So spot-on! I digress here, but I've tested this on quite a few guys in the music biz who are not CH fans: I played them one early live version of the track (2008) (the one when Neil asks the audience to sing a "C" note to let the band take off from there) and asked them whether this one could have become a radio staple or a hit song. Consistently the answer is "are you kidding, this is a classic!" -- and then I play them the studio version and they go "meh".

Never understood that. The original version had a fab wash of electric guitar chords under the chorus that had created an energy and yearning simply missing from the later versions.

Thank you for the digress as I have been looking for that particular version, it seems to have dropped off Youtube. Was that the one performed at the 9:30 club in DC?
