Editorial: Phish Is Not The Disco Biscuits [PhishNet]

Lately it seems like all of the criticism and hopes for summer tour come from one place, the endless cry of, “Phish need to jam more in 2010!”  I understand that.  There’s nothing like a great Phish jam.   However, in all of the calls for the return of improvisation, what’s being forgotten is that only on a few tours was Phish really about major improvisations.

For the vast majority of their career, big jams were exceptions, the occasional treat that made the tour.  The problem is that those shows are the ones that get played over and over again down the road, so people think that that was more of the norm.  I know that I listen to the Bomb Factory a lot more than I put in 5/22/94.
