Weekend Nuggets: Pacific NW ’96


Portland '96

Since Phish has shied away from the Pacific Northwest this time around, here are a couple shows from ’96, when Phish was a nationally touring outfit. These shows were part of an extensive west coast run that concluded Fall ’96. (This Portland show may have been posted once, but now it will be in the permanent archives as well.)

    I am at work so I cannot comment on sound quality (crappy little cpu speakers), but that Sketches in Audio album provided some great listening this morning. Thanks!

    Noice!!! LB
    I appreciate you taking the time to check it… Thanks again.
    Thats good testing, if it sounded ok on small crappy speakers
    thats also a plus now a days!
    I asked my friend who has the fanciest of audio equipment to give it a listen
    and he said the mix was solid. Looking for second opinions, before I put up
    links on fb…
    Thanks again

  3. Little Buddy Says:

    My pleasure! I’ll be checking out Summer Daze later today.

  4. Stupendous Says:

    totally different style, NuBop Radicals is in between…
    I have so many different interests in music that I find it easiest to
    separate them with different project names…
    e.g. The Beasel is mostly electronic/dance oriented, NuBop Radical jazz fusion
    Billy Archilla is more space rock & jazz, and The Void is coming up soon
    which is pure experimental psychedelia…

    Thanks 4 listening LB!

  5. Stupendous Says:
