Doc_Sportello It's weird to say it, but this show is kinda ordinary. I have to say ordinary because, back in the day, epic virtuosity plus crazy swagger was just another day at the office for these dudes.

The segue from Fee to Maze is a thing to behold, though. And Maze is pretty much psychotic. Fishman sounds like he's trying to smash his cymbals to smithereens. There's also a point in Antelope where I'm pretty sure he's trying to murder his drum kit.

Like pretty much any show from this era, worth a listen. The worst thing you'll hear is precision and exuberance that sounds slightly perfunctory. Which is amazing when you think about it.
