Lickety split drummer precision here and a stylin' strut in the heart of a great 2nd set.

Solid shitkicker. "As usual, dedicated to our equipment crew". Lol, Bobby.

Sweet slow buildup to an explosion of emotion and Jer's flying guitar work. A strong version.

Powerful version. Is the only reason it's not yet here because only AUDs exist? Jeez Heads, get it together!

The Devils take this one to the races. The whole set is one colossal jam after another.

The jam out of this is so good. It sounds like half the band is playing Playin' and the other half is playing The Other One. Could some one with better ears than mine tell me if that's right? Are they jamming 6/8 over 10/4 for a patch? Wild.

Like the Playin' in this epic 2nd set, this TOO is more fired up and heavy than a lot of the other '76 versions. I think it captures the pre-hiatus danger and hard rock sound (like the Playin' too). Maybe the presence of The Who inspired them to put more firepower on their set? Who knows, but they were rockin' it with ferocious intensity here.

Dick knew what he was doing by including the 10th in DP33, because this whole show is just bonkers good. I think the 10th's first set is genuinely better than the 9ths, but the second set is just amazing. This Playin'>Drums>Wheel>Drums>TOO>Stella>Playin' is as outrageous a set as you're going to find. Love this Wheel.

Agreed with the above comment, and this one seems to capture that '73 meltdown wildness in a 'lightning in a bottle' concision that makes this one arguably the best Playin' of '76.
