In a review of one of Phish’s summer dates at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT, Rolling Stone said “[Phish] delivered some serious rock bang for its recessionary buck…with music that taps into every aspect of their quarter-century career together” while The Denver Post praised their return to Telluride, noting: “In what many consider the most anticipated show in recent years…Phish heartily rewarded its most lucky followers with a memorable mountain event that ranks on the very top shelf of the 27-year-old band’s trophy case.”

On the heels of its successful summer outing, Phish is giving away a special sampler entitled Live Bait. The first in a series, this volume of Live Bait will feature 10 tracks gleaned from the tour’s first leg, including older songs from the band’s vast catalog (“Alumni Blues,” “Letter to Jimmy Page”) as well fan favorites (“Tweezer,” “Backwards Down the Number Line”) and a new track, “Show of Life,” which debuted this summer. It includes a widget through which fans can post to their favorite networking sites and share with friends. Live Bait is available now at:

Phishhas released 15 studio albums as well as a series of 75 complete live concert CDs. Its series of 186 full concert downloads is currently available on livephish.com. Rolling Stone hailed the band’s latest studio album, Joy, as “a genuinely great album.”Recorded with Steve Lillywhite, who produced Phish’s Billy Breathes (1996) and albums by U2, Dave Matthews Band and the Rolling Stones, it was the first non-archival release on JEMP Records,an independent record label created by the band in 2005.
