My favorite of the year. Not the longest but it's just performed tight!

Night after top voted version and after sampling back to back I gotta go with this one, Jerry power riff galore to power home

Of course I love 12/28.not quite a top 5 for the year, but still strong. Love Ace's slide during outro. Delia whistled a different tune, what tune could that be? Bobby's slide. It is the perfect representation of the whistling widow.

I did cause of that sick Jerry riff at the end. If you listen to most Staggers from '78 lots of them are quite equal to 12/16. 5/12/79 is the best due to the blissful ~2 minute jam that wraps it up. I don't know the exact length but it's without question the longest Stagger outro. So psychedelic.

This is the band's best performance of this song and it's not even close. Screw 12/16/78.
