Phish has announced that The Siket Disc will be released on vinyl for the first time on Friday, Dec. 18. It is currently available for pre-order.
Originally released in 1999, The Siket Disc contains nine tracks of almost entirely instrumental music recorded during The Story of the Ghost sessions in 1997. The improvisational music was recorded by engineer John Siket and compiled by Phish keyboardist Page McConnell.
From the Facebook announcement:
Highlighting the band’s millennial, sometimes-ambient explorations of the time, The Siket Disc yielded a few songs that have since been incorporated into live shows including “What’s The Use?”, “My Left Toe”, “The Happy Whip and Dung Song”, and even the vocoder soundscape of “Quadrophonic Toppling”.
The album was mastered for vinyl from the Digital Audio Tape flat master and pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl. Each order includes a free MP3 download of the album that was transferred from vinyl. T-shirt bundles are also available for pre-order.
