Phish played two consecutive nights at Keyspan Park. The 5.1 Surround Sound Phish: Live in Brooklyn DVD features the entire 6/17 concert (two sets of music) and bonus material including excerpts from soundcheck, backstage footage, and three songs from the June 18 performance. The CD soundtrackÃ¢â‚¬â€which will be sold separatelyÃ¢â‚¬â€is the entire first night.
The material on Live in Brooklyn ranges from Phish live classics such as “Suzy Greenberg,” “Mike’s Song” and “The Divided Sky” to rarities including “The Curtain With” and “Kung.” Like all of the band’s shows, the Keyspan Park concerts included some surprising interpretations of others’ songs.
The first set closes with a version of Edgar Winters Group’s “Frankenstein,” and midway through the second set, the group performs Eumir Deodato’s eerie “Also Sprach Zarathustra” theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The concert also includes then-new Phish songs, including “46 Days” and “Nothing.”
In a career spanning over 20 years, Phish became one of the most significant live music phenomena of all time. On the basis of word-of-mouth about their performancesÃ¢â‚¬â€with virtually no radio or video supportÃ¢â‚¬â€the band grew from playing club gigs along their native East Coast to drawing 100,000 music fans to remote corners of the country. At every turn, Phish managed to win over newcomers and casual fans as well as maintain the loyalty of their devotees with a singularly broad repertoire, virtuosity, and by making a unique event of each show.
