The Dirty Jobs

Music/Lyrics: Pete Townsend

Vocals: Page

Original Artist: The Who

Original Album: Quadrophenia (1973)

Albums: Live Phish 14

Debut: 1995-10-31

Historian: Craig DeLucia

This song provides for a pivotal moment in Quadrophenia, as the narrator, Jimmy, is frightened by the possible futures that lay on his current path. Punctuated by horns, Phish performed the song as part of their rendition of the album in Chicago on Halloween, 1995. True to the album, the horns led the band from “Jobs” into “Helpless Dancer.”
