    The Daily Soundcheck Ep 77-06/16/2000 Zepp, Suminoe-ku, Osaka, Japan "Zepp Osaka Jam>Jam>Twist Jam>"I Can't Wait to Go Back Home" Jam>Another One Bites the Dust Jam")

    The Daily Soundcheck Ep 77-06/16/2000 Zepp, Suminoe-ku, Osaka, Japan "Zepp Osaka Jam>Jam>Twist Jam>"I Can't Wait to Go Back Home" Jam>Another One Bites the Dust Jam")

    The last of my four part Japan series with Dave Calarco finishes with a beast. The second set opens with 45 minutes of boundary pushing Phish with "Runaway Jim->Theme->Dog Faced Boy". The soundcheck is one of the greats, with sick grooves based around Trey spitting hilarious improv comedy. This is also one of 6 shows ever to feature "Reba", "Slave To The Traffic Light", and "Harry Hood" all in the same show. Phish and Japan was something special.

    So how do you follow up one of the most legendary Phish shows of all time? Well the next night you play only 14 songs TOTAL! Among those are all time versions of "Ghost" and "DWD" and a great "YEM". Dave Calarco aka Mr. Miner is back with me to try and break it all down. The soundcheck includes a rare version of "The Happy Whip and Dung" and a hilarious look behind what was going on with the Phish stage crew taking place in "Windora Bug".

    I wished in Episode 75 that the rest of the Drum Logos Soundcheck would be released someday. Well my wish was granted! Apparently it was circulating from an old version of the spreadsheet and Michael Callahan @mjcallahan7 on Twitter sent me the rest! So here ya go! Get ready to laugh, this soundcheck is bonkers. James Bond themes and stories about Pete Carini and Fishman's drum kit.

    The Daily Soundcheck Ep 74-06/13/2000 Club Quattro Naka-ku, Nagoya, Japan ("Ginseng Sullivan>Jam>Crossroads>Say My Name>O Yeah!")

    We have ventured into Japan! I've brought along my friend Dave Calarco aka Mr. Miner to help me navigate! Dave attended the entire run and will be my guest for the next five episodes giving a first hand account on these unique shows. In this episode Dave's recaps the first 3 Japan shows and then we talk about the 6/13/2000 Club Quatrro show. The soundcheck is fun with "Ginseng Sullivan" a spacey "Jam", an awesome "Crossroads" and some crazy Phish in "Say My Name>O Yeah!".

    One of the more intimate shows in modern Phish, the 3,200 seat Roseland Ballroom was an incredibly tough ticket. Filmed for VH1 this soundcheck features fun takes on many classics. A thirteen song soundcheck with one of the coolest venue histories make this one fun episode!

History

I love this podcast. Great combination of interviews, music, and Phish history. My favorite Phish podcast. Thank you

The Japan podcasts are especially great. Mr Miner paints beautiful picture

Great idea for a pod, well executed!

Really interesting to follow this one from the beginning -- I was late to catch on, but am about 1/2 way through and it just keeps getting better. Super interesting to hear the band evolve over time, and to get a little behind the scenes look in a well-organized way. Lawn Memo has great insights and excellent taste when it comes to featured tracks from the soundchecked shows and pointing out what to listen for. Great listen!

Lawn Memo

Lawn Memo once again brings it, with his historical knowledge and deep cuts into the Phish catalog. A fantastic listening experience that’s both informative, and uncommonly heard. His pairing of storytelling and perspective goes together like a rose’ and spring salad. Would recommend to any music fan.
