Phish 'Two Soundchecks' Limited Edition 7-inch Available For Record Store Day


On Record Store Day, Phish will release TWO SOUNDCHECKS, a Limited Edition 7-inch vinyl record that will be available exclusively at participating independently owned record stores across the country. TWO SOUNDCHECKS marks the band's first ever live vinyl release and their first release in conjunction with Record Store Day.

This 7-inch is limited to 2,000 hand-numbered copies, and once they are gone they are gone. The A-Side is an instrumental jam culled from the soundcheck of Phish's third show of a sold out three-night stand at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. The B-Side is an especially exotic soundcheck from Hartford, CT in 2009, featuring Trey on Bass, and Fish on drums. This Limited Edition 7-inch was created exclusively for Record Store Day.

TWO SOUNDCHECKS will be available in stores only beginning April 16th, 2011. For a complete list of participating record stores, please click here.


Daily Audio: Phish "Possum" 3.13.92 Campus Club ~ Providence, RI


Not knowing many tapers or trading circles in my early years of Phish, I was forced to find other means to give me more of what I wanted. Fortunately for my ears, (and unfortunately for my wallet) my local-independent music store carried bootlegged cd's. One of my first purchases was an unlabeled, un-tracked single Cd imported from "Germany" for around thirty dollars. Years later, I would find out this "imported" disc was the second set of Phish's gig on March 13th, 1992. The Possum with the musical language explanation caught my attention immediately and helped stir some of my initial interest in the band. These days I can't stand to hear it anymore (although I wont deny the energy it's capable of harnessing in the live setting). However, if they brought back some of the musical language induced Possums of '92, it would be a welcomed breath of fresh air. Until then, I'll meet you in the bathroom.
