Date Song City Timing Notes
1990-09-13 Stash New York, NY 8:53 Debut is straightforward but well-received by the audience.
1991-03-08 Stash Tuscaloosa, AL 9:15 First version that really stretches beyone standard "Stash." Somewhat dissonant, with interesting Trey soloing.
1991-12-31 Stash Worcester, MA 8:37 Another great early version that stretches the "Type I" boundary and is well-played and loaded with tension.
1992-03-06 Stash Portsmouth, NH 8:24 "Stash" starts to get interesting in 1992. First version of the year is a good one, with lots of tension and the beginnings of pushing the jam beyond convention.
1992-03-31 Stash Columbia, MO 10:22 Unusually long version for this time period. Although largely straightforward, the jam features some great stacatto plucking by Trey and great tension building.
1992-04-19 Stash Santa Cruz, CA 8:35 Great version where the notion of the standard "Stash" jam is tested repeatedly. Trey moves horozontally in his melody rather than vertically several times which adds good tension.
1992-04-24 Stash Portland, OR 10:24 The first seriously exploratory version with rhythmic gyrations, unusual melody from Trey, and experimental playing.
1992-04-30 Stash Madison, WI 8:50 A very good version with brief departures beyond standard "Stash," and lots of tension and dissonance.
1992-07-09 Stash Portland, ME 9:23 Pounding percussion from Fish, screaming guitar from Trey, and loads of dissonance make for an excellent version.
1992-07-15 Stash Charlottesville, VA 9:42 Excellent straightforward "Stash" with great playing by Trey.
1992-07-25 Stash Stowe, VT 9:22 Mike and Page are awesome! Actually, Trey and Fish are pretty awesome too. A rock solid version.
1992-10-30 Stash Boston, MA 9:53 Excellent and unusual version. A great quiet section and good improvisational playing.
1992-11-20 Stash Albany, NY 11:25 The first "Stash" with an extended section that breaks away from the song proper. While similar to 10/30/92, this one is more developed and spellbinding, and includes "Linus And Lucy" teasing. Returns to high tension, standard "Stash" to conclude.
1992-11-28 Stash Port Chester, NY 10:16 Great, inspired version which gets out there and has very good Fish/Trey teaming.
1992-12-06 Stash Chicago, IL 11:50 Although mostly "Type I," this one has a great quiet early section to the jam, cool strumming by Trey, and some rhythmic shifting near the end.
1992-12-08 Stash Madison, WI 9:56 Trey is like a demon possessed here. Doesn't matter that's it's inside the box, it's a great version.
1993-02-04 Stash Providence, RI 11:32 Very cool and experimental beginning to the jam. Some good thrashing around elsewhere. First time with Page on the acoustic piano, which sounds great!
1993-02-09 Stash Rochester, NY 10:20 By far the most exploratory and different jam through this date. Very innovative and very excellent. Unfinished.
1993-02-21 Stash Atlanta, GA 10:38 "Stash" -> "Manteca" -> "Stash" at the close of the jam. The jam itself is also very good, with nice improvisational action throughout, an unusual ending, and a -> to "Lizards."
1993-02-21 Stash Atlanta, GA 0:55 -> in from "Manteca" to complete this strong version of "Stash," which ends in an unusual manner and -> to "The Lizards."
1993-02-23 Stash Orlando, FL 9:47 Unusual, exploratory ending section (beginning at 8:00) with rhythmic variation and a different vibe. -> to "Lizards."
1993-02-27 Stash Gainesville, FL 11:31 Breaks away from the standard jam at 8:20 into a quiet but tension filled section. Returns home to wrap up.
1993-03-14 Stash Gunnison, CO 10:10 Departs "Stash" entirely at 6:55 into an intense, high power jam that eventually (about 9:30) gets back to "Stash."
1993-03-25 Stash Santa Cruz, CA 10:51 The jam leaves the standard behind, comes back, leaves again on a different tangent, and finally returns to wrap up.
1993-03-30 Stash Eugene, OR 14:21 Spectacularly improvisational and MUST-HEAR . Takes "Stash" WELL beyond anything performed up to this date. Starts exploring right off the bat with an un-"Stash"-like groove, a brief "CYHMK" jam, and a power finish.
1993-04-01 Stash Portland, OR 10:38 Moves beyond "Stash" at about 7:00 for a good 2 minutes of exploration before returning.
