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!

  1. I like this place. I was here the other night, I've been there for about four or five hours and found the prices reasonable on all fronts and the staff to be so friendly. I would be the perfect person to have on an infomercial for party venues Houston TX if they ever had one.
