Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Dec. 3, 1979
I have a bit of a different take on this. I was super excited for the new DP release, as I personally love '79, especially Nov-Dec. I found this version really sluggish and lacking spark. The Scarlett was approached with near reluctance and Bobby's slide offers little to the supportive structure. The Fire picks up, but has devastating audio cuts that take you out of the momentum the band was gaining. I'll obviously spin again, many times, but was relatively underwhelmed following Lemieux talking this up so hard in the seaside chat.
