Phish: 2-DVD live at Walnut Creek 1997/07/22

Phish: Walnut Creek

Yet another archival release from Phish: a 2-DVD filmed at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC - 1997/07/22. Release date: August 5th.

On July 22, 1997, Phish performed the second show of their U.S. summer tour at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC through a torrent of rain, thunder and lightning. Rather than cancel the gig, the band played on with the music mirroring the peaks of the storm's intensity. Highlights include "Down With Disease" that slowly segues into "Mike's Song" - the first and only time these two classic tunes were ever paired together in such a way - as well as "Taste," complete with near Biblical thunder and lightning display.

Overall the show is remembered as a significant example of Phish's hallmark approach to group improvisation with the performances here characterized by an exceptionally democratic and refined balance of four musical voices. This 2-DVD set features more than 2 1/2 hours of 5-camera footage with 5.1 Dolby Surround or optional stereo sound.

Anyone who pre-orders the DVD from Dry Goods will receive Phish: Left Nuts, a bonus CD featuring more than 75 minutes of previously unreleased music from Phish's past performances at Walnut Creek, produced specifically for this release.

In addition, you can pre-order (available for download on August 5th) MP3 and Flac versions of Walnut Creek's audio at LivePhish.com and get an exclusive bonus track of You Enjoy Myself with special guest Boyd Tinsley from 6/16/95 Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, Raleigh, NC.
