Weekend Nuggets: Colorado ’90 SBDs


Boulder Theatre (F.Drebin)

After Phish took their first major road trip to Colorado in 1988, they returned early and often. These shows wrapped up a five-show Halloween run through the  Rocky Mountain State, two years later in 1990. Some interesting info on these from from

“Sbd/Aud mixes: The following shows were recorded to DAT from a separate recording board at the shows. They are some of the highest quality Phish tapes in existence: 4/22/90, 10/30/90, 10/31/90, 11/2/90, 11/3/90, 11/4/90, 3/13/91, 3/15/91, 3/16/91, 3/17/91, 3/22/91, 3/23/91, 4/5/92.

Except for the 4/5/92 tape, they have all been fairly widely circulated. They were done on a large recording console (not EQ) and mixed completely separately from the board mix, rumoredly done in a truck outside the venue. The engineer used 2 audience mics to mix in crowd/hall ambience (on most of them).”

Enjoy these relics over a winter weekend!

(FYI: Torrents won’t be available this weekend, and further TAB shows won’t be posted until early next week. Cheers.)

Lots of great TAB reader reviews have been pouring in. Check em out!
