Passionate, Jerry sounds like he is sining this as a desperate warning amidst a party that slowly catches on to the singers desertion and by the end..

Amazing as well played as any Dew in existence. The gargling broken glass lyrics add a Tom Waits feel to this powerful tune. Great Philly crowd response, a rather moving version.

Passionate Dew, love the intro out of space here, Around the 3:25 Jerry really starts dialing up the intensity. THis is a dynamic Audience recording. Tremendous extra effort on this song. Great under rat Halloween blow out. Give this some needed Love.

Delightful one of the best I have ever heard, triumphant Jerry solo. Ttruly spot on performance from a very underrated year. Great Dave's Pick's release. More 1980's shows PLEASE!
