In his first appearance with Phish on 4/10/93, Sugar Blue lent his vocals and harp to this early ‘60s Sonny Boy Williamson song. Sugar has sat in with Phish on other occasions, always when the band is playing near his Chicago stomping grounds (see also 8/8/97 and 10/3/99), but this classic blues tune did not resurface at these subsequent collaborations.
