93. “Love You” (Barrett) This third set New Years jam was tied to the night's oceanic gag theme, in which the set was turned into a ship, and synchronized wristbands on the audience turned the venue into a rolling ocean. Those positive vibes culminated in Phish's most successful post-haitus run. However, the reality is that the model (like us humans) is very good at learning the songs that occur in a few particular patterns and pretty bad at the rest. “Vibration of Life” “The Happy Whip and Dung Song” 131. 328. “Ha Ha Ha” “Lonesome Cowboy Bill” (Lou Reed) It’s about the divorce Trey and I never got.” The dress-wearing drummer has used the spotlight to deliver wrong and strong scary-oke takes on Syd Barrett, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Neil Diamond, and, most recently, Phish (a dismissive version of noted fan-unfavorite “Jennifer Dances”). “Heavy Things” The Mockingbird Foundation. “Sexual Healing” (Marvin Gaye) 257. 252. Part dark Phish, part rocker, part funkytown, this Kill Devil Falls works patiently through twenty-three minutes towards a beautiful peak. “Cry Baby Cry” (Lennon-McCartney) 106. The Siket Disc, which contains interesting one-shots like the Eno-esque “Quadrophonic Toppling” (No. This show represents the audible decision by Phish to start veering away from cowfunk, and to begin experimenting heavily with space and ambient jamming. 2012-08-31 UndermindDicks Sporting Goods Park, Commcerce City, Colorado. “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” (Jagger/Richards) 177. 2019-02-22 Set your Soul Free -> MercuryRiviera Maya, Mexico. 88. Marshall’s favorite element solidifies and threatens in this remarkable Rift meditation on reality and illusion. 2003-02-28 Bathtub GinNassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, New York. This Ghost encapsulates Phish's transition into fall 1997 cowfunk. This ASIHTOS is spellbinding and it exemplifies a new sound the band is toying with in the second half of 2017. The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.. And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! “And So to Bed” “Access Me” 309. Eventually, though, it evolves into a Zen-like contemplation of silent trees. “Sanity” 87. 149. This version has great textures and a beautiful build. After a few years working as a data scientist in industry, I set out to uncover the statistical patterns hidden in Phish’s song choices and build a model to predict what songs are coming next. So far, we’ve distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way. Anything shorter and the model can’t learn certain dependencies, anything longer and the model loses focuses and emphasizes learning the less important long term dependencies. 2012-09-01 Golden Age -> Prince Caspian -> LightDick's Sporting Good Park, Commerce City, Colorado. “Shafty” Ma Baby” (231) and “Sweet Adeline” (233) tapped into a style that originated when African-American men socialized together in barbershops. “Fikus” “Shine” (Ed Roland) Marshall, who has referred to the Gamehendge song cycle as Phish’s “Jesus Christ Superstar,” named many of its main characters in this art-rocking minisuite. Some of their best music, impromptu jams and such, has emerged surreptitiously (see The Victor Disc) and sometimes legitimately, e.g. OH GOD, PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!! Phish — an iconic, live rock & roll band, and the world of machine learning…what can they possibly have in common? 22. 302. “Mountains in the Mist” A dog has run away from his master, and is tearing across the world. “Horn”. 2019-12-30 TweezerRadio City Music Hall, New York, New York. 3. As shown below, Phish played the majority of their shows in the early 90’s (128 shows in 1994!) 4. 181. Epitomizing the carnivalesque magic of Phish’s oeuvre, this deliciously woozy 1989 blend of Anastasio’s music and friend Susannah Goodman’s through-the-looking-glass lyrics leads to some sublimely sloshed improvisations. 270. “Scents and Subtle Sounds” 2017-12-28 No Men in No Man's Land -> TwistMadison Square Garden, New York, New York. “What’s the Use?” 1999-07-20 GhostMolson Amphitheatre, Toronto, Ontario. “Brother” 174. Trey finally grabbed it from my pile years later and we changed it immensely. 280. Consequently, this is a very difficult problem to model. This compact 13 minute Sand from the 2000 summer tour stands among the other finest Sand's for its unique groove-based jam. 1997-08-17 Down with Disease -> Bathtub GinLoring Commerce Centre, Limestone, Maine. 274. 226. Highly recommended for long road trips. This version of Boogie On is also one of the best representatives of Phish's 'millenial style jamming'- hypnotic, droning layers of sound and darker guitar work. “Kill Devil Falls” 313. The title of this Story of the Ghost track (originally the instrumental “Black-Eyed Katy”) puns preciously on “the moment ends” while hardcore Phish funk sexes up a sexy sailing scenario involving “a frothy cap” and “steady slap.”. 199. 36. If you’ve never worn tie-dye, you still might be able to get through this song. “Pig in a Pen” (Traditional) This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music. This David Bowie sandwich is a testament to the strength of Phish's type I jamming in 1997, where the jam doesn't stray too far from the main themes of the song, but manages to rise into exhilarating territory nonetheless. The salient facts are that this is a song with (a) a blatant drug reference and (b) a minimum of white-boy reggae rhythms, which makes it about as good as a Phish song gets. 205. “Alaska” What do these learned embeddings actually represent? 190. “Sand” The jam, which explores darkness and bright, ambient space, was the best Phish jam of 2016. “A Day in the Life” (Lennon/McCartney) The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.. And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! Phish Downloads. 1999-09-14 AC/DC Bag -> GumboLoring Commerce Center, Limestone, Maine.

