Although they gave it a good shot, Phish's performance of "Yer Blues" is usually the biggest criticism that discerning fans have of the 1994 Halloween White Album set. Phish’s version of this classic tune gets a lot of flak for being performed in somewhat lackluster fashion, but no one really complains, considering the rest of the second set of 10/31/94 is almost completely priceless.

As always, decide for yourself...

Phish, "Yer Blues" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
