Phish: "A Picture Of Nectar" on vinyl 09/16

Phish: A Picture Of Nectar

After the limited release at The Freezer shop at the shows on Randall’s Island (June 11 & 12) Phish will release their third studio album A Picture Of Nectar on vinyl to the general public on September 16th. Comes with a MP3 download culled from the vinyl master:

On September 16th, Phish will release A Picture Of Nectar, the band’s third full-length studio album, as a Limited Edition Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set at Phish Dry Goods and stores across the country. The LE Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set is limited to 7,500 individually numbered copies. To pre-order from Phish Dry Goods. Bundles with t-shirts are also available.

A Picture Of Nectar was recorded in 1991 at White Crow Studios in Burlington, Vermont on 24-track 2? tape and mixed to 1/2? stereo reels. This was the band’s major label debut and the start of a long relationship with Elektra. It was also their tribute to Nectar Rorris, owner of Nectar’s in Burlington, where Phish played many multiple night stands in the 1980?s that in their words “taught us how to play.”

The material displayed the growing extent and diversity of Phish’s talents honed throughout eight years of rehearsals and hundreds of live shows. Twenty two years later, nearly every song on A Picture Of Nectar is still in live rotation today.

A Picture Of Nectar was mastered by Bob Ludwig and released by Elektra February 18, 1992 on CD and cassette. The album went on to be certified Gold. In 2014, Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering cut the lacquers from the original stereo master reels for the vinyl edition. Each LP is pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the album (transferred from the vinyl master).
