All new 6-CD box set featuring two complete live shows, recorded July 30, 1997 and July 20, 1998 at Ventura County Fairgrounds in Ventura, California, a general admission dirt racetrack between the Pacific Coast Highway and Surfers Point Park. Bits of the each show's Soundchecks are included at the end of both shows.

The new box set was fully remixed from the band's multitrack masters and mastered for release. July 30, 1997 was Phish's first Ventura stop since Trey learned to surf nearby in 1993. The show featured a number of must-hear performances including a bass-driven, syncopated "Wolfman's Brother" > "Chalk Dust Torture", a deep and spacey "Stash" and "Character Zero" in Set I. A "Free" > "David Bowie" > "Cities" > "David Bowie" combination dominated the show's second half with some of the summer's biggest jams.

On July 20, 1998 Phish again encountered Ventura's breezy oceanside. Ventura '98 was characterized by some new songs and some bustouts. The first set included a "Bathtub Gin" opener, a new arrangement of "Water In The Sky", the swinging funk of "The Moma Dance" and a "Split Open And Melt" Set I closer. Set II exploded with a bass-and-drums-fueled "Drowned" > "Makisupa Policeman" pairing that utilized Page's synth stylings to seamlessly blend rock and reggae. "Maze" led to a perfectly placed "Sea And Sand".

Everyone who orders "Ventura" from Phish Dry Goods will receive "Buenaventura", a bonus CD featuring ten tracks handpicked from Phish's March 21, 1993 Ventura Theatre show, while supplies last.

    Item #: PH181COMBO
    Everyone who orders from Phish Dry Goods will receive a Limited Edition David Welker Niagara Falls screenprinted postcard, created exclusively for this release. Measures 4.25"x6". (while supplies last) All new 3-CD set recorded live December 7, 1995 at Niagara Falls Convention Center in Niagara Falls, NY. December 1995 was a universally recognized high point for Phish. The band found themselves at Niagara Falls - straddling the border between the United States and Canada beside the fastest flowing, highest, most powerful waterfall in North America. "Niagara Falls" balanced Phish's bluegrass and barbershop quartet talents with a healthy dose of expansive improvisation, for which this era of Phish is renowned. The show featured standout playing throughout both sets to mirror the breadth and power of the setting near the Falls. Set I highlights included a hot combination of The Curtain > AC/DC Bag > Demand > Rift, a blazing first set Slave To The Traffic Light and a huge Possum. Among Set II highpoints were a legendary over-the-falls freakout of a Split Open And Melt opener, a fast and furious Reba with a soaring jam and an unusual ending that led to a deep swinging Julius. The set ended with a bone-crushing Mike's Song > Weekapaug Groove – one of just three times this combination was played without a third (or more) middle song(s). "Niagara Falls" was recorded by Paul Languedoc to 2-track DAT and mastered by Fred Kevorkian. Poor Heart (the slow version) from the soundcheck is included on the third disc. All CD sets come with a free set of MP3s of the entire show, as well as a unique code to access exclusive video content from this show.

  • Chicago '94 6-CD Box Set
    Item #: PHCD157
    Brand new 6-CD box set, showcasing two complete shows recorded live on June 18, 1994 and November 25, 1994 at UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL. By 1994, Phish was well established as an international touring act and already well known to a growing group of hardcore fans. Amidst a tour packed with highlights - it was this summer that convinced the band to start multi-tracking their live shows - this show was recorded for posterity on 2-track DAT. Paul Languedoc's stereo soundboard mixes re-mastered by Fred Kevorkian carry the intensity and intricacy of these special shows to listeners' ears eighteen years later. Chicago '94 contains nearly six hours of music performed at both shows for a total of 43 songs, including material from the UIC soundchecks. The shows are presented in a 6-CD box set with new artwork by longtime collaborator and Chicagoan Jim Pollock. For a complete tracklisting of Chicago '94, click the More Info tab.

  • "Star Lake 98" DVD (2-DVDs)
    Item #: PHAM260
    All new 2-DVD set, recorded live on August 11, 1998 at Star Lake Amphitheatre in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania. The Star Lake 98 show was the 20th of summer to display the loose, experimental vibe of a tour that began in Europe and jumped to the United States enroute to the summer’s ending Lemonwheel festival. "Star Lake 98" is the only full video show available in the Archives from Phish's Summer 1998 tour. The 2-DVD set was created from archival VHS videotapes of the 3-camera lawn screen feed. The audio was mixed from multi-track masters in stereo PCM and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround (aspect Ratio 4:3, regions 1-6 NTSC) and clocks in at just about 2 hours and 50 minutes. The introduction of a never-before-played cover each night earned the tour the nickname “the summer of covers” from fans and band alike and Star Lake’s contribution was "Trench Town Rock." Star Lake also saw the return of "Time Loves A Hero" which was played for the first time in a decade and segued out of a sultry "Wolfman’s Brother." An extended "Fee" extro and hot renditions of "Maze" and "Reba" set the stage for set II’s super-swinging, ethereal "Runaway Jim" and the unusual pairing of "Meat" > "Limb By Limb". Local flavor of the Commonwealth was provided by "Bittersweet Motel" (the title of the Phish documentary recorded during the Europe dates) and "Wilson," King of Prussia. Disc One: Trench Town Rock > Julius Wolfman's Brother > Time Loves a Hero Bittersweet Motel Reba The Sloth Ginseng Sullivan Fee Maze Sample in a Jar Disc Two: Runaway Jim Meat > Limb By Limb When the Circus Comes > Down with Disease Encore: Wilson > Golgi Apparatus
