In mid-April, Trey Anastasio and his new Ghosts Of The Forest rounded out their east coast tour with a pair of performances at the stunning United Palace in upper Manhattan.
During a chat with SiriusXM JamOn host Ari Fink, Trey announced a special live recording plan for Ghosts of the Forest’s New York City shows. He explained,
This has been in place all along, but, the idea was to take the two nights and record the shows as a live album at the United Palace Theatre. It will almost be like a regular recording session, with two passes at the shows. For example, when Aretha Franklin was famously recording a record she would do two passes and that was it. Everyone had to play live. So for us, this is like we get two takes at the United Palace Theatre, but most importantly, the full picture of the Ghosts of the Forest document will have our community members and family in the audience. The recording will end up being a live album.
On Tuesday, Anastasio unveiled the first pro-shot video from the recent Ghosts of the Forest NYC performances, which fans can enjoy and relive below:
