Later this month, Phish will embark on their summer tour which will find the band traveling across the U.S. and culminating with a two-night run at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Colorado. Before they do, they have a special treat for their fans. Today, they have shared a free download of Live Bait Vol. 14.
The collection features seven tracks lasting well over two hours. Six of the seven were recorded between 1997 and 2000, with the outlier being an epic 34+ minute "Tweezer" > "Prince Caspian" from the band's 2015 Magnaball festival in Watkins Glen, NY. The longest jam of the bunch is a nearly 40 minute "Gotta Jibboo" > "Saw It Again" > "Magilla" from the E Centre in Camden (now known as the BB&T Pavilion).
Lots of great stuff here. Other tracks include "Harry Hood" from the Gorge Amphitheatre, "McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters" from the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, "Wolfman's Brother" from South Park Meadows in Austin (which has sadly been turned into a shopping mall), "What's The Use?" from Walnut Creek in Raleigh, and "Runaway Jim" from Columbia, MD.
Phish kick off their tour on July 17 in Nevada, then head out for their Fall tour in mid-October. For concert tickets and more, check out the Phish Zumic artist page.
