Also, the second set was preceded by recorded Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' and Thriller teases from Michael Jackson's Thriller album. The second set "musical costume" was The Who's Quadrophenia and was performed with Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on trombone, Joey Sommerville on trumpet and Alan Parshley on French horn. During Bell Boy, crew member Leigh Fordham, clad in a bell boy outfit, sang Keith Moon’s original part. All of the Quadrophenia songs, as well as My Generation, were Phish debuts. YEM was almost 40 minutes long, contained teases from Trey of The Real Me and DEG, and was preceded by the audience chess move. The chosen fan, dressed as a Wookiee, cracked under the pressure and could not choose a move on stage, prompting a quote from Fish that “Wookiees can’t play chess.” The Rock was teased after the failed move. Jesus Just Left Chicago featured Grippo on alto saxophone; Suzy Greenberg featured Grippo, Glasgo and Somerville. My Generation was performed acoustic. Before My Generation, the crew set up a Keith Moon replica drum set on stage. After the song, Fish and Trey destroyed the drum set a la The Who. Finally, a stagehand brought out a large plunger.

The Mind Left Body Jam's melodic theme (like the MLB theme from Grateful Dead jams) bears a striking resemblance to Marvin Gaye's and Tammi Terrell's You're All I Need To Get By. Bowie (after the MLB Jam) included Three Blind Mice, Dave's Energy Guide, Voodoo Child, and Purple Haze teases.

This show was released as part of the Chicago '94 box set.

This performance was on Danny Bonaduce's radio show on WLUP 97.9 FM before Phish's concert that evening at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL. Sweet Adeline was preceded by a eight second rendition of I Woke Up in Love and followed by a nine second version of Point Me in the Direction of Albuquerque. Both I Woke Up and Point Me were sung to the tune of Back in my Hometown and were a bit of a Phish joke on Bonaduce as they were both songs from The Partridge Family. Dog Faced Boy was performed acoustic. This performance might be incomplete as the interview after Dog Faced Boy is cut.

During Daniel Saw the Stone, Trey updated the crowd on the score of a pre-season football game. YEM contained brief jams based on the theme from Speed Racer, Smoke on the Water, and quoting of Mystery Achievement (Pretenders). On Broadway was briefly quoted during the YEM vocal jam. This show was officially released as Live Phish 07.


Melt contained an 1812 Overture tease from Mike and a Jean Pierre tease from Trey. The beginning of My Friend featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Chalk Dust contained a Simpsons signal.

Maze contained Miss You teases from Trey and Mike’s Song included a Miss You jam. Funky Bitch through Cavern featured Sugar Blue on harmonica. Sugar Blue also sang vocals on the Phish debuts of Help Me and Hoochie Coochie Man.

The Jam after Poor Heart was played while Trey fixed a guitar string. It only featured Mike, Page, and Fish and was preceded by Mike dedicating the jam to a few people that had come a long way to see Phish play: Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk, and Fred Lynn. This set was an opener for Santana.  

Both Mockingbird and Stash referenced the Los Angeles riots that ensued after the Rodney King verdict was announced. During Icculus, Trey extolled the virtues of the Helping Friendly Book and remarked jokingly that The Aquarium Rescue Unit “used to be a feeble bluegrass band until they read this great book!” Glide was a birthday dedication. Coil included a DEG tease. Bowie included Will the Circle Be Unbroken?, Get Back, Aw Fuck!, All Fall Down, Up Up and Away, Random Laugh, and Oom Pa Pa signals, as well as the return of the Band/Crew Football Theme Song (first since April 16, 1991, or 125 shows). Bowie also included Miss Gulch / Witch's theme teases. YEM included a strong Don’t Get Me Wrong tease. BBFCFM featured some zany on-stage antics that found Trey on top of his stack and Mike singing from down on the floor. The Aquarium Rescue Unit was the opening act.
