The Cat Stevens ballad “Sad Lisa” was the first of three cover-song collaborations with guest stars that closed Phish’s set on the second day of the 1998 Bridge School benefit. Following “Brian and Robert,” Sarah McLachlan joined the band to perform this duet with Trey. Following "Sad Lisa" Neil Young joined Phish and McLachlan for Ian Tyson’s “Four Strong Winds” and Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released.” Despite some deft and delicate acoustic playing by Trey and Page in this version, “Sad Lisa” has not resurfaced in Phish’s repertoire.Trey Anastasio and Sarah McLachlan, “Sad Lisa” - 10/18/98, Mountain View, CA

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.
