included Trey wearing devil horns, latex pants, and strap-on breasts
(which he ran around fondling during the Ninja Custodian’s set) and Mike
wearing a dog-faced mask. The band distributed boxes of macaroni and
cheese for audience use during the Bowie intro. This Bowie, at over 20
minutes, was, at the time, one of the longest versions ever. During the
pause in Letter to Jimmy Page, Trey wished happy birthday to Mary Ellen.
Lizards contained an I Dream of Jeannie tease from Page. The show
closed with Trey returning to the Kung theme, as he promised to stage
another runaway golf cart marathon this time next year. Ninja Custodian
was the opening act.

Notes: Memories was performed without microphones. The vocal jam in YEM
repeated "A slice of pizza". During the costume contest, there was a
brief full-band tease of Jesus Just Left Chicago, inspired by a fan in a
Jesus costume (with a cross on his back!). The first round of the
contest closed with a rendition of Can't Turn You Loose. After each
unsuccessful entrant was eliminated, Trey forced them to stage-dive.
HYHU was also played briefly during the contest. First prize - free
admission to all Phish shows for one year - was shared by The Bergen
County Woman Cop and Captain Bong Hit. This show marked the first
appearance of Wait, which was played three times during the show. During
the final Wait, before Bowie, the audience was chanting “Fuck you!” in
response. Bowie contained two Charlie Chan signals and Random Laugh and
Oom Pa Pa signals during the jam. I Didn’t Know featured a vacuum solo
by “Showboat Gertrude,” which continued well into the final verse of the

 Stash tease from Trey in intro.
 "Charge!" tease from Page.
Notes: Harpua included the Vibrations of Life and Death. Jimmy decided
to put on his favorite album Barney's Greatest Hits, but turned his
turntable on the wrong way and started playing it backwards. Fishman
then proceeded to sing a verse of War Pigs. Trey subsequently teased I
Love You (a.k.a. the theme to Barney & Friends) before Harpua
resumed. Poster was swallowed up into the earth by the Vibration of
Death. "The Vibration of Death is gone" replaced the usual "The storm is
gone." Prior to the Vibration of Life, Wilson was teased and quoted. A
Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon tease (the heartbeats from Speak to Me)
was pumped through the P.A. at the beginning of the second set. The
second set "musical costume" was The Beatles' The Beatles (also known as
The White Album). All of the White Album songs, other than Piggies,
were Phish debuts, although Ob La Di, Ob La Da had been jammed or teased
on many occasions. Piggies was played for the first time since 11/14/85
(876 shows). HYHU was teased prior to Why Don't We Do It in the Road.
Birthday wasn’t sung; Page and Mike noodled a bit while Fishman
presented a birthday cake to Brad Sands, who accepted it while wearing a
Fishman dress. Cry Baby Cry ended with Fishman on vaccum with
Revolution 9 segueing out of the vacuum solo. The background tape
playing along with Revolution 9 was Mike’s composition He Ent to the Bog
from Phish’s White Tape. The song ended with Fishman stark naked and
running around while the band blew bubbles and waved. Good Night was
taped from the album and closed the second set. The third set began with
a Custard Pie tease, while Antelope's intro contained a Stash tease
from Trey. The Costume Contest contained a "Charge!" tease from Page.
This show was officially released as Live Phish 13. The soundcheck's Jam
was released as an iTunes bonus track called "Glen Falls Soundcheck
Jam" and contained a Frankenstein tease from Mike, jamming based on
Landlady, and a Binary Sunset (or the Force Theme) from Star Wars tease

Notes: Harpua included a story from Mike about a dream about raccoons.
The Michael Jackson references continued, as Trey teased the audience by
saying that Jimmy was listening to the Halloween album while the band
played a Beat It tease. Also, the second set was preceded by a Thriller
tease. The second set "musical costume" was The Who's Quadrophenia and
was performed with Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on
trombone, Joey Sommerville on trumpet and Alan Parshley on French horn.
During Bell Boy, crew member Leigh Fordham, clad in a bell boy outfit,
sang Keith Moon’s original part. All of the Quadrophenia songs, as well
as My Generation, were Phish debuts. YEM was almost 40 minutes long and
was preceded by the audience chess move. The chosen fan, dressed as a
Wookie, cracked under the pressure and could not choose a move on stage,
prompting a quote from Fish that “Wookies can’t play chess.” Jesus Just
Left Chicago featured Grippo on alto saxophone; Suzy Greenberg featured
Grippo, Glasgo and Somerville. My Generation was performed acoustic.
Before My Generation, the crew set up a Keith Moon replica drum set on
stage. After the song, Fishman and Trey destroyed the drum set a la The
Who. Finally, a stagehand brought out a large plunger. Trey pressed it
and set off a huge explosion backstage. This show was officially
released as Live Phish 14. The soundcheck's Suzy Greenberg was performed
with horns, contained alternate lyrics and Bell Boy quotes.

