The ability to instruct a crowd using musical cues is another check in the win column for Phish. This episode puts you right at the early stages of that on a night in Portsmouth, NH. Signals abound the night after the first Secret Language Lesson. What really sets this night apart is how good both sets are overall. Get in on the secret with Episode 16.
Party time! A high-energy show from a defunct New York City club is pulled from the Cavern wall. Really tight playing is the trend with this one and John Popper joins in on a couple songs. Phish takes it past the 3AM hour in Tribeca with some Saturday Night Fever of their own.
In the middle of a short tour of European cities, this show is from a very small Northern Italian town. While tough to get to, Phish rewards the fans on tour right away by starting the show with a treat. Both sets have Jam Chart moments, tour hallmark passages, and the energy of a state-side band on stride across the pond.
A first-time performance from a now defunct venue populates Episode 10. A perfect July day leads to a fantastic Midwest melt with a great example of the elusive “flow” we all desire each time we show up. The third episode of All-Request January throws us deep into a few funky numbers in set one and rare treats woven into a thick second set. Underrated? Listen to what you have been missing from Summer ’98.
Few Phish concerts signal a change in the wings, but this is one of them. Starting a new year from their hometown, the band shows us practiced prowess and quite an number of new songs from an overlooked show to start a Spring Tour. A second set throw-down from the Giant Country Horns spells a treat for the continuation of Twenty8’s All-Request January on Fee’s Cavern.
Just before one of the best months in Phish history, July 1993 has a present for your ears. Check out this show from the shelves of the underrated.
This show has more than enough treats for under your tree. Let’s jump back to a show in July from the 80s!
A show from the top fifty? Yes, please! However, it was a lengthy climb to that position. Here is a concert that bears little in common with any other and has earned it’s accolades traveling the long road to the top.
Twenty8 is dusting off a show from a cold night on the north Atlantic. Stoke the fireplace and check out a lesser heralded show that features shades of the Everglades in both sets.
We step back in time to feature a show from one of college basketball’s most revered venues. Hoisting banners and pressing full-court! Here is another trip inside Fee’s Cavern.
