Title Play: The title plays on the title of the biggest selling album of the 1970s, Peter Frampton's Frampton Comes Alive.

2-Track: The source, completed and unedited, is Paul's two-track feed from soundboard.

Not tradeable: Tapes of these shows, made by amatuer tapers, have circulated since soon after the show. However, the revised official taping policy clearly states, "In no case may any officially-released Phish recording (live or studio) be duplicated or otherwise traded or offered.

RU In It? Liner notes are anticipated to include fan-contributed photographs, art, etc. On 7/22/99, Shelly issued an email which suggests that 11/20-21/98 may be the next live release. (DSBDs of the second night second set circulate very lightly, thanks to a leak.)

    "ALL POINTS BULLETIN.... Calling anyone in the vicinity of the HAMPTON COLISEUM on the nights of November 20th or 21st, 1998. We need your assistance - that is, your photos, your stories, anecdotes, drawings - anything that illustrates the Hampton experience last fall. Your material doesn't have to relate directly to the shows; it could be before or after as well as during the concerts. Please send anything you have to Phish HAMPTON, Box 4400, Burlington, Vermont 05401. Anything you send becomes the property of Phish and will not be returned, so be sure to keep copies of any photos that you want for yourself. Thank for your help."
