We just came across a gem that’s New-To-YouTube that seemed too good to be true – 30 marvelous pro-shot minutes of Phish performing the best version of Scents and Subtle Sounds yet. The clip was filmed at Camden’s then-named Tweeter Center on July 30th, 2003 and the Scents included within took place towards the beginning of the first set.
When we stumbled on this clip we had a hard time believing it was indeed the genuine article as there’s no other footage from that show on YouTube. After searching the internet for photos from that night (Trey changing outfits at setbreak threw us for a loop) and comparing it to a recording we can indeed confirm this video is the real deal. It was apparently sourced from the multi-cam lawn feed that was shown on the big screens at the venue that night.
Just one show after the epic Burgettstown performance that included a slew of bust outs and an unforgettable Harpua, Phish visited Camden for a two-night run on July 30th and 31st. The band came out of the gates hot with a rare-at-the-time My Friend, My Friend and their first take on Lonesome Cowboy Bill by Velvet Underground since Halloween ’98. Then, the quartet lit into a 30-minute Scents and Subtle Sounds that stands as an example of why 2003 shouldn’t be brushed off as a bad year in Phish history. So clear your schedule and check this shit out…
Let’s hope more from this show surfaces soon!
