How do you make a potentially goofy cover even goofier? Well, you invite the Dude of Life to sing the vocals, throw rubber chickens into the crowd, and have him bring his lawnmower. That’s exactly how The Dude presented this one-time cover when he performed this song with Phish at the legendary 12/31/92 show. If you would like to hear a bit of this 1970’s nostalgia, either seek out a copy of the New Years ‘92 show, or pay close attention to the Muzak playing in your dentist’s office next time you’re getting a cavity filled. You’re sure to find it in either place.
