This song, the opening tune on The Velvet Underground’s Loaded, inaugurated Phish’s 1998 Halloween “musical costume.” The band covered it solidly, albeit a bit meekly, keeping their version completely faithful to the original. This opening on cautious ground helped set a solid foundation upon which they would build the madness of, among other things, the “Sweet Jane,” “Rock and Roll,” and “Lonesome Cowboy Bill” to come.
