Double Dip: Ride Captain Ride

Page tears it up during a cover of one-hit wonder Blues Image's Ride Captain Ride. As much as I dig Phish's version circa 1998, I stumbled across another cover that Blood Sweat & Tears recorded in 1976. Man, oh man! Not only did the BST's version include horns, but there's a killer solo from keyboardist Larry Willis. And yes, BST's lead singer, David Clayton Thomas, was the original hipster with a scruffy beard, graphic t-shirt, and a brown leisure suit.

So here's Blood Sweat and Tears covering Ride Captain Ride...



And now Phish's version of Ride Captain Ride...

He's no hipster... he's smiling and looks happy. Hipsters don't smile and certainly aren't happy.
