How Are Deviations Treated In The Setlists?
In the setlists at Phish.net, the show notes only reference characteristics of a show that deviate from the norm. For example, it is not mentioned in any of the notes that "Carolina" or "Hello My Baby" was performed a cappella, because these songs are always performed that way. Similarly, it is not noted when versions of "Foreplay/Longtime" are performed acoustic, because almost all versions of this song have been performed in that manner. Instead, the Great Woods 1999 show notes mention that the song was then played electric. Similarly, unless otherwise mentioned in the show notes, every version of "Guelah Papyrus" contains "The Asse Festival," "Punch You in the Eye" contains "The Landlady," and "Alumni Blues" contains "Letter to Jimmy Page." To list these songs as, for instance, "Guelah Papyrus" -> "The Asse Festival" -> "Guelah Papyrus" is redundant. Far more detailed information regarding such songs is contained for each song in the song histories on Phish.Net.
