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 BBrods
I love this early '88 show. I think it's a Top 5 1988 show, and there are some really great performances on it. Nothing out of the ordinary setlist wise, but just over the top playing, and great flow. You can hear that the band practiced a lot in those couple weeks off between 2/26 and this show.
Set I opens with a great rendition (and only time ever) version of The Chicken. Really nice choice for an opener and played great. Funky Bitch and Sneakin' really well played and keep the energy going including a cool harmonica solo as well. A Train, YEM > Wilson was nice. I liked that the YEM was cut early and it segued really well into the dark '88 versions of Wilson. Bowie smokes too, and is a set highlight.
Set II brings out some longer songs--fluffhead, hood and antelope, all pretty standard but not below average. A great Curtis Loew with Bobby Brown on harmonica and some great humor in Antelope substituting lyrics for Moses Dewitt.
If you want a show to listen to from 1988, this should be on the list.
