    Can't add much to what everyone's already said...unreal.

    Starting at 3:20...isn't that part of an outro to another song? I can't place it.

    EDIT...I was hearing some of "Act Like it Hurts" in that riff at 3:20. Not spot on, but reminded me of it.

    Why do old men wake so early? Is it to have one longer day?

    Great clip. It looks like he wrote the bulk of his material in the 70's and 80's and just fleshed the stuff out on later records. He mentioned in some interview that Seventh Seal was a riff he wrote in the 70's.

    Living in an anti-drug world, I've never appreciated the lyrics to Amsterdam. But the music is outstanding! I wish it had different lyrics.

    I think that was Eddie’s complaint about that song wasn’t it?

    Yeah, it's either late '86 or '87 going by his haircut, watch and obviously not '85 with the shirt.

    Balance sports some licks from the 70s and 80s: The Seventh Seal, Amsterdam, and the intro to Take Me Back.

    WOW! How freakin' cool is that!

    Just confirms what I've always thought. There's so much we haven't seen.
