History

It would be easy to label this song as a fun Henrietta one-shot, but the beauty that was expressed in Phish’s lone rendition on 11/28/95 can’t be stressed enough. The band sat long-time influence Colonel Bruce Hampton in a chair on the stage and allowed Henrietta to serenade him. They chose this former top-40 ballad, an inspirational song about an unsung hero, while their unsung hero was moved to... read a newspaper while they played. So maybe it was a fun Henrietta one-shot…
