Live Phish Vol. 2 was recorded live on July 16, 1994 and was released on September 18, 2001 as part of the Live Phish Series. The show was performed on the side of a ski slope at the Sugarbush Resort in the town of North Fayston, located in Phish's home state of Vermont. It was the final concert of the band's highly successful 1994 summer tour. Earlier in the year, the band had released its highest selling album to date - Hoist - and the size of the Phish audience had expanded greatly by the summer. The Sugarbush concert, which included overnight camping on the ski slope under the stars, was slated as the grand finale of the tour.

The concert's setlist included the standard high-energy favorites from 1994 plus a few surprises, including a rare performance of Mike Gordon's "N02", which appears on the band's 1986 self-titled debut album known as The White Tape (the band would not perform the song for another five years). During "Catapult" there is banter between Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman after the line "there ain't gonna be no wedding" since Anastasio's wedding was set to occur soon. Also, during the middle of "Harpua", a giant comet could be seen overhead, prompting the band to launch into "Also sprach Zarathustra", better known as the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey and often simply referred to as "2001". Phish play Eumir Deodato's version of the song from the 1979 movie Being There with Peter Sellers. Deodato's version went platinum.

This release reached a peak of #93 on the Billboard 200 chart.
