Perfect full band gelling in a dramatic end jam portion, leading effortlessly into China > Rider

Why the dead chose to neuter the peak jam inherent in early incarnations of this song is one of the most perplexing mysteries ever. This is crisp tho

This hit me perfectly. Well paced, lyrically nailed the poignancy, peak was driven. Nice late-era Peter

I was surprised to look back and see how relatively short this version was, because it had wonderful pace and the punch was ferocious.

I have a huge heart for 89/90 era Knockin's, most especially for Jerry's perfect, blissful ambient tone. This one slays exactly as it should

^what the clash said. This version is made by the 2-3 min of seeming drums/space the precedes it. That little jam segment is spacey gold and transitioning into Saint is pretty shocking.

Cracking solid from everyone, with Hornsby laying some thickness

Jerry’s ethereal, tinkling tone on this solo is definitive catharsis.

First off, my god, people are still commenting daily on Veneta, Englishtown, and May ‘77 like we didn’t get a prized new professional release just days ago. This show is lauded, for innumerable reasons, not least of which is this bonkers UJB with not just a fully realized DS Jam, but not one, but two TOO tease. Leads into a mouth of hell sounding drums sequence, then a Space, which of the era, sounds like the best musicians on the planet playing fart sounds on their instruments. Otherwise (than Space), this show and version are the best of the late era, and so happy they are on polished release. The whole box is so worthwhile and glad this show got the nod for vinyl release. Spread into IT

To echo sentiments above, this is everything you want in a late-peak ear dew. The emotiveness, the cathartic swell and fury, this one is fantastic
