It’s been quite some time since a new Phish DVD came out, so we we’re overjoyed to see that – according to a newly created page on Allmusic which includes a JEMP catalog number – the band will be releasing video of its November 2, 1996 performance at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL titled Coral Sky. The show came just two days after the groundbreaking Remain In Light cover set in Atlanta and features a ridiculously good Crosseyed and Painless > Run Like An Antelope segment.
We’re still awaiting more details on the release, but at least now we can start salivating over what should be an incredible archival release. Other highlights besides the 45-minute Crosselope include a unique version of Ya Mar that opens and percussion guest star Karl Perazzo’s work throughout. Segments of this show were broadcast on the radio including the aforementioned Ya Mar and Crosselope. This marks the first time video of this gig will be seen by the masses and makes two archival DVD releases in a row from a three month period along with the previously released Clifford Ball set.
Saturday, 11/02/1996 Coral Sky Amphitheater, West Palm Beach, FL

Notes: Karl Perazzo sat in on percussion for the entire show. Butch Trucks joined the band on drums for the encore while Fishman played Trey’s percussion rack. The lyric “Norton Charlton Heston” replaced “Marco Esquandolas” in Antelope. Portions of this performance (Ya Mar, Crosseyed/Antelope, Waste, Hood, and ADITL) were released to the syndicated radio program The Album Network.
We’ll let you know as soon as the band officially announces Coral Sky.
