Fire Up the Ganja

Music: Mickey Hart

Lyrics: Robert Hunter

Vocals: Phish and Lambís Bread

Debut: 1985-03-04

Historian: Mockingbird Staff

This Rastafarian rendition of “Fire on the Mountain” is known to have occurred only twice in Phish history – on 3/4/85 and 4/19/85 – each time with members of Lamb’s Bread. With lyrics that parody Hunter’s original words providing an obvious thematic spin, this tune has gone down in Phish history as one of the band’s most irreverent (but least heard) covers.
