Riker's Mailbox


From Phish's album Hoist. This cut was made from outtakes of Jonathan Frakes (Riker on Next Generation) trying to play trombone for another of the songs on the album. It happened that Frakes lived next door to Phish's producer, and both of their houses were landmarked by his dented up cow-shaped mailbox. Phish knew Frakes played the trombone because of TNG, and asked their producer to ask him to play on the album they were working on. However, Frakes was unable to play the chart because it was out of his range as a player. Even so, the producer added this brief track to the album, and Frakes has a gold record on his wall because of it.
