This film follows the band, Phish, through a year of its life; from the Great Went concert in Limestone, ME in August 1997 through the subsequent touring in the next year, leading up to August 1998. The director, Todd Phillips, said, "We weren't looking to make 'Tie-Dyed'; I wanted to concentrate on the music." Written by

Well if you love Phish you really should get this DVD, but you knew that! It has plenty of full length extras on it (PYITE, BBFCFM) and is quite hilarious at times. The complaints that I hear about this movie are sound, however. I didn't like the interviews with the fans, and the songs ARE clipped for time. I don't know why they bothered clipping the songs to make this movie run a lean 84 minutes, in most cases they should have just let them play and made the movie 2+ hours. Everybody is going to have a list of songs that they wish had been included, so I'm not going to complain about certain songs that I believe should definitely be in any Phish movie but were left out. I certainly love this movie and will watch it a hundred times if this first week is any indication of things to come.
This thing is worth buying for the killer NYE and Great Went footage alone.
