This post has nothing to do with Gone With the Wind or the South’s shameful history of chattel slavery. Instead, it’s your chance to sink your ears into “one of the most sublime transitions Phish has ever pulled off,” the set-opening Story of the Ghost > Slave to the Traffic Light from Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheater, July 4, 1999. Go on, click it. You won’t regret it. Trust me. I was there.
Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro just released this soundboard recording during his latest “From the Archives” broadcast, which I highly recommend downloading in its entirety — every track is a gem. It also made me dig through my own archives for some of the earliest digital photos in my collection. One point three megapixels!
