On the final night of a memorable three-show run in Worcester, Phish dipped into the repertoire of classic blues rock and drummer Buddy Miles, performing his best known 1970 hit “Them Changes.” Buddy Miles is perhaps best remembered by his stint in the late 1960s as the drummer with the Jimi Hendrix-led Band of Gypsys. “Them Changes” provided the title track for Buddy’s first solo album, but it is far better known for having appeared on the immensely popular Jimi Hendrix album Band of Gypsys. The single performance of “Them Changes” on 11/30/97 saw Page shine on vocals, and Trey engage in a particularly inspired solo. Closely resembling the live Jimi Hendrix-led versions, “Them Changes” seemed a perfect fit for Phish, but they have thus far shelved the song after this single appearance.

While Phish seems content with their one performance of the song, “Them Changes” re-emerged in the repertoire of Oysterhead; they performed the tune five times on their fall 2001 tour, each time during the encore. Before Oysterhead’s debut performance of the song on 10/24/01, Trey noted that Band of Gypsys is one of his all-time favorite “power trio” albums.

Well my mind is goin' through them changes
I feel just like i'm in the time
Every time you see me goin' somewhere
I think i'm going out of my mind, yeah
Oh, my baby she left me the other day
and we were have so much fun yeah, yeah
Oh, my baby she stepped out on me
and that's the reason why she had to run

It's alright yeah yeah
It's alright
What i say
It's alright
Ooo hooo!

Well my mind is goin' through them changes
I feel like i'm goin' out of my mind
Every time you see me goin' somewhere
I think i could commit a crime now
She had me runnin'
She had me cryin'
She had me runnin'
She had me had me had me cryin'
She had me runnin'
She had me cryin'
She had me runnin'
She had me cryin'
