I have never heard this song done with this extended arrangement on any other bootlegs? Did they do this version often?
(I am not talking about the broken string silence. They extend most of the instrumental breaks.)

I think they did a version similar to this at Milwaukee in 1975 (yes veeeeeery specific).

Basically, the song grew throughout the years, and Houston 77 is one of the last times they played it, until they briefly brought it back in 79, then again in 82.

I thought it was a sensational version.
It's a shame they only played a snippet during the magic tour.

During the Magic Tour they played very short snippet as an intro to Tear It Up, but during The Works Tour they played about 1/2 or 1/3 of the song.
