Link Space Antelope, Tuesday, 12/07/1982
The Taft School, Watertown, CT

Set 1: Lifespace > All Along the Watchtower, Franklin's Tower, Goin' Down the Road, Hemispheres, Wild Child, Jam, Walk on the Wild Side

Notes: This list is likely incomplete, and the date may be incorrect. This is the only show by Space Antelope documented by a recording in circulation, though there were likely other gigs. The Jam that preceded "Walk on the Wild Side" contained part of what would become the "Arrival" segment of "Fluff's Travels."

Musicians: Trey Anastasio, Steve Pollak ("The Dude of Life"), Dud Taft, Doug Parsons, Rob "Flash" Gordon

GratephulPhan An amazingly crisp recording of this show circulates on the spreadsheet. My personal highlights are Franklin's Tower which starts off a bit abnormally. Wild Child, I just love this song. And the "Jam" is really an ambient jam that turns into DEG and eventually Fluff's Travels, a short track but pretty awesome.

Being that this is such an early show and so raw, its a nice little recording and interesting to hear Trey's talent at such a young age.
Score: 3
