[Welcome To Weekly Catch With Osiris! A weekly series brought to you from the team at Osiris. Each Wednesday we're going to bring you a historic Phish show from that week with some commentary. Our goal is to go beyond official releases and well-known shows to bring you some of the overlooked gems throughout Phish history. If you like what you find, we'd encourage you to check out the assortment of podcasts at the Osiris! This week's catch comes from Michael Shield of Across The Margin.]

Listen: Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA, 03/26/1993

Welcome to another installment of the Weekly Catch with Osiris where, yet again, a Phish show from the Spring of 1993 is highlighted. Truth be told we — and any Phish fan who loves the playful, balls-to-the-wall (still a saying?) nature of Phish in ‘93 — could talk about the grandeur and antics of the band during this period of time for days on end. But, personally, what I love specifically and most intensely about this era are the “Split Open and Melt” versions which were played. Each version is unique in its own right, driven, often sinister, and pointed and concise (relative to Phish of course!), in a way that toys with momentum and the beat which is at the heart of a song.


Page 1 of 1 is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
