This Dew is so right in every way. If this version was the only one that you had ever heard, and would ever hear, you would be just fine...

This is unrivaled, early, primal brilliance. I feel like I'm in the room with the band. There is not one wasted moment here in 6 minutes, 25 seconds. Amen.

A simply perfect, raw, elemental version of this timeless, beautiful beast. Allerbeste qualität.

This is a special Candyman. Outstanding vocals and a very spare, wide-open sound to the playing. The archetypical version for this kind of version.

The early versions with Pigpen - lots of organ and tambourine - are the best, always. Ramshackle and raw, but exactly correct, this is one of the best, for sure.
