    Sweet. First time I have ever heard an all-electric version of Spanish Fly.

    He's actually played Spanish Fly (or variations of it) in quite a few of his live solos. Definitely check out the Portland solo from the last tour. It's on youtube...

    Good find, James. One of the best I've heard.

    If Ed wants to record a song that will rival CVH quality on an upcoming album, he could just take that part at 4:00 and make a song out of it. Just sayin'.

    Very cool. A little pre Cathedral noodling going on. I dig the part at 4:00 too. Wonder if that idea ever grew into anything larger thats unreleased or if it was juts a little thing he came up with he tossed into his solo that tour. There are a few tunes that it could have evolved into but nothing obvious stands out as identical imo. All his stuff was so amazing and fresh then.

    That bit has a Pleasure Dome vibe to it. Good stuff.

    That particular shit is what makes me upset with the man.


    YES...I feel that he owes nothing when I think about the whole catalog...but hearing stuff like this proves to me that the tank is FAR from empty.
