Phish – “Don’t Get Me Wrong” with John Popper (10/6/90)
Phish made their debut at the Capitol Theatre on October 6, 1990, opening for the (at the time) more established Blues Traveler. Phish delivered a typically goofy and segue-laden early 1.0 set, featuring a run from “The Squrming Coil” into “Dinner and a Movie,” concluding with “Bouncing Around the Room” early in the set. As expected, sit-ins were exchanged between both bands, with Trey sitting in on BT’s rendition of “Gloria”, and John Popper joining Phish for their encore, lending vocals and harmonica to the debut of their collaborative composition, “Don’t Get Me Wrong.” The tune was originally an additional section of Reba, coming between the lyrics and what fans commonly know to be the subsequent instrumental portion, dissected from its original home and graced with lyrics and a harmonica solo from Popper. The song was only ever performed on 2 other occasions, all with Popper and all occurring within the latter portion of 1990. The song has not been heard since.
