Hippie Motherlode!

Wow.. In looking for a downloadable copy of Today in Phish History (4/6/92, one of my favorite tapes of all time), I came across a link from Phish.net that I had never come across before: the Phish Downloads Spreadsheet.

Back in the olden days when I used to tape shows and trade tapes over listservs, I used to peruse people’s tape lists and see if they had some nugget I was looking for. Then things began going more and more digital, and then the band began selling their own shows on CD (and now digitally literally hours after the show has finished), and taping has sort of become a thing of the past. Listening, however, is still here and now, and now that I’ve found this ridiculous treasure trove of memories, I can dig in to some juicy tidbits that left when I gave away all my analog tapes in 2006.
