BW..... There is your answer, the 6/11/94 RR show is maybe THE (or at least one of THE) show(s) of the '90's, if not ever! Start there.

I just listened to the Red Rocks show and it is really good. Now I'm gonna listen to the 5-1-93 show.

Don't do it man...


I couldn't agree with you more. DON'T DO IT! Ever listen to the lyrics of some of their songs? They sound like something out of a Cracker Jack factory. Why on God's Green Earth would someone want to listen to or see a band whose drummer wears Granny's dresses, a special flying hat and goggles? Please, I beg you sir, DON'T DO IT.

I almost got stuck having to see these fools for New Years.

Rift, A Picture of Nectar, Billy Breathes, Joy, Lawn Boy, Farmhouse are all good

92-95 and 1998

2009 was a pretty good year too!

I have seen at least 50 Phish shows since the early 90's and to pick one era to begin. I'll give you some dates that you should look into.

5/8/93 UNH field house
3/1/2003 Greensboro Coluseum
7/16/94 Sugarbush Vt. Best Hood EVER!!!
5/6/95 Lowell Mass, Best Reba EVER!!!
Arrowhead Ranch, Can't remember the date 90 or 91
12/28 and 12/29/95
12/31/92 Matthews Arena
4/21/95 Winston Salem, NC

Those are some dates of some great shows That should more than get you going.
Also the Great Went, Clifford Ball and the IT festivals are all good too. Happy listening.

The flying hat and goggles were something he broke out for the NYE gag.

Why on God's Green Earth would I want to listen to some fat guy who wears dirty black Tshirts all the time and has a nasally, voice and sounds like he can barely breath and only plays these "magic" guitars with tigers, wolves and skeletons on them?

A good place to start is LSD...unless we are talking about how "their gear" relates, lets not go here! There are plenty of other places to discuss "them" just 10 cents :?

in my opinion their cd "a live one" is a great place to start.

its really strange how up tight people get about what other people listen to. i can't understand what threatens people so much about someone else having different tastes or opinions. we're talking about music not sports.

Nugsnet=52 free Phish shows, that's where I got started. Then last year I downloaded a show off their website from their 2009 tour. I'm still not completley sold on them, but am starting to dig them more and more. They definitley have some good jams.
