is the second official Slip Stitch and Pass live album by the American rock band Phish. It was released on October 28, 1997, by Elektra Records and has nine tracks from the band's March 1, 1997, show at the Markthalle Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany, which was part of Phish's 1997 European Tour.
Three of the album's nine songs are
cover songs: "Cities" from Talking Heads, "Jesus Just Left Chicago" from ZZ Top and the traditional standard "Hello My Baby". a cappella
In addition, during the final jam segment of "
Mike's Song", the band quotes (or 'teases') Pink Floyd's " Careful with That Axe, Eugene" and elements and lyrics from The Doors song " The End". The close of "Weekapaug Groove" interpolates the end section of the Rolling Stone's " Can't You Hear Me Knocking".
The jam on "Wolfman's Brother" is indicative of the band's foray into
funk music, which dominated the group's improvisation over the next several years. The song also includes a tease of the band's own instrumental tune "Dave’s Energy Guide."
