|1988-07-23||Jam||Underhill, VT||5:26||A really good and rocking stand-alone jam opens the show. Almost has an Allman Brothers or Grateful Dead-like vibe.|
|1988-07-23||Mike's||Underhill, VT||8:43||With an unknown percussionist, there's a cool little intro section. The jam is really the first version that starts to sound similar to the modern "Mike's" jam. There's decent improvisation within the jam section, as well as a nice spirited peak leading to the closing.|
|1988-07-23||Weekapaug||Underhill, VT||6:36||Debut. First version is played at a slightly slower tempo and includes an additional, unknown percussionist. Nice Trey shredding on the first go around, plus a "Mike's Song" vocal refrain and jazzy ending.|
|1988-07-23||Possum||Underhill, VT||8:29||Unknown additional percussionist. The jam begins in a low-key manner, with nice added texture from the percussionist.|
|1988-07-23||Curtain With||Underhill, VT||16:55||An unprecedented and highly improvisational version, which includes an unknown additional percussionist. Following a strong run through The Curtain section, the band breaks into the familiar With jam. However, this jam quickly takes on a more dissonant and frenetic character, with "DEG"-like undertones, although it retains some semblance of With through about the 15:00 mark. After this point, the band breaks for "DEG," followed by some abstract and crazed jamming, a testament to the band's nascent improvisational nature. Eventually, the playing returns to the customary With ending.|
|1988-07-23||DEG||Underhill, VT||3:30||With an additional percussionist. -> in from "The Curtain With." Includes both "DEG" and a lot dissonant, "DEG"-like jamming that makes up a good chunk of this unique, jammed-out version of the "The Curtain With."|
|1988-07-23||Curtain With||Underhill, VT||0:44||-> in from "Dave's Energy Guide" to wrap up this stunning, improvisational version.|
|1988-07-23||Hood||Underhill, VT||13:32||Great version with strong communication and interplay among the four band mates. This one really lifts off after 10:30.|
|1988-07-23||Slave||Underhill, VT||9:20||Great quiet interplay at first between Trey, Mike, and Page. Then at 5:15, Pete Danforth kicks in on saxophone, and the result is a super and unexpected combination, with an impressive and fiery peak.|
