Have I ever mentioned how much I love Crazy Fingers? Undoubtedly I have. After my last Crazy Fingers selection I was a little rueful of my pick. What I thought was going to be solid version teetered on the brink a bit.
Fast forward a year and we’re in the vaunted Spring 1990 tour and I’m drinking the Kool-Aid. I unapologetically acknowledge that I am basically a sycophantic yes-man when it comes to endorsing the superlatives of this tour. The book that came with this set had commentary on each show from Blair Jackson and he didn’t seem to be high on some of the Crazy Fingers, or perhaps more accurately the way the band treated transitions like a game of chicken rather than gently folding the flour into the batter.
While Crazy Fingers is a structured song with a lot of changes, there are still some a few areas to stretch out, my only complaint would be that those are a bit short. However, I’m thankful for what we do get, even if it’s a few measures of brilliance at the end of the song, as is the case here somewhat.
Finally, to those that celebrate, Merry Christmas. Put those Crazy Fingers to work opening presents (and for some of you putting together your kids’ toys)!
