Book Description

3 Jun 2014 Mockingbird Foundation
This new edition of "The Phish Companion" (TPC3) is the definitive guide to the band and its music. "TPC3" gives fans an updated reference guide, and is accompanied by book - related mobile apps and e-book editions. It covers Phish's history through the end of 2012. "TPC3" is written and compiled entirely by volunteers through Phish.net. Far beyond being mere lists of facts, a record of what the band has performed live involves thousands of creative decisions related to song titles, song transitions, song notes, show notes, presentation, and the annotation of teases, quotes, and jams, among other matters. The resulting proprietary database serves as a basis for the book and more than a dozen websites. Previous editions of "The Phish Companion" (in 2000 and 2004) drew from those same resources but in their entirety, and topped 920 pages and 4.2 pounds. The 2013 edition features a completely new design, a more portable format, and a more strategic selection of contents, while incorporating nine years of additional history, as well as related content. The print and electronic versions of the newest edition will continue the mission of the nonprofit Mockingbird Foundation, whose proceeds fund music education for children.

Product Description

About the Author

THE MOCKINGBIRD FOUNDATION, INC. was founded in 1996 by fans of the band Phish to raise funds for music education. With no salaries, staff, office, or endowment, the 11 directors live in 8 states, have supported grantees in 43 states, and work with volunteers worldwide. The foundation exists almost exclusively online, using the Internet for publicity, fundraising, all internal communications, and even to develop, produce, and distribute intellectual property. Mockingbird now utilises blogs, forums, RSS feeds, Twitter, and Facebook; and publishes content to a dozen other sites through a set of APIs, and to four mobile device apps through strategic partnerships.

5.0 out of 5 stars Updates OTW 12 Mar 2014
By Ellis Godard - Published on Amazon.com
Amazon's information here continues to be in error. It isn't out of print, since it isn't in print yet; and "limited availability" is inaccurate, since it isnt available at all yet, but will be unlimited once it is. Further, the publishing info is incorrect: TPC3 won't be through Backbeat (it will be self-published by the Mockingbird Foundation); and the ISBN will change, and is TBD. For more information, see news at Phish.net and/or Mbird.org, and watch for updates later this Spring.
