Review

This double-disc firestorm was the first official live release from Vermont's favorite jam band, and it is both a roaring celebration of and, in many ways, a fitting conclusion to Phish's first decade of genre-bending, head-popping rock. Recorded in 1994, A Live One finds Phish wringing everything they can out of every song (four clock in at more than 10 minutes, another at more than 20, and a sixth, "Tweezer," at more than 30), whipping themselves (and the audience) into a frenzy with a high-octane attack long on instrumental pyrotechnics and short on subtlety. By 1996 they had taken this no-holds-barred approach as far as they could, and they would begin to temper their frenetic energy with a mellower, airier, and funkier approach. But this collection remains a vital snapshot of the band at its initial peak, a time when no studio could have hoped to capture the densely packed Phish experience. --Marc GreilsamerThe Grateful Dead analogies may apply to legions of Phish-head devotees, but musically this double-live set reveals a band with the fluency of early Allman Brothers minus their focus and muscularity. A neat blend of hippie whimsy ("Gumbo") and extended jams ("Stash," "You Enjoy Myself") that aren't as tedious as you'd guess. --Jeff Bateman
