Full Show Friday | Phish Covers Little Feat On Halloween

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, NJ. The band donned the musical costume of Little Feat's Waiting for Columbus as the second set.

The Vermonters kicked off their Halloween show with the fitting "Frankenstein" featuring keyboardist Page McConnell on keytar. Following the spooky "Big Black Furry Creatures From Mars," the quartet kept things rolling with an outstanding "Ghost" -> "Spooky" segment. When Phish came out for the second set they were joined by percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo, who would guest on the entire Waiting for Columbus set. The horn section of Aaron Johnson, Stuart Bogie, Ian Hendrickson, Michael Leonhart and Eric Biondo augmented the group at various points of the Little Feat tribute. Phish nailed most of the Waiting for Columbus selections with "Time Loves A Hero" > "Day Or Night," "Spanish Moon" and "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."
