"Messin' With the Kid” is a quintessential blues number penned by Mel London in the late ‘50s, and originally showing up on a Junior Wells single in 1960. Phish has performed this tune with Chicago bluesman Sugar Blue twice, as an encore on 8/8/97 and 10/3/99, the latter performance also featuring Son Seals on guitar. Sugar lent his harmonica and vocals to both performances of the song, a standard that has been covered by everyone from the Blues Brothers to Johnny Winter to the World Saxophone Quartet.
