|Original Album||The Natch'l Blues (1968)|
Phish performed this blues number on four known occasions through 1988 (12/6/86, 4/29/87, 8/29/87 and 7/30/88). After eleven years and over one thousand shows , Phish broke-out “She Caught the Katy” at the Desert Sky Pavilion in Phoenix on 7/21/98. This funked-out version flowed out of a very strong “Ghost” at the end of the second set, and segued into “Funky Bitch” (a notable ending to the show, with Mike singing the last two numbers). It would take another 323 concerts before “She Caught the Katy” would once again see the Phish stage. This time, on 12/28/10, during the second of two nights in Worcester, MA.Phish, “She Caught the Katy and Left Me a Mule to Ride” – 12/28/10, Worcester, MA
