This show was a benefit for Tools for Peace and Justice in Central America and featured the first known performances of Hydrogen, Revolution, and McGrupp and the first known Phish performances of Big Leg Emma and Quinn the Eskimo. The jam after Slave may have been Back Porch Boogie Blues. The end of Mike's Song contained a vocal section with lyrics to the effect of "Life is not what it seems." Revolution was dedicated to Anne Labrusciano and Trey explained it used to be entitled "Leunig’s Sucks" but now it’s entitled “Revolution”. Run Like An Antelope was introduced by Trey as “Run Like an Antelope Out of Control”. McGrupp And The Watchful Hosemasters was narrated rather than sung. If the 2/1/85 setlist is not correct for that date, then this show featured the first known performances of Letter to Jimmy Page, Dave's Energy Guide, and Run Like an Antelope.

Review by Toast16

Toast16 This show was amazing!!
Early Phish at their greatest!!!! The quality of this show is amazing too!! And a TWO SONG SECOND SET!!! Holy Shit.
Let me start with the first set.

It starts out with an I AM HYDROGEN. What!!! To open a show!! I doubt you'll see stuff like that nowadays. And it was the debut of it too! WOW!!

Next is DON'T WANT YOU NO MORE. What an instrumental!! Page's playing is on point and I love the outro jam that the boys play after this one.

After that is CITIES. I love the Talking Heads, and I love Phish so this song is perfect. Trey's guitar is absolutely sublime on this one. Loving this shit so far.

Next is WILD CHILD. Wow! Phish covering Lou Reed!! Page is the real Wild Child on this song, as his playing is wonderful.
This is turning out to be the best first set I have ever listened to.

The song after that is SLAVE TO THE TRAFFIC LIGHT. Damn! I am turning into a slave to this band because this jam was so good, it rocked my socks off!!

Next is a JAM. Wow!! How often are Jams played? Well I just listened to a wonderful progressive one and it was a killer. The whole band is on point.

Next up is Alumni Blues. I was feeling sad because of the name but this song is amazing.

Then I fell asleep.

But you should get this. Best show of all time
