Lift off during Jerry's solo - maybe some celebratory barkers too before the show.

'71 Losers are the raw, real deal. Biting, snakey leads with a despaired vocal delivery.

Crooning, crunchy, cranky, springy, thumpy, distorted, awesomeness - killer this one is. Jer's vocal work is top notch.

Yeah very different and at 6:50 mark sounds like Jerry references another song's melody that some here might know - cool stuff. +1

Some tape chaw on the sbd but it does not get in the way of the fine little nugget of kickass jam.

Just listen to the drum intro and you will know that this shapes up into a killer '71 NFA .... nicely stretched out jamming into GDRFB that is the tits. And indeed Phil bombs his bass cabinet at the end of the reprise and an entire block of the Bronx went dark.
