Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
Feb. 26, 1977
They drag and splatter the Help a bit, and just imagine the fear in your heart if your band doesn't get it together before the knuckle-busting Slipknot! comes along. It's one of the most challenging pieces of music they ever performed, and even the finest band in the land tended to spin out. Well it seems that right on that cowbell cue they tightened right up. Best Slipknot! ever? I can't say with certainty, but it's up there: Jerry's fuzzy sky-saw buzztone makes its extra spacey and cool. It isn't the fastest or tightest, but it's one of the most interesting for sure.
