Phish Announces New Live Phish Audio Release From 1993 & Adds Video Feature To LivePhish+ Service
Phish has opened the vault to issue audio of an official recording of a concert from 1993. The latest LivePhish.com release was recorded at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, Oregon on August 26, 1993. Additionally, a new feature on the Live Phish app for LivePhish+ subscribers is on-demand video from select shows. The first full show videos cherry-picked for the service are Phish’s July 31, 2013 concert in Stateline, Nevada including the famed “Tahoe Tweezer” and the group’s July 13, 2014 performance at Randall’s Island in New York City. Look for additional videos to be added on a rotating basis.
As for the audio, the quartet’s lone visit to “The Schnitz” was the penultimate show of a cross-country tour that saw Phish firing on all cylinders. Each concert, especially in August, featured inventive setlists and stellar improvisation. Phish’s performance in Portland was no exception as it includes noteworthy versions of “Reba,” “Harry Hood,” “David Bowie” and “Split Open & Melt.”
Local icon Baby Gramps opened for the Vermonters, the third of three consecutive shows in which he would support Phish. Baby Gramps dueted with Phish drummer Jon Fishman on his own “Nothin’ But A Nothin,” as he did the previous evening in Seattle. Fish played vacuum while Baby Gramps sang and strummed guitar.
