The Mockingbird Foundation and Phish.net have released a third edition of The Phish Companion: A Guide To The Music & Their Music. The companion is an invaluable guide to the band’s history, show reviews, fan art, original photos and tour capsules.
The eight chapter, 898 page hardcover book is filled with full-color pages capturing 33 years of Phish history. It includes art by some of the most esteemed Phish poster artists, such as AJ Masthay, David Welker and Justin Helton.
The Mockingbird Foundation has said that if the first two editions were like trusty, sturdy Subarus that could get you around reliably, then the third edition is “Doc Brown’s DeLorean” time-machine.
The book is available for purchase on the Phish Companion website. It will also be available for public sale outside of the website for the first time at the June 25 PhanArt show at the Cubby Bear in Chicago.
All proceeds from the Mockingbird Foundation go to benefit music education for children, and the foundation has raised nearly $1 million for the cause.
