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

Even the Promised Land cranks in this show. Big ending peak and crowd is going bonkers

On paper, this first set gets a "meh" and a shrug, but I cannot stop listening to it on the latest Dave's. Every song is given the proper treatment and the boys are ON. This song, one I never gave any real attention to, is played with power and joy. Now I wish they played it more often - has the bounce similar to "Might as Well" - I def dig it

Epic moment, definitive version. Impossible to listen and not get tingly

This one crushes. Jerry absolutely layering the goodies on in the solos and fantastic Bobby work on rhythm during the verses to set the tone. Remember this one from tapes and always dug, but haven’t heard in ages til the release just now. Def upper echelon version!
