I know a lot of folks on this website don't care for The Phish From Vermont, but for those who do, or anybody who is just curious, here is a link to a torrent of their Halloween show, featuring a cover of Little Feat's legendary live album Waiting For Columbus:

Or, if you're somebody who really, truly dislikes Phish, maybe you should listen to it anyway, just to give you a fresh new reason to hate them. You're welcome

If nothing else, hopefully we can all agree that it's cool of Phish to introduce their fanbase to the majesty of Lowell George and Co. Many of their fans are apparently painfully ignorant of the very existence of Little Feat, judging from the Internet response.

i'm not a phish phan but i think i saw them in '84 in a little club located between woodstock & saugerties ny....they covered grateful dead tunes & were part of a few bands around town then,or passing through who were dead cover bands....they did a nice job albeit a bit thin sounding.

in the early 2000's someone gave me a cd of a show with b.b. king & i thought they did nicely.

trey playing at beacon with warren & derek,which i saw,was a poor choice--trey clearly seemed out of his league.

their lyrics are sorta ridiculous & their "original" jamming seems boring,lacking in the extra creative edge that the grateful dead brought.

but,if you dig them,have fun

Phish definitely hit the Northeast/New England club scene hard in the mid 80s, and back in the day they were known to play Dead covers, although they really don't anymore. Some people speculated that was going to be their Halloween set this year, a Dead album.

It's funny how subjective music can be. I've listened to the 3/12/09 Beacon show with Trey many times and think he does just fine, especially Liz Reed, but to each their own.

Like I said dadof2, if nothing else they have impeccable taste and should be respected for taking the time and effort to salute some of rock's forefathers. There are a lot of Phish fans who know more about Little Feat today than they did yesterday, and that's a good thing.

listened to the stream last night and liked what I heard.
Thought it took a bit of guts to pick and album not well known to the younger crowd'
WFC has always been in my top 5 live RnR albums, so I was pretty pumped when I heard this.
THe best part, I'm gonna pull out m Lowell era Feat.

Thanks for the link Rob, I'm looking forward to giving this one a listen. While never being a real Phish Phan (the lyrics just don't compute for my 60 year old brain, but they can play with most anyone!), I do appreciate their musicianship and their tradition of paying tribute to their influences, especially on Halloween. My daughter is a huge fan and usually sees 15 - 20 shows a year when they are touring. She was in Atl City this We for all the shows and being my daughter, the ABB and Lf round out her top 3 fav bands. she never misses a chance to see any of them whenever possible. She was very excited when word leaked out a couple of weeks ago that they would be covering Little Feat. She was home mid-week last week for a death in the family and confiscated my WFC t-shirt to sport in Atl City. she said that Mike Gordon & Page McConnell are big fans of LF and with Richie Hayward's recent passing, Mike felt it was the right time to pay tribute. On their sit in with the ABB at the Beacon in 2009, I enjoyed their performance especially on Liz Reed. I read somewhere in the weeks right after that Beacon run that Trey said he was really surprised by the raw power of the ABB rhythm section with three drummers & Bass and that it took a little getting used to as it was very different feel than that of playing in a four piece band like Phish. My generation was very lucky to come of age in the late 60's & early 70's when so much great music and so many great bands were exploding on to the scene. In light of where popular music has gone since the 80's, i am very glad that they have bands like Phish & DTB & The Mule that they can identify with and that can bridge the gap back to where it all began. Just my 2 cents!

All fine and dandy....But count me amongst those who upon wanting to hear "Waiting for Columbus"...will play the original "Waiting for Columbus"...

