Every year, for its annual Halloween show, Phish covers a classic album in its entirety — the musical equivalent of donning a costume. What will it be this year?
Past shows have featured The White Album by the Beatles, Quadraphenia by The Who, and last year’s choice, Exile on Main Street by The Rolling Stones.
“This year,” Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio said, “this one’s for me. The one we picked, I’m going to get more out of this as a musician than I ever have before. Three songs into it, I called everybody and told them, ‘None of the other ones – I wouldn’t think, hopefully – will have nearly the effect on my playing this one’s going to.’ ”
Guesses, guesses, anyone?
