MUSIC NEWS- Jam rockers Phish has just released Amsterdam, an 8-CD box set containing three full live shows from 1997, recorded at Paradiso in The Netherlands. The recordings have been fully mixed and mastered from the band's multi-tracks, and the box set is available to order now from their Dry Goods store.
Back on on February 17, 1997, Phish first played Paradiso, a converted former church turned rock-club/cultural center with a capacity of about 1,500. Phish logged three breakthrough shows at this historic venue over four months that year (on February 17, July 1,and July 2, 1997), where the intimate setting pushed the music to new heights again and again. The recordings from these three shows comprise some of the most experimental music Phish has ever made. The Amsterdam box delivers the full impact of a shared peak experience in an exotic locale seamlessly integrated and sizzling with creative intensity.
