Phish Issue Vintage Live Show for Hurricane Sandy Relief

leave a comment »

Phish NJ 1993Perennial jam-band Phish may not be typical Second Disc fare, but a catalogue site run by two guys with close ties to New Jersey isn’t going to let this slip by: the band is releasing a vault show from nearly two decades ago, with proceeds going to The American Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Recorded in support of their third album, Rift, the show finds Trey Anastasio and company at New Brunswick’s State Theatre on May 9, 1993 playing tracks from that album (“Rift,” “Weight,” “It’s Ice”) and others in a lengthy two-set stand. (More notes from band archivist Kevin Shapiro are here.)

Available in MP3 for $9.99 and FLAC/ALAC for $12.99, you can buy the show here and use a little bit of music catalogue love to make a difference to a place in the country that needs some help. Hit the jump for the full set list. (Thanks to super-reader Tom for the tip!)
