New Phish Live Album: The Baker's Dozen

Postby hosemasterflex » Thu Dec 13, 2018 10:25 pm

I know we've got threads for the Baker's Dozen, for its individual shows. Maybe we even have a thread for roll call, or a thread for the run in general ... but I don't believe we have a thread to discuss the live album release.

I've ordered Santa'mazon to bring me one, vinyl edition ... and I've been listening to it ahead of time on Tidal, and I gotta wonder what other fans think.

Huge jammed out versions, strange selection of songs, and only the third (fourth? including Colorado) live release that isn't a complete show or a whole run of shows.

What do youz think of the new Phish live album? Do you like the selections? Track running order? The mix? Performances? What are your highlights?

I bought this when it was released, based on your post of the price only being $75. I listened to all the tracks before I purchased it and figured it was worth it at that price. I listened to Roggae, Simple, Chalk Dust Torture and Ghost the weekend it arrived but that's it so far. Was really bummed it didn't include Lawn Man but, that would have taken up 2 sides so I understand.

Most of the songs don't do it for me but it's real easy to jump ahead on the vinyl and get to the good parts. Honestly thought they could have taken the Frank Zappa 'Guitar/Shut Up and Play Your Guitar' approach and cut out the actual song portions and just start up right when they get into the jam. It would have allowed for more space to work with, in some cases, and would have been a fresher approach to a live compilation. I'm still not sure why they chose to use 13 tracks if they didn't plan on taking 1 track from each show either.
