Phish: "The Clifford Ball" 12-LP box set; "Flatbed Jam" LP

Phish has announced the release of The Clifford Ball as a 12-LP set:

Brand new 12-LP 25th Anniversary vinyl box set of Phish’s acclaimed two-day festival The Clifford Ball featuring every note from Phish’s landmark concert that drew more than 70,000 fans to upstate New York in August of 1996. The box set features just under 8 hours of music, fully mixed and mastered, with six complete sets recorded live August 16 & 17, 1996 and pressed on a whopping 12-LPs with audio recorded by Paul Languedoc and vinyl mastered and lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. In addition to the 12 colored vinyl discs (Day 1 on Orange vinyl and Day 3 on sky blue), the deluxe box set includes a 40+ page book with extensive liner notes by Parke Puterbaugh and photographs from the weekend by Danny Clinch.

The box set is available for pre-order from Drygoods. The late night "Flatbed Jam" is released separately as a Tarmac Pavement pressing. Release date: March 22. The digital version is now for sale via August 16, August 17, 1996, and a package with both days.

The festival was released as a massive 7-DVD box set in 2009. It is long out of print, but worth tracking down one on the secondary market.
