Episode 56: Guest Pick - Phish 11.9.98

This week we are joined by the great The Vic, who brought us back to a great show from the impressive Chicago run from 1998. We're going to play and discuss the last show of that run, 11.9.98. Below are pics from both Vic and Brad's setlists from this show. 

Phish has played some great shows at UIC Pavilion, including the "Elements" set from 2011 and the wonderful 6.18.94 show. This will be a 2-part podcast, with Set 1 this week, with Set 2 next week. Here's an mp3 of Set 1, if you'd rather download it directly.

Episode 55: Phish 5.28.89 - Ian's House

This week we are joined by our friend and guest host Jonathan, who brought us back to a wonderful show from 1989, from "Ian's House" (or "Ian's Party" at someone else's house). Either way, Ian was awesome.

This show is historic, fun, and filled with really excellent playing. Trey's tone and precision in playing is just crisp, clear and on point, and as Jonathan pointed out, this is among the finest banter you'll ever hear in a Phish show. Very entertaining listen. But even more than entertaining, it's a reminder of how musically mature Phish was even by 1989—26 years ago. A great sounding show, taboot (taboot). This will be a 2-part podcast, with Set 1 this week, Set 2 and Set 3 next week.

Here's Charlie Dirksen's review of the YEM.

We mentioned Matt Burnham's Phish Hall of Fame voting project, check it out!
