Phish The Siket Disc on Limited Edition 180g LP
Available on Vinyl for the Very First Time!
In December 2015, Phish will release The Siket Disc on vinyl for the first time. Originally self-released on CD in June 1999 and introduced to retail by Elektra in November 2000, The Siket Disc contains 35-minutes of almost entirely instrumental, live-in-the-studio improvisation recorded by its namesake, engineer John Siket.
The music was culled by Phish keyboardist Page McConnell from The Story of the Ghost sessions that took place in 1997 at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, New York. Highlighting the band's millennial sometimes-ambient explorations of the time, The Siket Disc yielded a few songs that have since been incorporated into live shows including "What's The Use?," "My Left Toe," "The Happy Whip and Dung Song," and even the vocoder soundscape of "Quadrophonic Toppling."
The 9-track album was recorded and mixed by Siket, compiled/edited by McConnell, and mastered for vinyl from the digital audio tape flat master by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto limited edition 180-gram audiophile vinyl and includes an accompanying MP3 download of the album transferred from vinyl.
