Subject: Know Your Phishstory, #1

A lot of tape lists I've seen over the past couple of years don't have much
Phish prior to 1995. In an effort to bring to light some sets/shows that are
worth seeking out, may I present this little series. Charlie Dirksen has a
lengthy list on the new HFB page of 1985-96 shows, and I'm not going to repeat
the ones he's listed. However, there are some notable omissions that I will
write about.  So, to begin, let's travel back to...1989.

10.26.89 set 2, Wetlands Preserve, NYC

Without question this is my favorite set of the 1980s.  It's got a dream
setlist, some segues that are incredible, some great jamming, and a little
goofiness.  First the setlist:

Who Knows Jam > Dinner and a Movie > The Chase > Who Do? We Do! > AC/DC Bag >
Reba > Walk Away, Bathtub Gin > The Sloth, Fluff's Travels > Possum, Punch Me
in the Eye, In a Hole, Gall Swerves and the Rest is Everything Else, No Dogs
Allowed, David Bowie

The Who Knows jam (it's NOT Good Morning Little Schoolgirl as popular opinion
claims) is brief but pretty cool, and fades out into Dinner.  From then on
they basically don't stop playing till after Possum.  The segues in and out of
the different parts of Fluff's Travels are incredible.  Bag and Walk Away are
both very strong.  The Reba has the long lost "Bag it Tag it" jam which
features some peppy Mike.  The Reba and Gin jams don't stray too far from how
they appear on Lawn Boy; I'm pretty sure they were both very new at this
point.  The segue from Fluff's Travels into Possum is masterful.  A brief
break after Possum when Trey introduces a "fresh number," "Punch Me in the
Eye".  Followed up with another new one, jokingly called, "What You Will" sung
by Page "Tex" McConnell.  It's In a Hole, with its classic last line, "I'm in
*a* hole!"  (Say it out loud, accent the A).  Then Fish takes center stage, to
recite a "serious poem", "About my lifetime, my history, my homeland."  He
calls it "Gall Swerves and the Rest is Everything Else" but it was later
published in a Schvice with the title "Sleepwalk."  Towards the end he screws
up and starts again from the middle, which prompts Trey's laughing comment,
"One more time!"  Next comes a song by Trey's mom, who's in attendence that
evening.  "No Dogs Allowed," which I wish they'd bring back.  Finally, a
pretty cool Bowie ends the set, along with a long-ish "Space Oddity" jam
during the hi-hat intro.

There are crispy tapes out there, and I recommend that you try and track one
down.  After I go through a decent number of shows I'll do an offer for all of

08/08/2002 Peter G I have this show on tape that includes Bowie, There's a lot of Hiss on the tape, but the Bowie is a must hear.
02/02/2004 dylan it almost sounds to me as a cass/0 or cass/1....sounds great and comparing it to the other '89 shows from then it sounds a low cass. generation????
my .02
02/02/2004 twatts Just wondering, in the text file, how does a tape go from Cass(x) to MCass... In otherwords, how does an unknown generation tape get COPIED and become the Master???

I'm thinking its a typo, that SBD>Cass(x)>DAT is correct.


09/18/2004 Chris Jones "MCass" probably refers to a metal cassette, not a master.
09/21/2004 Diana Casting my mind back to how some rmper's of the day were thinking, it might have been in this case: MCass = the cass someone had in hand to do the digital move with. :/
