Jam Chart for the state of AL (27 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1991-03-08 Stash Tuscaloosa, AL 9:15 First version that really stretches beyone standard "Stash." Somewhat dissonant, with interesting Trey soloing.
1991-03-08 Tweezer Tuscaloosa, AL 6:46 INSANE version, with an extra guitarist and a trombonist from Aquarium Rescue Unit. Includes "DEG" with Trey uttering McArthur Park lyrics.
1991-03-08 DEG Tuscaloosa, AL 1:05 -> in from "Tweezer." "DEG" is sandwiched inside "Tweezer" with ARU playing alongside.
1991-03-08 Tweezer Tuscaloosa, AL 2:27 -> in from "DEG" to complete this "Tweezer."
1991-11-08 Brother Tuscaloosa, AL 6:14 The Wailing Banshee version. With "Brother," more twisted and mind exploding = better.
1991-11-08 Weekapaug Tuscaloosa, AL 8:17 An improvisational jam for this period includes contrasting dissonant/upbeat sentiments and a cool swinging section beginning at 5:20, which includes Trey chanting "A slice of pizza" and "A bucket of lard" several times. Charlie Chan and Simpsons signals taboot.
1991-11-08 Jam Tuscaloosa, AL 0:57 > in from "JJLC." Dissonant intro jam for the Dude of Life (Steve Pollak) precedes the Dude singing vocals on "Self."
1994-05-02 SOAMelt Birmingham, AL 9:12 "MLB"-like jamming by Trey early, followed by an intense, improvisational, high tempo and super-charged jam.
1994-05-02 Runaway Jim Birmingham, AL 7:51 Great, growly tone from Trey, the jam building and bettering as Fish propels the intensity. Trey's play becomes truly dynamic, with great rhythmic melodic variation offset by huge, sweeping sustain. And Fish just crushes his cymbals.
1994-05-02 Jam Birmingham, AL 11:30 Oteil Burbridge on bass and Stacy Starkweather on stand-up bass. Experimental jam with instrument switching -> in from "Mike's Song," and includes Trey on drums, Fish on keyboard, and some scat vocals from Oteil.
1994-10-15 2001 Pelham, AL 4:57 Hilarious intro, then P-Funk "Flashlight" sickness jam.
1994-10-15 Runaway Jim Pelham, AL 10:17 Dissonant version departs from "Jim" around 7:00 into weird chanting, howling, and screaming by Trey and Fish.
1994-10-15 YEM Pelham, AL 11:55 In addition to a crazy vocal jam, the "YEM" jam -> to "Catapult" mid stream.
1994-10-15 Catapult Pelham, AL 0:38 -> in from "YEM." "Catapult" is sandwiched in the "YEM" jam. -> back to "YEM."
1994-10-15 YEM Pelham, AL 10:14 -> in from "Catapult," which is sandwiched in this "YEM." Crazy vocal jam!
1999-09-28 Sneakin' Sally Pelham, AL 8:54 Swirling, funky and laid back jam in this "Sally."
1999-09-28 Farmhouse Pelham, AL 6:52 The jam here starts out strongly and improves from there. "Rockstar" Trey is on display in this excellent version, taking advantage of multiple opportunities to add shredding color with his uniquely '99 style and tone.
1999-09-28 Tweezer Pelham, AL 15:39 Very beautiful ending to a strong jam that resembles 9/18/99 quite a bit but without the intensity.
1999-09-28 Makisupa Pelham, AL 8:16 This has an extended jam, as many in '99 do with whistling in the long jam segment. Some nice melodic playing from Mike, including a passage that sounds quite a bit like "Stir It Up" after the six minute mark.
1999-09-28 YEM Pelham, AL 22:11 Unusually upbeat "Sweet Home Alabama" VJ. (No B&D.)
2012-08-24 R&R Pelham, AL 15:55 Very good, multi-part jam. Begins in a snappy, rocking mode with a good "Live And Let Die" tease, grows in power, then mellows with a -> to "Lizards."
2014-08-01 DwD Orange Beach, AL 19:46 Following some quality "Type I" playing, the jam veers away at 9:00, shifting to minor mode and exploring some quieter realms. At 12:40, the mode shifts back to major, and the jam builds to an inspired peak, followed by additional tension-filled exploration.
2015-08-02 DwD Tuscaloosa, AL 18:52 The jam works away from "DwD" with a raw, dark tone, then shifts to some smooth, cheery and rhythmic play, which some hear as "Piper"-like. The energy and buoyant sense ramps up, and then the jam gradually recedes to quiet, brooding interplay.
2015-08-02 Seven Below Tuscaloosa, AL 10:26 One of the more interesting "Type I" renderings of this song that you will find. Trey sprinkles enough of his new summer toy, the Mutron peddle, to spice this one up. Page, Fish, and Mike stay pretty close to home, providing a great foundation for Trey to be more than adventurous on his solo. From the middle section, they ease seamlessly back into the main theme of the song.
2021-07-30 BOTT Pelham, AL 6:29 While Trey always seems at ease playing "BOTT," the first of several Summer 21 fire versions may be the finest, featuring deft and nimble musicianship that carries over into other Phish classics like "Foam" and "Fluffhead." Page's impossibly fun work on the Wurlitzer makes recommending this jam a no-brainer.
2021-07-30 Carini Pelham, AL 24:59 The first of several strong outings for "Carini" in Summer '21 and the longest version to date is chock-full of melodious interplay in all stages and features key elements that would reappear as signature sounds of the tour - namely Trey's octave down throaty tone and quickfire delay riffs. At 19:30 Trey pushes for a more familiar peaking section but it pays off handsomely thanks to some expertly delivered trills.
2021-07-30 Golden Age Pelham, AL 11:55 Doesn't stray very far from the usual boundaries of "Golden Age", but does make feints towards "Mind Left Body" and features some very fancy rhythmic games from Fishman and lovely piano work from Page before very briefly blooming into major key and settling into "Mountains in the Mist".
