PHISH Junta 3LP(Fluffhead Black/White Swirl Vinyl)

Junta 3LP(Fluffhead Black/White Swirl Vinyl)

  • Color: Black/White Swirl
Junta (pronounced Joon-tah) is Phish's first official studio album, recorded at Euphoria Sound Studios in Revere Massachusetts in 1987 and 1988 on 16-track 2'' tape and was mixed to 1/4'' stereo reels.  In addition to writing and performing all the music, the band produced the album themselves - gathering around Engineer Gordon Hookailo's console to do group fades since the studio lacked mix automation.  It was a ground-breaking effort in terms of musical ambition and every song on the album is still performed by the band live.  Junta was originally self-released on cassette tape in May 1989 with packaging created by the band.  The album was re-mastered and re-released as a double CD (and cassette) in October 1992 on Elektra with art by Jim Pollock.  The release was certified Gold but was never heard on vinyl until a special Record Store Day edition in 2012.  The vinyl release was created from the original stereo master reels with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.
