One of George Harrison’s compositions for The Beatleseponymous double-LP, this skunky rocker is strangely reminiscent of Thomas Pynchon’s disturbing novel Gravity’s Rainbow. Phish injected an extra helping of juice into the already juicy composition for their 10/31/94 White Album set.

Phish, "Savoy Truffle" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
