In today’s Open Thread Neo notes – The first time I ever heard Sultans of Swing it was the studio version, but it was one of those songs that immediately made me stop what I was doing, pick up my head, and say, “What? What is that great sound?” I loved the studio version from the moment I heard it, but this live version is even better. Is that possible? Yes. As one YouTube commenter says: “The solo is the only reason aliens haven’t destroyed earth yet.”
She’s right you know. The solo…. the solo…. the guitar solo…. it will engulf you.
…We were so beautiful.
