Tweezer

I hear this Tweezer start up on the heels of a rockin' Chalk Dust Torture, and all I can think of is the great George Takai saying, "Oh my!" I really hope everyone who was inside the XL Center that night, realized at that moment what thrills they were in for. Another clear and dynamic AUD - thanks @padelimike! Fishman lays it down for everyone who needs more cowbell, and when Page moves to the clav and changes the key, I'd swear that The Captain and Tenille themselves are strutting across the stage, singing "Love Will Keep Us Together". Another modulation at 9:15 brings us to the key of F, and IMO the best part of this Tweezer. Essentially, I agree with the other comments here - this is a fine, jam-chart-worthy piece of improv. Could it be that some jam chart admins go out of their way to move against the grain of popular opinion? Or is this song's jam chart entry a reminder to the rest of us, that we are all individuals with our own, equally valuable opinions? ;)

HollyHood This is not overrated one bit. Among my 3 favorite from the era.

reallybigfoot This Tweezer contains a phenomenal jam. As mentioned above, the band is locked in from the outset. Not overrated in my mind.

n00b100 Here's all I know - anybody that calls this puppy overrated is no friend of mine. Pure float-on-a-cloud bliss, right up there with the 8/1/98 Tweezer and the 11/30/97 Wolfman's non-death-metal part. I'd give it the yellow treatment as well, as it's easily one of the highlights of Fall 2013, a banner run in the history of this band.

itsice88 The fact that the 7/12/13 Tweezer is yellow and this one isn't makes absolutely no sense. Hartford Tweezer demolishes that Tweezer. Nothing against that Tweezer-> Cities-> Wedge sequence which was really cool, but the Tweezer by itself doesn't hold a candle to Hartford.

BetweenTheEars How does saying something is "overrated" add value to the jamming chart?

Answer: it doesn't.

Overrated, my ass. Seems like an attempt to mask a bias
This jam was so good the band locks in right off the start on the jam. This is not overrated by any means and could even deserve to be highlighted yellow.
