Episode 184: Best First Sets (Remixed)

This week, we’re revisiting an episode from early 2018 when our friend Ben joined us to discuss the best first sets Phish has played. We talked about what makes a great first set, how the amazing moments in first sets have evolved over time, and finish by talking about the state of the band just after the monumental year of 2017 came to a close. 

This episode has been remixed from the original recordings. Let us know if you’d like for us to go back and polish up any other classic HFPod episodes!
