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.

The highlight jam of the first set naturally comes during a Stash with some real teeth. Mixed with the ferocious "Type I" jamming are a few forays into the unknown, whetting our appetites for a whole lot more to come later in the show (hint: it's the RLAA->BBFCM->RLAA sandwich).
2001 gets things going in the second set with a much more intense build-up before the drop into the song proper than typical and leads directly into this show's calling card. This is truly one of the best exploratory versions of Run Like an Antelope in the band's history. In a distinctly late '93/'94 manner, this jam ventures in a multitude of directions both before and after BBFCFM. Ranging from a bit of Eastern klezmer to brilliant "Hose" jamming, there's plenty of compelling music here to enjoy. Along with the exploratory movements, there is a Grade-A build to the peak and an extended Rye Rye Rocco section with a little reggae breakdown and a bass and drums section. By the way, this whole segment was released on Live Bait 8 so there's no excuse not to track this down even if you have scruples with AUD recordings.
Sparkle through YEM is played relatively straight except for the It's Ice jam. Although not as frisky as others from the tour (arguably the improvisational peak for the song), it is still a plus version that you'll be happy to hear. The set ends with the band juxtaposing BBFCFM with Amazing Grace to a rather humorous effect.
The bottom line is that this show features one the best segments of the tour and if the band is playing that well, you won't go wrong hearing the rest.
