Feel Like A Stranger
June 14, 1980
Spokane Coliseum

INCREDIBLY slinky. Excellent action Brent-side on this.
Big Railroad Blues
June 14, 1980
Spokane Coliseum

Brent and Jerry trade smoking solos, then mesh at the final end jam. Choice
Throwing Stones
Sept. 17, 1982
Cumberland County Civic Center

Early, beta version of the track, the (albeit brief) jam in this is strong
Sept. 17, 1982
Cumberland County Civic Center

Excellent energy and Jerry led jamming to start a smoking show
Good Lovin'
April 30, 1977
The Palladium

I typically find the post '72 versions of this song to be a bit of filler, but this one has some nice accents from Keith and some ramp-up ending chaw


Bird Song
Oct. 15, 1984
Civic Center

I really dug this 30 days installment. Great Jerry/Bobby/Brent interplay. Boys threw down nice Bird Songs in Hartford
Dear Mr. Fantasy
July 2, 1989
Sullivan Stadium

If this doesn't have you smiling ear to ear at the Hey Jude peak, hold a mirror to your mouth to make sure you are still breathing, because you may be clinically dead.
Dec. 31, 1987
Oakland Coliseum Arena

Super energetic, crisp, and dextrous handling from Jerry. How you start a New Years show with a BANG
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
May 19, 1966
Avalon Ballroom

Super strong, early version - driving drum beat. Jerry crisp on the vocals
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
April 17, 1984
Niagara Falls Convention Center

Is there slop in here? Oh you better believe it - BUT, this Slipknot! has a flat out bonkers, high octane jam. Jerry is a freight train of frantic energy, making this one special.
