When a jam occurs off a cover, they tend to seperate the tracks because of royalties. The longer the track the more they have to pay so they offset that by making it a seperate track and calling it "jam". They can only do this when the jam has veered enough away from the recognizable melody and structure of the song.I know it. That's why I said "no matter what the reason."
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.
