DOWNLOADS OF THE WEEKEND:
These are the shows that everyone had on analog at some point in the ’90s. Some of most circulated tapes, these Arrowhead Ranch shows were a staple of any fan’s listening rotation at one point or another. Smack dab in the middle of Phish’s famed Summer ’91 tour with the Giant Country Horn, these shows were an early signpost on Phish’s road to glory. With Dave Grippo on alto sax, Russell Remington on tenor, and Carl Gerhard on trumpet, songs such as “Stash,” “Split,” Gumbo,” and “Cavern” took on new life with new arrangements. Bringing a fusion feel to Phish’s unique form of rock and roll, the horns added an undeniable dynamic to their music and improvisation. These two shows, the second in SBD fashion, are a hallmark of Phish history.
