"originally released on the very first view from the vault, this dynamite performance of the classic weir-barlow song came out of a long, beautifully paced eyes of the world, and is the launching pad for the big second set jam at three rivers stadium in 1990, which later included a terrific terrapin station, a rare post-drums w**g dang doodle, and a poignant black peter. a wonderful show start-to-end, this estimated prophet is one of the highlights." - david lemieux
