One of the more prolific songs in the live repertoire from The Siket Disc, “My Left Toe” has emanated from a number of jams. However – as with almost everything on that album – its tenuous construction makes it easy to mistake similar jams for intentionally performed versions of “My Left Toe.” Such is the case on 10/8/99, when a jam out of “Tweezer” sparked much debate as to whether it was “My Left Toe” or just a jam (the latter). More concretely identified performances of the song have taken place on 6/30/99 (awesome segue from “Bug”), 7/7/99 (“Disease” -> “My Left Toe” -> “Wading” -> “My Left Toe”), 7/21/99 (out of "Simple" and into "Caspian"), and its final performance to date on 7/25/99 (out of “My Friend My Friend”).

As the jamming charts expands, I hope the MLT from 7-21-99 gets some recognition. Starting at the 9 minute mark, a divine composed jam builds to a hypnotic peak. The crowd was quite chatty that night, but this jam brought everyone's focus back to the stage where it belonged.I was there front row...you are totally right. one of my favorite shows from 1999-2000. HUGE PEAK!
