13/92 Antelope craziness...

But those'd definitely be my choices, being the 93-95 snob that I am. These years, to me, still seem to have the best balance, by far, of every aspect I love of Phish. Even some things that some would argue didn't come about till later, like funky or ambient/spacey styles are there at times. They're just not as omnipresent as they later would be.

Not intended in any way to crack on other years...as I said, there'd be some things I'd miss a lot...but in the end, I'd know I made the right choice.

Choosing only TWO, on the other hand...let alone ONE...would be a nightmare  :wink:

yeah dude......that second set's been getting heavy airplay
since your story - it's funny b/c that halley's jam isn't anything
special - it's so sparse in its texture.......but it's quickly becoming
one of my all-time favorite jams........it's just got that flow that i love
so much - it's sick:)   and the mango jam, the twist..........yeah dude,
thanks for the hookup on that one:)
