Dialed in, rocking hard, a just-right vocal breakdown with a slamming tight finish!

Brent is wailing the B3 and the ending crescendo is Allmans-esque with Phil dropping massive bombs. Excellent close to set 1.

"Good evening and a very Happy New Year to you all" after a real nice Bertha>Promised opener

It took Foolish a few years to really develop. Phil is doing it up in a well developed jam crescendo with a very tasty solo from Jerry.

That "thing" is a thing of beauty called a Fender Rhodes and Keith's playing of it is half of what makes this Bird Song so great, IMO! Hard to believe someone doesn't like it but different strokes for different folks. Plenty of versions without a Fender Rhodes for them.

I totally dig the electric piano sound Keith is using on this one.

Super slow tempo, if you are into that kind of version

Too bad they get confused about how to tend the song, otherwise a near perfect version.

I agree, there really should be a limit of the number of versions of one song one person can list. No more than 5, I'd say.
