Originally performed by Ella Fitzgerald and covered by a number of other jazz musicians, “Lullaby” is a song about a couple in love. While Phish’s version is decidedly less sultry (surprise!) than Ella’s, it is, nonetheless, interesting if only to show yet another color on Phish’s expansive musical palette. The lone public performance of “Lullaby” by Phish took place at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse on 3/28/92, although fans of the song may also want to seek out the rendition from the 3/19/92 soundcheck (which frankly is worth seeking out even if you’re not a “Lullaby” fan). "Lullaby" was also teased in the middle of the 3/13/92 "Creaturelope" (which, at the risk of repeating myself, frankly is worth seeking out even if you’re not a “Lullaby” fan).
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.
