SplitOpenAndMule I just want to add a note about the FYF debut, and sole live performance of the song until 2010. It can be listened to by downloading this show from the spreadsheet.

The recording starts at the second verse. It sounds like it does today, but instead of the "Hi, I'm Bill..." line, Page says "Hi, I'm Page," (which I think is especially funny) and the band immediately goes into the fast-paced ascending riff. But then, instead of the song stopping like it does today, Trey turns on Jimmy Page mode while the rest of the band is silent, essentially playing off of the Heartbreaker solo. Trey's guitar tone sounds exceptionally screechy and bad ass. Mike comes in with the Dazed and Confused bass riff, Trey keeps soloing and the band plays on the Dazed theme for a brief time before closing with a long sustained noise fade out (not sure what else to call it).

It's only about two minutes of Phish history, but I thought it was worth sharing for anyone that wants to hear some of Trey's Jimmy Page influence.
