Also Sprach Zarathustra

, comment by TweezingSpaceRanger
TweezingSpaceRanger This song was the climax of The Mothership's journey into deep space that took place during the entire second set of the show. The extra jam in this version was concise and consisted of hard funk rock with the perfect touch of spaciness to match with the setting of the Hampton. The version also contained a spacy outro with nice licks from Trey after the song and went into a surprising and perfectly placed Sand. Overall, this 2001 was highly danceable, played with purpose (no lull time), and matched the setting in which the music was taking place. A perfect combination for The Mothership and well deserving of the green label. Take me back!

n00b100 Sure, they don't stretch 2001 out like the 20 minute versions from the late-90s anymore, but that only means they've gone back to 94-95 lengths, and the 3.0 versions are often far more creative than those pre-funk versions. This version is deserving of green treatment for that reason alone, as the band (clearly chuffed after the superb Piper -> Takin' Care of Business sequence) puts some extra stank on the non-chorus segments, Page in particular B-3'ing his way into our hearts. Another essential piece to the jigsaw puzzle that is 10/20/13 II.

And, just because I like beating this drum, it's a -> out of Takin' Care of Business.
