When Jerry was on in this era it was phenomenal the way he had feeling and dynamics in the touch of the pick

One of the best solos I've heard on this tune. If you like your solos light on notes and heavy on feeling, listen up.

The intervals and touch and chromatic phrases in the solo are fantastic

Beautiful touch on the solo, notes that you can hear disappearing

The chordal figure Jerry plays in the jam is unusual for him, in its character and for how long he repeats it. Hypnotizing

Great version. Jerry and Phil kill it in the last solo

The FOTM is devastating. Surprised this isn't higher

I love these shambolic versions where something gets fucked up and Jerry ends up soloing over the verse. In the coda he says fuck it in grand Jerry style. Also I want to say Keith's playing is baroque - and not in the musical sense. Bobby is also playing some awesome shit
