    Huge General Phish Thread

    Hoist is up there with Billy Breathes for me. While they have other albums that might have a better colllection of songs, I feel like Hoist is a really well-played and well-produced album, and things like horns (including the Tower of Power horn section), banjo from Bela Fleck, female chorus singers, strings, Alison Kraus, and other guests on it make these songs sound different than they do live. It’s also the album that got me into Phish back in ‘94. People were calling it a sellout album and their worst album back then. Little did people know that they’d go on to release much worse albums in the future!

    Get the killer GD Pacific Northwest one instead. That thing is beautiful.

    All Things Mike Gordon

    Per Matt Laurence.... Mike Gordon Jan 1993 Interview Errata In Early 1993 I interviewed Mike Gordon in my parents' house in Lexington, MA for his first article in Bass Player magazine. While I can't find the other tape, this one is a herky-jerky discussion of his practice techniques and equipment, with a fairly embarrassing bass-on-bass jam in the middle in which I am severely outclassed (surprise... plus this was 25 years ago, I've gotten better). It's just fun to hear him talk and play so casually in such a low-key context, with some basic wisdom on practicing that still holds solid.

    It's definitely my favorite studio album of theirs by far, and the best-produced IMO. And probably the only phish studio album that I still like listening to straight through from start to finish. Ghost is #2 and I already have that on vinyl. I bought it years ago when it cost the same as every other regular-ass new record did.

    I think there's truth to all of this. Mexico is prohibitively expensive for most fans (and more power to those who can swing it). And after thousands of people invested so much time and money into Curveball only to get burned by the cancelation may still be licking their wounds. Most people are probably very hesitant to throw down another several thousand dollars into a Phish getaway. Plus, NYE looms. Another four-show run that requires a lot of travel for people, lodging, and all the other usual expenses. If you're not from the northeast, then YEMSG probably takes up to $1000 for four shows plus whatever vacation/travel time. \\ On top of that, the previous Mexico shows haven't been stellar in terms of musical quality. When it comes to talking about the sets or certain performances, Rivera Maya doesn't jump to the head of the conversation with anyone I talk to. What I gather from people who have gone (and I haven't, so I'm on the outside looking in), people talk about the experience. The love of waking up at a sunny resort, having cocktails and frozen drinks during the day, lounging by the pool, and seeing Phish at night while dancing on the beach with friends in a small crowd. It sounds truly lovely. It's the unique experience that's being sold. It's exclusive by nature. The fact that it's not popular this year is a confluence of bad luck and bad timing. Still, I would go in a heartbeat if I could swing it. See you guys at New Year's.

    I will say that it's the one album of theirs I'd most like to have in that format... very organic/acoustic/whatever you want to call it.
