This Rastafarian rendition of “Fire on the Mountain” is known to have occurred only twice in Phish history – on 3/4/85 and 4/19/85 – each time with members of Lamb’s Bread. With lyrics that parody Hunter’s original words providing an obvious thematic spin, this tune has gone down in Phish history as one of the band’s most irreverent (but least heard) covers.
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.
