Played for “Sessions at West 54th,” a PBS series hosted by David Byrne (of Talking Heads). “Birds,” “Ghost,” and “Taste” were broadcast January 9, 1999 on the program, in addition to interviews with the band about fan taping and the Halloween musical costumes.


# Acoustic.
* Played (acoustic) while tapes were being changed; was not taped.
** Quasi-encore: Phish had finished their written setlist (though skipping “The Moma Dance,” which was on the list given to the cameramen) and had some time left (“Ghost” was only 10 minutes long). After a flood of audience requests (including many for Byrne to sit in), Trey said, “Okay, let’s just play Taste,” at Page’s suggestion.
