Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads I'm much more of a Beatles fan than a Stones fan, but like Halloweens '95, '96, '98, and possibly '10, I have the musical costume of this show to thank for giving me motivation to learn more about the covered band. My Dad used to have Hot Rocks on eight-track, and I enjoyed the singles from the Rolling Stones but didn't give much credence otherwise to their albums at all until after hearing this show. As I said, it was pretty much that way with The Who, Talking Heads, The Velvet Underground, and Little Feat--respectively--as well. Now, after hearing Phish cover it, Exile on Main St is my favorite Stones album, and the one I'm most familiar with. Just as an aside, if Phish is going to keep doing musical costumes for Halloween--and I hope they do!--I could go for some more modern selections. Remain in Light was from the 1980s, but I'm left scratching my head when I think of what Phish could do with more recent material to cover and their choice not to. Mike Gordon Band does a good job of keeping the covers interesting, but for the most part, I'm not most enthusiastic about Phish's covers, but rather their originals, so does it matter? Who knows, man... who effing knows!
