ucpete Thanks guys - another great read. You make good points, but to me, the real pivot point was the 1-2 punch of tCTSotHH > FTW.

Yes, by Fall 2013 they had gotten back their improvisational sea legs. But with Vegas ‘14, they built on their improvisational recovery and began to push out into “Phish is doing new, inventive things.” They dropped an entire album on us with amazing production taboot. The Miami ‘14 run - check that Ghost and that Paug, for example - was them taking their new freedom for a spin. And when Trey went into the basement to do right by Jerry, he re-emerged with a widened repertoire on his guitar, refined chops, and was ready to truly move Phish from beyond a band looking to regain its form, to a band looking to evolve further. And we all know how Summer ‘15 played out, and what’s come since... 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.
