Guests: Phish and Neil Young [Thrasher’s Wheat]

Phish and Neil Young have had a few jams together over the years.

Phish have covered a number of Neil Young’s songs including “Albuquerque”, “Cinnamon Girl”, and “Cortez the Killer” according to the Covers Project.

Band leader Trey Anastasio has stated in interviews that Tonight’s The Night influenced the production of Phish’s Farmhouse release. The song “Thrasher” influenced Phish’s Tom Marshall when composing “The Wedge”

Song choice played a much larger role for the group than it ever has, and the jamming, while still prevalent, became more concise. While many could contend that this marks the end of the Phish “we all know and love,” I would argue against that. The band is communicating in a new way while still using the same language, it just may take a more active listener to appreciate it.

2009 was one of the most amazing years of my life, with Phish as a prime element of joy. This blog has been a major part of my journey, in creativity and sober recovery, as influenced and enriched by Phish. That journey is now diverting. The timing is right.

If someone had told me the song of the night, and maybe the run, would be the mid second set “Get Back on the Train,” I would have laughed, and laughed hard. But, hot damn, that’s exactly what Phish dropped on us, an exploratory, type-II jam that left behind all semblance of the normal choo-choo-honky-tonk-steam-locomotive theme that the song normally embodies. My mind raced to compare it to something, but this was “one of a kind,” a la the “Fee” from Virginia Beach in the summer of ’99.
