Phish has quoted this Lennon/McCartney sweetness in some rollicking places, such as “Possum” (5/13/90), “Tweezer” (12/1/94 and 8/6/96), “Taste” (dead-on at 10/27/96, and in reminiscent soloing in many ‘96-97 versions), and “Weekapaug Groove” (12/18/99) – songs about getting run over, frozen, starved, and left out. While never played in full, they gave it more than a measure or two of teases during 11/23/85, within an extended jam of “Whipping Post,” a raging roar for redemption in the midst of Mike’s “epiphany” show. But none of these six appearances were out of place: Each signaled a moment (and in a show) where the intense became soothing and the explosive became uniting, as if to ask (as the original did), “Isn’t it good?”
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.
