This one takes a sharp left turn into some weird tones and aggressive soloing from Keith and Jerry.

Country rock pulsing with jazzy energy. One of the most exciting pre-hiatus versions.

Fierce yet loose. Lots of fun is being had and it's infectious.

Uniquely satisfying. Bob and Keith lock into a mind-meld that leads Jerry in some interesting directions.

Maybe my favorite Keith solo ever.

The Phil bombs are outrageous, and Bob plays a surprising little progression in the last solo break that takes the jam further than usual. Heady for sure.

Bobby is laying down some downright nasty licks and the Rhythm Devils are in rare form. Despite some meh playing from Jerry and a way messed up breakdown, this version is still worth your time.

The emotion is just dripping off of this version, with supremely well-crafted Jerry solo. Bob and Donna deliver a powerful duet driven by spirited work from the rhythm section for a version that stands out in a very genersouly jammed first set.
