Trey Anastasio can't leave the country

by Yome NetSan 15. March 2011

During a funny banter in his TAB show in PittsburghTrey Anastasio has confirmed what we already supposed about why he and Phish won't come to Europe right now.

Responding to a loud fan during the acoustic set (right after Driver), he said :

"I'd LOVE to com back to Canada.
[...]
It might be a little bit trickier for me. I'm not supposed to go to Canada right now... Sorry !
[laughing]
Canada scares me.
I like to people. It's 'cause me, me and folk at the border don't like me very much, these days.
I'm sure saying that publicly is going to improve my chances. Don't tell anybody I said that, will you ? I LOVE the people at the border.
It's between me and the US..."

[mp3:2011/3/tab/Banter.mp3]

So Trey isn't allowed to leave the USA as a consequence of his arrest drug back in december 2006. Thing is that I can't find on the web the complete sentence to know when he will be allowed again to leave the country. If somebody find the info, please, let us know !

I can't believe...

An acoustic radio show in a promo CD (1998-11-03)

by Yome NetSan 25. September 2009

I wanted to keep this one for a latter post about my collection but the announcement yesterday that Phish will play a full acoustic set during Festival 8 made me dust off this CD earlier.

This is a 1 track promo CD edited by Electra Records showcasing an acoustic radio show Phish did on the 3rd November 1998 in Boulder, CO. The radio is KBCO and the show is part of the "Live in Studio C" serie.

The first link with Festival 8 is that it's an acoustic set. The songs played (Driver, Wading in the Velvet Sea, Possum and Roggae) are perfect for this outfit. It's also funny to see that they choose thoose songs so that each band member can sing : Trey on Driver, Page on Vevet Sea, Mike on Possum and Fish (with the 3 others) on Roggae.

The second link takes place during the interviews between songs. The show is recorded right after the 1998 Halloween show, where the band covered the Velvet Underground's album Loaded, and a show at the E Centre in West Valley City, where they covered Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon ! As they say during the interview, the surprise for the next day show in Denver is that they will not cover an entier album !

Several FM sources have been circulated since 1998 and I remember heavily listening to the show when I was a student in Valence. But db.etree.org doesn't list the Promo CD source. I got this CD quite easily on eBay, like most of my Promo CD I'll present latter, but I can't remember when. There was a time when I bought many many CD on eBay and didn't track what I received and when.

So here is this show in mp3 320kbs direct download or Flac Torrent.

11-03-98 KBCO (97.3 FM) Studios, Boulder, CO

02 Driver
03 Interview
