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

Jerry falsetto and crunchy, bouncy bluesy jam. Heater!

Digging this bouncy version. Excellent ramp up for the close

This version is everything. Jerry's licks leading into the jam portion are indelibly etched into my brain. I have no shame in double commenting - this one is one of the absolute tops and deserves dap.

Show opening, near 12 min version. Raw, powerful and emotive. Love, love, love Jerry’s tone

For me, this one is the ONE. Such controlled manic swells, perfectly paced, everyone is nimbly riding an incredible wave of energy. Creativity paired with precision. UnREAL levels of greatness