1993-04-03 Stash Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 12:34 Fantastic improvisation in a very cool and very different jam than most. Mike and Fish are awesome keeping pace with Trey, who excels. Dissonant and blistering ending.
1993-04-05 Stash Seattle, WA 13:38 Excellent, very exploratory version that includes some "DEG"-like jamming. Well beyond "Stash" proper.
1993-04-09 Stash Minneapolis, MN 10:50 Several minutes of growly, percussive, dissonant, and atypical jamming.
1993-04-12 Stash Iowa City, IA 10:50 Brain-splitting tension and dissonance on display here. The ending release is welcome relief!
1993-04-14 Stash St. Louis, MO 10:48 "Stash" -> "Kung" -> "Stash." The jam is typically great Spring '93 stuff with exploration beyond the norm. Returns, seemingly to conclude, then heads out again for more exploration, winding up in the Land of "Kung."
1993-04-14 Stash St. Louis, MO 1:13 -> in from "Kung" to conclude this excellent version of "Stash."
1993-04-17 Stash Ann Arbor, MI 11:53 Trey hits on a cool little riff which he incorporates into much of this very good, unusually less dissonant jam.
1993-04-22 Stash Cleveland, OH 12:23 Some versions of "Stash" peak and seem like they're concluding, then head out on another exploratory jam. This gripping and probing version is an excellent example.
1993-05-05 Stash Albany, NY 11:57 Breaks into a punchy, rhythmic groove, returns home, heads out again for more improvisational play, then builds into a powerful ending.
1993-05-08 Stash Durham, NH 12:32 "Stash" -> "Kung" -> "Stash." Intense, high voltage jam in "Stash." Great segues.
1993-05-08 Stash Durham, NH 1:01 -> in from "Kung" to conclude this excellent version.
1993-07-15 Stash Weedsport, NY 11:00 The usual great fare for this period, but then at about 8:45, there is an upbeat departure and "Little Drummer Boy" jam.
1993-07-22 Stash Stowe, VT 11:14 Great repetitive and thematic jamming which cranks the tension up several notches.
1993-07-24 Stash Mansfield, MA 10:29 This is a sick, sick puppy. All kinds of improvisation combined with a generally mean-spirited sentiment.
1993-08-03 Stash Miami, FL 10:37 Being that it's August '93, you can expect some quality improvisation. This one has some twisted meanderings and a deranged little section near the end.
1993-08-07 Stash Darien Center, NY 12:24 Breaks into an unusually upbeat groove that gradually grows dissonant. Makes a brief return to "Stash" proper before settling, unfinished, with a -> to "Makisupa."
1993-08-11 Stash Grand Rapids, MI 11:31 Insane, tension-filled, extremely improvisational "Stash." This is a vicious animal. Totally awesome!
1993-08-13 Stash Indianapolis, IN 11:08 Very exploratory, but also remarkably musical. Lots of tension, but without so much chaos and dissonance.
1993-08-15 Stash Louisville, KY 17:56 Almost unquestionably the finest, most improvisational and thrilling stand-alone version of "Stash" ever performed (11/14/95 taking the song combination honor). SBD from FTA - IT - Part 2. Download this, NOW!
1993-08-21 Stash Salt Lake City, UT 14:58 Extremely improvisational, with multiple movements. Perhaps lacking the melodic grandeur of 8/15/93, it is nonetheless stunning, fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants exploration.
1993-08-25 Stash Seattle, WA 14:48 Yet another wildly exploratory August '93 "Stash." This one gets far from home, but doesn't quite gel cohesively.
1993-08-28 Stash Berkeley, CA 13:32 Another killer, improvisational, and multiple movement version from the strongest month of arguably, the peak year for "Stash."
1994-04-06 Stash Toronto, Ontario, Canada 12:39 "Stash" starts off '94 in a jarring, intense manner, seems to peak, then breaks into a 2nd, really excellent improvisational section.
1994-04-09 Stash Binghamton, NY 10:23 Gnarly and heavy-duty power rocking jam. Not for the meek.
1994-04-13 Stash New York, NY 11:07 Mike is noticeably strong in this dark and evil monster. Finishes with a "CYHMK" tease.
1994-04-16 Stash Amherst, MA 12:45 Jam breaks into an upbeat, melodic but intense groove. Then, nasty old "Stash" makes a roaring comeback.
1994-04-20 Stash Lexington, VA 11:34 The great thing about "Stash" from '93 - '94 is how fluidly the band weaves back on forth between familiar ground and exploratory territory. This intense and gripping version shifts back and forth several times.
1994-04-23 Stash Atlanta, GA 11:47 Similar to 4/20/94, except that the jam gets further away from the norm as it develops, becoming more malicious.
1994-04-30 Stash Orlando, FL 11:00 Every version of "Stash" from April '94 is on this chart and with good reason. This one mutates and thrashes nicely.
1994-05-03 Stash Antioch, TN 9:52 Enchanting little version that shifts back and forth from minor to major mode several times, then explores.
1994-05-06 Stash Houston, TX 12:23 An excellent exploratory version. It's too bad that the recently discovered recording for this show is not of the same quality as this fine "Stash."
1994-05-08 Stash Bee Cave, TX 11:21 A strong, mostly straightforward jam is followed by a rocking and upbeat groove and a blistering return to "Stash."
1994-05-13 Stash Tempe, AZ 11:35 High power, intense and pounding jam that is mostly straightforward at first. But then, just when it seems to be finishing, the jam swerves abruptly, becoming a sick, growling and angry monster.
1994-05-16 Stash Los Angeles, CA 10:52 A couple of exploratory movements. The second has some beautiful space similar to several Fall '94 "Tweezers."
1994-05-19 Stash Eugene, OR 11:30 High power jam that at moments borders on heavy metal rocking. A very intense version with a screaming end.
1994-06-11 Stash Morrison, CO 9:35 "As spirited, kinetic, and vigorous as Stash gets. Incendiary peaks by Trey, anchored by booming, seismic Mike/Fish rhythms akin to those in 12.2.95 Tweezer." Thanks @FunkyCFunkyDo!
1994-06-16 Stash Minneapolis, MN 11:21 A belligerent, aggressive, volatile, and bad-ass jam. If you like the really sick versions of "Stash," you're in for a treat.
1994-06-19 Stash Kalamazoo, MI 11:51 The jam gets out there well beyond "Stash." The tension is cranked up repeatedly with great pounding by Fish.
1994-06-22 Stash Columbus, OH 10:51 Although this version mostly stays inbounds, the boys play the tension card to full-effect, and the ending is unusual.
1994-07-01 Stash Philadelphia, PA 12:28 Two exploratory jam sections here. The second, beginning at about 10:35, is a great little "cool down" section.
1994-07-05 Stash Ottawa, Ontario, Canada 12:12 Especially after 8:00, this one falls into the "extreme" category, with dissonance and chaos run amuck.
1994-07-08 Stash Mansfield, MA 12:16 A Live One version. Jam doesn't get too far out there, but there is a repetitious section beginning at 7:00 that ratchets up the tension considerably. The ending section is drawn out, furthering this effect.
1994-07-10 Stash Saratoga Springs, NY 12:42 Multifaceted improvisational version, including a quieter section, a thrilling rebuilding of energy and dissonance, a second settled section, and a pulsing push back up over the top.
1994-07-16 Stash North Fayston, VT 10:13 Fishman and Page star in this chaotic, noisy version. It's essentially straightforward, but a pounding jam nonetheless.
1994-10-18 Stash Nashville, TN 10:47 Excellent version with a nice movement beyond "Stash" including moments of that Fall '94 spacious sound.
1994-11-02 Stash Bangor, ME 11:39 An unexpected and largely upbeat groove emerges from the typically chaotic jam for this time period.
1994-11-12 Stash Kent, OH 14:00 Another typically strong Fall '94 version with improvisational play and a wacky ending section with a vocal jam.
1994-11-16 Stash Ann Arbor, MI 14:54 Incredible journey of exploration well beyond the standard. The second section, at about 8:30, includes quite of bit of "DEG"-like jamming, followed by some quiet moments and a killer return to "Stash."
1994-11-20 Stash Madison, WI 11:56 An absolute thriller, moderately exploratory, but intense with great tension building throughout.
1994-12-06 Stash Goleta, CA 10:59 Aggressive, all-over-the-map improvisation.
1994-12-10 Stash Santa Monica, CA 10:48 A riveting and exploratory jam that gets more and more out there as it progresses.
1995-06-15 Stash Atlanta, GA 13:29 Psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat as the tension ratchets up. Unfinished with a -> to "IDK."
1995-06-17 Stash Bristow, VA 16:39 Great version that gets well beyond "Stash" into some serious dark exploration. Classic Summer '95 jamming. And a powerful ending to top it off.
