Masterclass from the Philzone here. He tears this one up.

Driven version. Purposeful, biting, and strong, with a high-tension wire energy. They meant business.

Jer sings thrôugh a cold, but the beauty and sweetness shines through. Sounds like he would 10 years later, but with the '78 sound. Full of love.

If you can get past the migraine-inducing AUD, this is one rowdy shitkicker that riles up the fun-loving crowd.

Smokin' hot encore to finish off one brilliant mother of a show. OMSN isn't many folk's fave tune, but this one just rocks hard.

Bird Song

Austin Municipal Auditorium

Cucamonga007: Just saw that you recommended this to me, and man oh man, thanks brother. It blazes and soars, no matter what DonnieMT has to say and kvetch about it. The musical confidence they bring to Bird Song at this stage in its development is unworldly. Consider that they're going to drop it from rotation a year later. What did they finish with it? This is a "clean" version, like the one on 26.09.72 that you've really got to check out if you want to discover an unknown gem that shouldn't be, rather than a Dark Starish sprawler. In any case, thanks again, man.

Fer G*d's sake, Heads: Listen to this now!

Jerry's solo is like a high-voltage cable cut loose and flailing wildly, arcing and dancing on the edge of crazy.

Glad to see this here. A hard-biting uptempo number with inspired adrenaline.

An uptempo, creative and melodic version. The outro solo ideas over the vamp are fresh and fun. Audience was in for a treat on this night....
