The Boys are having fun...great vocal interplay...good times, great bass.
7Let It Grow
Played at break-neck speed. Has Jerry ever played faster? Phil releases full chordal bombs
2They Love Each Other
A fantastic version from a fantastic show!
7West L.A. Fadeaway
A standout version from a great show.
1It Must Have Been The Roses
The crowd reaction to the first few notes earns it a spot on the list.
2Maybe You Know
First set version of the rare Brent tune, last version before the "meltdown version" 3 years later.
Meaty version out of space with some nice vocal improvisations by Bobby and a killer epilogue jam which flows beautifully into a quick NBF Jam

WOw can not believe this is not here this is truly amazing the slipknot is possibly the best of the 80's tremendous,Help is 5* and FT peaks many times
Jerry + Brent Throw Down - Tasty

Perfect Early 80's version - This one's FULL OF PHIL walks and nice Brent color.
