I am shocked that my personal favorite JOTY -- the Gorge SOAMelt -- did not make the top 16!I had to leave the pit during that jam because I was at serious risk of peeing my pants. But at least I heard the conclusion from the mid-hill portapotties.
This was a fantastic year for Melts. The MSG Melt would also likely make my top 5 JOTYs. Both of them are clearly the #1 and #2 Melts of all time, IMHO. To each his own!
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
