Welcome to Mystery Jam Tuesday here at Phish.net. Apologies for the delay, but we're making it up to you with four meaty minutes of Mystery Jam goodness. As usual, we will be playing for an MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Friday Answer: Congrats to docgonzo1972 for correctly guessing the 6/20/04 "Twist." The Mystery Jam hopes to return to a more regular schedule on Monday...

Video of the Week: Rift "Fast" Debut 1992-03-06

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 18 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f7ef4bb, posted in the Video category



Another great video from Telekinetica debuting here on Phish.net.

This Portsmouth, NH show starts off with this first "fast" Rift ever. As our Rift history states: It is a "perfect example of how some songs take years to develop. In fact, nearly five years elapsed between the time that pieces of “Rift” first appeared and when the song was finished and finally unveiled on 1992-03-06." A very standard '92 first set included such songs as It's Ice and the debut of Maze. Bowie cleaned up the set with a "Jeopardy!" tease and a Will the Circle Be Unbroken? signal. It also included two Get Back signals, Star Trek, Aw Fuck!, Up Up and Away, Tritone Down, and Me and My Arrow signals, two Complete Stop signals, and It Don't Mean A Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing.. oh and Simpson signals. Phew.

Video of the Week: 1993-12-29

Posted 4 years ago by lumpblockclod - 13 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f751e4a, posted in the Video category



This week’s video is from New Haven’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum on 12/29/93. The 1993 New Year’s run is memorable for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the shows were outstanding, particularly the 30th and 31st. Nearly as remarkable was the aquarium stage set-up that is still recalled fondly by fans almost twenty years later, but those are the obvious points. It’s some of the less obvious parts that make this video particularly interesting.

Lyrics Index Online

Posted 4 years ago by Lemuria - 6 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f6e581f

Can't recall which three Phish songs mention fish? Want to name a pet with their lyrics without having yet another cat named Tela? Want to know the name of a song but can only remember that it mentions Paris or Aquitana? Want to know how many tools or toys appear in Phish lyrics? Want to find out about Elihu but can’t find the song history because you don’t know the title of that song? Now, you can!

Originally published in the second edition of The Phish Companion, the Lyrics Index is now completely revised, updated, and connected from the site's navigation menu (under Music). This is a selective topical index of over 4,000 song references for more than 1,750 words and phrases that appear in the lyrics of more than 225 Phish originals, all organized in 45 topical categories.

The growth of the index, including both corrections and additional (post-TPC2) songs, is due in large part to the assistance of forum regulars Axilla_Part_2_Not_Part_1, BBFCFNJ, forbin1, karmapolice, johnnyd, phan83, ToxicPastePurpleWaste, and WGphan92. Thank you for your help!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 92

Posted 4 years ago by lumpblockclod - 23 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f6fca37, posted in the Audio category (657 listens)

Welcome to the last Mystery Jam of March here at Phish.net. Why might that be significant? Well, as you may or may not know, March is International Vacuum Month (ok, fine, those buzzkills at the Vacuum Dealers Trade Association have changed it to "International Spring Cleaning Month," but they kinda suck). Purists among us know March is the month of the vacuum. As usual, we will be playing for an MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Tuesday Hint: Sigh. No hint needed this week.

Wednesday Answer: Congratulations to NickSalv for -- god only knows how -- getting the 3/31/92 "Love You." The Blog will be back next week with another Mystery Jam.

Bridgeport kids "master class" performance

Posted 4 years ago by jackl - 5 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f6f42f9, posted in the Video category



As a director of the Mockingbird Foundation, there are few things in life that make me happier than receiving a video like this and "thank you" letter from one of our grantees:

"​On behalf of the Connecticut Percussive Arts Society, please accept our deepest appreciation for the support from the Mockingbird Foundation for the Student-to-Student program. I am attaching a video that features some of the students, as well as performances from Chapter Day -- a day of Master Classes that brings professional musicians from all corners of the world to Bridgeport. The children attend the classes, the performances, and some of the children even get to perform with the pro's. It's a great day.

Video of the Week: 1994-11-22

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 10 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f6bef0e, posted in the Video category



This is a whopper folks! Be sure to watch it!

For the second week in a row, we are pleased to have a YouTube video debuting for the first time on Video of the Week here on Phish.net.

All we can say is "Wow!" Dan's and my breath were taken away watching this extraordinary 25 minutes from 1994-11-22 at Phish's performance of Yerushalayim Shel Zahav at the one and only stint at University of Missouri's Jesse Auditorium. Among other highlights of the show were the only performance of Blackbird outside of Halloween at Glens Falls, the final performance of Little Tiny Butter Biscuits, and a Big Black Fury Creature From Mars that started electric and morphed into the acoustic lineup that had been so prevelant this tour. However, the highlight of the night, indeed was the Jam > Yerushalayim Shel Zahav which ended up being included as filler for Live Phish 18 (the legendary Bomb Factory show).

If you've had even a cursory eye on Phish videos lately, you probably noticed some great videos uploaded by @telekinetica. Dave has a slew of videos on YouTube spanning not only Phish & Trey, but Santana, Hendrix, Beastie Boys, Arctic Monkeys and a whole lot more. Be sure to check out some of his nearly 500 videos on You Tube.

Read on to hear some thoughts from Dave about this great video...
