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.

Love this one. Extended intro with heavy jamming throughout.

Philheads unite on this date. Phil in a dominant bass chord mode on this version. This is a loosey goosey version, where you really don't know which direction it will go. It is worth many repeat listens, especially for the Phil fan.

Man o' man the Intro is so smooth. Then the outro jam is trippy and very unique. It does sound like Jer on cid. You don't know where it's going - maybe O1? - then flows nicely to drums and then into a very good Samson. The He's Gone versus are also just exactly perfect.

I pulled together that opinion fom other forums I suppose. Either way great tune and an awesome version.
