Deviations In Show Notes

In the setlists at, the show notes that appear beneath each setlist only describe characteristics of a show that deviate from the norm. For example, it is not mentioned in any of the setlist notes that "Carolina" or "Hello My Baby" was performed a cappella, because these songs are always performed that way. Similarly, we never mention that a show's "vibe" was "amazing," because this is often always the case. It also also never noted when versions of "Foreplay/Longtime" are performed acoustic, because almost all versions of this song have been performed in that manner. Instead, important characteristics of a performance, including a specific song's performance, are noted. For example, the Great Woods 1999 show notes mention that the song "Foreplay/Longtime" was played electric at the show. Also, unless otherwise mentioned in the show notes, every version of "Guelah Papyrus" contains "The Asse Festival;" every version of "Punch You in the Eye" contains "The Landlady;" and every "Alumni Blues" contains "Letter to Jimmy Page." To list these songs as, for instance, "Guelah Papyrus" -> "The Asse Festival" -> "Guelah Papyrus" in every single performance in the setlists file is redundant. More detailed information regarding such songs is contained for each song in the song histories on 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.
