WON'T RECORD COVERS?

We won't record any covers. ... I don't think that most of the covers we do are in an original enough fashion to merit putting them on an album. .. Its something we just don't put that much energy into. The covers that we learn, we learn because they're great songs and we play around. ... It's kind of more like educational material than it is something that we want to ... put our stamp on.

Mistercharlie Only thing wrong with this is that the interview took place two months after the release of A Picture of Nectar. And as we all know that album contained a cover of Manteca.

No, they put their stamp on Menteca. Phish' sversion is very different than Dizzy's.
