A non-Phish extra:

The Who - "Pictures of Lily" studio session (1967)

Very rare footage of the band rehearsing the harmony vocals for their classic single "Pictures Of Lily". Note the rather primitive recording technology of the day required the vocals be done simultaneously, while today they would probably be overdubbed one at a time.

Keith Moon recording "Pictures Of Lily"

Believe it or not, most of us still do it old-school in order to catch the feel of the moment. The lead vox gets laid down and then we gather around an omni-directional mic and sing it choir-style. It's just a better sound and feel even though the ProTools set-up does allow for singing the parts solo and even doubling them up. It's just too cold and insincere for my taste.

Don't even get me started on those pitch-correcting programs.

The Who -- "Bucket T" (1966)

Rare Dutch TV film footage of the boys laying down vocals on this Jan & Dean cover, with Keith Moon valiantly attempting to sing lead
