Full Show Friday | Phish Covers Whipping Post At Deer Creek

Phish's summer tour came to a close in 1999 with a pair of shows at Deer Creek in Noblesville, IN. The first of the two gigs, which took place 15 years today, featured one highlight after another as the band dug deep into their bag of tricks to fill the show with bust outs, stellar jams and humorous moments.

The first set started off innocently enough with "Meat" before Phish lit into the first "My Friend, My Friend" of the year. Out of "My Friend" came the instrumental "My Left Toe" off The Siket Disc and from there the band segued into their first Trey Anastasio- sung cover of "Whipping Post" by the Allman Brothers Band since 1990. Take a listen to the "Whipping Post" Phish laid down 15 years ago tonight:

There's plenty of other highlights from Phish's performance from July 25, 1999 including a fun take on "Makisupa Policeman" that turned into a celebration of LD Chris Kuroda's birthday, an insane uplifting jam out of "Birds Of A Feather" that leads into the year's first "Walk Away" and one of the most interesting versions of "Suzy Greenberg" since the song's 1987 debut. We can go on and on about the majesty of 7/25/99, but no words can beat listening to the show itself:
