Show Notes

This was Phish’s 13th show, an African Relief Benefit for OXFAM.  Local reggae band Lambsbread was supposed to play (too?) but they canceled.  This show featured the 1st public performance of Anarchy, which is an extremely short punk rock spoof.  This version of Fire On The Mountain featured special guests Bobby Hackney and Jah Roy from Lambsbread, who sung the lyrics “Fire up the Ganja”.  In Mike’s words, Jah Roy was the other singer from Lambsbread (in addition to Bobby) with huge dreadlocks who did the authentic Jamaican dub style.  While the band still referred to the song as Skippy The Wondermouse, this version of Skippy was the 1st to contain the narrated lyrics to McGrupp And The Watchful Hosemasters, which Tom had recently sent to Trey.
