Fallout from the Phil Zone is a double compilation album of live recordings by the Grateful Dead handpicked by the band's bassist Phil Lesh. It contains the first Grateful Dead CD releases of "In the Midnight Hour" (clocking in at over 30 minutes) and Bob Dylan's "Visions of Johanna". The album is named for the so-called "Phil Zone", an area directly in front of the bass amps onstage. A small group of fans would stand there every concert, feeling the vibrations of Lesh's bass.
