Michael: A lot of people say that- Jon: I love the singer and I think they have a good sound in general, like their overall sound's kinda ethereal, it's got some grit to it, it's not all slick and perfected and produced.
Jon: To some degree they did pretty well, they were playing like 10,000 seaters - it wasn't like they were selling out Wembley Stadium or anything but they were doing well.
Jon: I think that Phish has been a band, we've all had- I've had a great life growing up and everybody in my band's had a really good life, none of us have got anything to complain about at all.

That's the driving sensibility of this compilation of favorite Frank Zappa performances from Phish drummer Jon Fishman; the irony, of course, is that the result is a mixed sense of musical nostalgia and inspiration that veteran iconoclast Zappa himself would scarcely have subscribed to.
All Jon Fishman did was pay tribute to Frank by putting together some of HIS favorite Zappa moments, perhaps in an effort to turn some Phish fans onto Zappa in the process, who might never have given him a listen otherwise.
