|Originally Performed By||Terence Blanchard|
|Original Album||Mo' Better Blues Soundtrack (1990)|
“Mo’ Better Blues” is a song from the Spike Lee joint of the same name (and written by Spike’s father). The song, such as it is, is essentially an 8 bar theme, though a catchy one, repeated over and over. Phish toyed with the song on three separate occasions, all during the intro to “David Bowie.” On 9/22/90 and 11/26/90, they performed two “verses” (i.e. 16 bars) of the song, and on 10/6/90 they settled for one go-around.

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.
