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.

Goddamn, no matter how many times I spin this one, it still SLAPS. Such a triumphant peak...

The outro jam from this gets super mellow, tingling, then boys start gearing it right back up to spin effortlessly into NFA closing. Very choice version

I'm finding this show extremely enjoyable. Doesn't get the shine it deserves due to other nights on the run. This one is chunky and brings the bluesy goods
