Live Phish 04.05.98 is the final night of the four-night "Island Tour", recorded live at the Providence Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island, on April 5, 1998.

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

Highlights include a 16-minute "Down with Disease", as well as a funky second set that features a slow, funked out version of "Cavern" that evolves out of a jam developed in "Possum". The band expands on "Cavern" well into the 13-minute mark, a song that is usually about four minutes long in concert.

This would be the last Phish concert until their return to Europe in July.

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