Bloggy Goodness: Hampton/Winston-Salem Pre-Orders

A couple of weeks back we hipped you to the fact that Phish would be releasing a new seven-disc box set made up of their 1997 three-night run at Hampton, Virginia and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Well today, official word finally came from the band, who’ve detailed a variety of Phish song-referencing pre-order packages through Dry Goods for its December 6 release. Whether you choose the Black-Eyed Katy Bundle or just the standard CD box, all orders will receive a full 45-track MP3 download of Hampton Winston/Salem ’97 on the release date plus two previously unreleased Hampton/Winston-Salem related tracks from the Phish Archives. With the holiday season right around the corner, we’re pretty confident that this would make a great gift for the Phan in your family.

The fine folks at Phish Inc. have given us the Mike’s Groove from Hampton ’97 to sample (download):

Finally, while it looks like we are guilty as just about every music site out in there in posting the trailer for a supposed BlakRoc sequel, that turns out most likely will not be coming out, we can report that The Black Keys will indeed be releasing an album of their own later this year entitled El Camino. For their follow up to their critically acclaimed album Brothers, which netted the top spot in our Top 25 albums of the year, the blues-duo re-teams with Danger Mouse for an 11-song set that was recorded at Dan Auerbach’s new Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, TN. Earlier this week, the band released this video for the album’s first single Lonely Boy, which is drenched in ’60s psychedelic blues sounds. Check it out…
