Phish To Release ‘A Live One’ On Vinyl

In June of 1995 Phish issued the quartet’s first official live album, A Live One. The famed release is coming to vinyl for the first time this fall. A Live One’s vinyl 4-LP set is due on October 27.

A Live One was recorded during a historic year for the band, 1994. Most tracks were culled from Phish Fall Tour 1994, but others from that year’s summer and holiday tours were also used. Here’s more info from a listing on Bull Moose:

The band produced the album, selecting the material and overseeing the mix to 1/2″ reels in March-April 1995 with Ed Thacker and his team of engineers at Bearsville Studios. A Live One contains twelve original Phish compositions, five of which were previously unreleased: “Gumbo,” “Slave To The Traffic Light,” “Wilson,” “Simple,” and “Harry Hood.” The record was sequenced to approximate a two-set Phish performance and every track from the more-than-two-hour collection is notable – from the thirty-plus minute “Tweezer” to the “Wilson” opener from the band’s first Madison Square Garden show. “Gumbo” featured an updated version of Phish’s own Giant Country Horns. More than twenty years later, A Live One “Stash” and “Harry Hood” still rank among both songs’ top performances. After five studio albums, A Live One captured and conveyed the magic of the band’s improvisational live shows, and every song on the record (except “Montana”) has remained a staple of Phish shows ever since. A Live One was released by Elektra June 27, 1995 on CD and cassette. It was the first Phish album to be certified gold and remains Phish’s best selling album. The laquers for the vinyl edition were cut from the 1/2” flat masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto 180g vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the album transferred from vinyl.

As mentioned, the vinyl comes with a free MP3 of the album transferred from vinyl.
