Jerry's chromatics liquified my face. Total acid-drenched mindmeld.

Such a dank version. It's got an effortless shuffling swagger to it that, at certain fleeting moments, almost seems to exude/forecast R&B trip-hop vibes of the mid-90's. Jerry and the boys are so immersed in this jam, and the crowd is going nuts. One hell of a long applause at the end. The middle part of the jam is a perfect example of Jerry always knowing exactly what your mind needs, then promptly proceeding to dose it with megawatts of raw, surgically-precise, liquid lightning-bolt energy delivered straight to the synapses. All with an acoustic guitar.

That ominous intro jam always melts my brain so quickly. Crackling with high-voltage '81 energy.

Crazy panflute-sounding organ noises at the end! Nuts!
