An electric version, raunchy and cool. Unlike any other version.

I Know You Rider
Get's the introduction of "This is a famous old folk song" Early version of a tune they would make classic. Great historical performance.

Beat it on Down The Line
Maniacal with unreal energy levels. Jerry and Pigpen take the jam to spiraling dizzying levels, real cool and rapid paced masterful performance.
