Alive in Eighty Five — also known as Alive in '85 — is an album by the rock band Kingfish.[2][3] It was recorded at Sweetwater in Mill Valley, California in 1985, and released by Relix Records as a vinyl LP later that year. It was released on CD in 1991.

It is unclear whether or not Alive in Eighty Five was recorded live in concert. Although Sweetwater was a live music venue, the album sounds like a studio recording.[1]
