Phish Releases ‘The Story Of The Ghost’ On Vinyl
Phish put a special Phish Dry Goods vinyl pressing of their 1998 studio album, The Story Of The Ghost, up for sale via the online store. The 2-LP set has been pressed onto black and red vinyl following a vinyl reissue on Record Store Day Black Friday 2019.
Fourteen tracks are included on The Story Of The Ghost, an album produced and mixed by Andy Wallace. Phish recorded their seventh studio album between March 1997 and June 1998 during sessions held at Dave O’s Farmhouse near Stowe, Vermont and at Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, New York. Live staples “Ghost,” “The Moma Dance,” “Limb By Limb” and “Brian & Robert” are featured on the LP as well as material that has become rarer over the years such as “Shafty,” “Frankie Says” and “Fikus.” Tonight, Phish will rebroadcast their jam-filled Baker’s Dozen show at Madison Square Garden as part of the Dinner & A Movie livestream replay series, which includes the live debut — and to date only rendition — of album track “End Of Session.”
The Story Of The Ghost was remastered by Chris Bellman in March 2019 at Bernie Grundman Mastering for the vinyl editions that include the one on sale now via Dry Goods. Bellman “cut new lacquers for the updated vinyl edition from the digital flat masters.” Watch Phish lyricist Tom Marshall and co-host RJ Bee discuss The Story Of The Ghost with Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio below:
