pnoidandroid I did not go to Coventry and really had no desire. I used to think the best aspect of the whole Coventry affair was that interactive dandelion on the website. I did buy the SBDs, listened once and was turned off by the botched composed pieces. Thanks to this post by @Icculus I gave Coventry a 2nd chance.

I've only listened to about 15% of all the shows that the band has played in their entirety but if anyone can recommend a show that contains more raw emotion than the Coventry ones, I would love to hear it.

The composed pieces are still botched and they don't get any easier on the ears but the improv is still good and full of emotion. Drowned even contains a Maggot Brain-like segment around the 8-min mark that upon re-listen really encapsulates for me what the band must have been going through.

Everyone has suffered loss at some point in their lives and if you can see it approaching you don't necessarily have your A-game. If i was about to loose something I had cultivated and nurtured for the last 20 years and had to face thousands of people while it occurred, I wish that I could show half the composure that they did on those days. 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.
