Phish Live in Concert

The Beatles on Apple Records, Bruce Spizer (©2003  498 Productions, LLC)

Artist: Phish
Recorded: 31 October 1994
Location: Glens Falls Civic Center | Glens Falls NY
Time: 01:28:34

Recorded live at the Glens Falls Civic Center in Glens Falls, New York on Halloween night 1994. This concert marked the first of four Halloween shows in which Phish dressed up in a musical costume and performed an album from another artist in its entirety. The band took votes from fans on its website, leading to a complete performance of the 30-song, self-titled Beatles classic also known as The White Album.

The album’s final number, Good Night, is not included on this release, as it was not actually played by Phish, but rather the studio recording was played over the PA at the conclusion of the set. They sandwiched this performance in between two sets of their own music.

Phish took few liberties in covering the album with the exception of Don’t Pass Me By and Birthday. Don’t Pass Me By was played in double-time while Birthday was slowed down and played in a minor key without lyrics as the band presented a birthday cake on stage to Phish road manager Brad Sands. The concert began at 7:30 p.m. and ended at 3:20 a.m. – the longest Phish concert up to that point.
