Product Description

Full length CD very good condition

Amazon.com

The Grateful Dead analogies may apply to legions of Phish-head devotees, but musically this double-live set reveals a band with the fluency of early Allman Brothers minus their focus and muscularity. A neat blend of hippie whimsy ("Gumbo") and extended jams ("Stash," "You Enjoy Myself") that aren't as tedious as you'd guess. --Jeff Bateman

Biography

When the four members of Phish talk about getting back together after spending almost five years apart, the same words keep coming up—“gratitude,” “appreciation,” “inspiring.” There’s an almost tangible sense of relief that surrounds this reunion of one of the most popular touring bands in history, and that same feeling of fulfillment comes ...

When you talk to Phish fans, one of the first things they will tell you is how studio releases are nothing compared to the live scene. 100 % true. This album is the quinessential official release however. Even live releases, Slip Stitch and Pass and Hampton Comes Alive dont compare musically to this album. Some people will say this doesnt even compare to a bootleg of a whole show and thats where I differ. Some live shows are going to have songs that are just "time fillers" and don't feature that great of songs or playing. This album, however, combines the best performances of different songs from 1994 and while the Tweezer might be too long and feature some pointless noodling, all the songs are a work of art.
Bouncing Around The Room: Most fans dislike this song, or atleast say they do. But, I like it alot and while after hearing it a few times it does get old, it is a great song and its fun to listen to every once in a while.
STASH: Yikes! This song is great. The whispered lyrics, the crowd clapping, and the jam are awesome. Definitely one of the better Stashs you will hear.
GUMBO: This rare song was perfect for this album. The mellow jazz in this song is intoxicating. The a capella section is very nice and the chorus is catchy and fun, but not too catchy, which is a good thing.
MONTANA: This is a portion of a Tweezer from Montana. It is only 2 minutes long and is a nice little dark groove. Sounds like 4 guys just sitting in a room practicing.
YOU ENJOY MYSELF: This is without a doubt the quinessential Phish song. It takes a while to figure it out. The first time I heard it, I didnt pay much attention, but this is just musical mastery.

If you are fan of Phish, and want to get a CD of them live without going into Bootlegs, there are three choices. First, there is Slip, Stitch and Pass. This a great live album, but not the best. There is Hampton Comes Alive, which is a six CD box set containing two full live shows. It is really great, but it may be too long and expensive for a casual fan or for someone starting out. In my opinion, A Live One, is the best one available. It is 12 great songs on two CDs for a good price. It has Phish's long, intricate jams, like You Enjoy Myself and the 30 minute Tweezer. It also contains their more simple and shorter songs, such as Bouncing Around The Room. In my opinion, the best songs on this album are Bouncing Around The Room, which is the best version of the song I've heard, Chalkdust Torture, Wilson, Tweezer, and Simple. All the songs are great. This is also a great starting place for Phish.

Ladies and gentlemen, this album is nothing short of fantastic. Many people say that this album pales in comparison to bootlegs...and I, to an extent, agree. However, it is not a bootleg, it is a live album, and should therefore be compared to all the other live albums on the market. From that mindset, one quickly realizes how brilliant "A Live One" is.
Bouncing Around the Room- A lot of people hate this song. I, personally, think it kicks. Cool guitar line at the end, and some neat layered vocals.
Stash- Ah, the utter brilliance that is Phish is clearly illustrated in this song. A great song with a great jam. This one's all about tension and resolution.
Gumbo- A short, snappy number with a catchy chorus. Nice guitar solo at the end, and cool a cappella breakdown.
Montana- Fair. A brief psychedelic groove that provides a nice transition into
You Enjoy Myself- Brilliant. The playing is first-class, and it has a great Bobby McFerren-esk vocal jam.
Chalkdust Torture- A straight out rock tune with a kicking-yet-musically-intersting solo.
Slave to the Traffic Light- A nice cool-down after Chalkdust. A relaxed reggae tune with cool lyrics.
Wilson- An OK song, but a bit overrated. It has an interesting breakdown in the instrumental section. I personally prefer Chalkdust for a straight rocker.
Tweezer- Ah yes, the source of all the controversy. A great, joyous, and highly weird song with a great, joyous, and highly weird jam. A fun listen, but you have to be in the right mood.
Simple- Sheer joy in it's purest and most undilluted form. A great song, highly underrated.
Harry Hood- A neat song with a beautiful jam. You have to hear this one all the way to the end.
Squirming Coil- The actual song isn't so hot, IMO. However, Page's solo is beautiful.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this album is wonderful. Do yourself a favor and get it!
Peace, N.

There was a posting that claimed that "A Live One" isn't a good Phish "example" to draw new fans, especially those accustomed to listening to most of the drivel that passes for music on radio and MTV. I couldn't disagree more. While I don't personally like every song on this album, a every single one showcases Phish's musical ability. I have never seen/heard a band (the Dead included, and I am a Dead fan) that could match them when it comes to creativity and new ideas, (whether they throw a brass band in to mix it up or even a fu%^ing vacuum!) In the past few years I've traveled throughout Latin America, Europe, and most recently Australia and New Zealand. "A Live One" is one of the cd's I've always carried, and everyone who heard it for the first time was impressed to say the least. (I had countless offers to buy it from me, especially down under.) A lot of people knock this album because it's not a bootleg, like that automatically takes away from its "coolness." That's ridiculous. "A Live One" is a great gateway to Phish.
