I really dig this
Avatar 12:09am Jeff Conklin:

Total nod to Trey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am Erik in Michigan:

Love hearing totally new music with big wide open spaces inside - just waiting to be explored live
  12:17am rw:

Jeff! We're here. This Wm. Tyler has a very similar riff to a John Prine song called I Wish You all the Best
  12:18am rw:

Very nice.
Avatar 12:18am Franco Twinkie:

Freshly washed and ready to relax...Hey Jeff!
  12:19am rw:

Franco, you smell nice.
Avatar 12:21am Franco Twinkie:

Thanks, RW. And thanks for suggesting chili, It really came together.
  12:25am opurt:

Good evening! Got home a little later than planned but really enjoying this set.
  12:25am rw:

Con carne or veggie? Either way I'm sure it was great. Perfect chili day. Plus I can't imagine making corn bread without chili.
  12:27am rw:

We stuffed ourselves on homemade tacos this evening. We've been figuring out how to make tortillas. Pretty simple. Don't know why we never had before.
Avatar 12:30am northguineahills:

Making elote a la parilla con mayo, limon, queso de cortija, y tejin. (chili/lime salt)
Avatar 12:31am northguineahills:

@Franco: I, too, just showered....
Avatar 12:31am Franco Twinkie:

Grass fed beef, slowly braised. I couldn't get home fast enough tonight to eat some.

Flour or corn? I like to do both. Corn is more difficult, but worth it. I get my masa from this Mexican market in Pasadena where they grind the corn to order.
Avatar 12:34am northguineahills:

@Franco: just corn on the cob....(the only Spanish I know is from my wife, and futbol, which she hates).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35am Erik in Michigan:

Every time I hear something from Michael Chapman it makes me want to seek out more.
  12:37am pp:

this has the melody of these days by Jackson Browne
  12:38am rw:

Sounds delicious FT! Seems like you're light years ahead of us. We just started about a week ago with corn flour. Maybe I should try flour.
Avatar 12:39am Franco Twinkie:

NGH. We use to live next door to a soccer(futbol)field, where teams from all over Mexico would kick it. Afterwards, it was a sea of elotes in the parkway and street.
  12:40am rw:

ngh, you can get corn this time of year? And I'm going to stop talking about food now...
  12:41am Steubs:

Jeff!! Thanks for coming by tonight to listen tonight! Back at home grooving out to this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am Erik in Michigan:

I lived in Japan for ~2 years in the mid-00's, and have a somewhat complicated relationship with the place. It's a crazy/amazing place, but it was a somewhat difficult time for me. Hearing amazing Japanese folk/psych like this is always interesting to me since it was just so far away from the experience I had over there (mostly driven by work).
Avatar 12:47am northguineahills:

@Franco: When I met her, she lived next to the stadium in Monterrey (Nuevo Leon), and saw the worst of football fan behavior, which turned her off to the sport. Then she met a gringo who's a soccer nut, and she's still not sure how that happened.

@Erik: I lived in Japan for 3 years, although I was a kid...
  12:47am rw:

Erik, yeah, that Makoto Kubota was pretty great. I liked the amalgam of styles. May have to look that one up...
Avatar 12:49am Franco Twinkie:

Yes, Harina is much easier. Corn doesn't have much gluten it seems, so it's harder to keep them it one piece. But it just takes practice. You want to be humbled and encouraged, just go to Cinco Puntos next to the graveyard in East L.A. and watch the way the pros slap them out by hand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am Erik in Michigan:

Dire Wolves just keep putting out incredible stuff
Avatar 12:50am Jeff Conklin:

Did anybody hear any distortion on the Japanese track?
  12:51am rw:

FT, My daughter has been spending time in Oaxaca. She says it's amazing how they make tortillas by hand there. I tried tonight but just made a mess.

Jeff, none that I noticed but I've got the volume pretty low.
Avatar 12:55am northguineahills:

@Franco: when it comes to anything Mexi cooking (except meat), I'm a pro, just ask my wife. She taught me the ropes, and I perfected it.

