|1992-03-27||Magilla||Charlotte, NC||3:58||> from "Dinner and a Movie," Trey takes a cool line and really plays up the melody. Page takes over, his solo unique and varied, a sound awash in waves.|
|1993-07-28||Antelope||Charlotte, NC||11:14||Frenetic playing and lots of little brief departures that stretch the boundaries of "Antelope" and then keep coming back. Trey's playing is incredible. Released on Live Bait Vol. 4.|
|1994-04-24||Gin||Charlotte, NC||9:58||"Gin" -> "Jump Monk" -> "Gin." Quality jamming early on with variations on the "Gin" theme. The "Jump Monk" (Charles Mingus) segue comes near the end (one of only 2 Phish performances of this jazz classic).|
|1994-04-24||Jump Monk||Charlotte, NC||1:17||-> from "Bathtub Gin." One of only two performances of this Charles Mingus jazz classic. -> back to "Gin."|
|1994-04-24||Gin||Charlotte, NC||0:23||-> in from "Jump Monk." Quick return to end "Gin" before > to "Dog Faced Boy."|
|1994-04-24||Slave||Charlotte, NC||9:17||Here, there's a noticeable, bouncy groove to the jam section, like you want to tap your foot along, which seems unusual for "Slave." And Trey really brings it on heading into the finish.|
|1994-04-24||Bowie||Charlotte, NC||21:29||First of the "Big" '94 "Bowies." This is an unbelievable journey of music and improvisation, spine tingling at times, and thrilling by the conclusion. And the best was yet to come.|
|1995-11-19||2001||Charlotte, NC||5:58||Hendrix style effects, Trey mini-kit and first baby voyage for "2001".|
|1995-11-19||Tweezer||Charlotte, NC||21:32||Gets very funky for several minutes. Very cool must-hear version.|
|1995-11-19||SOAMule||Charlotte, NC||12:34||Vocal and guitar response by Trey, but very different from all the preceding versions. Page picks up Trey's musical theme in his second solo. Mike adds his part with extended chanting before the return to lyrics.|
|1996-10-26||It's Ice||Charlotte, NC||9:14||Creepy background effects pair with some fantastic piano stylings.|
|1996-10-26||Simple||Charlotte, NC||16:13||Awesome version. Following the standard outro jam, Trey jumps to the mini percussion kit, while Page jams with his keyboard toys including the Moog and B-3. Mike and Page produce some excellent jazzy and funky sounds. -> to "McGrupp."|
|1999-07-07||Sneakin' Sally||Charlotte, NC||12:03||With a digital delay loop running in the background, Page and Fish crank up a nice rhythmic jam that grows very quiet in the final minutes before dissolving completely.|
|1999-07-07||2001||Charlotte, NC||22:42||Borg landing intro. A minimalist first jam and a second jam that floats in a syncopated orbit. A true mothership journey.|
|2003-07-25||CDT||Charlotte, NC||10:21||The jam settles down at about 6:00, then gradually amps back up.|
|2003-07-25||Gin||Charlotte, NC||18:29||Great "Gin" which begins with several cool stops, works through the "Type I" standard, then goes beyond, breaking into a groove which morphs into several different moods and sections, and then returns to "Gin" to conclude.|
|2003-07-25||Hood||Charlotte, NC||29:34||Spectacular, very "Type II" "Hood." Between this one and 7/31/03, the jam here gets a further removed from the norm, working through several exploratory sections before returning to close. > to an excellent "David Bowie."|
|2003-07-25||Bowie||Charlotte, NC||15:24||Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Blows out the door of "Bowie" almost immediately into multiple varied and solid movements and includes a nice midstream, full band "Tweezer" tease.|
|2010-07-02||BOTT||Charlotte, NC||10:03||Another strong 3.0 version.|
|2010-07-02||YEM||Charlotte, NC||22:19||"Fuck Your Face" teases (Trey; Mike in B&D); "Moving in Stereo" tease (Trey): Vocal jam included portions of "Proud Mary" and "Get Back," along with "Dong Work for Yuda" and "Slow Ride" quotes.|
|2011-06-17||R&R||Charlotte, NC||13:13||"A Love Supreme" tease is included in this outstanding version, which while subtle and spacey at times, is the "good" kind of musical space, requiring band-wide cohesion and coordinated improvisation. Segue to "Ghost."|
|2011-06-17||Reba||Charlotte, NC||11:47||Pretty clean - and rather fast - playing through the composed section incites strong improvisation from Trey, who syncs up with Mike and Fish, who nicely modulate intensity. Great guitar - with Page painting bright fills - dominates a strong, patient, and highly musical build, with Trey trilling to a thrilling release.|
|2012-08-26||McGrupp||Charlotte, NC||8:54||A very strong composed section features great Trey. Then Page's forceful piano soloing is matched by a bit of full-band improvisation, with Trey coloring the jam with a few scattershot notes before settling into a nice, warm line. A really fun and inviting version.|
|2012-08-26||Tweezer||Charlotte, NC||13:17||Enchanting, even stunningly beautiful, jam to which each band member contributes powerfully. (Listen carefully for Mike's tease of "Cars Trucks Buses" as well.)|
|2014-07-25||Winterqueen||Charlotte, NC||9:37||The jam has a more relaxed vibe than most. A bit of pitch shifting by Trey, which was an issue on 2014 versions. The ending segment is extended as well.|
|2014-07-25||CDT||Charlotte, NC||16:24||Although Fish keeps the rhythm firmly tied to the basic "CDT" rhythm throughout, Trey and the others explore a lot of varied themes, sounds and motifs within this structure.|
|2019-06-21||Runaway Jim||Charlotte, NC||18:39||A number of recent versions (see: 7/25/18 and 10/20/18) demonstrate the band's renewed interest in one of their finest compositions. Given your preference (the spirited first "half" of early-90's "Runaway Foams," or the crazed, free-form improvisation found within something like Shoreline 1997's II-opening jam), the band delivers an exciting amount of content, befitting triumphant "Funiculi Funicula" teasing. The entire ride is worthy of attention, but, true to 2019's style, Phish squeezes out an incredible amount of interesting improvisation, so remain tuned in to the outro, which doesn't so much fade as hint at a "DDLJ" before > "SaSS."|
|2019-06-21||ASIHTOS||Charlotte, NC||10:06||Wastes no time moving to a warm major key jam (with charming "If I Only Had A Brain" teases) that picks up speed and gets almost tropical at Page's urging, before shifting to some tasty rocking out and letting Mike really shine. A lot of meat packed into a smaller frame.|
|2019-06-21||Possum||Charlotte, NC||12:20||> from "20 Years Later." After a normal start to the song, at 5:50 the band shifts to a quiet, minimalist jam for about a minute. At this point, Trey starts singing the words to "Have Mercy" over the jam and the rest of the band follows suit. "Have Mercy" is sung over the jam for a moment, and then more typical "Possum" play until the song is brought to a rousing conclusion.|
