Indeed. “That’s Alright Mama” may be best known as Elvis’s first single; but it has been covered by a slew of artists over the years. Phish got added to the list of admirers on 5/6/93 in Albany, NY. Although Phish sounds a little hesitant at first, they pick up on it quickly while guest artists Dick Solberg (fiddle) and Jeff Walton (acoustic guitar) rip from the beginning to the end of this one appearance wonder.