@rw:Oaxaca has the best food in Mexico, IMHO. I just got some chili crickets and queso Oaxaca, and intend to make huitlacoche/potato soup next weekend.
  12:56am Steubs:

No distortion on this end prior to wolves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58am mb:

Broadcaster Jeff, im here for you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am Erik in Michigan:

@Jeff have you been listening to Phish all along, or did you recently re-enter that orbit?
  1:01am Sarri Greece:

I feel very lucky that I found you and listen you from Greece
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am Erik in Michigan:

Duuuuude - i just listened to this show the other day! So sick!!!! China rider bust out in the first set too. Really dug it
  1:04am Sarri Greece:

It s 8 o clock in the morning here and a big sun is here!!!!!
Love for you guys!
Avatar 1:04am Jeff Conklin:

Thank you , mb. And thank you, Sarri.

@Erik: They havent been a regular part of my listening diet for a good 15 years but every now and then I go on little trips. Havent seen them in about 5 years now....
  1:05am moklemz:

Enjoying the show on the ride home- great sounds - and great to meet ya! Thanks for coming to troost✌
  1:09am Jeff Conklin:

There’s nothing better than a big sun with a big cup of coffee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am Erik in Michigan:

Phish is in a good zone right now - definitely worth seeing, but I get it that in NYC it's a kinda crazy ticket.

Really loved this '79 show. I'm doing the listen along thing and stoked to get into 79 more. There's some really great stuff in 78-early 79, but it does kinda feel like they were ready for some new blood (easy to say in hindsight).
  1:12am Jeff Conklin:

Jerry’s so on. Great audience recording too. No SBD of this set circulates.
  1:14am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah I heard some stuff from the MSG run that sounded great. Honestly, part of what phish was for me was the road tripping. Not too interested in ever seeing a show at MSG again. Wanted to hit the Maine shows this summer but it’s not gonna happen
  1:15am Jeff Conklin:

Keith is really on auto pilot I think that’s why Jerry is lighting it up so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am Erik in Michigan:

Keith in this era was really show to show - and the band kind of reacted in different ways to it. here, it's like Jerry just decided to take over
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18am Erik in Michigan:

finally had his voice back too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am Erik in Michigan:

I have tickets to see Phish @ Alpine Valley this summer, but that place seems like a massive pain in the ass so i'm sorta questioning it
Avatar 1:20am Jeff Conklin:

I'd love to see a show at Alpine. I actually got offered free tickets to the NYE show and such is my disdain for Manhattan and NYE, I declined....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am mb:

Camden is a great urban road trip. I do 2 shows a year. Always get my moneys worth. Phish #1.

Phil is sitting in the pocket nicely from the start. Filling in the blanks.
Avatar 1:21am Jeff Conklin:

Camden is fine if youre not trying to get there from North Brooklyn on a Friday afternoon of a summer holiday weekend. Almost abandoned my car on Canal street en route to DeadCo last summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am Erik in Michigan:

The AUD tapes starting getting really good around this era, at least most consistently
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28am mb:

DJ JC will you ever do Phish sets like you do Dead sets here later in your career? Keep in mind the core fan base is not getting any younger.
Avatar 1:29am Jeff Conklin:

What core fan base? Phish's or mine? Ha.

I don't see that happening but you never know....
  1:39am Eric Fladen:

where was this show performed? it sounds like a show I saw so long ago in englishtown
Avatar 1:41am Jeff Conklin:

February 3, 1979

Avatar 1:44am northguineahills:

Ok, gotta boing away to slumberville, thanks Jeff!
Avatar 1:44am Jeff Conklin:

  1:46am Eric Fladen:

the show I had in mind was August 77
Avatar 1:48am Jeff Conklin:

The show youre thinking of was September 77, my folks (and a whole lot of others) were there...
Avatar 1:49am Jeff Conklin:

  1:55am Eric Fladen:

you are so correct!
  1:59am rw:

Checking back in to check out for the evening. Thanks once again Mr. Conklin! Take care all.
  3:00am Sarri Greece:

Thanks for the song
It s the right song for a beautiful morning
Avatar 3:23am gregorianpants:

Totally spaced on the show tonight. The missus was vomiting up blood again so I had to run out and get some essential oils.
  11:01pm Matteezmoe:

Just caught up, I freakin LOVE each and every broadcast I've heard over the last few months (noob here), thank you Jeff for sprinkling those tasty musical vibes and turning heads on to amazing new yams on a steady basis! Mad respect.
  10:28am jeremyo:

hey Jeff, just catching up with the show. Having listened to both Trees LPs yesterday, and remembering how good they are, it's a pleasure to have my ears filled with "Nothing Special" one more time. The rest of the show looks very promising too!
