Yes this is completely underrated! Really well played and that transition from LS>SoC well it is just OH MY

Gorgeous... Jer's solo at the 7 minute mark tears open the stars and gives us a glimpse that choir of angels, bending their ears just to hear the magic... also worth noting that Phil sets a slightly slower tempo to give this one a little extra groove juice!!!

A bright spot in a first set that is honestly a pretty tough listen. Phil's voice sound sweet and serene here, and Jerry's playing adds nice flourishes to a pretty tune.

I can't believe this one's not on here. It's so laid back, it's like floating on the ocean as gentle wave after gentle wave take you up and down, while the warm sun shines down on your cool body. You hit a stride and you hope it never ends, you can just float here for hours, but then it goes flawlessly into TOO and you're so glad it does. Yall check this out, make sure you hear Seamon's matrix

Underrated, go check out the recording on Hunter Seamons' matrix. Sugary sweet, you can hear how the solo is making its way toward the monsters that we got in 1980. Really nice transition into Lost Sailor, too. Great stuff here, check it out
