REGISTRATION OPEN FOR THE PHILOSOPHY SCHOOL OF PHISH

For the eighth year in a row, Dr. Stephanie Jenkins will teach the “Philosophy School of Phish” course—more formally called the “Philosophy of Art and Music”—via Oregon State University’s Ecampus program. Using the band as a case study, students will explore canonical theories about art and its meaning, from ancient to modern times. Registration is open now and class begins on March 29th!

Space is limited. To enroll, follow instructions for registering through OSU’s ecampus and enroll in PHL 360: Philosophy & the Arts (CRN 59716). (Because this class is a special section of a regular course offering, you will not find PHL 360 listed online as “Philosophy School of Phish.”) Make sure Dr. Jenkins is listed as the professor. Note: You do not have to be a current OSU student to take this course. You’ll need to apply and enroll as a “non-degree seeking student.”

NEW TO CIRCULATION (COMPLETE?): APRIL 9, 1990

Thanks once again to Niel Ringstad for the SBD1 cassettes, and the generosity of @Jeff_Goldberg with The Audio Specialist and Jeff's skills and time, Phish's show on April 9, 1990, at the Fly Me To The Moon Saloon in Telluride, Colorado, is now circulating in as complete a form as is believed to be possible.

You may review the setlist and notes if you Read More below. And you can download the show at this handy link here, and now, or tomorrow instead, or perhaps next week or month, courtesy of @ucpete, who conformed the files to etree community standards, because that's just the kind of thoughtful gentleman he is. And if you missed the release of April 8, 1990, and April 8, 1992, also from Niel's tape collection, check out this blog post from three years ago (which coincidentally is almost how long it took me to remember to circulate 4/9/90 as well, whooops!).

5/3/93 SOUNDCHECK RELEASED, FEATURING "WILL I DANCE (ON GRAVE)"

For decades, some fans believed that the lyrics of "Guy Forget" included:

Basking in the silence
Soaking up the violence
Will the good lord save
Or will I dance on grave?

This has proved mistaken; the only lyric of "Guy Forget" is---you guessed it---"I've never met a man that I could not forget except for Guy Forget." How do we know this?

After conferring with Dave Abrahams about "Guy Forget" (whose lyrics he authored), and after unearthing the never-circulating-until-now 5/3/93 soundcheck---thank you Eric Becker for the recording, and Jeff Goldberg of Audio Specialist for the transfer!---which you can download here and which contains the only known (and hilarious) performance of what we're calling "Will I Dance" with Tom Marshall's permission, it has been determined that "Will I Dance" and "Guy Forget" are entirely different uhm "songs."

Accordingly, the "Guy Forget" song history has been revised and amended with ZZYZX's consent, and the "Will I Dance" history created from part of the former "Guy Forget" history. The histories of these two "songs" are thus forever, albeit ridiculously, linked.

LANDING WITH A TWIST

[We'd like to thank @paulj for once again contributing a thought-provoking analysis piece to the blog - ed.]

Since its introduction in June of 1997, "Twist" has been a welcome addition to the Phish catalogue. With just a couple of exceptions during its early years, "Twist" has never been out of regular rotation, averaging an appearance about every five shows.

With only 10% of its appearances in the first set, "Twist" has fulfilled a variety of roles in the second set. First, "Twist" made its debut as a second set opener and, in its 145 total appearances, has been a set opener 15 times.

Second, although "Twist" does not generally enjoy the big jam reputation of its contemporaries such as "Piper" and "Ghost," it has a top ten ranking in total number of Jam Chart entries during the 3.0 era. "Twist"’s 23 Jam Chart entries for 3.0 were, I’ll happily admit, a bit of a surprise as I’d always pigeon-holed the song into its third role: maintaining the second set groove.

RIP, JIM STINNETT

We learned of Jim Stinnett while putting together the second edition of The Phish Companion, which had forewords from those who were music teachers to Phish: Jane Ambrose, who taught Trey at the University of Vermont; Paul Asbell, Trey’s guitar teacher at the University of Vermont; Dave Hanlon, Fishman’s only music teacher; Lois Harris, who taught all of them but Mike; and Jim Stinnet, Mike's bass instructor.

Jim taught hundreds of other students, primarily at Berklee College Of Music, before he passed away last Sunday. His family has invited celebration of his life on a Facebook post, and JamBase has assembled some videos including Mike's rememberances and Jim's guest appearance 12/29/95.

Here, we'd like to share Jim's part of that education-focused Foreword from nearly 17 years ago:
