Snarl + Fuzz = Sparks! Jerry hangs onto the Doooown vocals. Hot One!

Ramble On Rose
Jerry's voice is a little raspy, standard 1984, but this version has a sweet bounce to it and Boobys backing and brent's keys just lift this to great

Bertha
Lift off during Jerry's solo - maybe some celebratory barkers too before the show.
