Strong Phil and great vocals version. Just so tight throughout. Triumphant version as the pre-end-jam-era versions go.

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

Welcome to the most fanned out Franklin's ever people. Also agree with the level of space in this Slipknot. It really takes on a musical life of its own.

Jer is fired up with his delivery of these Scarlet verses and the band creates magic on this early version for this duo. Definitely a hidden gem version.

Winterland Arena

Wow. I missed this version all these years. This show may be most known for the Terrapin into Alhambra extended combination. But there is so much more including this insane NotFade. Think Cornell meets Englishtown. It's not singularly better than either but close to each and takes elements of both. it's real good stuff, and be prepared it's manic for sure.
