Phish - Rift
original release by Elektra, 1993 - this pressing by Jemp Records, 2015

I gotta admit, I never really listened to this band because I probably harbor negative stereotypes based on some of their fans I encountered back in college. I checked out a couple of those songs you posted and they're not bad at all. Probably something I need to give a proper listen to at some point. Love that album cover.

I have to agree about some of the fans. I try to see these guys play whenever I can, and some of the people in the scene are clearly only there for the drugs and a party, yet claim to be die-hard enthusiasts. The majority of fans are good, decent people, maybe a little offbeat or eccentric, but that's totally okay because we all have our quirks, but some are just total burnouts without a clue.

I saw the same type of people show up in the Dead scene, too, especially after In The Dark came out and a bunch of frat boy types started coming around. They had no sense of the history of the scene, or how to behave accordingly.

Anytime I go to a show these days, whether it be Phish or Dead & Co., or whatever, I try to stay far away from those types. They can usually be spotted easily, because they're either hanging around wherever the nitrous tanks are at, or they're dumb enough to be wandering around openly asking strangers for drugs.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Drugged out people that don't really care about the music at all, just looking for an excuse to get completely high or wasted or whatever. I think with every genre of music you get a certain type of people that show up for reasons other than the music. Like people that go to punk, hardcore, or metal shows because they want to "mosh" and start fights with people instead of watch the band.

Jethro Tull - Heavy Horses (40th Anniversary Steven Wilson Remix)
originally released by Chrysalis Records, 1978 - this pressing by Chrysalis / Parlophone, 2018



Beautifully done anniversary pressing of this classic Tull album. Steven Wilson restrains himself on the remix, and it sounds fantastic. Lots of dynamics compared to the original, and to my ears a big improvement on the old mix.

Never got much into Tull, but I had a beat up copy of Thick as a Brick when I was younger. What is your favorite Tull album out of curiosity?

SW does some interesting remixes. I recently got his Tears For Fears and Yes remix box through HD Tracks. He seems to add more space between the instruments over the original mixes. Still working through the Yes stuff but these are an interesting listen, especially over headphones.
