Another tasty version from a killer stand at the Academy. Bobby hot with the vocal drama.

Thumping Phil, driving Billy, SUBLIME Bobby work, Jerry drops a quick solo - sometimes it not always about Jerry’s jam - even tho it is ;)

In a brokedown palace in a brokedown city that was hot as fuck...this whole rendition is KILLER but everything locks into place for me at 6:35 when the band starts getting super juicy while Jerry goes junkyard dog until the 9:10 mark. then JG re-engages with the nasty at around 11:10 to pummel the heads one more time.... so good so good. The last late great show I saw on the East coast before I headed to Cali. Well worth checking out the Crimson White & Indigo video to see how much fun Jerry in particular was having at this show. PS. Major flashback and memory after reading an archive review how the band mic'd the crowd and played back the recordings during intermission - wow- wow- wow wow what a fucking memory for this dosed kid back in the day I remember when we caught on to it....:) it was a later day acid test in the rubble.

Still believe this is one of the best unheralded versions of this tune...worthy of listens and votes.
