Phish Plays 50-Minute “Tweezer” In Memphis, On This Day In 1995 [Listen]

first_imgWhen scrolling through the glorious annals of Phish.net, one might notice there are almost too many great Phish shows which took place on June 14th to keep count. Over the years, the band from Vermont debuted “Piper”, “Twist”, “Saw It Again”, “Dirt”, and more in the same show on June 14th, 1997, and even jammed with Bruce Springsteen during a performance at Bonnaroo on June 14th, 2009. There was even a stand-out performance on June 14th, 2000 which took place in Japan, which included a grooving four-song second set and featured some great instrumental work from the quartet.For the life-long Phish fans, perhaps no song in the band’s repertoire (with the exception of, say, “Runaway Jim”) is better suited for long-stretching improvisation than “Tweezer”, which infamously made Phish 3.0 history on this day 25 years ago in 1995, when Phish unleashed a 50-minute monster jam within the framework of the song for their fans in Memphis, TN.Related: Phish (a.k.a. ‘Third Ball’) Debuts “Character Zero” And “Waste”, On This Day In 1996 [Listen]Take a moment to let those words sink in: a 50-minute “Tweezer. That’s two full episodes of How I Met Your Mother with some time leftover to bash the show’s terrible series finale.According to Phish.net, “This 50+ minute Tweezer included a brief ‘Gypsy Queen’ jam, a ‘2001’ tease, a ‘Slave’-like jam, and a Digital Delay Loop Jam with whistling.” Sure, you can reduce a jam of this magnitude to a simple sentence, but the best way to experience it is, of course, to listen.Without further ado, here’s the full audio from Phish’s June 14th, 1995 performance at the Mud Island Amphitheater in Memphis, TN with the above-mentioned legendary “Tweezer” coming in at the tail end of the band’s three-song encore.Phish – Mud Island Amphitheater – 6/14/95 [Full-Show Audio][Video: fromtheaquarium]Setlist: Phish | Mud Island Amphitheater | Memphis, TN | 6/14/95Set One: Don’t You Want To Go?, Gumbo > NICU, Mound, Cavern > Possum, All Things Reconsidered, Amazing Grace[1], The Horse > Silent in the Morning, Spock’s Brain > Split Open and MeltSet Two: Also Sprach Zarathustra > Poor Heart > Tweezer[2], Acoustic Army, While My Guitar Gently WeepsEncore: Simple[3], Rocky Top > Tweezer RepriseNotes:[1] Without microphones.[2] 50+ minutes; whistling.[3] A cappella ending.Teases:· Gypsy Queen, Also Sprach Zarathustra, and Slave to the Traffic Light jams in Tweezer· Stairway to Heaven tease· Jump Monk tease in Simple· Jean Pierre tease in Possumlast_img read more
