yea that about sums it up. the high-water mark is soooo ridiculously high that I think we've come to have some unfair expectations, yet I can't help but sincerely *cringe* when tweezers (or ghost, mikes, etc) are cut off at the 12 min mark.Phish 3.0 seems to be standardizing many of the old improv workhorse songs and exploring the newer songs. 3.0 YEM's and Gin's seem to be fairly standardized too. I'm not saying they are bad, there have been some nice Type 1 jams in them, but the improvisational emphasis seems to have been moved into a different set of songs.
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 over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
