Seek out both versions of this song for some fun special guest action. Tim O’Brien joined Phish for the last three songs of the 8/7/96 first set, closing the three-song medley with a strong version of this old Jimmie Skinner tune. The real keeper is 7/1/99, though, which features O’Brien (fiddle), Jerry Douglas (dobro), and Ronnie McCoury (mandolin), an all-star version that kicks, albeit respectfully, the ass of the Red Rocks version.

Submit notes/corrections is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
