Not I, I wish!
I think I contributed "Grindstone" to the first tribute, "Atomic Power" for the 2nd? Was going to give up a version of Silacosis Blues for the 3rd that never happened.

Vitamins... sooooo good.

Agreed. Top 5 for sure. The LIS version especially hits the gut hard. Who did it on the first tribute disk? With the horns. Was it ThatBeat? Great version as well.

Mark's fingerprint on this song, especially live versions, can't be contained.
Lyrically, one of Jay's top 5 in my option, no dispute.
This one needs to be heard.
I feel precisely the same way about 'Clear Day Thunder.' One of Jay's best lyrically and musically, methinks.

Amen to that, brother. I'll be at every show within about a 250-mile radius of Atlanta -- Asheville, Greenville, Birmingham, Athens, Chattanooga, Knoxville....

damn, this song hits me every time- no matter if its the Canyon-backed version or the solo acoustic a-la Live in Seattle... this is one bad ass song.

Crossing fingers there's a Southern leg to this upcoming tour...
