    better than my expectations

    I knew this book was going to be good, but it exceeded my already high expectations. Some of the tidbits - such as the real lyrics to Halley's Comet - were astounding.

    All proceeds benefit music education!

    This is the definitive desk reference to Phish, more comprehensive (in both depth and breadth) than any other work, with assistance from the band's archivist (in verifying hundreds of shows and setlists) and the band's lyricist (writing the forward). All of the Foundation's proceeds benefit music education for children - We're thrilled to finally be putting this book in your hands, and excited to begin disbursing the proceeds to charity as soon as possible!
