Ep 55 Pt. 1 — Phish 5.28.89

This week we are joined by our friend and guest host Jonathan, who brought us back to a wonderful show from 1989, from “Ian’s House” (or “Ian’s Party” at someone else’s house). Either way, Ian was awesome. This show is historic, fun, and filled with really excellent playing. Trey’s tone and precision in playing is just crisp, clear and on point, and as Jonathan pointed out, this is among the finest banter you’ll ever hear in a Phish show. Very entertaining listen. But even more than entertaining, it’s a reminder of how musically mature Phish was even by 1989—26 years ago. A great sounding show, taboot (taboot). This will be a 2-part podcast, with Set 1 this week, Set 2 and Set 3 next week. Chapter markers below. Here’s Charlie Dirksen’s review of the YEM.
