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

Rarely post on a MAMU, but this one really pops! Super nimble guitar work. Excelent

Rare that you see a comment that just says "garbage" without any justification. This show is one of the few that I go back to from '95, so I listened to this version again with a critical ear. To me, the boys sound on. Bobby crushes the vocals, Jerry is dexterous and nimble with his leads, the band swells nicely at the peak/conclusion. Sure, it's not '72 era sound, but it's still a solid version.

Goddamn, no matter how many times I spin this one, it still SLAPS. Such a triumphant peak...

The outro jam from this gets super mellow, tingling, then boys start gearing it right back up to spin effortlessly into NFA closing. Very choice version

I'm finding this show extremely enjoyable. Doesn't get the shine it deserves due to other nights on the run. This one is chunky and brings the bluesy goods
