Powerful stadium-sized blast of Dylan. This one just clicks along almost perfectly. Brent's B3 solo just rips...

Great LL Rain from my first show. Some "thunder" audio weirdness (Healy?) makes this one unique. Nice raindrop notes fom Jerry at the climax, too.

Nicely stretched out, mellow version from Summer '80. This one has some righteous peaks and I love Brent's B3 sound here.

This is the one. Jerry shows what he learned from Janis vocally on this one. Just dripping with emotion.

This is just a monster version. The boys are finally clickin' on all cylinders on this scorching afternoon. Every member really shines.

Insane version with a sick piano solo by Brent. This whole set is super high-energy!
