early studio glimpse of a City February 26, 2008

Cool to hear this early rehearsal: an embryonic studio snapshot of this sturdy K.C. showcase. Bozís vox and bass(!) sound quite nice & rubbery even at this early stage of development. The íspaceyí jam part (before the final verses) is also unique and interesting, with Melís usually dynamic soloing in this section sounding faint and eerily, squeakily distant. Ianís drumming & exhortations are as robust as ever.
Add a star (since it is a freebie!) if you want, plus Iíve enjoyed all the various permutations of this track, from the earlier live versions at the Fillmore West (for instance), with Mike Gilesí more jazzy approach to the structures, through the íheavierí run-throughs by this line-up at Summit Studios, etc., etc. Definitely a number that was best live, imo.

My first download from DGM Live ... And I have to say, what a great start! Excellent audio quality... Superb performances from every instrument, including the vocals, which are marvellously passionate and clear.
