This show was a benefit for Tools for Peace and Justice in Central America and featured the first known performances of Hydrogen, Revolution, and McGrupp and the first known Phish performances of Big Leg Emma and Quinn the Eskimo. The jam after Slave may have been Back Porch Boogie Blues. The end of Mike's Song contained a vocal section with lyrics to the effect of "Life is not what it seems." Revolution was dedicated to Anne Labrusciano and Trey explained it used to be entitled "Leunig’s Sucks" but now it’s entitled “Revolution”. Run Like An Antelope was introduced by Trey as “Run Like an Antelope Out of Control”. McGrupp And The Watchful Hosemasters was narrated rather than sung. If the 2/1/85 setlist is not correct for that date, then this show featured the first known performances of Letter to Jimmy Page, Dave's Energy Guide, and Run Like an Antelope.
