First Trey Anastasio / 70 Volt Parade Jam?


This isn’t exactly a ground-breaking find or anything, as the title may suggest, but I just noticed a long-ago-downloaded track from Trey Anastasio and 70 Volt Parade labeled as “Hendrix Jam, First 70 Volt Parade Jam.” I don’t know how accurate that is, but this jam rocks my socks off:

The mp3 is labeled as the following:

Trey Anastasio
“Hendrix Jam, First 70 Volt Parade Jam”
“2005-01-06 East Iris Studio Jams – Nashville, TN”
1 of 4
1 of 2
“Nashville Studio Jam (10:00)
(1/6/05 First 70 Volt Parade Studio Session, Nashville, TN)”

Can anyone tell me where I got this or if it’s labeled correctly? My best guess is that I downloaded it from the “Bands” section of, and it’s no longer hosted there. Oh well, rock on:

  1. Dad

    Wow, the computer I keep updating and fixing and getting new connections to, showed you a new song? Whatever dude
    I’m just glad it’s working. I’m listening to this jam, and I guess it’s cool. I do get bored with them pretty quickly though. This from a guy who’s first concert at 15, was the Dead. I still remember that chick next to me, but the jams start boring me to death. I just get tired of jams after about the 5minute mark. There’s nothing left to say at that point IMHO.

  2. I agree they can drag on from time to time, that’s why I love when band’s freshen up the setlist with covers and segues from one song to another. I can handle, for example, when Phish spends 30 minutes on a Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove because it gives me an expection of what’s to come, and in later shows when they switched up I Am Hydrogen with the song Simple, it then leads me to wonder which jam they’ll choose. Plus when you know a song so well like these that little subtle changes completely change the dynamic of the song for you, it makes it even more incredible, like reading a new interpretation of a classic story.

    An example would have been The Dead at Alpine Valley in 2004 that I went to. Since Jerry was missing they had a guy named Warren Haynes fill in, and some of the new interpretations of old GD classics were incredible. Casey Jones sticks out in my mind because they made it funky – a funky Grateful Dead that they’ve been playing since the 60’s… that’s insane! I guess all of that, and the fact that I simply love the buildup of energy of long songs when they’re executed well.

    Also you’ve got songs like “Run Like An Antelope” or “You Enjoy Myself” from Phish that are nearly 10 minutes purely in their studio form, and there’s so many different segments and builds and interactions between the segments and patterns hidden in those two songs alone for me to always discover something new.

    For an idea, go to and scroll down until the “Song Parts” section. Here they diagram the entire You Enjoy Myself from the album A Live One.
