Keith's playing is sweeter than soda pop. Delicate tenderonies

Super peppy, flowing version - feels like a cool breeze on a hot summer day

Jerry's guitar tone and fluttering ramp up solo is spine tingles. Highly recommend!

Opens the show with serious energy. Perfect vocals and great balance of tightness, but bouncy playing. This whole first set is super crisp

Gorgeous, with an amazing swell at the end and a flawless transition into a monster TOO. Top shelf

Holy f*ck!! Phil hits an absolute moonshot with this. Completely takes over and guides the band into a purely blissful jam

I love the pacing in this. No rush, band is patient and offering turns for each other to shine. Always been a top version, personally. Dusted off again today and still a sweet moseying bluesy dander. Love it

Definitely worth listening to for the rhythmic oddity. I can't tell whether it was purposeful or just out of sync (I felt like the former, but not certain?). Worth it for something different, if nothing else

Very choice. I felt like this cracked my head open, then patiently melded it back together on a concerted listen.
