Soon after forming the band, Phish (also known as The White Tape) was created from 4-track recordings which the band and band members mixed, dubbed and circulated as a demo on cassette in 1986.
The album consists of an assortment of 4-track recordings from 1984-1985 including four songs recorded by all the existing members of Phish as a band: "Alumni Blues," "AC/DC Bag," "Slave To The Traffic Light" and "Dog Gone Dog (a/k/a Dog Log)." The balance was recorded separately by the band members and blended together from 4-track cassettes to create the album as we know it. The album was widely circulated among Phish fans for more than a decade before being officially released in 1998.Trey has said The White Tape exemplifies, perhaps more than any other studio effort, the band's unbridled creative freedom of the day.
In 1998, The White Tape was re-mastered from the 2-track cassette master. The original art for the cassette demo was created by Trey himself and was updated for release by artist Jim Pollock.
