I often think of this one as a throwaway, but this version flat out kicks ass. Great solo from Jerry. These shows at MSG smoked.
15C. C. Rider
Surprised to not see this killer version on here. Bobbys totally into it while Jerry shreds. Check it out
There are parts that aren't so sharp, however there is a nice full band contribution that lasts until Bobby comes back in. Box set sounds nice!
