Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by Blastoplast
Fishman did a stage dive at this show after all! All out stage dive! He came up from the audience with a ripped dress that he fixed with duct tape. That's what Fishman was talking about after Love You with his dress in it's final days. It was awesome! Good fun!
...and the pineapple thing was funny. That was just some random people in the audience who began to make their way to the front of the relatively small theater with their dancing pineapples, and they gave them to Fishman when he came out for his tune. Fun stage banter and lots of goofing around. I love that stuff!
But...back to the music...this was my first show...and I was so naive about so many things, but it was still enough to forever change my outlook on music.
While this was my first show and holds some special memories for me as a result, I am not so deluded that I can't recognize this for what it is. It's kind of standard, but I would argue it's standard in an era of Phish that was ridiculously tight, humorous, silly, rockin'!, and generally full of exuberance. So, in that context, it's just good music. Worth listening to just as a good recording of Phish on a random night in Michigan in 1992. Everything is solid, everything is mostly regular.
So...check Reba...it's just another good version of a great song.
Think of it like a jazz tune...you can listen to Sonny Rollins play the same tune ten times, and generally it would be similar, in a way...but the details...the mood...the phrases...that's what defines the good and bad solo on any given tune. This is simply a good Reba. An excellent Reba! Probably not number one on anybody's list, but check it out. Good music to listen to. After all, you can't only listen to your favorite Reba.
Also the Tweezer...again standard...but it has that thing in it that makes it worth checking out. Good jam...tight...focused...and then ends. Nice!
YEM...good. Unique enough in ways that it is also worth checking out.
Gordon has fun with 'I Walk the Line.'
So...again...standard...regular in many ways...but so beautiful in many others. It's Phish in 1992, a year I consider a building block...or better yet, a foundation...upon which the following years could rely on as the improvisations became more and more experimental.
