It's surprising that Trey didn’t sing this song as “Marley My Dear,” seeing as how Paul McCartney originally wrote it for his own dog, Martha. Despite this seeming oversight, the band did a fine job re-orchestrating the horn-and-strings laden song for their four-piece setup at the 1994 Halloween show.

Phish, "Martha My Dear" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
