Noteworthy Jams: You Enjoy Myself

Average Song Gap: 3.13

Performers: Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Jeff Holdsworth, Zenzile (Guest)

Notes: This show was an African National Congress Benefit featuring Phish and South African dub poet Zenzilé Madikinea. Antelope featured Jeff Holdsworth on slide guitar. Russ Flanagan sat in on fiddle for parts of this show. Alumni was played by request. Letter to Jimmy Page contained quotes from Trey of "It's alright" before eventually returning to Alumni. Some recordings erroneously note that this show was a double-bill with The Joneses. This show contained the first known version of You Enjoy Myself, although it is possible that the correct debut was on 2/1/85, and the first known performances of Zenzilé's pieces (all with Phish) Tonight, The Pendulum, Babylon is Burning, and Dec 1661. The first set of this show is identical to what is listed for 2/1/85. The setlist for 2/1/85 is possibly incorrect.

TheEmu Sound quality is pretty terrible, although the show on the whole is average to slightly below average. I guess the highlights for me would be a decent jam in Antelope and Prep School Hippie, which I haven't heard in ages. I also noticed that the beginning to Umphrey's McGee's "Divisions" sounds quite similar to the intro for Prep School Hippie heard here.

Anyhoo, that's about it. YEM has no shots at the note, no scream, no Boy Man God Shit, and no vocal jam. And DEG is...yeah, you know. This might edge towards three stars, but the overall sound quality is very poor and really takes a dump at one point, so I'll hold at two stars.

cjfphan21 Quality is pretty shitty and needs pitch correction BAD - it's mostly somewhere between a 4th and a 6th (yeah, that bad) sharp; it approaches unlistenable (i know it's not a word, get off my back) at times. Slave is just okay. Mike's is just okay too, jam could've developed into something much better, but it didn't. I don't even wanna talk about YEM, but it is the first known version. Antelope is slow. The quality of the recording almost makes me want to go 1 star because it's just that bad. However, I think the performance is a solid 2.5 and there is a lossless copy available on etree which could be slightly better than this mp3, though there aren't any notes on pitch correction. I'm gonna agree with @TheEmu on a 2 star rating.
