With lyrics by the Dude of Life and music arranged by Phish, “Family Picture” was played live but twice – once at the Dude's wedding, and then its only public performance on 11/8/91 at the Ivory Tusk in Tuscaloosa, AL. This is unquestionably a good thing. You can also hear it on the Dude’s album Crimes of the Mind, but you really don’t want to. Trust me.
