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.

but thrill is gone and rock me went on way, way too long. Aimless. I love me some blues - SRV would make an ideal guest if he wasn't, you know, dead - but the BB thing was overkill. It reminded me of the mini-acoustic sets. Great for a mid-set change of pace and then (like 12/28/98 and the Ball) they need to bust out something juicy to bring things back up.
Same deal in set II with an inspired start. 15 min Halleys>Hood to open? Yes please!! Then, the Twist gets really dark, counterpoint to the joyous disease. And at the time, we didn't know this kind of jamming would be the 2003 hallmark so it was exciting to hear new sounds, so different from 2000. Phish is back and going new places!!
All of these Dreams and Waves were a good bridge to a potentially smoking ending (maybe an exclamation point like Timber>Bowie?) but sample/chalkdust/farmhouse wasn't enough to seal the deal.
Get the big jams, give BB a listen, but pass on the rest.
