Jam Chart for shows in the city of Telluride, CO (13 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1988-07-30 Timber Ho Telluride, CO 11:19 Band jams out in customary fashion, then breaks into a second, more upbeat jam coming out of the first groove. An excellent recording of this is available from LivePhish on the Colorado '88 release.
1988-07-30 Antelope Telluride, CO 10:47 Sweet Mike in a straightforward jam, then hilarious Trey banter near the conclusion referencing Fish's mysterious and unexpected absence earlier in the show. Excellent quality recording available from Live Phish for $0.99.
1988-08-03 Mike's Telluride, CO 12:17 Another very improvisational early version with jamming that goes all over the place. Perhaps a bit noodly at first, after 6:55 the quality improves markedly. Mike is also notable for excellent play throughout. Recall that this was just 4 guys in an empty bar in Telluride, CO.
1988-08-05 YEM Telluride, CO 17:29 Colorado '88 version. Excellent segue into "Cities."
1988-08-05 Cities Telluride, CO 4:44 "Dave's Energy Guide" ("DEG") is played towards the end of the song before a brief return to "Cities." "DEG" would be played within "Cities" again on 8/22/88, 9/8/88, 9/13/88, and 3/1/89 in a similar manner.
1988-08-05 DEG Telluride, CO 1:25 -> in from "Cities" and -> back to "Cities."
1988-08-05 Cities Telluride, CO 0:37 -> in from "DEG." Returns to "Cities" briefly to conclude.
1991-10-28 Bowie Telluride, CO 12:37 -> in from "Fee." Hits a melodic, major mode groove briefly before descending back into darkness.
2010-08-09 Sand Telluride, CO 12:09 This version opened the floodgates for the modern "Sand" resurgence as Mike improvised his bass line rather than sticking to the fixed groove, adding another element of improvisation. Trey's uncompressed growl and Mike's playing through the envelope filter in the first half of the jam add cool textures. Short outro jam and a > into "Backwards Down the Number Line."
2010-08-09 Caspian Telluride, CO 8:21 > in from "BDTNL." Some really beautiful playing by Trey initially, then the band shifts into a slightly dissonant and spacey foray with a > to "Tweezer."
2010-08-09 Boogie On Telluride, CO 8:23 Segues out of "Tweezer". Manteca tease from Page in the "plinko" jam with some footbell action from Mike.
2010-08-09 Piper Telluride, CO 13:32 This is a really strong Piper by most standards, but especially by 2010 standards. They careen through the song at a breakneck pace, build tension, and explode, and the jam ends in a semi-ambient space.
2010-08-10 Carini Telluride, CO 8:36 A very dark version, but one that also gets away from "Carini" proper. A nice funky Mike-led groove breaks first, but then turns chilling, ominous, and spacey, and includes a "One Of These Days" (Pink Floyd) quote from Fish, and an "Echoes" (Pink Floyd) tease from Page. > to "Free."
