Live Phish 04.04.98 is the third night of the four-night "Island Tour", recorded live at the Providence Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island, on April 4, 1998.

The short mini-run quickly became one of the most popular Phish performances of all time[citation needed], with the band mixing the funk of 1997 with the high-energy jams of the mid-1990s along with brand new compositions.

The first show in Rhode Island will always be remembered for its extended jams (even "Birds of a Feather" clocked in at 15 minutes). Highlights include a heavy, energetic 18-minute "Ghost" and one of the most celebrated versions of "Harry Hood" of the late 1990s. After a 12-minute "Brother", guitarist Trey Anastasio says the band will now play the "radio friendly" version, resulting in a humorous ten-second version of the song. Before the band played the next song, "Ghost", they inform the audience that the song is "radio un-friendly, because it's really long, and really slow" .

In addition to being a CD release, this concert is available as a download in FLAC and MP3 formats at
