Phish has officially announced the release of Phish – Live In Utica. Like the Alpine Valley release, it will come as two DVDs and two CDs.
From Phish FB:
The nearly three hours of music in this DVD/CD set was recorded with 64 channels of digital multi-track and mixed and mastered, appearing on the DVDs in 5.1 Dolby surround and full-resolution, uncompressed PCM stereo. The video was shot with 8 cameras (16:9 widescreen), recorded and post-edited in High Definition.
As many of you know, Utica is a 3.0 fan favorite because of the first set that carries the theme of Guyute–dubbing the show “Guyutica”. On October 20, 2010, the second set featured Tela and a massive Split Open and Melt sandwich containing Have Mercy and Piper. Utica was also the smallest venue played on the 2010 Fall Tour. To me, the jam in Bowie was the first time since Phish’s 2009 return that the song contained extended improvisation.
A couple over-shadowed highlights from the show would be the impressive Wolfman’s > Cities and the unusual Antelope to close set one.
The DVD set is available for pre-order now here, it will be released on May 17, while pre-order copies will be sent out around May 13. The price is $32.99.
