Big Boat, Phish 13th studio album is now available to buy, download and stream just about everywhere. Produced by Bob Ezrin and recorded in Vermont, New York and Nashville the album features some songs we have heard over the last few years and some totally new songs.
My favorite of the new new songs is Petrichor this beautiful composition falls in line with YEM and Divided Sky. Since Friday this song has been played 2x and beautifully executed each time. Other new new song fav’s are Miss You and More.
No Man In No Man’s Land and Blaze on are of course 2 of my favorite. NMINML has been a big jam vehicle for the Summer especially at the Gorge N1.
Fun Fact: The album version of Things People Do is actually Page’s iPhone recording from his living room piano! The band preferred this version over all the studio versions they made.
Phish kicked off Fall tour with 2 nights in Charleston and last night (Sunday) in Jacksonville. Heavily mixing in song from the Big Boat the shows have been strong. Like summer not a lot of jamming but everything is played very tight.
Fall tour continues with Nashville this week. I will hop on Tour Friday in Atlanta for 2 show then head with them to Dallas for 2 nights. Phish will close our the tour with 4 nights in Vegas. I will be flying in Sunday for the last two nights including the always special Halloween Show!
Sounds like you’ve gotten out to see them live (or soon will) multiple times. I’m jealous, wish they played near my area on this tour. I got the chance to see them live only once a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) and it was one of the better concerts I’ve been to. No surprise, of course, but it would be nice to see them again.
Really enjoying this new album so far, especially ‘Breath and Burning’ and ‘Blaze On’. Plus several others. Enjoy the shows!
