Whole lot of fun here. Sounds like they meant it on this one. Closes out a great first set.

Jerry and Keith are just on fire behind the beautiful vocal duet. This show is underappreciated. Give it a spin....

Always preferred the fast ones, but listening to Jerry rip up the solos here and it makes sense. Killer version here (with a rude AUD patch though).

Has a crisp and tight disco shuffle prefiguring the '77 sound. Jerry's solo fills are precise and brilliant. Donna's harmonies are as sweet as ever.

Nice on its own, and brilliant as part of a great PITB-SS-Wheel-PITB sandwich. You can hear the fun their having. Short but sweet.

Catches onto a powerful pulse around 7:30 in as they head to the outro. Seems like they sped up a bit from the beginning to the end, but that might just be me.
The Music Never Stopped

Closes out a perfect first set. The drummers are a psychic octopus of tight grooveness, Donna sounds as good as she ever did, and Jerry floats idea after idea and kisses everyone right smack on the third eye. Just brilliant monster mash from Keith too. What fun.

Phil swoops, Donna and Keith soar, the drummers are in perfect mindmeld and Jerry does what Jerry does. This is as fun as it gets with the great Scarlet solo pieces before she met her FTM life partner.

A perfect version. Everything about this one is solid. The show the next night gets all the attention, but this set on the 28th is just beautiful.
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower

This suite cooks from the first notes. The Slipknot is the stuff of legend, and the Keith-Jerry interaction in Franklin's is just brilliant. Just when you think the energy is petering out Keith heats it back up. The whole thing feels like a pot of water simmering just under the boil: Thousands of happy little bubbles just ready to go.
