By Jeremy Hammond:
My acoustic cover of “Back on the Train” by Phish, from the Farmhouse album. I intend to go back and overlay another track for the solos, but here’s the “single take” version with just rhythm and vocals.
** EDITOR’S NOTE: **
For Jeremy’s third Guest Session contribution, he has brought yet another new band to the Laptop Sessions cover song music video blog. Somehow, Phish have slipped by these past couple years without ever being acknowledged by the Laptop Sessions crew.
As per usual, this is a great video of an upbeat performance — Jeremy’s vocals are beautifully authentic to Trey Anastasio’s original lead. And, of course, the chords sound quirky and, again, perfectly authentic to the Farmhouse track. Farmhouse was their final record before they announced a hiatus, even if they have gone on to release new discs at a steady pace since then, including this year’s most recent Phish album, Joy.
