Veterans' Memorial Coliseum

Smoking hot, how is this not one here?! Some great solos from Jerry, good bit of Keith in the middle. Comes out of a fast mamu, what's not to like!

Perfect version, lots of Keith, slow but doesn't drag

New Haven Coliseum

Aside from the vocal and instrumental flubs at various points, the pace is electric. Not heard many as fast as this, builds up to a great ending

Nothing to say that hasn’t been said already, this absolutely SMOKES!

Oakland Auditorium

Just have to comment again about how this should be top 5 comfortably, even top 3 - only versions rivalling this are 4/24/78 and 2/3/78. Raw energy, keeps me coming back for more

P.N.E. Coliseum

Yes this is one of the worst vocal mishaps I've ever heard (and that's saying something with this song!) but goes places afterwards and only adds to the uniqueness for me. End jam is great

Edmundson Pavilion

This deal went down. One of the best early Deals I've heard
