bushwood_a_dump This was the first Phish I ever heard.

A heavily generationed 100 minute cassette that ran from Bag to JJLC was given to me by my serious Deadhead friend in February of '92.

I can't say I was hooked immediately, but somewhere between the fascination of The Curtain and the respectful blues-roots of JJLC, I knew this was a serious proposition.

Nectar came out a few weeks later and I saw my first show shortly after that (5-1-92).

It is funny to revisit this show now (I have since garnered a much higher quality copy). It seems so tame compared to Phish "jamming" standards of today, and the years since, but at the time it was absolutely wonky and out of this world. I guess that demonstrates how these guys kept growing and evolving over the years.


Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
