Not only does the horn section of Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on trombone, Joey Sommerville on trumpet and Alan Parshley on French horn do a superb job with “5:15,” but Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio laid down one of his most frenetic and impressive straight-on solos during the band’s lone take on the classic Who tune. Considering how well Phish did with “5:15,” it’s a little surprising the quartet never played the song again, though it just wouldn’t be the same without the horns.
The Who released “5:15” as a single in 1973 and it shot up to #20 on the U.K. charts. “5:15” focuses on the Quadrophenia main character of Jimmy’s train ride to Brighton and includes the self-referential nod of “M-m-my generation” to The Who’s breakthrough 1965 hit.