1995-06-24 Stash Philadelphia, PA 14:49 Another very good Summer '95 version, loaded with tension and with a psychological edginess to it.
1995-07-01 Stash Mansfield, MA 18:36 Dissonant and extremely tension filled jam. Seems to be concluding, but then at about 14:10, the jam morphs into a gnarly, experimental jazz-like foray. Unfinished with a > "Stange Design."
1995-10-14 Stash Austin, TX 18:10 Some cool quiet playing early on, then the jam veers away from the norm into some deep exploration. A different animal than the creatures from '93 - '94. No big peak, instead the jam dissipates with a -> to "Catapult."
1995-11-14 Stash Orlando, FL 15:32 "Stash" -> "Manteca" -> "Stash" -> "Dog Faced Boy" -> "Stash". Many would rank this combination among the Top 10 Phish jams ever, and with good reason. This magnum opus is a stunning, thrilling masterpiece.
1995-11-14 Stash Orlando, FL 12:27 -> in from "Manteca." This epic "Stash" continues. This section includes some cool grooving on "Esther" before growing intense and incendiary, and then settling down and -> to "Dog Faced Boy."
1995-11-14 Stash Orlando, FL 6:05 -> in from "Dog Faced Boy." A blistering cacophony follows "DFB," before this monumental "Stash" arrives home on familiar, but unsettling ground. This entire "Stash" sequence is absolutely MUST-HEAR for any serious fan.
1995-12-04 Stash Amherst, MA 12:28 Although largely "Type I," this typically strong '95 version is an intense thriller, and has excellent dynamics modulation.
1995-12-17 Stash Lake Placid, NY 11:40 One of the most spirited, cacophanous versions from '95, even though it's straightforward. Fish and Page go ballistic.
1995-12-29 Stash Worcester, MA 17:58 Very improvisational considering this version largely stays in bounds. Like many versions from '95, the band stretches the duration, creating a psychological thriller, but the music is less exploratory than '93 - '94. Not a good trend for "Stash."
1996-08-07 Stash Morrison, CO 12:42 Jam shifts to major mode at about 8:08, continuing until about 9:30, for some upbeat jamming.
1997-06-19 Stash Vienna, Austria 21:34 Straightforward until 11:30 when the sounds of funk start to creep in. Becomes a full-blown funk jam after 14:50. Unfinished with a -> to "Ghost."
1997-07-02 Stash Amsterdam, Netherlands 30:23 Unusual intro with delay effects. The jam breaks from standard at about 15:07 into a rocking groove which then morphs into a melodic, upbeat groove capped with a bass solo. Dissolves into dissonant space and -> to "Llama."
1997-07-06 Stash Desenzano, Italy 16:58 Another version where the jam has a funk section (9:40 - about 14:30) which is quite good and different.
1997-07-30 Stash Ventura, CA 15:06 Although largely straightforward, there is a nice shift to major mode at about 7:42, plus a very gradual build up to the peak.
1997-11-13 Stash Las Vegas, NV 21:32 Jam shifts into major mode at about 10:40, then teeters between sentiments in quiet contemplation. Around 17:00, the jam begins to work its way back to "Stash" proper.
1997-11-23 Stash Winston-Salem, NC 17:04 After a brief shift to major mode, the tension ratchets up noticeably. At 10:45, Mike and Fish break into a droning, repetitive groove which Trey and Page play over. This thunderous thrumming continues and -> to "NICU."
1997-11-30 Stash Worcester, MA 20:33 Has a magnificent, melodic jam in it beginning about 13:10. Pure unadulterated hose at one point. Unfinished with a -> to an excellent "Free."
1997-12-30 Stash New York, NY 12:59 Great version where Mike and Fish drive the jam into improvisational territory, including some "Manteca"-like jamming around 8:20, and the ending section dissolves in a quiet but tense manner.
1998-04-02 Stash Uniondale, NY 19:24 The jam almost immediately breaks into exploratory ground that is unusual for this period. Following an ending section without vocals, the jam at 13:10 breaks into a gorgeous ambient jam (first of '98) with "Frankie Says" quotes.
1998-06-30 Stash Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark 13:34 This is a cool and very different version. Combines great tension with a little ambient sound and some funk. -> "Cities."
1998-10-30 Stash Las Vegas, NV 7:16 Straightforward "Stash" begins Set II (rare Set II placement for "Stash") and has a superb -> to "Manteca," the first of 3 consecutive segues (->) in this set.
