Strap on headphones (AUD quality) and forget about the manic screaming. Listen to Keith, you won't regret it.

Blazing hot. Don't be put off by the AUD quality. Strap on the headphones and go. Brilliant.

This EP is 'just exactly perfect'. Jerry's curlicue soloing over tight ensemble playing in a dramatic rising arc.

This song was still in its infancy and to my ears this is the first one that really tuned into to the freaky frequencies that turn the best ones into the high-potency medicine that can either keep you grounded or freak you out: The off-kilter, odd meter, voices-in-the-head "na-na-na-na-nas", the protagonist's screaming madness, and the triumph of Jerry's solo on the edge of sacred illumination. Here's the video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIXnAXfjzD4.

Play this for anyone who thinks '76 is 'too slow'. They are way up on top of this on and Billy and Mickey just open it up and own it.

Thanks darkstar67! I'll check that out. I love how the Tapers Section just keeps on keeping on. I dig the Tobin Matrix for this show too :https://archive.org/details/gd1976-06-10.matrix.tobin.84985.sbeok.flac16/gd76-06-10d2t07.flac

This moves through phases along the way but gets there in style! Hits brilliant experimental patches and flirts at weirdness (never really getting there) when all at once-blam-o! It lands you in... BIG RIVER?!? What a mind-fuck that must have been for the Heads in attendance. Gotta love them for such spontaneity.
