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 ...

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone magazine famously called Phish "America's Greatest Jam Band," and while Trey Anastasio, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, and Page McConnell called it quits as a group last year, their legend lives on. Formed at University of Vermont in 1983, Phish quickly became heirs to the jam band tradition, taking the roots of musical improvisation to a new level and beyond. Of all their now-legendary shows, their 1995 New Year's Eve concert at Madison Square Garden-a masterful blend of composition, theater and improvision-is revered as one of their finest, even by the band themselves. Marking this stellar concert's 10th anniversary, Rhino's deluxe 3-CD release presents the Phenomenal Phish at the peak of their powers. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. January 4, 2006
By Chad
Format:Audio CD
Again, Phish has managed to amaze me.

I've had an audience copy of this show for 3 or 4 years, and I chose to never listen to it because I knew that they would officially release this at some point - and here it is. Gotta say, it was well worth the wait.

Short & Sweet -

Packaging (Who cares??)

They did a good job with the packaging. Nice insert booklet with lots of decent pics.

The essay was pretty comical...

Sound (5 Stars)

This release blows the LivePhish releases that I've heard out of the water as far as sound quality goes. There's nothing really more to say. They nailed it. I've been very happy with Rhino's re-mastering work as of late.

Performance (25,000 Stars)

I won't dive into the play-by-play in this review..I think that it's better left to one's own interpretation.

Simply put, this was Phish at their best. If you're new to the whole Phish thing and are unsure of what the hooplah surrounding these guys is all about, or if you were wondering what this band was actually capable of musically, then search no more.

Overall (5 Stars)

23 bucks well spent. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait... January 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For those that don't know, this show has long been a favorite of both the band and its fans. You'd be hard-pressed to find a Phish fan that wouldn't rate this show in their top five or ten. I've had audience recordings of it for years, but I had always wanted a nice, clear soundboard recording. With over 20 shows already officially released, the fact that this one hadn't been among them had always seemed like a glaring ommission, so I was really psyched to hear that they would finally release it for the 10th anniversary of the show.

Thankfully, the band was apparently waiting so they could give this show the release it deserves. It's very obvious that they spent a lot more time putting this one together than with any of the 'Live Phish' series. The 'LP' releases sound good, but this one has been given the full multitrack mix treatment and includes a nice booklet with an essay on the show and plenty of pictures.

The sound is comparable to A Live One (that is, fantastic), but that's not the reason this show is famous. The energy is through the roof the whole time, and there are all-time great versions of so many of the band's most beloved songs; the jams in Reba, Drowned, Runaway Jim, Mike's Song, Weekapaug Groove, and You Enjoy Myself are all among the best ever. Sure, there are arguably slightly better versions of many of these songs, but the sheer quality and consistency of the playing in this show is what puts it among the band's best. Virtually every jam is worthy of a mention on the all-time Phish highlight reel, and the non-jamming songs are extremely well played as well.

The only downside I can think of with this release is that they could have mixed the crowd mics a bit higher to better capture the audience reaction in some spots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Stellar Live Performance by Phish October 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If there has been a band that has had the most success of being an "underground" band, it would have to be Phish. Phish has long had the reputation of being a band with an "open audio taping" policy and as a result they built up a great following - especially as a live act. . In fairness to the quartet, this is a band that produces some of the most innovative music anywhere on the music scene. Phish's reputation both as a studio band and a live act really took off in the mid 1990s. Phish would release three live albums in the 1990s - 1994's "A Live One" ,1997's "Slip Stitch and Pass", and 1999's six CD collection, "Hampton Comes Alive". Excluding the "Live Phish" series that would begin to be released in 2001, Phish would not release another live album until after their breakup in 1994. In 2005, Phish would release "Live at Madison Square Garden - New Year's Eve 1995". This would be a three CD set that would feature this New Year's Eve concert in its entirety - and once again continue to legacy of Phish as one of the great live bands of all-time.

As mentioned, excluding the live Phish series, this is the fourth live set by Phish. 1994's "A Live One" was a good introduction to Phish and showcases Phish's jams in top form. "A Live One" was a double CD set with only 12 songs, but contained 131 minutes of music. "Slip Stitch and Pass" does a great job at showcasing the live improvisational skills of Phish while performing an an intimate setting. At the same time, the mid 1990s saw Phish emerge as one of the great cover bands in a live setting. Covering other artists' songs would be a natural extension of the improvisational skills of Phish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best of them March 7, 2006
By Riley
Format:Audio CD
I'm a casual fan of Phish - never got to see them live but love what I've heard. Live at MSG proves that there was a time when Phish could take the audience anyplace with their music - no limitations to their imaginations. Their musical chops are very much in evidence on this night. From everything that I've heard and been able to gather the time period between this cd and 1998 was the golden age for Phish. I'm glad we have such a nice sounding reminder of that time. Only wish I could have been there. For those of you who love jam bands you need to make this purchase right now. I own tons of live Dead, Allman Brothers, and Gov't Mule and I rank Live at MSG right up there with the best of them all.
