Phish Announces ‘Colorado ’88’

Phish has announced that they’re releasing a 3-CD set from their tour of Colorado in 1988. Classic…

We’re delighted to announce Colorado ’88, a three-CD set of recordings compiled from Phish’s seminal tour of the Rocky Mountain State, available now for pre-order, with a Halloween release date. Mastered from the original analog cassette tapes, Colorado ’88 contains recordings of songs that, until now, have not been widely traded or heard with such clarity. Several of the tracks found in the collection have never before appeared on an official Phish release. [Phish.com]

This should be an interesting archival release, especially considering the age. Full info after the jump…

Having conquered the New England college club circuit, Phish embarked on a storied adventure West. The band played seven shows in ten days to tiny crowds in small bars and restaurants in the ski towns of Telluride and Aspen. Colorado ’88 culls, in chronological order, the best of those shows, providing a vivid glimpse into the days before the three and four-night stands at amphitheatres and arenas that would distinguish Phish in the years to come.

The material on Colorado ’88 depicts the young band at one of the heights of their characteristic adventurousness. From extended forays into their Gamehendge mythology to classic and obscure covers, to cult gems, Colorado ’88 includes much of the hard-to-find early Phish that die-hards have sought after for years. The release gives fans the chance to share the experience of hearing the band in such an intimate setting.

Colorado ’88 is available now for pre-order exclusively from Phish Dry Goods and will also be offered for track-by-track download, along with five bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere, from LivePhish.com. For a complete tracklisting and to pre-order Colorado ’88, click here.
