As if we weren’t already pumped for Phish to hit the stage at Chicago’s Toyota Park on Friday for the Summer Tour opener, our friends at YEMblog have put the best recordings your ears have heard of some legendary moments in the band’s history into public circulation. Last June, Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro hosted two From The Archives broadcasts for Radio Bonnaroo. While a few intrepid fans recorded the stream, the Pre-FM source files have yet to make its way into mass circulation…until today.
This afternoon you’ll finally get to hear gems such as the famed Radio City Ghost, After Midnight from Big Cypress and the St. Louis ’94 Tweezer the way they were meant to be heard. These files are the real deal and while info on source is limited to “Pre-FM”, rest assured this is the definitive recording of the Bonnaroo FTA shows. Today, YEMblog has posted links to file sets featuring the V0 MP3s, AACs and FLACs of the June 12, 2009 From The Archives broadcast for your listening pleasure with a promise of the second broadcast to come later this week.
After listening to the Radio City Ghost six times we’re blown away by all the little details you pick up from this crisp recording as opposed to the other sources that have circulated in the past. The same can be said for the scorching After Midnight segment. It’s been quite some time since a recording of this nature has come down the pike, so be sure to download the files in your favorite format and clear your schedule for a bit because this is some “must-hear” goodness.[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Ghost.mp3]
