    Great. Thanks for putting it on!

    (Love the bit where a shy young DC gets his hand taken away from the front of his mouth while speaking so his words can be heard…)

    This one is actually supposed to begin with a full version of Burn. There must be something missing at the beginning here.

    Have y’all noticed Ritchie slipping a bit of Hey Joe during his trademark eastern-flavoured solo in Space truckin’?

    Nice touch.
