January 13th, 2011 No comments

Phish Mailorder Stub Red Rocks 08/06/96

Tuesday, 08/06/1996
Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO

Set 1: Makisupa Policeman, Rift, Suzy Greenberg[1] > Simple, Theme From the Bottom, The Lizards, Dinner and a Movie, Horn, Run Like an Antelope[2]

Set 2: The Curtain > Tweezer[3], Prince Caspian, A Day in the Life, Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Hold Your Head Up > Purple Rain > Hold Your Head Up, Harry Hood[4] > Tweezer Reprise

Encore: Johnny B. Goode

[1] Simple tease.
[2] “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas.”
[3] Norwegian Wood jam.
[4] Debut of “Hood” response chant.

Notes: Note the “This is Red Rocks, This is the Edge” quote from Trey during the break in Rift. The quote was a reference both to U2’s Live: Under a Blood Red Sky album and Trey’s similar remarks on the Junta-released version of Icculus. Suzy included a Simple tease. The phrase “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas” during Antelope in reference to a fan’s quote in a newspaper article on the disturbance in Morrison the day before. Tweezer included a Norwegian Wood jam. Harry Hood featured the debut of the “Hood” response chant, initiated by Phish.netters and advertised on flyers handed out at the Red Rocks shows. Among other ideas, the flyers encouraged fans to shout: “Hood” after the band sings “Harry.” It began to rain in the second set; the band responded with Purple Rain, and Chris Kuroda showed the stage in purple lights. The performance of Simple from this gig appears on the Carved in Stone CD benefiting The Rocks Fund, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Notes: During Ya Mar, Trey thanked the audience, saluted a Colorado swimmer who won two gold medals at the Olympics, and announced that a special guest would come out later in the set. The last three songs of the first set were all Phish debuts and featured Tim O’Brien on mandolin, acoustic guitar and lead vocals. During the Forbin’s narration, Trey told of a giant iguana that would take the crowd to Mars to view the life there.

[4] Dave Grippo on alto saxophone.
[5] Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on trombone, and Joey Sommerville on trumpet.
[6] Phish debut; acoustic.

Notes: Harpua included a story from Mike about a dream about raccoons. The Michael Jackson references continued, as Trey teased the audience by saying that Jimmy was listening to the Halloween album while the band played a Beat It tease. Also, the second set was preceded by a Thriller tease. The second set “musical costume” was The Who’s Quadrophenia and was performed with Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on trombone, Joey Sommerville on trumpet and Alan Parshley on French horn. During Bell Boy, crew member Leigh Fordham, clad in a bell boy outfit, sang Keith Moon’s original part. All of the Quadrophenia songs, as well as My Generation, were Phish debuts. YEM was almost 40 minutes long and was preceded by the audience chess move. The chosen fan, dressed as a Wookie, cracked under the pressure and could not choose a move on stage, prompting a quote from Fish that “Wookies can’t play chess.” Jesus Just Left Chicago featured Grippo on alto saxophone; Suzy Greenberg featured Grippo, Glasgo and Somerville. My Generation was performed acoustic. Before My Generation, the crew set up a Keith Moon replica drum set on stage. After the song, Fishman and Trey destroyed the drum set a la The Who. Finally, a stagehand brought out a large plunger. Trey pressed it and set off a huge explosion backstage. This show was officially released as Live Phish 14.
