Had the same question about why it has flown under my radar, @Cow. Possibly because a very casual surface listen makes it sound like some laid back southern bar band, but there’s so much more if you pay attention.
@Lycan – I didn’t mean the Crosseyed lacked precision or excellent playing, just that the songs usually tossed around as tour standouts stray very far from the root of the song, ala Camden Chalkdust, DWD>WTU, Greek Light and Greek Simple, etc. “A groove get-down” is a great description.
it def doesnt get too far out of a in-the-box jam. but that particular jam is so few and far between and one of my favorites.. that to get such a stellar version like that.. well definitely vaults it to the fall highlights catagory
Interestingly I first learned he cd remaster version of quadrophenia and later heard the original vinyl from the mfsl version… almost a different album the production is so different. I much prefer the original, the remaster really reflects 90s production style in a not good way… so if you haven’t heard the original version its worth a spin. Probably not going to overcome a general who aversion, though
Not to sort of repeat myself from a page back, but musicians in the crowd, go on and figure out the time changes (or, possibly but improbably, the “merely epic” syncopation…no, that’s some time signature changes, I’m sure of it) on Rocket in my Pocket.
Gets me every time.
