Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1985 Tour."
Mike's Song and Antelope (especially) are also both starting to take shape here, and it's definitely an interesting thing to hear for yourself if you're a big fan of either of those songs. Alumni is solid as always, especially as it becomes a staple for the band, and this version of McGrupp is definitely a standout in this set.
Mike's as some great soloing from Trey but still in infantile form
Revolution and Anarchy are good for a laugh
Antelope is definitely getting more fleshed out
McGrupp is also coming into its own and does indeed have an enjoyable, if fairly forgettable, open ended jam.
Take it or leave it, nothing essential in this show
