Airplay perfect. Seems like they wanted to pick up the pace a bit and this one is just fine and dandy.

Muscular and confident, not at all dragging. Don't overlook it. It's brilliant and perfect coming in a blazingly good show and great 2nd set.

This one cooks. Keith puts on a master class of the old razzle dazzle.

I'm going to put this one above Merriweather for Brent bringing on the funk, Bobby's tweaking wah, and just how much it brought me back to what was probably the first Dead song I ever knew by name.

This one swings with great purpose. It builds up and up, and blows up with a nice smooth climax.

Philzone nirvana here. At a couple of points it almost sounds like he's forcing the band into a Supplication jam that never quite coagulates. Other than that, this confirms my hypothesis that the man has ten fingers on each hand. What a monster musician!

I agree that that the Devils make this one special. It has that amped up and kicking on top of the beat feel of the speedy early 80s versions. The segue is smoother than "proper" sounding like a DJ blending two tracks as much as a typical GD transition.

Jerry and Donna like a choir of angels on this one.
