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

Great Scarlet solo

Sorry to get technical, but the five notes Jerry plays in the second phrase of the solo are the sort of thing that kill me
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication

Warfield Theater

LL isn't great but Supplication is burning, raging hot. Funny how they would do that. Bobby's playing is awesome. Also needs to be noted that Brent's organ playing is perfect for these tunes.

They take it way out and everyone is killing it. Specially Bobby. And Phil. And Jerry. And Keith. And Billy.

This outro jam sounds great on headphones and in your living room but it probably never sounded better than wafting over a sea of VW buses in a pre-show parking lot circa 1991.
