We're on the verge of Phish's last shows of the summer as the band is set to kick off a
three-night stand at Dick's Sporting Goods Park outside of Denver on Friday night. The
last two Labor Day weekend runs at Dick's have both been sensational, with last year's
three-night stand setting the tone for what's been a fantastic year of Phish.

While Phish has played 164 songs so far in 2013, there are a number of originals that have
remained on the shelf throughout the year. For today's JB List we look at ten in
particular that we'd love to see make their 2013 debut this weekend in Colorado. Take a
look and be sure to leave your own suggestion as a comment below the article.
1. Fee: Last Time Played - 07/01/2012
There was a long period of time when "Fee" was in heavy rotation, yet versions of the tune
have been few and far between since Phish returned from a hiatus and then a breakup. The
last performance of "Fee" took place in Alpine Valley on July 1, 2012 and featured an
otherworldly "harmonics jam." It's now been 45 shows since Phish played "Fee" and we'd
love to see it at Dick's.
2. The Horse: Last Time Played - 12/31/2012
One interesting surprise in this year's sets has been Phish performing "Silent In The
Morning" without its traditional "The Horse" introduction. The two songs have been paired
since their debut on March 7, 1992 except on rare occasions. "Silent" has been played four
times this summer and each time "The Horse" was nowhere to be found. Is it gone for good?
