I was introduced to their music in 1992 by a cardiac surgeon that I worked with. He brought in a couple of CDs and would listen to them while doing surgery. I liked the musical compositions but thought the lyrics and vocal abilities left a lot to be desired.
I moved to the Burlington, Vermont area a number of years ago. Phish was the local jam band. They were sure great to listen too!
I just love that their concert appearances are being released so we can listen to them again and again.
