GrantBrown Thanks for this guys. I grew up in South Carolina (I'm 33), and at my high school, phish cassettes from years 1993-1997 were being passed around like candy by those who had a taste for good music in general. Thus, I acquired my taste for Phish's sound during this era of the band. I must admit, that I've never truly accepted any other period of the band's music as "real phish". Having said that, and as shallow as that might sound, this Raleigh 95 Jim might at least explain how someone might feel that way. It's just plain ridiculous that 4 guys can produce sound like that with "regular" rock instruments. Back then, we didn't know how "good" Phish was, but we knew they were waaay different than anything we'd ever heard. And we liked it. In closing - I don't hear many people talk about the inline-4 stage setup that the band used during this period, and I'm curious to hear anyone's thoughts about how this setup might have lent itself to exploration like we heard here on this Raleigh 95 Jim. Thanks. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
