    Cactus: Marco GRABs Mike Gordon For Burlington Guest Spot (VIDEO) [Hidden Track]

    Phish bassist Mike Gordon has been making the most of his time off from touring by sitting in with jam stalwarts the Spin DoctorsJackie Greene and now old pal Marco Benevento within the past few weeks in his hometown of Burlington. Marco, along with bassist Dave Dreiwitz and drummer Andy Borger, is smack dab in the middle of a four-week residency at Burlington’s Radio Bean coffeehouse and invited Cactus out for the start of the second set. Gordon replaced Dreiwitz for a jazzy version of Green Onions (Booker T. and the MGs) and Benevento’s intense cover of Deerhoof’s Twin Killers that included teases of Rhapsody In Blue and Bathtub Gin.

    Burlington: Trey Anastasio – After The Flood [Burlington Free Press]

    Trey, normally a loquacious fellow, didn’t speak a whole lot during the show, but did note that he, Markellis and drummer Russ Lawton played the second-ever show at Higher Ground, in the old Winooski location 13 years ago. ”Our next song will be a 13-year-long jam,” Trey said, and the crowd cheered. Instead, he and the band launched into what he called a “world premiere,” a tune called “Snake Head Thumb,” which began with a bluesy guitar intro befitting a song with a name like that and the esoteric lyric “There’s a man I know with a snake head thumb/Just walk by and your body goes numb.”

    This tape belongs in an Archive. In this era of TS->InterWebstreaming and immediate MP3 post-show downloading, this tape is an historical artifact in the history of recorded live music. It is also one of those recordings that somehow managed to escape the tape collections of many of the most obsessive-compulsive Phish tape collectors in history. Of course, its failure to circulate widely in the previous 26 years may have resulted from its quality. (I’d have probably given it a “C-/D+” on my last tapelist, circa 2000.)

    -Prior to Letter to Jimmy Page, Trey announced that per “Del’s” request, they were going to play Letter to Jimmy Page as a band, and then Fish would play it by himself (telling the crowd that Fish didn’t know it)
    -YEM was dedicated to Del
    -This show included the first known Phish performance of St. Thomas.
    -La Grange was dedicated to Mike.
    -Note that Trey refers to Tela as a debut at this show, though it actually debuted on 3/12/88.
    -Note the jam in this Tela sounds an aweful lot like Split Open and Melt.
    -Big Leg Emma was played for the first time since May 3, 1985 (100 shows).

    *Caveat Emptor*
    – Source info is questionable. This is what was on the DAT.
    – The show is riddled with cuts. I crossfaded most all of them. Some were left as-is.
    – Set 3 is loaded with digital errors. I ran a couple of de-click and de-crackle plugins to lessen the harshness of the errors. This is by no means perfect, but here it is at long last.

    This appears to have circulated online in low gen in the past, but without the Fee. I have no idea why. This is the complete show, and since it is nearly the 20th anniversary of the show, it is about time it gets circulated online in complete form.

    The online Spreadsheet doesn’t have this show complete yet, though presumably it will use this version soon. I don’t believe that a higher quality (overall) version of this show circulates, but there are a few cuts and flaws here and there, like at the beginnings of Gin, Oh Kee Pa and In A Hole. There is also a cut after Divided and a fade out in the transition between Fee and Possum because of the tape flips. I could have cut this fade out, but I didn’t want to upset the “integrity” of the original copy, which kinda seems silly upon reflection. But whatever.
