This was Phish's third performance and 1st headline show at Jones Beach, an uncovered amphitheater set on the water inside Jones Beach State Park with a capacity of 10,800. Reserved tickets were $19.50. The soundcheck featured The Dude of LIfe on vocals for Crimes Of The Mind, which was practiced a few times but never played during the show. Trey performed The Horse on acoustic guitar. It's Ice featured Trey and Mike "skating" on their Slide Board Balance Trainers. Lawn Boy included some scatting from Page. Faht's sound effects segued directly into the beginning of My Friend My Friend, which Trey played on acoustic guitar. You Enjoy Myself was performed without a vocal jam, instead the (pre-vocal) jam developed into Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, which contained teases of The Flintstones Theme. Chalk Dust Torture contained teases of Crimes Of The Mind, but The Dude was never brought. Amazing Grace was performed with microphones. While there is no evidence it was recognized at the time, this is believed to have been the band's 800th show.
