PHISH will release the next four volumes of their LIVE PHISH series on May 20. “Live Phish”, Volumes 17-20 will feature selections made by Mike Gordon, after reviewing 20 years of personal journals, most of them commentary about Phish shows.
Using his notes as a guide, he whittled down the list of 1,331 candidates — that’s (give or take) the number of Phish gigs between 10/30/83 and 10/7/2000 — to a manageable 50. he halved that list to 25 and then further excised it down to 10 before making a final selection of four “Mike’s Picks” two of the releases are two-disc sets. The other two are three disc sets, and as a bonus, they include significant extra ‘filler’ tracks from additional shows.
We’re still updating the Live Phish CDs web site http://www.cds.livephish.com with the new material — look for audio and video samples of the new shows by the end of the month. In the meantime, you can view full setlists and filler tracks on the Phish Dry Goods site at http://drygoods.phish.com/Dept.aspx?cp=773_1429_6903.
