Phish "Hampton/Winston-Salem '97" 7-CD Box Set In Stores December 6th


On December 6, Phish will dip into the "Holy Grail" of legendary shows to release Hampton/Winston-Salem '97. Among some of the most requested shows for release from the Phish Archives. The 7-CD box set, features three complete shows recorded Live November 21 & 22, 1997 Hampton Coliseum, Hampton, VA and November 23, 1997 Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, NC, in the midst of Phish's legendary 1997 Fall Tour. Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 contains all the music played over these three shows for a total of 45 songs (8 hours of music from Paul Languedoc's stereo soundboard mix, remastered by Fred Kevorkian).

The 1997 Hampton Coliseum shows were the band's first two-night stand at Hampton Coliseum – a venue they have played a total of fifteen times including a two-night stand in 1998 (released as Hampton Comes Alive) and a trio of reunion shows in 2009. The shape and feel of the venue have earned it the nickname "The Mothership" among fans. The next show after Hampton 1997 took place at Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina - another familiar venue where Phish also performed in 1994, 1995 and 1998.

According to Phish Archivist, Kevin Shapiro: "The Hampton/Winston-Salem 97 shows were packed with notable renditions of classics including "Split Open And Melt", "AC/DC Bag", "Slave To The Traffic Light", "Mike's Song", "Halley's Comet", "Tweezer", "Run Like An Antelope", "Stash" and "Bathtub Gin". The band also showcased a wide variety of newer covers from the debut of the Rolling Stones' "Emotional Rescue" to Del McCoury's "Beauty Of My Dreams", Jimi Hendrix's "Izabella", Clifton Chenier's "My Soul" and even an impromptu take on War's "Low Rider". The Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 shows also showcased newer originals like "Dogs Stole Things", "Ghost", "Piper" and the brand-new-for-fall instrumental "Black-Eyed Katy", which is the only song repeated on the release.More than what was played, the sheer heights of these performances are what made them special and built their acclaim."

Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 is available for preorder now at Phish Dry Goods. Everyone who orders from Phish Dry Goods will receive a code for a FREE complete MP3 download of the entire Hampton Winston/Salem '97 7-CD Box Set.

2011 Commemorative NYE NYC MSG Token Pendant by Jennifer Kahn

      

As see on cashortrade.org

Let the collection begin, with Jennifer Kahn's 2nd token. This year there are many fish and they play a more active role in the design - poised to take a bite out of the big apple. Not only does it commemorate the New Year's Run with all 4 dates etched along the edge, but it is a true sign of the times with the letters "OCCUPY MSG" subtly spelled out among the fish. We might be small but our numbers are strong. From a distance the image resembles a flower... we come in peace.

Available in Sterling silver as a token $25, or pendant (on cord $38, or sterling chain $48) and NEW THIS YEAR - BRASS (not pictured) as a token $15, magnet $20, or pendant on cord $25. Token is the size of a quarter. Makes a great holiday gift for your favorite fan! This is a limited edition of 100 tokens. Jen's signature can be found on the bottom edge.

Once again, Jen is donating 10% of every sale to the Mockingbird Foundation.
