Watch Phish Performing ‘Cluster Flies’ Songs Live

Advertisement

JamBase continues to celebrate the pending release of Cluster Flies, a covers compilation reimagining Phish’s album Farmhouse with today’s edition of Sunday Cinema. Powered by the JamBase Live Video Archive (JBLVA), below is a collection of live videos featuring Phish performing the 17 songs that appear on Cluster Flies.

In order to present an all-new version of Farmhouse, the songs on Cluster Flies are presented in an entirely new sequence. The compilation also includes “Driver” and “Mountains In The Mist,” which were bonus tracks on the Japanese edition of Farmhouse. Further expanding on the original release, Cluster Flies also features covers of Farmhouse-era songs that have not appeared on a Phish studio album, “Dogs Stole Things,” “Bye Bye Foot” and “Vultures.”


The limited-edition 3LP mastered by engineer Joe Lambert features custom artwork and a poster designed by Phish collaborator Jim Pollock. Phish covers were recorded by Umphrey’s McGee’s Brendan Bayliss, Club d’Elf, Daniel Donato, Chris Forsyth, Neal Francis, Jennifer Hartswick, Amy Helm, Lindsay Lou, Reed Mathis, White Denim’s James Petralli, Strand Of Oaks, Sylvan Esso, William Tyler, Sadler Vaden, Vetiver, Ryley Walker, and a supergroup led by Tim Palmieri.

Following the same sequence as the Cluster Flies tracklist, the videos below feature Phish performing each of the 12 songs on Farmhouse, the two Japanese bonus tracks and the trio of newly added tunes. In an effort to capture the Farmhouse era, videos were chosen from that time period whenever possible, with all but one (“Mountains In The Mist”) taking place between 1997 and 2000.

Included is footage from a November 1997 appearance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien when Phish debuted the song “Farmhouse.” Additional television appearances that are part of the collection include PBS’ Sessions At West 54th in October 1998, The Late Show With David Letterman and VH1’s Hard Rock Live in May 2000, and Austin City Limits in July 2000.

Other performances come from Phish concerts held on various tours around the world. Phish can be seen making their debut at the Bridge School Benefit Concerts in October 1998, playing from midnight to sunrise in the Florida Everglades on New Year’s Eve 1999, and on stage in Europe in 1997 and 1998 and in Japan in 2000.
