S01E05: The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday


1987 03-23 Brlington, VT (Nectar's)
  • Page is noticeably way up in the mix compared to other recordings from this era, particularly during "Mike's Song," really kind of 'sparring with Trey'

1987 04-29 Burlington, VT (Nectar's)
1987 08-21 Hebron, NY (Ian McClean's Farm)
  • Was THE tape to have from that period
  • Again, notice all the dogs barking
  • Trey's tone on "Funky Bitch" makes him sound like a 'serious guitarist'
  • Might be first performance using the first Languedoc guitar
  • "Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" shows focus on more composed covers, getting away from The Dead and Allmans

1988 03-12 Burlington, VT (Nectar's)
  • First Gamehendge performance
  • John Paluska's intro to the band, just happened to walk in that night
  • Zappa played that night in Burlington, likely the entire band attended that show before performing
  • Dubbed 'Storytime at Nectar's'
  • Debut of "Tela" and "Forbin's"

1988 05-24 Burlington, VT (Nectar's)
  • Set 2 is an hour long with just three songs, ending with a crazy "Whipping Post"
  • Another great example of the jamming of this time

1988 07-23 Underhill, VT (Pete's Phabulous Phish Phest)
  • They actually open with a jam that we would now consider a type-2 jam
