"In the summer of 1994, via a radio interview, Phish announced that they would take votes from phans about what album to play for the second set of Halloween of that year. The Beatles' White Album won by a long shot, though with only circa 50 votes (and there were reportedly very few votes overall).
The voting was repeated but fudged for 1995: Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage got the most votes, but with insanely complex overdubs, potentially offensive lyrics, and several tunes (esp. Watermelon in Easter Hay) that Zappa had requested never be performed live again, the band (after learning a considerable amount of it) decided they just couldn't make it sound like it should and chose to instead play Quadrophenia (which reportedly came in second in the voting)."

Around 2004, Phish released their 1994/12/01 concert in their "Live Phish Downloads" series. This concert features Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'. As the title suggests, these albums can only be bought and downloaded on the internet.

November 2007, "Vegas 96" got released. This 3 CD-set was available as download and on regular CD. The album included Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'.

July 2011, two more Phish shows that featured Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia' were offered for sale through the "Live Phish Download" series. The albums were made available as mp3, FLAC and as CDR.
June 2012, the 2012/06/22 Cincinnati show was offered for sale through the "Live Phish Download" series. This show also included Frank Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'. 

May 2016, another Live Phish album included FZ's 'Peaches En Regalia' : "Sep 14, 1999, Boise State University Pavillion".

random notes

     From: john habib

Phish has performed Peaches about 60 times in their 15 year/1000 documented live show history. I also know that they did Big Leg Emma twice in 1987. Exact show info can be obtained from the Helping Phriendly Book (fan-compiled set lists and reviews) portion of www.phish.net
Members of Phish have talked about Zappa repeateadly in various interviews.In a nutshell, he's one of Trey's favorite guitarists and drummer Jon Fishman is also a Zappa-phile. There is a page about the relationship b/w Phish and Frank's music in Phish's own The Phish Book (published a few years ago).
