An inspired drums segment from the Devils and a serviceable space segment. Worth the spin

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.

Jerry's vocal tones and acoustic touches churn itself its so damn buttery.

SO grateful to have this top tier show on crisp soundboard now with the new release. My god this version SLAYS. And to the first comment, I thought the same exact thing in the opening beat - is this technically disco?? Jerry's tone and phrasing on the initial solo is everything... The band swells around him to a massive peak. This version is a scorcher...

The cathartic peak to cap the spiritual roller coaster of this legendary second set. The peak in this is gorgeous. The boys bring the crowd back to earth with a sugar mags to ultimately close out this top tier set.

Ethereal jam, the sound of what floating would feel like. Less aggressively "Spanish Jam" chord crunches like other versions, more hints of the song structure in deep exploration while jamming

This needs more dap. Peppy, tight, fluid jamming throughout and the highlight outro solo is like peeking into a spiritual musical conversation between Brent and Jerry. So, so good.
