Brand New 7-CD box set, showcasing three complete shows, recorded Live November 21 & 22, 1997 Hampton Coliseum, Hampton, VA and November 23, 1997 Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, NC, in the midst of Phish's legendary 1997 Fall Tour. Hampton/Winston-Salem ‘97 contains all the music played over these three shows for a total of 45 songs (8 hours of music from Paul Languedoc's stereo soundboard mix, re-mastered by Fred Kevorkian). The Box includes never-before-heard material from soundchecks at both venues.
The 1997 Hampton Coliseum shows were the band's first two-night stand at Hampton Coliseum – a venue they have played a total of fifteen times including a two-night stand in 1998 (released as Hampton Comes Alive) and a trio of reunion shows in 2009. The shape and feel of the venue have earned it the nickname "The Mothership" among fans. The next show after Hampton 1997 took place at Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina - another familiar venue where Phish also performed in 1994, 1995 and 1998.

These three shows were a memorable triad for the band and fans. They are among the most requested shows for release from the Phish Archives and make up a compelling slice of the twenty-two-show tour that stretched from Las Vegas to Albany. The Hampton/Winston-Salem 97 shows were packed with notable renditions of classics including "Split Open And Melt", "AC/DC Bag", "Slave To The Traffic Light", "Mike's Song", "Halley's Comet", "Tweezer", "Run Like An Antelope", "Stash" and "Bathtub Gin". The band also showcased a wide variety of newer covers from the debut of the Rolling Stones' "Emotional Rescue" to Del McCoury's "Beauty Of My Dreams", Jimi Hendrix's "Izabella", Clifton Chenier's "My Soul" and even an impromptu take on War's "Low Rider" (sandwiched inside a blazing "Down With Disease"). The Hampton/Winston-Salem ‘97 shows also showcased newer originals like "Dogs Stole Things", "Ghost", "Piper" and the brand-new-for-fall instrumental "Black-Eyed Katy", which is the only song repeated on the release.

  • "Ventura" 6-CD Box Set
    Item #: PH165COMBO
    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.

  • 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.

  • "Niagara Falls" 3-CD Set
    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.

  • TAB at the Tab CD
    Item #: T5CD24
    Please note, this is not the signed version that was available with the pre-order. TAB at the Tab, recorded live on February 27, 2010 by Trey Anastasio Band at the legendary Tabernacle in Atlanta, captures the band at the peak of its powers and includes live renditions of classic TAB songs and numerous new compositions. Building on 2009's stripped-down four-piece lineup lead guitarist/vocalist Anastasio, Russ Lawton (drums), Tony Markellis (bass) and Ray Paczkowski (keyboards) TAB added horns back into the mix for its most recent foray. Longtime TAB members Russell Remington (tenor saxophone and flute) and Jennifer Hartswick (trumpet and vocals) were joined by newcomer Natalie Cressman (trombone and vocals), just 18 and on her first national tour. The instrumentation, vocals and arrangements prove a formidable combination, from the scintillating opener 'Money, Love and Change' to the tender 'Words to Wanda' (marking the song's first appearance on record). TAB at the Tab also marks the recorded debuts of fan favorite 'Windora Bug,' and Led Zeppelin's 'Black Dog.' Click on the product image for a complete track listing
