Albums: Inside In
This song, documenting Mike's apparent willingness to trade anything from bureaucratic hassles to precious stones in exchange for admission to some sort of finishing school so transformational that its graduates have been known to rave about turning their old selves "inside in," has never been performed publicly by Phish. It was, however, recorded by Phish during the Round Room sessions resulting in a version that didn't stray too far from the version on Mike's vastly underrated studio effort, Inside In. Anyone interested in hearing a more stretched out version of the song should seek out one of the performances from Mike's 2003 solo tour; the 10/16/03 version should do the trick.
