Hidden Track Giveaway: Phish Ventura Big Kahuna Bundle + Exclusive Audio Of Makisupa Policeman From Phish Ventura

The next Phish live archival release, Ventura, features two shows the quartet played at the Ventura County Fairgrounds in Ventura, California on July 30, 1997 and July 20, 1998. Though only a year separated the two shows, the band had a completely different sound at each appearance and delivered two outstanding performances. This audio-only release provides official recordings of two shows for which excellent audience recordings have never surfaced due to in part to the wind at the venue.

The box set is available for pre-order ahead of its June 18 release date from Dry Goods and those who purchase will receive a 10-track sampling of the band’s March 21st, 1993 show at Ventura Theatre called “BuenaVentura.” In addition to the 6-cd box set, pre-order options include bundles which feature Ventura koozies, t-shirts and posters.

As part of our Everybody Wins When We Plug Something And In Return They Offer Us Free Shit To Give Away program, we’ve got three copies of the complete Phish “Ventura” box set to giveaway PLUS a Big Kahuna Bundle which contains  the all new 6-CD “Ventura” box set, Little Stevie Water Ski T on Purple and your choice of Koozie®.

You can enter a second time by following us and then tweeting the year of your favorite Phish Summer Tour at us. Let us know by including both “@hidden_track” AND “#phventura″ in your tweet.

    Summer 97 for me, completely gets over looked by Fall 97. Summer 97 was a warm up funk party for what would come that following Fall.

    Runner up: Summer 94. GAMEHENDGE!

    Summer ’09. I was late to get into Phish, and never thought I would be able to see them. The reunion was a dream come true.

    FIrst live show! PNC Arts Center in NJ. They launched into Chalkdust and I was hooked. Saw them 3 times that summer and have seen’em at 30 times since. Damn fine time.

    I saw 10 shows apiece in 99 and 00, but seeing 6.17.11 in my hometown and getting my first Forbin’s / Mockingbird + Icculus (!) was more than I ever expected. They even talked about my neighborhood, NoDa! So, even though I only saw that one show in 2011, it’ll always be my favorite summer tour.

    I’m kind of a noob, so I’ll say Summer ’11. If for no other reason than that magical Memorial Day Weekend at Bethel Woods!
