How Sweet It Is
The only currently known GD version.

Bo Diddley
Definitive version with Bo Diddley. The whole set with him is pretty cool. DP 30.

Turn On Your Love Light
Pig takes the wheel on a wild ride through the funk dimension. "I know you got it hid away someplace, 'cuz I've been there before."

Playin' In The Band
Key moment in transforming PITB into a cosmic monster. 9.5 minutes of gooey goodness here. C.Miller's version is the best. Dig in boys.

Next Time You See Me
Nice extended jam on this one, with Pig driving the band to new heights.

Deal
Rippin’ good over the top exuberant delivery.

Bertha
Thumping Phil, driving Billy, SUBLIME Bobby work, Jerry drops a quick solo - sometimes it not always about Jerry’s jam - even tho it is ;)

Black Throated Wind
Another tasty version from a killer stand at the Academy. Bobby hot with the vocal drama.
