Phish have shared a new collection of live tracks as Live Bait Vol. 13, available for download now over at LivePhish. The appropriately numbered offering is labeled as a Baker’s Dozen Edition, with most of the tracks coming from past shows at Madison Square Garden.
The volume kicks off with “The Wedge” from the 7/20/14 show at FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago, where Phish will open up their tour tomorrow night, July 14 (the venue is now known as Huntington Bank Pavilion). All but one other track on the new Live Bait come from shows at MSG, mostly taken from past New Year’s Eve runs, including a final track that comes from the 12/31/15 “hourglass” transition into the New Year with “No Men in No Man’s Land”> “Auld Lang Syne”> “Blaze On.” There are also a few ’90s throwbacks, including a “Run Like an Antelope” from 7/18/93 in Pittsburgh and a “Tweezer” from MSG on 12/30/94.
The selections on Live Bait Vol. 13 were recorded by Paul Languedoc, Jon Altschiller and Timothy Powell. Download the full collection here.
