|Original Album||Glitter (1972)|
Gary Glitter's radio mega-hit is one of the ultimate audience-participation songs in rock history, and it was only a matter of time before Phish decided to capitalize on its interactive possibilities. The tune was performed as a show opener on 11/20/98 at the Hampton Coliseum, and the crowd was ever so happy to offer up some “Heys” in the appropriate places, completing the call and response requirements of the song. Though this audience factor is not very audible on the Hampton Comes Alive recording of the song, audience tapes reveal the thousands of fans’ contributions in all their Pavlovian glory.

And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
