Phish’s Party Time, Space Antelope’s "Biological Mutiny"

A look at the Joy Box’s nifty packaging

With Phish’s Joy Box poised to make the rounds, we wanted to offer details on the tracks that appear on the Party Time bonus CD. The 13 songs on the disc, range in chronological origin from March, 1998 (“In A Misty Glade” and “Shrine”) on through this past June (a live version of “Alaska” from 6/9/09). In addition to songs that emerged from the Joy sessions, a number of these recordings took place at the bands members’ own studios.

Meanwhile, folks interested in looking back at the pre-history of Phish should check out Dean Budnick’s editor’s notes this month. While putting together the Festival 8 Express he dug into his own archives and found some flyers and photos from the band’s early days, as well as an article written by Trey Anastasio, while at Taft, entitled “Space Antelope: Biological Mutiny.”
