The band apparently liked covering this one on Halloween 1994 as it showed up a few more times (11/22/94, 6/16/95, and 11/21/98). Although the 10/31/94 version (true to the White Album itself) also featured the “Brother can you take me back” refrain that precedes “Revolution 9,” subsequent versions did not.

Phish, "Cry Baby Cry" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
