February 26, 2009 5:02 PM ET

Fresh off the news that veteran jam institution Phish will be reuniting for a series of summer dates, Rhino is set to release the seven-DVD Phish box set, The Clifford Ball. The collection covers the two-day concert held in upstate New York in 1996, the first of seven huge outdoor music festivals thrown by the band. The DVDs feature over nine hours of performance covering all three sets, as well as a slew of bonus jamming. In its latest issue, Rolling Stone's Kevin O'Donnell writes, "This is the most comprehensive DVD the jam kings have released yet."

Get a sneak peek of one of the seven DVDs above. Our video of "Fluffhead" features the band playing the jaunty number from 1988's Junta, complete with three-part harmonies, plenty of blacklights and solos galore.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
