Rift comes to vinyl at the tenth Phish festival Magnaball - (August 21-23, 2015 @ Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, NY:
The JEMP Records Store will return to Magnaball and will feature a vast array of vinyl releases from the band’s catalog from years past including repressings of The White Tape, Junta, Lawn Boy and A Picture of Nectar and side project pressings. Original pressings of Phish’s first live box set, New Year’s Eve 1995, will also be available. The store will be equipped with vinyl listening stations and copies to pick up, open, read, feel and smell (they mostly smell waxy). In addition (and the part we’re most excited for), the JEMP Records Store will also feature an exclusive, brand new Phish vinyl release. Yep, that’s right. Phish’s 1993 album Rift will be available for the first time on vinyl at Magnaball. The festival version will be pressed on 180-gram water-blue vinyl and is packaged with a Limited Edition screen print (a Rift continuation) by David Welker. The remainder of the limited run of “Rift” will be made available at Phish Dry Goods and in Stores (this won’t be on blue vinyl, however) in the middle of September.
