This is one of two Bloodkin shows that are being offered up as installments in this batch.

I transferred this one eons ago and just recently realized that I never uploaded it. The start of the show is clipped, but don’t let that dissuade you. All of the facets that I love from Bloodkin shows that appeared on the site previously are featured in this set. It’s gritty, it’s powerful, it’s worth your 5 mins to download and 100 minutes to listen to.

Goddamn I miss this band.

The summer of 2001 PLQ tour is a magical run. The entire tour. All of it. No duds. Complete fire every night.

The first time I ever used my D8 was 7/20/01, I saw 6 shows on this tour, I collected and listened to it voraciously in the years that followed, and I still love it to death.

7/24 is a show that I missed. I decided not to keep going west after SPAC and instead went south to the Jersey and Pennsylvania shows that followed. There’s not tons that I can say about this show that the music can’t say for me. The first set is very mellow, bluesy and methodical. The second set goes from Americana to Psychedelic at the drop of a hat and taken altogether this show is a perfect glimpse of the power and versatility of this band.

On top of it all, it’s an amazing, flawless recording. I suspect this is Ben Ersham’s rig, but I’m not positive if I got the tapes from him or not. They’ve been sitting in my collecting for years, waiting to be enjoyed.

Installment #820 – Phish 12/8/95 – CSU Convocation Center

Torrent Link: https://bt.etree.org/details.php?torrentId=617940
Archive Link: N/A
etreeID: https://etreedb.org/shn/163317

My 14 year old son is becoming a Phish aficionado which means I’ve probably done a pretty good job so far. He spends bus rides listening to whatever shows are available on Spotify, and anytime we’re in the car and he sees a show from 1995-1999 come on the Sirius machine, he asks if I was there. The general rule of thumb = if it happened from 95-99 in New England and most of New York then yes, I was almost certainly there. This alone has reinvigorated my love for 90’s Phish, though I still hesitate to upload Phish shows of any era because of the complaints that generally follow, but now that the bt.etree comments are turned off, people have to actually try hard to complain now. I anticipate this show will bring a few.

I have tons of Phish shows still on DAT. The majority of them are sources that are already circulated, but some of them are not. Like this one, which is sandwiched between legendary shows in the December ’95 tour. Prior to transferring this tape I honestly don’t think I previously experienced this one.

What stands out most to me is the sound and the energy. Trey shreds all show long. Bringing this back to my son who’s never been seen Phish live, but has watched probably 20 or so modern shows from the comfort of his living room, it brings me back to a time when each show was an legitimate experience and Trey was literally the man.

Sample gets things going, Runaway Jim and Fluffhead start to open things up and basically the entire second set should make this show a candidate for your speakers. There will be some more Phish coming in future installments, but only sources heretofor uncirculated. I hope you like them.

The fifteenth and final “NYE22” moe.down’s 1-3 installment is the final set of the final night of the third moe.down.

I’ve mentioned this probably a million times here but I do think that moe.down 3 was my favorite…it’s between this one and moe.down 5. Lots of good bands, not too big, not too small. Super comfortable and 2002 was good for me.

Solid show to end the festivities. Head as an opener has always been a favorite. Cornflake Girl was cool while it lasted. The moe./Galactic jam was just right timewise, and the second set is very mellow and deliberate. A good way to end a festival.

Thanks again to everyone who helped pull together these dribs and drabs of sets from the first three moe.downs to end ’22 and accidentally start ’23.

Well, I really fucked up this NYE22 thing. But like the wise JPR’s Grandpappy always said, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” Or, something like that.

Anyway. Sorry. But, hey, it turned out to be an unexpectedly busy NYE and I slipped into a massive burrito coma, changing my traditional last meal of the year from the long standing pile of sushi. Back to the moe.down.

I’m not one to sit normally sit down and throw some Robert Randolph on, but damnit if he doesn’t put on a hell of a show. I loved this set in the moment, and thought it was fantastic upon relisten. There are technical difficulties in the middle of the set, but the end of the set with Chuck is worth the download alone.

Two More to Go

I really messed up NYE this year. I underestimated how long it would take to comfortably put up 15 shows.

The process is that I generally like to put these up in groups of three, but I need to make sure there’s enough seeders to close down one batch before I start up another or else I just have to backtrack (and I find that annoying), and frankly, bt.etree isn’t what it once was traffic-wise. So, each year it takes me a little more time.

So, it turned into a three-day event. And, whatever, that’s ok.

Fifteen new sources from moe.downs past is a pretty decent take for shows that took place between 20 and 22 years ago. And also, lets not go through this group of shows without a massive thanks to Michael Schaefer for opening his archives which are the source for the majority of these 15, and to Matt Lazor for letting me patch into his rig two decades ago. This is something I did probably 5-6 times at various places around the county from 2001 – 2003 and for my money, his tapes are the gold fucking standard for sound. Period.

The last two sets will go up later this afternoon / early evening and then we will be back to regular patterns of shows. There are already six new installments ready to go and just for shits and giggles, I currently have over 80 shows already transferred from DAT that just need to be listened to and worked on to some degree before they’re ready to be posted. To be perfectly honest, I could probably not transfer a single additional tape in 2023 and still put up a healthy number of shows. It’s good times over here. You keep downloading and I’ll keep transferring.

That said…I’ve really enjoyed working on all of these moe. shows the past three years so much more that I reasonable expected, and even though there’s probably 25 or so more to go, I don’t want this to end. So, here’s my monthly call to all of you out there who for the past 15 plus years keep moving your boxes of DATs out of the way when you transfer you holiday decorations in and out of your attic to get in touch at thefurthurproject@gmail.com. I’d love to transfer them.

Somewhere someone is sitting around wishing they had a copy of a such and such show that you currently have the only tape of that is deteriorating quicker than the football season.

Speaking of which, who has my Kottke / Gordon show from Higher Ground in 2005?

I love me some TransAmericans, and this might be my favorite of all of their sets. The setlist runs the gamut…we got early moe. songs, we got straight up TransAmericans songs, we got covers, and Al seems particularly into it.

Maybe one day we can get a modern day run of TransAmericans shows again.

This show has been circulated previously with a half a dozen sources already out there. But this is a new source from Michael Schaefer which has that Schaeferian sound and feel to it.