This show, as cool as it may be...benefits the fans of .............Phish...Believe it or not, Little Feat is still touring...You want to be exposed to Little Feat?...Go to a Little Feat show!

http://www.livephish.com/live-music/0,575/Phish-mp3-flac-download-10-31-201 0-Boardwalk-Hall-Atlantic-City-NJ.html

# First Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin IV)

# Mike teased The Lemon Song (Led Zeppelin II) at the beginning of Halley's Comet

# Trey says "Ha, ha, ha!" at the beginning of David Bowie

# Whole Lotta Love tease at the end of Tweezer Reprise

imo, Phish is one of those bands that grow on you, sorta like Grateful Dead when you're new to them. my partner plays a lot of their stuff and I used to think it was all rather odd songs musically with peculiar lyrics.... however, Im slowly getting turned on to a few. They seem to have been around for a fair while with the same band member lineup and producing plenty of interesting new and original material. I think the hiatus was a good break to for members to clean up and come back refreshed. Seems to have brought back that 'it' factor to the live shows.

I do think Trey is a pretty accomplished guitarist (imo) - sorta out there but fascinating all the same. they do seem to be a talented group. Definately not for everyone's taste, however, they do appear to have a large following with plenty of sold out shows. One last comment, it seems the audience is overwhelminly male compared to other concerts. Any ideas why? partner seems to think that they dont write too many sugary ballad, lovey type songs compared to other bands...Too wacky for the ladies????

I too have experienced the rolling of eyes at the mention of Phish. I'm always into giving different stuff a listen a number of times and they sure are quite different but seem to have some sort of bizarre, decent staying power!

I did enjoy myself listening to WFC stream. Nice choice. Really cool that these bands are throwing these streams up free for us old 'couch' tour folks!

I was at that Saturday night show and it was absolutely smoking. The Led songs were off the hook.

You either love Phish or you hate them. Personally I love them live. Look forward to hearing this as I also love 'Waiting For Columbus'!

I wonder if Fishman made changes to his drum kit for the Fat Man...the drums are pretty heavy sounding. RIP Ritchie Hayward.


They brought out a whole new kit for Fish to use on the Feat set. It was a smaller kit, less toms, less cowbells and woodblocks and junk (bc they had Giovanni Hidalgo joining them on percussion, no doubt).

Also the PhishBill (the program they hand out in advance of the Halloween shows) included a very nice tribute from Fishman to Richie Hayward, as well as a great retrospective by David Fricke on the import of Little Feat on Phish's development, and on the lasting significance of "Waiting For Columbus."

Phish did a nice job covering this classic of classics. I agree that it probably introduced a whole lotta people to Little Feat. Is it the same as the original? No. But then again, neither is the current lineup of Little Feat, and I like them just the same.

Doesn't get why people want to hear and think its cool that they covered the whole record.........and that's perfectly okay. I actually own "Waiting for Columbus" and have seen Little Feat a few times, yet don't understand why everytime there's a thread about Phish, you feel the need to let everyone know again that you don't like or get what they do. That's cool, I'm sure everyone has taken note and filed that away.

Not being a **** , there's just no reason to continually point out to a bunch of people that dig something that you don't like it. It's childish and it keeps happening. There's nothing wrong with a band not floating your boat, that's what's awesome about music.

My point isn't to call you out or anything, just to merely say "who cares".

I love Phish but I refuse to see them in a shed/lawn venue at a summer show with high ticket prices for a lawn seat. So I only go to indoor phish shows now.

I'm glad the ABB does not do this with ticket prices for lawn seats at shed venues.

I understand not everyone likes phish. I don't like every band or musician out there either.

I don't mind the studio albums because they remind me of highschool but their live music is far better.

jparadise, you should see what the Whippin Post section of the forum looks like!!!

At this point, I think some folks bust on Phish just because Phish-heads get so riled up...it's like picking low-hanging fruit, the same way people like to tease liberals or fundamentalists...

Hahaha, that's pretty funny and I'm sure that's a great comparison. I could care less if anyone likes or dislikes something, I like Phish.....I don't love them but it just seems hilarious to me that there's so much putting down of other people's tastes.....like it matters.

next to the ABB > LF is my band of choice..........

> the fact that Phish is introducing many to this great underrated band......is so fantastic.

I have listened to all of it and Phish did a terrific job IMHO of playing some difficult material to emulate.

good choice.
