The Drums is fine/good, but this one is great to cleary hear some spunion shout "holy fucking, SHIT!" on the SBD. Someone's mind = blown... Priceless

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

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.

Throwing HAYMAKERS. Bobby bringing chaw on vocals, Jerry is red hot on leads, Lesh and devils killing the low end, Brent with passionate fills. This one is FIRE. Bobby screaming the refrain = goosebumps

Oh man, this one is passionate. Very soulful licks from Jerry

Brent goes NUTS in this. Chunky playing, combining with Jerry's triumphant leads, and Bobby's powerful rhythmic chords
