Set List

Show Notes

This was the first show of a 3-night stand. The setlist is unconfirmed and incomplete. Fish broke his snare drum during Weekapaug Groove and he tried to repair it until the band launched into some “brain” interplay to introduce the 1st known performance of If I Only Had A Brain (Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg cover), which included a trombone solo. Trey introduced Alumni Blues by saying “Fish will now perform the next number with a broken snare drum” and Mike added “a new-formed timbale.” During the pause in Letter To Jimmy Page, Phish and a local band called Eyeburn (Sofi Dillof, Joe, and sometimes Ninja Mike on drums) traded off punk rock jams.
