Podcast #70: Phish Summer Bliss Mix
In celebration of Phish kicking off their summer tour this weekend, it’s time for another podcast.
Although I certainly love the band’s darker side, for me, I generally equate Phish and summer with the band’s blissful and happy improvisational style. With that in mind, I decided to mimic the same theme from my last podcast — the Bisco Bliss Mix — and splice together some of my favorite moments of “blissful” Phish improv.
Happy Summer Tour 2011. Enjoy!

For a little more detail, check out the tracklist and notes below…
Although this isn’t intended to be a new version of my live music workout mixes, it could still work pretty well for a long, mellow jog, with occasional bursts of energy at a few spots in the middle.
In terms of track selection, I tried to use tracks that I’ve never put on another mix….which is another way of explaining why I did not include some old favs like the 7/10/99 Chalkdust, the Big Cypress DWD or Split Open and Melt > Catapult. Those gems are all on other mixes, which you should, of course, check out.
