Dec. 4, 1979
Unlike any other. A really beautiful jam emerges out of this that at times recalls Me and My Uncle and Saint of Circumstance, before getting a little funky melt into drums. Interestingly, most pre-drums songs in fall '79 have an extra jam attached; it's not Space though. Consequently the sailor>saints of 11/2, 11/8, 12/7, 12/11 (Estimated Prophet jam), and 12/27, among others, have very interesting jams tacked on generally characterized by "flight of the bumblebee" Jerry. Also see the 12/1 CC Rider, 12/5 Other One, and of course the 12/26 Estimated, which has an extra jam at times very similar to this Franklin's. 11/29's Eyes gets an extra jam but is much similar to the classic Space, still pre-drums though. I haven't examined every show from this tour but serious historians out there should check out these pre-drum jams that clearly were a part of the evolution of D>S. But, imo, these jams are much more interesting than Space. Just listen to this Franklin's!
