Show Notes

This show was billed on band mailers as an “Outdoor Extravaganza” and on flyers as ”Last Show ‘Til Fall, An Outdoor Explosion With Phish”. The event was presented by Schleifer Productions and Dionysian Productions with $9 advance tickets or $11 at the door. Showtime was 2pm and coolers and camping were allowed. Stage announcements preceded the set III opener, La Grange. Ya Mar was dedicated to Heather Paul (brother of Dave Paul) on her birthday – Mike played a bit of Happy Birthday in the beginning of the song. Sometime between Contact and the beginning of Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, intense dancers reportedly broke the “stage flooring”. The soundboard tapes of this show have a variety of problems at the beginning of set I which resulted from a local taper, Steven Whittaker, aggressively unplugging tape decks and plugs. This ultimately led to a permanent ban on soundboard recordings. Good Times Bad Times was a second encore – the band left the stage and returned after Creature. The following day, the band retreated to a session at Wendell Studios in Massachusetts.
