This show featured the first known Phish performances of Mr. P.C. and Maiden Voyage. Fish missed the first two sets of the gig, prompting the band to play two sets of jazz and standard Phish material in his absence with Trey on drums. These opening sets are sometimes referred to as “Jazz Odyssey,” as the lone known taper labeled his master tapes as such. All Blues was played for the first time since April 15, 1986 (110 shows). During Antelope, Trey told the story of what happened to Fish that evening and explained that Fish, who had been at the top of a mountain and, therefore, late for the gig, had to “Run like an Antelope, out of control.” Elsewhere in the set, Trey chided Fish for his tardiness. The narration in Harpua was straightforward, with no teases. Anarchy was jokingly named Whipping Post. Terrapin featured a Fish trombone solo. Many recordings of this show in circulation have the venue mislabeled as Fly Me to the Moon Saloon.
