Reviews: New Release – Phish Hampton / Winston-Salem ’97 [Dog Gone Blog]

Set between the abstract psychedelia that stretched from 1994-1996 and the cosmic rock that formed between 1998 and 2000, this phase marked the largest upending in Phish’s career since they graduated from playing Grateful Dead and Wilson Pickett tunes in the 80s. The inspiration for this transition came while performing the entirety of Talking Heads’ Remain in Light on Halloween ’96, gradually taking hold over the following year, and finally coming to fruition during the fall of ’97.

Debates: Tales of Mental Tangle – 11/22/1997 vs. 11/23/1997 [Online Phish Tour]

5125: The number of days we lived without pristine soundboards of the classic Hampton/Winston-Salem ’97 run since the shows were played.

0: The number of days we’ll live without them from here on out.

That’s right, the wait is finally over: three of the greatest shows in Phish history have now been officially released. And while we’re mostly thinking about how meaningless we now realize life to have been up until this point, we can’t help but let one other thought run through our heads: which of these three juggernauts is the best?

Remembrances: Hampton ’97 – A Look Back, Part One [Phish.net]

The opener in hindsight is a tremendous treat, the debut of The Rolling Stones “Emotional Rescue.” A song that only Mike could properly handle his shift between baritone and falsetto tones pays a nice homage to a legend like Jagger. It’s also a glimpse into the vocal range Mike has always possessed. In 1997 his vocals felt more like a goof than a talent, but fourteen years later you can hear the potential and see the connection to the extremely strong vocal presence he maintains now.

Live Phish: Phish to Release Hampton / Winston-Salem ’97 [Hidden Track]

When discussing the Holy Grail of Phish shows stuck inside the band’s vault, the Hampton ’97 performances and Big Cypress are usually towards the top of most fans’ lists. On December 6, Phish fans will finally get to hear the Hampton ’97 performances in all their Fred Kevorkian-mastered soundboard glory when JEMP Records puts out Hampton / Winston Salem ’97. The wonderful kicker is that the band has attached the severely underrated November 23, 1997 show to this seven-CD set that will also include never-before-heard soundchecks.

Songs: The Ghost of Nuremberg [Dog Gone Blog]

The next time the song appeared was on 7.3 in Nuremberg. This was the first version that fully opened up, allowing the band to truly explore its musical offerings. Over the course of 30 minutes, you’ll hear the jam transition from a funk-laden groove to a melodic section of delectable psych rock. You can hear the band’s excitement as they stretch out their new tune and toy with various themes throughout.
