We are back to Europe 1997 and a rare one set free Phish show! This show is about as unknown as it gets from this time period and we get a great soundcheck from it. “Funky Bitch” is a type I 14 minute Funk throwdown that you won’t want to miss. The soundcheck closes with a great version of “Ginseng Sullivan”. The bonus track is “Twist” that has a full “Groove Is is in the Heart” jam that crushes. Show Page

The Daily Soundcheck Episode #52-03/01/1997 Markthalle, Hamburg, Germany (“Attack on the Bass”)

When I started The Daily Soundcheck I was excited to bring some of the great soundchecks to the masses. This baby is certainly one of them. Mike plays his Quantum Modulus 5 string for the first time in this show (featured on “Slip, Stich, and Pass”) and it leads to the soundcheck “Attack on the Bass”. This 7 min free form jam is ass kicking and hilarious. It is everything Phish. Included is the legendary “Wolfman’s Brother” which goes deep for the first time. Show Page

The last soundcheck from 1996 is from the famous Vegas 96 show. We are treated to “Dog Log” but it is really the “Dog Log” lyrics over top of the music of “Funky Bitch”. It creates a cool mashup. Included is a great exploratory “Simple” that takes place in the middle of a great “Mike’s Groove”. Show Page
