Music/Lyrics: Lennon/McCartney

Vocals: Mike

Original Artist: The Beatles

Original Album: The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) (1968)

Albums: Live Phish 13

Debut: 1994-10-31

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

reydempto Considering Yer Blues goes through like 3 different time signatures throughout, I would have to say they did a pretty good job on it...especially when you put into consideration the amount of songs are in the White Album. Not to mention that the album covers several different styles of music!

iandisoftheworld I have more criticism for songs other than "Yer Blues" from Phish's White Album costume.
