I Didn't Know

kipmat Good ol' Mimi Fishman. She made several appearances on stage with Phish during the early 90's, but this has to be the most adorable. The recollection she shares of Fish's childhood might be a little embarrassing, but her vacuum solo must have made him proud, just as Fish would have certainly made Mimi proud by winning election to the governing body of Lincolnville, Maine. A sweet moment from a sweet Mother's Day show.

kipmat This version is notable for a few reasons:
1) Fishman is apparently soloing on his trombone without the mouthpiece? His solo almost sounds like a different horn, like a piccolo trumpet or mini-trombone
2) Trey stays on guitar throughout the song, like he does during If I Only Had A Brain, accompanying Fish's solo along with Page and Mike
3) Near the end, instead of "Pardon me, Doug", Trey just sings "Doug", and Fishman interjects "he stole my trombone mouthpiece"
4) They goof up the very end :) and extend the last note of "hi-i-i-ide" into the Bowie intro that follows. Great stuff.
