Phish to Release Fall ’97 Shows

The next archival Phish release will look back on the band’s cow funk-heavy fall ’97 run. According to the latest leak discovered by internet Phish sleuths, Hampton/Winston-Salem ’97 will capture Phish’s November 21 and 22 shows at Hampton, VA’s Hampton Coliseum as well as the Vermont Quartet’s November 23 stop at Winston-Salem, NC’s Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. All three shows will be released in their entirety.

The multi-disc set will also feature rare soundcheck material from both venues. A note on the release says, “The Hampton/Winston-Salem 97(11/21-23)shows featured Phish at an peak of execution and flow. Throughout the shows, Phish seized most every opportunity to lift and expand. Paul Languedoc’s stereo mix, mastered by Fred Kevorkian, funnels the energy of these special shows nearly 15 years later. Hampton/Winston-Salem 97 contains all the music played over these 3 shows for a total of 45 songs – over 8 hours of music – including never-before-heard material from soundchecks at both venues. The 7-CD box set, a must-own collection for any Phish fan.” Hampton/Winston-Salem ’97 will be available on December 6, 2011 via JEMP records.
