Notes: Humphries House had been a Zeta Upsilon ("Zu") frat house and monthly parties used to occur there that were referred to as "Full Moon at the Zoo" parties. Alumni contained a Possum tease. YEM was dedicated to Dionysian Productions co-founder John Paluska.  This was the first known complete version of Divided Sky, with a large section of it having previously been performed as the back half of No Dogs Allowed. Divided, Bowie, Fluffhead, and AC/DC Bag contained Sailor's Hornpipe teases. AC/DC Bag also contained London Bridge Is Falling Down, and the Flintstones theme teases. The third set was preceded by a First Noel tease. The second set listing might be incomplete, as the recordings that circulate cut into Bowie.

DemandOpener Everything in this show is very well played, and even better: The tape on Phishtracks has held up over time. It actually sounds better than almost anything else out there from the late 1980's, which is greatly appreciated.

There are some real gems to be found here, including the official debut of Divided Sky and a scorching Possum. Throw in a very cool Fee -> Sparks > Whipping Post, and you've got quite a show. Seriously, everything here is well played, and this is a great '88 show to listen to if you like a lot of covers, a fairly rowdy crowd, and snarling Trey guitar licks (and Theme from Popeye teases).

Bonus: AC/DC Bag is FUNKY and pretty funny with all the teases.

PhreeDomRider I really enjoyed listening to this show, A lot of good banter and page sings his ass off. Highlight for me was the Wilson>Peaches, La Grange. Beginning of wilson is slow and almost medieval sounding, if thats the right word, segue into Peaches is perfect.. never heard this before. Take the A train was also nice, and possums from the eighties/early nineties are awesome, seems like in 2013 they were making a comeback. Divided sky kept on rolling and had a popeye tease, maybe a few? (Apparently the first version to circulate) I would take a listen, again. fun show.
