China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Crystal clear version, not sure why it's been overlooked. Beautiful vocals, great recording, indicative of the transition sound of the era.

The vocals throughout this show are sublime. This is the era of three-part harmony. They were just so fresh, and every moment is a treat. Enjoy.
