[1] Simple tease.
[2] “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas.”
[3] Norwegian Wood jam.
[4] Debut of “Hood” response chant.

Notes: Note the “This is Red Rocks, This is the Edge” quote from Trey during the break in Rift. The quote was a reference both to U2’s Live: Under a Blood Red Sky album and Trey’s similar remarks on the Junta-released version of Icculus. Suzy included a Simple tease. The phrase “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas” during Antelope in reference to a fan’s quote in a newspaper article on the disturbance in Morrison the day before. Tweezer included a Norwegian Wood jam. Harry Hood featured the debut of the “Hood” response chant, initiated by Phish.netters and advertised on flyers handed out at the Red Rocks shows. Among other ideas, the flyers encouraged fans to shout: “Hood” after the band sings “Harry.” It began to rain in the second set; the band responded with Purple Rain, and Chris Kuroda showed the stage in purple lights. The performance of Simple from this gig appears on the Carved in Stone CD benefiting The Rocks Fund, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Remastered Phish Harpua Champagne Supernova 12.29.96 Philly Spectrum

January 10th, 2012 No comments

This was one of the first shows that really got me into Phish. I found the video clip on youtube and resynced the audio with a better source off of etree. There may be a few sync glitches as the original video has some stutters. I also cleaned up the video a little and cropped the edges. Features Tom Marshall as the Uber Demon singing Champagne Supernova. Enjoy!
