Further On Up the Road
Music/Lyrics: Joe Medwick Veasey and Don D. Robey
Original Artist: Bobby “Blue” Bland
Original Album: Blues Consolidated (1961)
Phish, along with Russ Lawton, Tony Markellis and Dave Grippo, performed this song during the encore of one of the final shows of the first Trey Anastasio solo tour on 5/17/99 at Burlington's Flynn Theatre. First released by Bobby “Blue” Bland in 1960 (as “Farther Down The Road”), the song has become a blues standard over the years and has been performed by many artists including T-Bone Walker, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton. It is possible Trey felt the song better suited to a power trio as it hasn’t been played since by Phish or any of Trey’s other bands.
