Ok, now that the CD's are circulating, lets hear your favorite moments you've heard...
I just received Alpine Valley yesterday, listened to it late into the night...here's some cool stuff i heard:
1) There is definitely a He's Gone-style jam for over a full minute right before Cryptical that is out of a cold start..the cool thing is Rob Barraco is playing a different melody line that i believe is "Sing Me Back Home" while Phil plays the He's Gone bassline...anyone else catch this?
2)Speaking of playing 2 things at once, check out the transition from Walrus to The Other One..the guitars are playing this Eastern sounding riff to the Walrus theme and Phil starts playing The Other One at the same time..this goes on for awhile 2 songs at once and it fits perfectly
3)Phil counting down "1,2,3,4" right before St Stephen..again it fits
4)The jam after Shakedown is truly amazing, really goes into some unusual spaces and then the transition into Cumberland on a dime is a jawdropper....bravo!!!
5)The jam after Cryptical is downright weird, spacey noddley stuff and then Phil pounds out a strong new direction and its off to the races with yet another jam creation
6)The transition from The Other One into Viola is another jawdropper, just so damn perfect with a jagged tension that rips a whole new possibility into the musical universe
7)There are more cool meltdown deep spaces than at all 7 other shows i saw this summer combined...intense
I Love that show!!!
Enjoy it loud and often!!
I'll get back to you on this subject, I have heard numerous things on the disc's from tour I've acquired so far. Just gotta pin point em all! Theres a serious 'stray cat' jam in the saturday show from the greeks. Im sposed to get the alpine anyday now, we can compare notes then!
WHO'S GOT MY JONES BEACH!!!!
How can I get a copy of Alpine 7/14/2001. That show was hot as hell and I would like to re-live that night over and over again. Thanks, Shawn
I must go with 6/30/01 Berkeley Greek.
Wooho, starts things off with an wonderful
Unbroken Chain! i really love the end jam
thats been coming out of this song after Phil
sings his "lalallalla la la la la" there is some
real amazing improve by Jimmy. The
Passenger that follows the wheel is just
outrageous and pumped, blew me right out of
my socks and into the Zone! Truly it is
wonderful that Phil revieved this one. The 1st
beautifully Broken is played next, a real sweet
song, could be a top 40 warren song, love the
lyrics and Warrens voice with it. Then we get to
a dance crazy in your face good time Not fade
Away complete with a Meltdown and fluent
jams. The Bird Song that closes the set,
well...."All I know is Somthing like a Bird Within
She Said opens the 2nd set very well, not to
great except for the outro jam of You Cant
Always Get What you Want, stupendous! this
seuges into a riveting Mountains of THe Moon,
it is defiantly worth it to be up close to Phil for
this one, just watching him sing brings tears
to my eyes. Mountains sends us into space
where we float with the Intrada and Luna Jam
for abou 25 minutes. I havent heard any of the
other Planet Space Jams phil has been doing
(i.e. Jupiter Mars Jam) but if they are anything
like this, oh baby! This has got to be some of
the most beautiful music ever played rivaling
the quiet segment of Morning Dew. This Jam
is the highlight of the show for me, ahhh the
sweet Phil & Friends, get this show for the
Jams, keep it for the Other One! Cryptical is
nice, but the Other One is a little too much.
Logging in at around 22 minutes! complete
with the Eleven Jam in the Middle!!! Phil is
really into it, and so are everyone elese crowd
included. This seuges to 1000 stars, the back
to the Other One where Phil does his stop and
go ending, comin comin comin around, you
gotta love this, back to Cryptical. ;0)
A perfect Box of Rain to end a truly
I'm a little new to this online trading thing. And I guess the real problem is, I have nothing to offer :-(
How do you go about getting these shows? I was at Charlotte and would love to have that tasty treat in my cd player.... and never take it out!
Any tips for a newbie?
Alpine was nothing short of incredible. You cant forget the very very strong Lovelight jam at the end of Shakedown. Phil starts laying down a very funky baseline to it and then the rest of the band just kind of falls into it and they do the intro to lovelight and the place is fuckin going nuts and then they slip back into the shakedown jam. priceless.
Bobby is a good friend.
hey bdub,, follow the tapers traders thread and get in on some b&p's (ya gotta act fast) and someone will point out the "rules" just keep checkin that page
Alpine was sweet. Listening to the set I Broken Arrow> Mason's brought back all kinds of memories. The disc, from that show, that gets most airplay is 3. From Walrus through Golden Road.
However, the Deer Creek show was the melter. From the opening note of the extended intro into Soulshine and all the way through the Stella encore. Just listen to Set I. The China>Bird Song> Blue Sky just smokes especially the Bird Song.
Now Set II has the majestic Dew>She Said>Stronger than Dirt>King Solomon's>Sugaree. The Sugaree is an undiluted magic carpet ride.
Don't get me started on disc 2 of Red Rocks 7/7/01.
Clearly, and I mean clearly Hartford CT Set II, the first set was strong, but the second set raged!!!!!!
Jam>Dear Mr Fantasy>St. Stephen>Eyes>St. Stephen,Help!>Slip>Eleven>Slip>Franklins!!!
(on f*ckin fire!!!)
