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

Amazon.com

For those who eschew the swinging teenage elbows of an actual Phish concert, this 1997 Hamburg date offers a comprehensive account of the quartet's breadth. Talking Heads' "Cities" is a perfect match for their brand of quirky funk. ZZ Top's "Jesus Just Left Chicago" receives a gritty 13-minute reading with ample room for Page McConnell's blues-heavy piano. Guitarist Trey Anastasio alternates between quiet, emotive passages and searing power licks. There's also an a cappella version of the ragtime chestnut "Hello My Baby." Their patented blend of nonsensical lyrics and intense jams is represented by "Weigh" ("I'd like to cut your head off, so I can weigh it... Five pounds? Six pounds?") and by unrecorded fan favorites including "Mike's Song" and "Weekapaug Groove." --Marc Greilsamer

Product Description

This new album is the first installment of a regular series of live and experimental releases to complement their studio recordings. Recorded in an intimate club setting in Hamburg, Germany in early 1997, the album features over 78 minutes of music, including several previously unreleased songs.

Rolling Stone said once that Phish was perhaps the most importaint band of the 90's. I hadn't been a serious fan of the group (nor had I a full appreciation for their ability as live performers) until I got this album. The intimate, small crowd setting in Hamburg, Germany makes for a perfect opportunity for Phish to shine. The band seems very relaxed here, and lead guitarist Trey makes reference to having good memories of this particular stage. The first song on the disc is clearly a warm up, not just for the band, but also for the listener. Throughout the rest of the album however, (which I highly reccomend you take the time to listen to straight through without distractions) the band falls further into their groove, and near the end, the four musicians are so attuned to one another in that remarkable Phish way that it simply takes the breath away. This album exemplifies the talents of all four band members and shows their ability to create that wonderful "organized choas" of music that we haven't heard since the days of Pink Floyd and Syd Barret. If anyone doubts that Phish draws a vast amount of inspiration from early Pink Floyd, then look no further for your proof than the 5th track on this album(Mike's Song), which is without a doubt my favorite part of the performance. Mike's Song is a favorite of many Phish fans and doesn't have a studio version. After several minutes of jamming, the group pays homage to early Floyd when the song switches deftly to Syd Barret's psychadelic classic: Careful With that Axe Eugene. Knowing where Phish is drawing inspiration from gives me a new appreciation for their sound. Knowing that Phish is primarily a touring band, and produces a more inspired sound in front of a crowd, I also heartily reccomend that you look into their most popular live concert recording in A Live One. It's well worth a listen as well, but my favorite will always be Slip Stitch.

I'm sorry but no matter what others say this album is so tight and incredible.
Cities- Funky, cool and fresh
Wolfman's- This is probably the highlight of the show! It sounds so tight and perfect. Love it!
Jesus Left Chicago- This comes in right behind Wolfman's. Solid blues and funk. Page is an unbelievable piano player and vocalist.
Weigh- Listen to the comments between this and the last song. Fun. Just a good song. Weird lyrics.
Mike's Song- This isn't the best mike's but it definitely floats your boat. Good good good jam, especially the egyptian stuff near the end.
Lawn Boy- Sweet. A great mellow song. Again, page is so bad!
Weekapaug- My fav. song, Mike tears it up and the comments between Trey and Fishman during the intro are sweet! Great version.
Hello My Baby- They can sing a capella as well. Short and sweet.
Taste- This is the song i listen to the least on the album. It's still a very good song, very solid.
Plain and simple this album is so tight and its just music the way it was meant to be heard. Forget any negative comments. This is where it is. Phish is more musically diverse than anyone else, which makes them the best band hands down. Thankyou and peace.

I am new to the Phish arena; thus, my thoughts may not carry that much weight. Nevertheless, I am impressed thus far from what I have heard from this group. This album is the first live album I have heard from Phish, and it has only strengthened my interest towards the band. Of course, they still have a ways to go towards competing with such legendary bands as Pink Floyd; but, they are on the right track. Indeed, Phish uses their own abbreviated version of Pink Floyd's "Careful with that Axe, Eugene" at the end of Mike's Song. Mike's Song is my favorite of the album, mainly because I am biased to Trey's guitar work. However, all of the songs are great and go together in making a remarkable album. Like Pink Floyd, the albums of Phish can be played from start to end and one does not have to move around just to hear "smash hits."
Like the early works of the Floyd, I have found the songs making up Phish's albums to be incoherent as far as forming an overall theme. Pink Floyd clearly set out themes in their final works under the leadership of Waters. It will be interesting to see how Phish evolves in the future. What is certain, however, is that they are a great band. If you are new to the Phish scence, buy this album for it will make a believer out of it. Enjoy.

Although Phish live is always an excellent treat, this album contains the most somnabulant versions of these songs available. Phish's live style has evolved to such a point that their shows, while better than ever to watch, do not translate nearly as well onto tape. (those who were at the third Worcester show over Thanksgiving might know what I'm talking about). Anyway, although the songs are quite good, the version are definitely lacking. If you want to really check out what it's like to be at a Phish concert, check out "A Live One"... or better yet, buy a ticket.

Phish is an amazing band, no question. This release is one I keep coming back to for "Taste," the final track on the disc, and the two covers, "Cities" and "Jesus Left Chicago". The latter is one of my favorite tracks on any album, period. It shows Phish tackling a genre they usually don't approach so directly- the blues- with a style and grace that almost convinces me they are a blues-rock band masquerading as a prog-funk outfit. I am amazed that Trey can nail that sound so well, when he seems to practice it so rarely. It speaks volumes for the versatility of Trey and the band as a whole. The rest- good- but "A Live One" is better overall as it is "edgier" and sounds more fresh. Still, you can't go wrong here.
