1st version and Keith's 1st show. Jerry's voice is clear and full of meaning and remorse. Very beautiful.

Playin' In The Band
Massive transitional masterpiece. 1st with Keith, and he's the missing ingredient that tips PiTB over the edge into its full glory. Great mix.

Brokedown Palace
Stunning. Beautiful harmonies, strong pulse, Keith roars in like they know in advance what he brings. Show needs more love.

The Other One
Hard charging power here in 24 minutes of explosive dark matter. It's a massive oversight that this show hasn't been more widely appreciated.
