Phish Halloween 96′

With all the excitement brewing over the upcoming Halloween Phish festival, let’s take a look back to see why Halloween is such a special day in Phish lore. For the 1996 celebration, as has become tradition, Phish sandwiched a ‘muscial costume’ set (a full album covered front to back) in between 2 full-length original sets. That year, the band took on The Talking Heads classic album ‘Remain in Light’. This show is just a monster – the band brings out part of the Giant Country Horns for the 2nd and 3rd sets and, by the time the night ends, bust out YEM, DWD, Reba, Forbin’s/Mockingbird, Brother, 2001, Simple, and a fitting Frankenstein encore. Without further ado, enjoy!
