Show Notes

This show was an Earth Day Concert at UVM. The setlist is exactly the same as 4/15/86 so one date is incorrect. Del Martin’s tape list calls this 4/29/86 but other setlists including phish.net and Amy Skelton’s list 4/15/86. Before AC/DC Bag, Trey introduced his dad (“all the way from NJ”). This show featured the 1st and only known Phish performance of All Blues (Miles Davis cover) surrounded by Trey’s banter about The Bob Dylan band. Dog Log was dedicated to all the dogs at the show including “Marley The Wonder Dog”. Anarchy was dedicated to Jim Tasse (Jones) who was leaving to play with The Joneses and Sierra at Slade Hall. Anarchy was performed three times at this show – first with the usual “Anarchy” lyric, then as “Jim Tasse” and finally as “Nazi Trustees” and “Killer African Bees”. Camel Walk was introduced as a disco song (imagine the disco ball). Also, according to Garrett Mead, Paul Paul the Banjo Man played two of his tunes solo: Rutabega Boogie and Life Gets Tedious. According to a recording circulated among fans, Trey’s father, Ernie Anastasio opened for Phish on banjo or ukelele with Trey performing 2 songs – Rutabega Boogie and Life Gets Tedious. This information does not match Garrett’s recollection of Paul Paul The Banjo Man and is considered legend until confirmed.
