Today marks the 67th birthday of Little Feat guitarist/vocalist Paul
Barrere. Little Feat's music was a huge inspiration on many jam acts including
both the Grateful Dead (Lowell George produced their Shakedown Street
LP) and Phish. For this week's installment of Full Show Friday we take the
JamBase Time Machine
back to Halloween 2010 for a look at Phish's three-set performance at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City,

The Vermonters kicked off their Halloween show with the fitting "Frankenstein"
keyboardist Page McConnell on keytar. Following the spooky "Big Black Furry Creatures
Mars," the quartet kept things rolling with an outstanding "Ghost" -> "Spooky"
When Phish came out for the second set they were joined by percussionist Giovanni
who would guest on the entire Waiting for Columbus set. The horn section of
Johnson, Stuart Bogie, Ian Hendrickson, Michael Leonhart and Eric Biondo augmented
group at various points of the Little Feat tribute. Phish nailed most of the
for Columbus selections with "Time Loves A Hero" > "Day Or Night," "Spanish
"Fat Man In The Bathtub" sticking out as particular highlights. The band focused on
originals in a third set that featured a rare extended "Wilson."