Oooo thats a goooooood set!!!
hartford, definitely hartford, but not just for the outrageous second set but also the most dizzying Cassidy I've ever heard.
I was at Hartford, and Jones Beach and PNC and Hershey, all amazing shows, and Red Rocks, but has anyone checked out 7.3, Eugene, this was a killer show too. Alot of the same style as Hershey, a stupendous, and as TC has described, equisite show. Eugene has a very sweet Friend of the Devil, Dire Wolf, Hard to Handle, Broken Arrow morph into Passenger that stands right up there as a great first set too. Picking a favorite is tooooo hard. So many excellent sets.
Hey, I am with Brick. Where is Jones Beach? I cannot wait to relive that show, read my original review. Wish to be rendered speechless once again. We had a handle on it with a sweet trade going, and the taper said he would only trade shows recorded with Nak 700's, like he uses. Smack (him upside the noggin)!!! Nothing else will do. What is this, the music should be heard, and there is NOTHING wrong with my PNC discs. Anyone with Jones, please email, I have almost the entire tour, up to Virginia Beach...sorry no one set shows yet, for the southerners and will trade immediately.
Dewitt and Brick:
i was supposed to get jones beach from jill this weekend in exchange for michigan..never saw her...so, i'm guessing we will mail this to each other this week...let me know if you're still looking, i'll hook ya up....
Am I allowed to post my highlight!
My highlight of the tour has to be that I had the chance to meet new ppl like you guys on the zone!!
People like you guys helped bring back alot of memories and helped bring back all the hightimes I used to have! Thanx to all for the reviews and setlists.
I hoped to say that Ill be back into the groove for a while---Lord willing.
I think that Ive decided to do a spring tour(mini-tour). Ive got 3 weeks vacation and Im thinking on taking 1 week to do Phil on the east coast. I know that isnt much, but ive got to take the other two for my family.
If anybody is interested in hanging with me for a week in the spring , let me know.
Well again, this is my highlight of the tour, but I still love to hear Unbroken Chain. No matter what tour or when its on!!!!!
glad you're still on the bus, chuck
~right on Chuck~
y'all Jones Beach is in the air as we speak
ps~good dang thing you re-confirmed your addy scott!!!
the funky-ass 'hard to handle' and the power, and total surprise, of the kicking 'king solomon's' at eugene.
Charlotte - "Unbroken Chain">> "She said, She said"
i just wrote some pretty specific notes on Pine Knob but i'm not sure if i should post them..
this band gives us unique musical moments every show, it could be cool to compare shows from the same tour, different song versions, jams, (not that personal highlights aren't cool to hear, too) themes, segues, just a ton of fresh musical explorations these guys just took us on...
for instance, did anyone else catch the he's gone style jam this tour? did you hear the different melody line too? thats pretty cool stuff..
or how about the 7 special show jams? they were completely different, new (Pine Knob's was unlike any jam i've ever heard)...any thoughts on those?
any other instances of 2 -3 songs going on at once? how did they pull it off?
whats up Scott?
not much, chuck...how has that show you went to been replaying in your mind? any particular memorable moments? also, did cindy have a good time celebrating her bday?
He's Gone for about 10 minutes at Camden, for sure.
Also caught He's Gone in opening jams at Raleigh before Ramblin' Rose. It made a nice connection for me to the roots of the music.
I've recieved a summer tour compilation CD from the Odyssey of the Spirit 2001 ! It's about 6 or 7 songs (sbd) not availible as a download. I'll send a copy of the disc to the first person post a message here in response to the offer. I hope that whoever posts will offer the cd to others. I don't have burner capability. So, I'm giving away one on this site and one on the GD webpage (phil folder).
You'll see a photoscan/jpeg of the cd cover posted online here through a link. Hopefully you'll be able to download it. The burned discs will have the cd cover of course. If the cd is part of a tree, then perhaps the link will be useful. does that make sense? Anyway, the summer tour was perhaps one of the greatest in the history of Ratdog and P&F. Ever. Same goes for the 4 tours combined. Unreal. Unbroken.
shannon, would be interested in this, I'll make sure it makes it over to the tape/trade board ... do I have to be a volunteer of some-kind > that stipulation has prevented me from responding in the past posts ... e-mail on the way
Wonka, there is a CD for you. It's nice of you to see it to more fans. That in itself is a way of volunteering. You've got a good idea by requesting folks pledge time in their community. I'm not going to make any conditions. Hopefully, folks will be willing able to volunteer in the community.
This past weekend was characterized by the unexpected. Nothing to lose sleep over, I guess.
Anyway, the access to the scanner will take place later today (monday). Then, there will be links to the jpegs. Thanks.
For some odd reason, it is difficult to upload the joeg to any site. I amn unable ot link it at this time. Very kind folks in the lab assisted in seeing this through. Unfortunately, it is not possible at the moment.
the last 2/ most recent photos are found in this link. they are the pink p&f jpegs of the summer compilation cd.
For some odd reason, everything is working now.
I recomend downloading the jpegs from the above web link ASAP ....due to the limited time allowed on the host server/photo server. The pics are on a full page. You'll have to cut out the cd covers from the full 8x11 page.
right on. thanks! got 'em ... they look sweet.
