On this episode of the Helping Friendly Podcast, we revisit the 20th anniversary of the Island Tour. 20 years later, we’re still upside down from the Island Tour. We had to celebrate this awesome run, so we talk about a notable jam from each night. We had some laughs, discussed the legacy of the run and how it looks from 20 years out, and then we played some Phish. We hope you enjoy. You can listen by visiting our site or through the player below.

The Island Tour still stands up really well and remains an important point in Phish history. We talk in depth about each night, but focus on the 4/2 Twist, the 4/3 Roses Are Free, the 4/4 Brother and the 4/5 Cavern. We talk a lot about the ‘97 sound and how much and whether that comes through in this run—or whether this is the beginning of a brand new era of Phish.

Let us know what you think of all this, we’d love the feedback.
