Dog Gone Blog: "Phishtory" 11.23.85 Goddard College [Review]

From this show, we have a very limited setlist, and an even more limited recording. The “Whipping Post” > “Jam” segment is likely where Mike’s experience took place. It was here that Mike realized his path, and committed himself to a life of music. The playing is raw, but the jamming appears to be way ahead of its time. This isn’t the type of show you will be throwing on regularly, but rather an essential piece of phish history. It’s less in the music being played, and more in the undeniable creative energy that exists in this early recording. Over the course of nearly 30 minutes, the band travels through numerous passages, very reminiscent of a jam from “The Other One”, reaching numerous musical peaks.

I agree 100%. While were at it can we go back to the old PTBM mail order process done by the Flynn Theater Box Office.
The delay can definitely cause issues. If you get a partial tour fill, tickets could come when you’re already on the road. When you send tickets out this close to showtime, it doesn’t take much of a shipping delay to cause issues. And while scalping is something worthy of stopping, plans can fall through. The shows you think you’re going to in March might not be your actual June plan. Selling tickets to friends for face has always been part of the Phish community and that also is made more difficult by the delays.
