The Mockingbird Foundation, a nonprofit assemblage of Phish fans incorporated in 1997, is proud and honored to announce that pre-orders are now being accepted for The Phish Companion: A Guide to the Band and Their Music, coming this fall through our publisher Miller Freeman Books.
This incredibly comprehensive, encyclopedic desk reference includes the most complete and accurate set of information available about every aspect of Phish’s shows, songs, and history. Setlists and other information have been verified against thousands of tapes, as well as the band’s own vault, thanks to cooperation from official archivist Kevin Shapiro. The book also include extensive song histories, show reviews, jamming tune charts, discography, statistics, interviews, essays, poetry, and much more – even a foreword by band lyricist Tom Marshall. All proceeds from the book will benefit charity, initially music education for kids.
If you order directly from the publisher (any of the methods below will work), you will get a free 3-song CD: The Nancy Tracks! It contains the original versions of “Halley’s Comet,” “I Didn’t Know,” and “Snootable Snunshine,” all written by Richard Wright (aka “Nancy Taube”) for the band!
