Phish Announces Latest Batch of Limited Live Phish Remasters

Capping off a busy week for JEMP records, the third batch of Live Phish Limited releases was announced earlier today. Two "cherry picked" shows from Phish's most recent fall tour (10/26/10 & 10/30/10) have been given the Fred Kevorkian treatment and will be available for download via iTunes on Tuesday, April 12th. As with the last two batches, a limited number of CD's will be pressed and made available at select music stores nationwide, as well as Phish Dry Goods.

October 26th is highlighted by a soulful cover of Gregory Isaacs "Night Nurse" (one of my favorite moments of the year) sandwiched within "Makisupa Policeman." October 30th reeks of Led Zeppelin teases, and is a wise choice to appeal to the masses and casual fan.

One day after Phish announced their Limited Edition "Record Store Day" release, Mike Gordon has announced two of his albums will be available on vinyl for purchase starting April 16th, as well.

In conjunction with Record Store Day 2011, Mike Gordon will release Inside In and Moss Remixes as Limited Edition Vinyl albums that will be available exclusively at participating independently owned record stores across the country.

Nearly eight years after Mike's debut solo release, Inside In, we're unleashing the album on vinyl for the first time as a deluxe double-LP set. For Record Store Day, Inside In has been pressed on 180g orange vinyl and includes "Minkinetics", "Trinners March" and "Be Your Tape", three previously unreleased outtake tracks from the album (available only on vinyl). Musicians on the album include Phish's Jon Fishman, Bela Fleck, Col. Bruce Hampton, Buddy Cage, Vassar Clements and others.

In addition, Moss Remixes, a Limited Edition 7-inch featuring two remixes from Mike's latest solo album Moss (released in October 2010) will be available at participating record stores. The release is limited to 1,000 copies. The idea was not to "remix" the songs, but instead, work with the moments that had lead to the germination of the songs. The A and B sides include full remixes of "Horizon Line" and "Fire From A Stick" (which incorporate bits of original demos, bass and drum jams, and many added extra textures).

Both 'Inside In' and 'Moss Remixes' will be available in stores beginning April 16th, 2011. For a complete list of participating record stores, please click here.

Can't You Hear Me Knockin'



Daily Audio: Phish "Quinn the Eskimo -> Mike's Song" 10.15.86 Hunt's ~ Burlington, VT


I love this mid-80's paring for a few reasons:

1. Patient jamming in-between each verse...Trey's first solo is a straight-up Jerry impersonation, Page shines on the second section.
2. Intense exploratory jam out of Quinn. Reminds me a lot of a late 60's "Lovelight"
3. The smooth transition into Mike's. Showing their raw talent for effortless transitions even in '86.
4. Gorgeous melodic jamming in Mike's. Hard to believe this is 1986 and easy to hear why Jeff Holdsworth left.
5.'s in-depth song histories on both these songs (makes for great reading while listening): Quinn the EskimoMike's Song
