SET 3: Roll Like a Cantaloupe, Sanity, Anarchy
This show contained the first known versions of many Phish songs, including Lushington, Shaggy Dog, Roll Like a Cantaloupe, Sanity, and Clod, as well as the first known Phish versions of Skin It Back, Peaches, Swing Low, and Mustang Sally. Shaggy Dog ended with a Magic quote. Before YEM, Page played cocktail-style jazz, including snippets of Misty while Trey tuned up. Trey teased The Gumbo Variations in Mike's Song. The third set listing is incomplete; recordings that circulate have cuts before Cantaloupe. The Clod encore began with an impromptu kazoo solo from Mike. This was Paul Languedoc’s first show as soundman.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by DollarBill
Skin it Back is great. McGrupp is still spoken like a poem. The old intro to AC/DC, YEM doesn't have its signature opening riff yet, Lushington is great.
Great second set, Peaches, early Golgi, Swing Low is good. They kept Camel Walk, which is awesome. Shaggy was played full on. Two types of Sally’s, the old style Fluff is weird to hear for me. Early Wilson and potential magic on Slave join some Mike's and a Hood for a great back end.
And if all that isn't enough reasons to listen, for the love of Paul, you've got to hear the Cantaloupe, Sanity, Anarchy combo!!! A smooth Clod to finish up too was great to hear, having not heard very many of them myself.
I've been reading one of their bio books and just decided to jump into a little '86 for the hell of it and boy am I glad I did.
