Users have designated the following versions as heady!
Dear Mr. Fantasy
Definitive version for me and with mind melting midi.
Victim Or The Crime
damn good version, end jam featuring the beam and Jer midi and heads into Dark Star
St. Stephen
Nice jam at the 5 minute mark. One of my favorite late versions
Drums -> Space
Very Spooky version with Airto adding additional percussion.
Big Boss Man
With Bonnie Raitt surprised this is not here, remebering hearing tons about this when it happened.
Dark Star
Kind of spooky at times as it emerges from an intense Victim, Guest Airto Moreira gives some nice added textures, Real spacey at times
Hey Jude Finale
Fantastic out of the BEST Dear Mr Fantasy
Shakedown Street
New Year's '89>'90?! Yes, pretty please! The crowd is totally into it. Check out the build up before the song starts (matrix recording recommended)
Man Smart, Woman Smarter
I think the band was a little cooked from the night before but it seems like they're still having some fun.
