The band builds it up beautifully to the "Won't you tell everyone you meet" verse.

Excellent bridge. The band extends and extends and never loses their way. Very heady version.

Talking about a Fire on the mountain. So Jer says near the end of this Fire. I love the bass solo that leads them into the bridge between songs. Smooth. Ahhhh yes people 1977, introducing the world to this sick duo. You gotta love it!

If just only for the mid-song solo alone this one deserves more love. Jer's solo is so chocked full of 77 goodness. It goes further than many before or after.

Jerry digs into several part of his solos in such '77 kind of way. There is a lot of "wow" to be had.
