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

Outro jam on this is everything. Broody, melodic psychedelic soup

Love Esau and this is a solid, tight, moseying version

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.
