“Terrapin Station” – Phish – 8/9/1998 – Virginia Beach

Doc was in attendance when Phish debuted “Terrapin Station” under a full moon in Virginia Beach on 8/9/1998, the third anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s death.

The crowd’s reaction to the first signature guitar lick created crackling energy, which is palpable on quality recordings. Though Phish hasn’t revisited it since, Trey and Page played an extended “Terrapin” in their Phil Lesh & Friends engagement in April 1999, and Trey joined Phil again for a lovely Terrapin on 6/30/06 in Camden, NJ.
