This is a whopper folks! Be sure to watch it!

For the second week in a row, we are pleased to have a YouTube video debuting for the first time on Video of the Week here on Phish.net.

All we can say is "Wow!" Dan's and my breath were taken away watching this extraordinary 25 minutes from 1994-11-22 at Phish's performance of Yerushalayim Shel Zahav at the one and only stint at University of Missouri's Jesse Auditorium. Among other highlights of the show were the only performance of Blackbird outside of Halloween at Glens Falls, the final performance of Little Tiny Butter Biscuits, and a Big Black Fury Creature From Mars that started electric and morphed into the acoustic lineup that had been so prevelant this tour. However, the highlight of the night, indeed was the Jam > Yerushalayim Shel Zahav which ended up being included as filler for Live Phish 18 (the legendary Bomb Factory show).

If you've had even a cursory eye on Phish videos lately, you probably noticed some great videos uploaded by @telekinetica. Dave has a slew of videos on YouTube spanning not only Phish & Trey, but Santana, Hendrix, Beastie Boys, Arctic Monkeys and a whole lot more. Be sure to check out some of his nearly 500 videos on You Tube.

Read on to hear some thoughts from Dave about this great video...

Video of the Week: Radio City Music Hall Unearthed from 2000-05-21

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 6 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f62bbe9, posted in the Video category



We are incredibly thrilled this week to hightlight a handful of videos on our Friday "Video of the Week" blog. If you were poking around in the forums earlier this week, you may have seen that Jeff Meyers, @MoonDuckie78 inquired if people would be interested in checking out some vids he shot of Radio City Music Hall on 2000-05-21. A resounding yes! It's always fun seeing video from shows that previously had no video floating around. Especially from a spectacular venue like this and of course one from the two night run that marks Phishs' solitary visit to this hallowed hall. The thread included YouTube embeds of both Piper and Twist from the second set. We reached out to Jeff and asked him about his recollections from the show and he was gracious enough to share a few thoughts and the remainder of the video that he has. Read on to get a little flavor from these memorable shows from 2000....

Posted 4 years ago by tweezer - 16 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f5e4efa

In honor of Trey's recent orchestral tour, Drew Hitz sat down with Joe Alessi, principal trombone of the New York Philharmonic. Joe, who many consider the greatest trombone player in the world, discussed his experience perfoming with Trey Anastasio at Carnegie Hall in 2009.

Drew Hitz: Had you ever heard any of Trey's music, either solo or with Phish, before he played with you guys?

Joe Alessi: I'm ashamed to say I had not.

DH: Well you won't really stumble upon them in too many mainstream media outlets. Had you ever heard of Trey or Phish?

Hard to believe we've been at this for 90 weeks, but welcome to Mystery Jam Monday Part 90 at Phish.net. As usual, we will be playing for a free MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Tuesday Hint: THE USERS NEED A HINT!! It's a pretty exciting day at Blog HQ. The correct song has been named.

Wednesday Answer: Welcome back, Rabeldy and nice call on the 6/10/00 "Piper," which (as Rabeldy notes) is not even the jamming highlight of that show. Nevertheless, the Blog will call this one a moral victory and comply with his request make next week an double MJ.

Interview: Carl "Gears" Gerhard

Posted 4 years ago by Lemuria - 4 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f47f5af

In April 2000, Charlie Dirksen interviewed Carl "Gears'" Gerhard, longtime Phish guest and member of the Giant Country Horns. The following exerpts from that interview were published in the first edition of The Phish Companion.

Charlie Dirksen: What are your greatest musical influences?

Carl Gerhard: I grew up in a family that totally supported my music. I used to sit in my living room at home for hours and try to play along with every song that came on the radio. That really helped me develop my ear, and from that, I was able to recognize and memorize tunes. I had a great band director in high school (Norris Birnbaum), who loved quality music, regardless of idiom or genre. Our band was always performing the most challenging pieces. He pushed me to be a more well rounded player. I've been a Navy musician for 14 years, and I've played with some super-talented people who have influenced how I play today. I mean, some really hot musicians. I can't say enough about Phish. You can't help but be positively influenced and motivated by their music and their musicianship. No doubt about it, they are the best at what they do.

Hey, kids! Wanna buy every pavilion ticket for summer tour for only $950 (plus ticket face and fees)?

Posted 4 years ago by jackl - 48 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f5982b2, posted in the Video category



Well, you only need to buy "TicketMaster Spinner Bot" by TicketBots.net! See how easy it works to snarf up all the TicketMaster and LiveNation tickets when they go on sale from the comfort of your home, office or your mom's basement for the ridiculously low low price of $950, marked down from $1,470!!.

(Actually, we lied, TicketMaster Spinner Bot alone may not do the trick, you may need some TicketBots.net add-ons like their "OCR add on" (only $2,750, marked down from $4,100). And maybe some other add ons as well, such as their patented "VPN Tester" ($320), "PDF Downloader" (only $390), and other nifty bot gizmos!

Complete with their crackerjack tech support staff from Bangalore, this will have you rolling in the dough before the show, without needing to drag those heavy nitrous tanks to parking lots and dodge or payoff police and security!

Hat tip to sharp-eyed reader David Menconi who wrote to Bob Lefsetz' "Mailbag" (3/8/12) that he "was amused to discover that you really can just order up scalping software as easily as you can download a book on amazon".
