Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
I love this version, nice and loose; west coast

favorite version ever/ check out phil soloing during and throughout
2
Space
Think of a little gnome running through the woods.
4
Loser
Jerry's face-melting solo....
3
Uncle John's Band
Extremely powerful version, especially for a west coast, afternoon show! Not perfect, but pretty underrated, and the last time I got to see Brent :(
2
Loose Lucy
Sweet, powerful latter-day version on a hot afternoon on the soccer field at Cal State.
2
Queen Jane Approximately
deeply mellow queen jane in the heat!
2
Franklin's Tower
If you like listening to Jerry play then you'll like this Franklins, straightens out a somewhat sloppy start of the show!
3
Truckin'
This is just a monster version. The boys are finally clickin' on all cylinders on this scorching afternoon. Every member really shines.

Dear Mr. Fantasy
There are surprisingly few really great versions of this tune, and this is one of them. Jerry takes his time, layering burning, melodic phrases.
