Phish has announced the launch of LP of LP (Live Phish on Long Play), a new vinyl-only series that will feature “some of the finest hand-picked Live Phish tracks.”
LP on LP 01 will feature Phish’s massive “Ruby Waves” jam from the band’s 2019 summer tour closer at East Troy WI’s Alpine Valley Music Theatre. According to the announcement, the 38-minute “Ruby Waves” was recorded by Garry Brown and mixed from the multitrack masters by Elliot Scheiner. The LP is pressed on “ruby waves colored vinyl.”
LP on LP 02 will spotlight the Phish’s famous “Waves” soundcheck jam from 5/6/11 at Bethel Woods, where the band was set to kick off a lengthy 2011 summer tour the following night. As the announcement notes, “Despite its origin, Bethel Tech “Waves” was anything but practice – it was a profound improvisation experienced live by only the band and crew.” The 25-minute Bethel “Waves” soundcheck was recorded by Jon Altschiller and mixed from the multitrack masters by Elliot Scheiner. The LP is pressed on “blue waves colored vinyl.”
Phish has yet to comment on the status of the band’s scheduled 2021 tour dates, officially set to start in Eugene, OR on July 13th. For more information, head here.
