    The second soundcheck to recently surface from @Tweeprise on Twitter takes place at one of the most unique venues in Phish history. I bring back Dave Calarco,@mrminer to help us get a glimpse of what this crazy town was like. We talk venue, musical highlights, and then I play for you the 40 minute soundcheck which features Phish working on tracks from The Story of the Ghost album.

    We go back in time yet again! @Tweeprise on Twitter recently put out 2 new soundchecks that had never been released! This is one of the crazier venues we've covered and rock some "Character Zero>Funky Bitch". The bonus track is an excellent Type 1 "David Bowie".

    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.

    The Daily Soundcheck Ep 76-06/15/2000 Big Cat, Chuo-ka, Osaka, Japan ("Heavy Things>Uncle Pen>The Happy Whip and Dung Song>Windora Bug")

    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".

    The Daily Soundcheck Ep 75-6/14/2000 Drum Logos, Fukuoaka, Japan Part 2B Redux Electric Boogaloo Revisited Continued Sequel Reprise ("Live and Let Die>Bond Themes>Windora Bug>Mic Check>Funky Bitch")

    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.

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.