1999-09-09 Stash Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 14:12 Haunting and eerie version that is very unique. Trey and Page deploy effects to create a chilling, lunar soundscape.
1999-10-10 Stash Albany, NY 17:14 Some gorgeous major-key jamming in this one (from 9:00 - 11:15) and good staccato playing by Trey later in the jam.
2003-02-26 Stash Worcester, MA 18:26 Largely straightforward, but with a nice 2.0-style funk breakdown with staccato plucking by Trey from about 9:40 - 12:55.
2003-07-21 Stash Noblesville, IN 13:43 Not way out there, but has some good moments that stretch beyond normal "Stash" (8:45 - 11:45) and a solid finish.
2003-12-31 Stash Miami, FL 22:20 Excellent and very improvisational version that gets far, far removed from "Stash" before finally coming home. Multiple sections, including quiet rhythmic stuff, effects-laden space, and some great upbeat jamming.
2004-08-14 Stash Coventry, VT 20:42 While the composed section is far from spotless, the jam is very good and multi-dimensional, including a nice move to major mode followed by some great exploration. Unfinished with a > to "Free."
2009-07-30 Stash Morrison, CO 17:35 Extended major mode groove (9:53 - 14:53) establishes this good Red Rocks version as the first noteworthy 3.0 "Stash."
2010-10-31 Stash Atlantic City, NJ 13:28 Features an unusually melodic, major mode groove that builds beautifully before returning to the norm with great tension.
2012-08-22 Stash Kansas City, MO 13:42 A very good version that shifts back and forth between minor and major modes, creating tension between dark and bright.
2013-07-14 Stash Columbia, MD 13:42 Great, multi-section "Stash." Jam breaks to major mode (6:36) and returns. Then it grows funky and percussive (8:52), shifts again to major mode while staying funky (10:12), and then makes it way back to familiar territory.
2013-07-31 Stash Stateline, NV 10:16 A very good "old school" "Stash," with a dark tone and real tension throughout, plus some dissonance and rhythmic shifts.
2013-08-30 Stash Commerce City, CO 11:56 Some very cool and unusual percussion in the jam, which breaks into major mode, then returns with good intensity.
2013-10-31 Stash Atlantic City, NJ 10:05 Excellent short "Stash" with mounting tension. Like a '93 or '94 version!
2014-07-01 Stash Mansfield, MA 10:50 A really nice break to major mode with good Page/Trey interplay smoothly works back to typically tension-filled "Stash."
2015-08-12 Stash Philadelphia, PA 12:14 Traditional "Stash" jam which dwells in the domain of darkness throughout, covers some different terrain in this realm, and ups the tension nicely before releasing its underworld grip.
2015-08-16 Stash Columbia, MD 10:43 "Stash" is an old fashioned tension/dissonance -> release type song. Trey's frequent use of the off beat to begin his melodic runs keeps it interesting, nicely building tension up to the final release.
2015-08-23 Stash Watkins Glen, NY 12:21 Some good and varied playing, in addition to a warming modulation to major mode provide the differentiation that make this version well worth checking out.
2016-10-30 Stash Las Vegas, NV 11:24 Beginning with some great quieter playing, including some "Manteca"-like action, the jam warms for bit, then heads into the familiar tension and release head waters, with excellent Fish and solid Page/Trey interplay.
2018-08-11 Stash Columbia, MD 10:59 While not flawless, certainly one of the era's finest. Mike's salsa-riffing (around 7:00) seems to inspire Trey, whose minor-key jamming creates a "Spanish Jam" vibe, while, interestingly, evoking 4/26/96's "David Bowie" - particularly the version's "Caravan" jamming (around 9:20) - both of which assume similar melodic lines.
2019-06-11 Stash St. Louis, MO 16:04 At around 8:00, the jam shifts away from the typical into a pleasant major mode section. From there, a synth/keyobard-led section morphs into cool, groovy music with nice Page/Trey interplay. The energy builds becoming more rocking, until finally returning to "Stash" proper.
2019-07-10 Stash Uncasville, CT 12:49 The jam breaks into a really cool, "Caravan"-like (Duke Ellington) or "Spanish" minor mode jam section at about 8:00, which continues for several minutes and grows increasingly intense and includes a fleeting "Manteca" tease by Trey as well. This tension-filled playing winds its way back to "Stash" proper by 11:30, concluding a terrific version.
