7/6/98 Prague = New LivePhish Release; Includes Sickest 'Ghost' in Phishtory


My buddy Enzo gave me a show from Europe 98 that had a version of Ghost that fuckin' blew me away. I always called it the best Ghost that I ever heard. And guess what? Phish will be releasing that version at the latest livephish.com release along with and the entire 7.6.98 show at the Lucerna Theatre in Prague, Czech Republic.

Wow. Thanks, guys!

Here's the press release that Phish sent us.
Next Tuesday (3/25/08) JEMP Records will be releasing another of Phish's classic shows, 7/6/98 from the Lucerna Theatre in Prague, Czech Republic. In keeping with recent livephish.com releases this show has been mastered by Fred Kevorkian from Paul Languedoc's 2-track soundboard reference DATs. To save space, along with renting most of their gear while flying from city to city on the 1998 European tour, the shows were not recorded to multi-track.

This release will be available in both of our normal digital download formats, MP3 and FLAC, as well as on CD (packaged in an innovative and earth friendly, fully recycled folding softcase-pak) . This release will not yet be available in stores but you can pick it up from both Phish Dry Goods (www.drygoods.phish.com) and the LivePhish Download Store ( www.livephish.com). Dry Goods and LivePhish.com will have bundle packages available, so you can save on both hard goods and downloads.

July 6, 1998 is the second of two shows Phish played at the Lucerna Theatre, an old theater turned into a music club located a few flights below street level in the Nove Mesto section of Prague. This show entwines music from the album "The Story of The Ghost" with Phish classics in a non-stop, hard-rocking performance elevated by its unique location and intimate setting. The intimacy of this show can not be overestimated - the average size of the venues Phish was playing at in the United States at the time were easily 20-30 times larger.
