When discussing the Holy Grail of Phish shows stuck inside the band’s vault, the Hampton ’97 performances and Big Cypress are usually towards the top of most fans’ lists. On December 6, Phish fans will finally get to hear the Hampton ’97 performances in all their Fred Kevorkian-mastered soundboard glory when JEMP Records puts out Hampton / Winston Salem ’97. The wonderful kicker is that the band has attached the severely underrated November 23, 1997 show to this seven-CD set that will also include never-before-heard soundchecks.


We came across this description on the Alternative Distribution Alliance website

The Hampton/Winston-Salem 97(11/21-23)shows featured Phish at an peak of execution and flow. Throughout the shows, Phish seized most every opportunity to lift and expand. Paul Languedoc’s stereo mix, mastered by Fred Kevorkian, funnels the energy of these special shows nearly 15 years later. Hampton/Winston-Salem 97 contains all the music played over these 3 shows for a total of 45 songs – over 8 hours of music – including never-before-heard material from soundchecks at both venues. The 7-CD box set, a must-own collection for any Phish fan.

Here’s hoping we get some gems from the ’95 and ’96 Hampton Phish shows as part of a pre-release bonus once the band officially announces this release. Hampton/Winston-Salem 97 will retail for $39.98.
