See the notes for 12/31/86 entry in The Mockingbird Companion below:
Notes: Though this wasn’t a Phish show, it is likely the first time members of Phish performed publicly on New Year’s Eve.
A booking company telephoned The Joneses on New Year’s Eve and asked them if they could play a last-minute show.
Apparently not all members of the band were in town so they added Trey and Page and played the show as a combination
of the two bands, called “The Phones.” The lineup included Trey on guitar, Page on keys, Steve Drebber on drums, Dan Pine
on drums, Tim “T.J.” Johnston on bass, and Mark Jensen on percussion. Sound was engineered by Garrett Mead. While a
setlist is not available, it is known that the show included Eyes of the World, Grapevine (I Heard it Through the...), and a
Bachman-Turner Overdrive song. While most “sideshows” are listed in a separate chapter, this show is also listed here for
ts historical significance.
This recording is NOT the 12/31/86 show. (it's still missing if anyone out there has it please send me an email!)
Rather, this is likely a live rehearsal at The Ranch for the 12/31 show.
The exact line-up is uncertain, but in addition to Page, Trey and Mike, my guess would be Steve Drebber on drums,
Tim (TJ) Johnson on bass, Mark Jensen on percussion, and possibly another guitar player.
The disc is tracked out the way it is, so that none of the jams are cut.
You can choose to track it however you like.

|I just added this one to the etree database:
thanks for sharing!
though I do have one question...
if the 12/31/86 was a last minute thing put together, how would they have known to do a "live rehearsal" a few weeks before? I'm not really disputing that the date of this show is accurate, or that it was a combination of Phish and the Joneses (because I know that both bands played together often back then). But I'm just curious what was really going on here.
|Jason, to be honest, I have no idea. I just used the information that was given to me on the j-card of the analog. If anyone out there has any more information, please share it.
I do know that The Ranch was a house that the bands often played at and not a true "venue"
Perhaps it was known at this point that the 12/31 show was going to happen, and they got together to go through some material.
|niceness ... thanks wayne :)
|Wow Thanks man. The uncirculated caught my eye.
|Wow... nice find. Thanks!
|Jason and Wayne, I wonder if the date should be 12/18??? That would make more sense as to the last minute date???
|Thanx for the "KIND" post!
|Events that occurred at the "Ranch" should be viewed in the appropriate context. If my memory serves correctly, members of these two bands lived at this address and sessions there were generally parties or other informal get togethers. To call them "shows" can be a tad misleading. We're talking 1986 - The Joneses ruled the Burlington musical universe and the little outfit known as Phish was just starting to reveal themselves.
As the story goes, Trey auditioned to be a member of the early Joneses but didn't make the cut. Despite the crushing disappointment, he was able to collect himself and start a new band with the hopes of someday achieving the status held by the mighty Joneses.
It wasn't until the Joneses had graduated and left Burlington that Phish was able to fill that void in the music scene.
The rest is history...
