Episode 30: Good Lord, Was it Alright.

Listen to Episode 30

By the time you are reading this, Phish will have completed Leg 2 of their 2011 Summer Tour, but here at type II cast, we are just starting the reviews. This week, Scotty, Drew, and Eric tackle the first 3 shows, both Gorge and the Hollywood Bowl. As usual, we selected a few clips to highlight what makes these shows stand out. And we tried not to let future events effect our opinions, though Drew does step into the future machine once.

This post is gonna be another “No Spoilers” episode, as knowing the clips ahead of time could bias some of you out there. Feel free to voice your opinion below, we all check the blog from time to time.

Thanks to all the loyal listeners out there, stay tuned as next week we discuss Tahoe and Outside Lands.

Episode 16: Great Woods, Or Mediocre Woods?

Listen to Episode 16

This week, Eric, Drew and myself tackle a “venue review”, and discuss the 14 shows that occurred since 1992 at a little place us phans like to call Great Woods, despite that it has changed names a few times. (We don’t bother to look as to what it is actually called these days, insert jaded vet remark). What we did look for, were tasty clips as to highlight some of the better moments throughout the years. As Drew notes at one point, we could have spent “too much time” in 93-95, so instead, we opted to spread the clip love out amongst the years. Plenty of great moments in 99, 00, and we even found 1 in 04. But in all seriousness, we feel that the boys have strategically placed Great Woods in the tour depending upon their needs. It was once a 2 night weekend stand, needed to ensure ticket sales were good. Now its a Tuesday night with no shows before or after, since they know sales will do well. In the end, we find there were many great moments at this Massachusetts traffic debacle, and we hope there are many more.

Thanks for listening, we will see you guys next week with a review of August 1993.

Episode 14: Best of 2010, Part 2

Listen to Episode 14

Continuing where we left off from last week, the crew counts down to the #1 best jam of the year. This week we have a full house with Eric, Scotty, Drew and Tanya joining me and a full episode clocking in at just over 1 hour. Despite being possibly our biggest episode to date, we only saw one “technical difficulty”, which I chose to leave in as it resulted in some comical banter. Without a doubt, the crew did a fantastic job defending their top picks, or arguing against some. Listen now for no spoilers, or get a peak at the top five after the jump.

Episode 11: I Drove 5 Hours to Worcester and All I Got Was a Hood.

Listen to Episode 11

Hey everybody and Happy New Year. For our first episode of 2011, we totally broke all the rules. We should have done the show yesterday, but the studio wasn’t cooperating and we had sound problems. Eric Wyman was feeling under the weather and could not make it. Drew had to skype in from Syngapore. And we started the show with a 9 minute clip. Also, we had no show notes going into this episode, which is also a first. A true type II show.

In regards to our review of “Woosta”, we definitely all agreed it had its moments, but overall was choppy and the “phlow” just was not there. Take the title with a grain of salt though, we by no means hated on it, and both Sam and I are glad we made the trip. As you will be able to tell by the clips, we found some gems. A new type of jamming has started to emerge in the 3.0, and these 2 shows were the springboard for what will come at MSG.
