"Layla" is the only Eric Clapton-penned song that Phish has performed in its entirety (though Trey did play “Bell Bottom Blues” on his May, 1999 solo tour). Though it had been teased before (see, for example, the “Suzy Greenberg” from 5/13/94), it took a guest appearance by blues guitarist Seth Yacovone on 11/29/98 to make the whole song come to life for Phish. Given the textured dual-guitar sound of the original, it’s not surprising that “Layla” was a one-time concert treat. 

Submit notes/corrections is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
