Mockingbird included a Jeopardy! theme tease from Page. The intro to Antelope featured Old McDonald Had a Farm and Yakety Sax (the Benny Hill Show theme) teases. No Dogs Allowed was played for the first time since July 23, 1988 (132 shows) and was dedicated to Dave. I Didn't Know through Antelope featured Dave Grippo and Russ Remington on saxophone. I Didn't Know also featured Fish on trombone. SOAM had to be started a second time after the lights went out before the a cappella segment of the first attempt. Hood contained an Odd Couple theme tease from the horns. Swing Low was played for the first time since June 19, 1988 (149 shows). This was the first known performance of In a Hole, which included a tease of the Close Encounters of the Third Kind theme.

Review by Dressed_In_Gray

Dressed_In_Gray This was one of my earliest shows on tape, as I asked for shows with horns. Grippo and Remminton help to heat up the second set which includes some great Trey banter when they flub SOAM, a slick debut of In A Hole (which should instead be played every time Trey calls My Soul), and a hot Antelope.

Other reasons to pick up the show include the Harpua opener which, after the second chorus immediately cuts to Bundle Of Joy, and then right into Forbin. YEM has some fire, and Reba takes a leisurely pace as opposed to the breakneck meters found a decade later.

My favorite moment is at the end of the show when Trey, while introducing the horns, decides to rib The Jonny B Fishman Jazz Ensemble and their move from one bar to a Radisson hotel bar with 25 TVs on the wall. I just love to hear them give each other s#!t in the old days.

This is a great 80s show to pick up.

TheEmu I will add that the restart on Split Open and Melt is pretty damn funny.
