Set List

Show Notes

This was the second show of a 3-night stand. Before Slave To The Traffic Light, Trey dedicated the song and show to Del and Jim “fighting fires in the drought-ridden West, jumping out of helicopters On Acid. The “powerful pills” line in Fluffhead was replaced with “but I sure got Betty Davis Eyes”. Halley’s Comet featured Richard “Nancy” Wright on guest vocals. The Reggae Medley featured guest vocalist Jah Roy and included One Love, Stir it Up and Three Little Birds. After Whipping Post, Page announced the upcoming 6/24/88 show at Halvorsen’s. The set III setlist following Whipping Post may be incomplete or incorrect as it was adopted from fan sources and contains a repeat of Golgi, which is on the set II archives master and no doubt was not actually repeated during the show. For example, Possum, The Ballad Of Curtis Loew and David Bowie could be filler from 4/22/88 or the first three songs of set III could be from 6/21/88 III. Assuming the end set III material here is indeed from this show, then this show featured the 1st known performance of Satin Doll (Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn cover). Del Martin recorded this show as part of his work for Phish, but the tapes in the archives are just copies.
