Very inspired playing. Jazzy swing from the rhythm devils, Lesh is barreling down the low end, and Jerry dancing the leads to a powerful conclusion

This one takes a bit before the boys get their footing, but once they do, LOOK OUT. Choice peak in this throbber

SCREAMING start to the show. Boys attack like rabid dogs. Great Brent solo in here. Welcome to Red Rocks!

This one opens up nicely, and continually unfolds, into a seamless segue into PITB reprise

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable

This is a RIPPING good. Full shred, with thumping percussion. Wow.

The stank on this solo requires open windows when listening, for proper ventilation.

This is all about the seamless segues in and out of PITB. Jerry's vocals are rough this show, but the creativity and placement in the 2nd set make this a goodie

I'll double comment till the lights go out... Regardless of era or any other markers or metrics, this one thrills like few, if any, others. The peaks are glorious glimpses of the beyond, the valleys are soulful renderings of agony - this version is the absolute purpose of this song.