Notes: The Mockingbird narration included a reference to The Talking
Heads’ David Byrne, who appeared in the mountain as the face of Icculus.
As Trey told the story, Byrne threw Colonel Forbin off the mountain and
into the arms of the “evil” Famous Mockingbird. The second set "musical
costume" was The Talking Heads' Remain in Light. All of the Remain in
Light songs were Phish debuts; the set featured Karl Perazzo on
percussion, Dave Grippo on saxophone, and Gary Gazaway on trumpet.
Perazzo also played during the entire third set. Jesus Just Left
Chicago, Suzy Greenberg, and Frankenstein also featured Grippo and
Gazaway. At the end of Houses in Motion (which featured Trey teasing
Tweezer), an armchair was brought out to the center of the stage and
Mike sat in it to sing Seen and Not Seen. While he sang, Karl Perazzo
drummed and Trey played bass. After Overload, a bizarre on-stage
demonstration closed the set. The third set opened with a Feel Like a
Stranger tease. Suzy included a Born Under Punches tease from Page.
Simple included a tease of Mama Told Me Not to Come. The soundcheck's
Overload was performed with horns and briefly featured Fishman on

Underground's Loaded. All of the songs in the second set were Phish
debuts, except for Sweet Jane and Lonesome Cowboy Bill (which hadn’t
been played since June 10, 1995, or 267 shows). The long jam out of
Wolfman’s included Esther, Saw It Again, Sleeping Monkey, and Lifeboy
teases. The band left the stage during Ghost, as the sound of Trey’s
delay loop ended the set. This show was webcast live and was officially
released as Live Phish 16.

Notes: This show was part of the three-show Festival 8. Playbills were
distributed on-site (beginning at 12:30pm, 8 hours in advance)
confirming that the second set (the band's "musical costume") would be
the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St. After Divided Sky, Trey
acknowledged the beauty of the venue and announced that Page would now
play a love song to the lawn since it was the first time they had played
on grass in a long time. Antelope's lyrics were changed to "Been you
to have any Coil, man?" (The Coil was an art installation on the venue
grounds.) Set 2 began with a video highlighting selections of the 99
classic albums displayed and then systematically eliminated on the
phish.com web site leading up to the festival. Selections in the montage
included snippets from Michael Jackson's Thriller, T Rex's Electric
Warrior, Metallica's Master of Puppets, Miles Davis's A Tribute to Jack
Johnson, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and The Doors (self titled), among
others. All of the Exile on Main St songs were Phish debuts, except for
Loving Cup and Sweet Virginia. All songs in the second set except for
Casino Boogie, Torn and Frayed, and I Just Want To See His Face featured
Dave Guy on trumpet, David Smith on trombone, and Tony Jarvis on
saxophone. Tumbling Dice, Sweet Virginia, and Loving Cup through Soul
Survivor also featured Sharon Jones and Saundra Williams on backup
vocals. Trey introduced the horn section after Tumbling Dice and again
after the completion of the costume, before saying "We are the Rolling
Stones. See you later." Suzy Greenberg was played with Jones, Williams,
and the horns. This show featured the first Sweet Virginia since
September 26, 1999 (173 shows).

Notes: Page performed Frankenstein on keytar. Spooky was performed for
the first time since April 14, 1993 (751 shows). The second set "musical
costume" was Little Feat's 1978 Waiting for Columbus. Join the Band
(the first track of Waiting for Columbus) was played over the PA before
the start of the second set. Subsequently, Phish was introduced as
"Little Feat" before Fat Man in the Bathtub. In the tradition of some of
Phish's previous crowd experiments in the early '90s, flyers explaining
a new Secret Language prank were included in the Phishbills that were
passed out to fans as they walked into the show. The prank, designed to
confuse those who would later listen to the recording, consisted of an
announcer introducing Phish (as Little Feat). When the announcer would
say a letter of the band FEAT ("Give me an F!"), the crowd would respond
with letters corresponding to PHISH ("P-H!"). All of the songs in the
second set other than Time Loves a Hero were Phish debuts. All of the
songs in the second set, other than Don't Bogart That Joint and Willin',
featured Giovanni Hidalgo on percussion. A five piece horn section
consisting of Aaron Johnson, Stuart Bogie, Ian Hendrickson, Michael
Leonhart and Eric Biondo joined the band for Old Folks Boogie, Time
Loves a Hero, Day or Night, Mercenary Territory, Spanish Moon, Dixie
Chicken, Rocket in My Pocket and Feats Don't Fail Me Now. Willin'
featured Page on bass, Mike on piano, Trey on drums and Fish on vocals.
Prior to the piano solo at the beginning of Willin', Fish remarked,
"That's supposed to be Bill Payne on the keyboard." Don't Bogart That
Joint was performed a cappella. Trey introduced the guest musicians at
the start of Feats Don't Fail Me Now and Page teased "Charge!" during
the introductions. At the conclusion of the second set, the entire band
marched the perimeter of the floor. Disease was unfinished, was
initially botched, and had to be restarted, prompting Fish to declare,
"This one's off our album." Julius featured Giovanni Hidalgo and the
Waiting for Columbus horn section.

Sing Monica, Snow and Amidst the Peals of Laughter were all performed acoustic, and Amidst the Peals of Laughter was performed as a Page and Trey duet.