Bright, sharp playing from the entire band on the last night of the famous Island Tour. 129. “AC/DC Bag” Gotta Jibboo -> Limb by LimbSaratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, New York. 308. John Bonham’s primal thunder informs the sound of Jon Fishman (who went on to develop his own singularly chameleonic style). “Birds of a Feather” This thirty-three minute Talking Heads cover is rich with warm hues and interesting segues. “Party Time” 52. (I also “figured out” the Grateful Dead during the same period, but that required the assistance of a tank of nitrous oxide that someone we knew had mysteriously acquired on the New Jersey waterfront.). “Johnny B. Goode” (Chuck Berry) This final night, centered around a Glazed Donut theme, featured an amazing Simple, which featured weird and funky synth effects by Page McConnell, as well as the rare use of his Soviet theramin instrument. Lists \ All 333 Phish Songs, Ranked Sure, you can cheat and scroll down to the top 20. This long segment of four songs is like a single idea, even though it pulses through cowfunk, ambient space grooves and Hendrix-era Rock. Anastasio snuck a knotty instrumental interlude and dance — “The Landlady” — into the middle of this high-energy Latin-tinged spinoff of his Goddard College Senior Study, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday, AKA Gamehendge. This Beneath a Sea of Stars, one of the first ever played by Phish, broke out of its shell as Trey led the band through melodic, spacey themes that made this sixteen minute jam one of the standouts of the summer. In an amazing residency, this may be the single best jam segment. 172. They took this challenge so seriously that they installed bathrooms on stage and hired security guards who were ordered to keep them from leaving the stage. “Joy” — This song “started out as an anthem to our daughters,” says Marshall, “the embodiment of joy. The delights of walk-in refrigeration, into which other songs are frequently inserted, have never been so alluring. “When the Circus Comes” “Mock Song” Phish’s most Phish-like cover was written by Bahamas songwriter Cyril Ferguson, recorded by the Mustangs, and features an extended Page solo over its quasi-calypso rhythm. 21. It became apparent that a larger embedding size gave a slight improvement to the overall classification accuracy (~21%) because it allowed the model to learn more nuanced features for each song. 327. “Cities” 100. With the language modeling approach in hand, I generated training data by first dropping incomplete setlists and then concatenating together every setlist chronologically into one long list and encoding the data — song-to-integer for each of the 876 unique songs, plus all setlist identifiers. Unlike the other long Simple of 2017, this one explores more creative and dark spaces. Segments from the first and second sets of this night of the Island Tour are twin masterpieces. © 1990-2020 The Mockingbird Foundation, Inc. | Hosted by. The Drowned that opens this stunning set is a masterpiece of weird, spacey improvisation. I have never been able to get enough of this sound that was really unique to the second half of 1997. Phish channels the sublime in this Undermind sailor’s song attached to the sort of floating groove no other band so instinctually evokes. “Avenu Malkenu” (Traditional) 2017-08-06 Simple -> Rise/Come Together -> “Aftermath” “Wingsuit” I began by toggling my embedding vector sizes from a fixed length of 50 to 100, 150, 200, and 250. 75. It's on the house. 48. “Weigh” This instrumental jam, which eventually developed into The Moma Dance, packs a punch as a tight, little jam. “Punch You in the Eye” 19. A tightly wound composed section containing all manner of rhythmo-harmonic chutes and ladders uncoils into an improvisation-rich starship in this slice of inspired precocity. “Sing Monica” 108. One of the keys to the best Phish is the word patient. “Jesus Just Left Chicago” (Billy Gibbons/Frank Beard/Dusty Hill) 227. 204. After years of unspectacular 3.0 Tubes, Phish starts to let loose with this straight-to-jamming jam. Although it never saw a recording studio, this catchy electric-bluegrass ode to a larcenous canine launched one of Phish’s longest jams, an inspired hour-long Worcester epic, in 1997. “Big Ball Jam” The cowfunk-psychedelia-shredding-ambient jams of Phish are like nothing else, and they go hand in hand with the road. 90. To many, this is the most flawless and intense. 232. 25.
