Phish Hoist on 180g 2LP + Download
Available for the First Time on Vinyl!
Phish is known for its musical improvisation, extended jam sessions, exploration of music among diverse genres, and its ardently loyal fans. Formed at the University of Vermont in 1983, the band's four founding members - Trey Anastasio (guitars, lead vocals), Mike Gordon (bass, vocals), Jon Fishman (drums, vocals), and Page McConnell (keyboards, vocals) - performed together for over 20 years before disbanding in August 2004 and subsequently reuniting in March 2009.
Originally issued in 1994, Hoist is the band's fifth official studio effort. Produced by Paul Fox (XTC, 10,000 Maniacs, The Wallflowers) and recorded at American Recording Co. in Woodland Hills, CA, the Elektra Records release was the band's first album recorded entirely outside of the Northeast and the first to receive a strong marketing push from the label. It resulted in a Top 40 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart and subsequent Gold certification.
One of Phish's more stripped down and concise studio records, Hoist yielded three signature singles with "Down with Disease," "Sample in a Jar" and "Julius" and includes famous guest appearances by Alison Krauss and Béla Fleck.
