 Phish debut; abbreviated version.
· Psycho Killer tease in Down with Disease
Average Song Gap: 9
Notes: Trey announced “Dan” as the winner of the contest from the night before, as Dan was the first to call Mike’s hotline to name Dust in the Wind as the song that was teased. Trey announced the prize was a private vacuum solo from Fish to Dan. As homage to the movie Old School (which also featured Dust in the Wind), Trey encouraged the crowd to “earmuff” it while Dan received his prize. To bring the rest of the crowd in on the joke, Phish subsequently debuted an abbreviated version of Dust in the Wind. The song began as a solo vacuum piece but Trey jumped in on vocals to assist the struggling Fish. Disease contained Psycho Killer teases and was unfinished. Catapult was sung over the jam that emerged from Disease.

At first it was just the tangent in the middle that grabbed me, and while that 2-part adventure is still the mind-blowing peak for me, after numerous listens the entire jam, from the drop to the end, is a masterwork in its own right.
RIDICULOUS replay value here, if you give it a chance and a few listens to really grow like a fungus on your cerebral cortex.
