Songfacts®:

  • Mike Gordon's songs are often inspired by dreams. The former Phish bassist told Rolling Stone magazine: "When I wrote 'Andelman's Yard' I had this reoccurring dream about burrowing tunnels in my neighborhood. Dreams are my guide posts in my career and if I'm onstage having an incredible jam, I kind of link to some dream I had the night before or one of these reoccurring dreams."
