|Originally Performed By||The Who|
|Original Album||Quadrophenia (1973)|
"Sea and Sand" is the inevitable downer the Quadrophenia narrator experiences after the maniacal high of “5:15.” While Jimmy took the train to experience a fantasy love, his reality is in the form of a bitter rejection. This song has been played three times including its Halloween ‘95 debut, and is performed much differently than The Who once did; to the delight of Phish fans everywhere, Page plays the song solo on piano. For the other inspiring versions, seek out 12/31/95 (segues beautifully out of “Weekapaug”) and 7/20/98, which was literally played by the sea and sand at Ventura.

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.
