COLORADO ’88 AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

COLORADO '88 AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

We’re delighted to announce http://stores.musictoday.com/store/dept.asp?band_id=840&dept_id=6711&sfid=7, a three-CD set of recordings compiled from Phish’s seminal tour of the Rocky Mountain State, available now for http://stores.musictoday.com/store/dept.asp?band_id=840&dept_id=6711&sfid=7, with a Halloween release date. Mastered from the original analog cassette tapes, Colorado ’88 contains recordings of songs that, until now, have not been widely traded or heard with such clarity. Several of the tracks found in the collection have never before appeared on an official Phish release.

Having conquered the New England college club circuit, Phish embarked on a storied adventure West. The band played seven shows in ten days to tiny crowds in small bars and restaurants in the ski towns of Telluride and Aspen. Colorado ’88 culls, in chronological order, the best of those shows, providing a vivid glimpse into the days before the three and four-night stands at amphitheatres and arenas that would distinguish Phish in the years to come.

The material on Colorado ’88 depicts the young band at one of the heights of their characteristic adventurousness. From extended forays into their Gamehendge mythology to classic and obscure covers, to cult gems, Colorado ’88 includes much of the hard-to-find early Phish that die-hards have sought after for years. The release gives fans the chance to share the experience of hearing the band in such an intimate setting.
