    Who else, besides me, is really looking forward to Phish's next album? I saw Trey Anastasio November 1 in Atlanta and he was amazing. Round Room is what its being titled. I've only heard one song off of it, Pebbles and Marbles, and that was one of the best phish songs period.

    hey van -

    my old roomate was a pretty big phish fan. i would often hear him play stuff. some of it i was like "whoa...this is awesome." other stuff i was like, "wtf?"

    so, i wouldn't mind revisiting their stuff. if you were trying to "ease" someone into phish what would you recommend?

    do they have a best-of or anything like that?

    thx,

    ted

    Somewhat like the Dead, Phish is a different beast live than in the studio.

    Studiowise, Hoist is a great album to start off with. Farmhouse, which isn't a favorite among some fans, is fantastic, in my book.

    For live stuff, you can start with A Live One (2 discs) or Slip, Stitch and Pass. Both give an adequate example of what their live shows are like, even though both are compilations.

    i think i agree that the live stuff i've heard seemed cooler. they definitely seemed to have a better dynamic.

    i think i'll check out "a live one"...

    thx greg!

    Van, I was at that Atlanta show too! It was great to hear 'Magilla' with those 5 horns.

    I always look forward to a new Phish album and will now scour the net for that song you mentioned. Any advice?

    Anyone going to the New Year's or Hampton shows?

    Go to Kazaa and type in Pebbles and Marbles...it'll say it's by Trey but oh well. Also type in "Nothing But an E Thing." Thats the same song with no vocals.

    The only thing about Phish which I know is the saying: "Great band; pity about the fans!".

    You can also download a really good quality MP3 of Pebbles and Marbles off Trey Anastasio's solo band website in the Audio/Video section. I'm looking forward to hearing Phish play it.. It's much more a Phish sounding song than a Trey Band song.

    I picked up Trey's new solo in DVD-A a few weeks ago. Fun listening to say the least.

    I've heard the new album only took 12 hours to record.....dunno, that's not a lot of time to work the material.

    As I have been mentioning in the other Phish related thread, Junta is my favorite albumn -- they are all so excellent though. [​IMG]
    I have attended many a Phish show back before they officially released any CD's (it's great to have followed them from so long ago), they are the best... they have such fun and crazy innovative lyrics and the tunes are muscially incredible.
    They are one of the few bands that is actually better when hearing them live and are in a music genre of their own ! There shows are the best I have ever been too -- especially the outside venues !
