Jam Chart for Spain (9 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1997-07-11 Wolfman's Escalarre, Spain 15:09 Extended funk section which continues until 12:00 when the jam loosens into rocking mode and > to "Johnny B. Goode."
1998-07-08 Moma Barcelona, Spain 11:35 Strong playing in the early section, as is the case for many '98 renditions of "Moma". The jam segment is extended and has some nice, ascending melodic playing in the last few minutes. Outstanding version for this period.
1998-07-08 Gin Barcelona, Spain 17:54 A very nice "Type I" jam mellows into some quiet variations on the "Gin" theme, and then migrates to lush, ambient space.
1998-07-08 Wilson Barcelona, Spain 8:53 A confidently sloppy, set-opening rendition gets aggressive as soon as the vocals end. In place of a solo, the band drones away in a heavy choogling mood with crisp Fishman fills, before Trey finds a descending riff, and Page responds masterfully with blistering organ.
1998-07-09 Meat Barcelona, Spain 8:36 Includes a groovy, low-key outro jam.
1998-07-09 Tweezer Barcelona, Spain 18:10 Calling this version among the greatest in Phish history is not an overstatement. Goes from serenely funky to balls-to-the-wall badass. "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" tease from Mike. At around 16:30 in this version the chord progression is that of "Wolfman's Brother."
1998-07-09 Drowned Barcelona, Spain 16:27 Jam segment is blistering from the very start, and somehow the band maintains a ferocious intensity for about six minutes, after which the jam cools off into a rock groove, which coasts along for awhile (Fish on cowbell for a bit too), with Mike stepping up at times, and concludes admirably with a return to Drowned's chords, before the jam slows down and segues into Theme.
1998-07-10 Halley's Barcelona, Spain 18:00 One of the earlier examples of the groove-based jamming that would blossom in '99 and '00. Mike takes the lead and Trey and Page gradually build off this, including a nice "First Tube" tease. The jam winds down in ambient '98 space.
1998-07-10 Simple Barcelona, Spain 24:11 Fairly straightforward "Simple" jam becomes spacey for a stretch, then takes off into stratospheric, rocking and guitar-driven improvisation.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
The jam chart team has highlighted some versions with a yellow background; these are the versions the team believes to be especially improvisational, or otherwise notable.
