Wasn't it, "We play what we want to play."

Haven't listened to WOTR in years.

After lots of Last Stop chanting, he says, "I know y'all wanna hear something. We're gonna play what we want to. Thank you very much."

For the record, that 4th Red Rocks show has got to be the weirdest show I've ever seen.
It opens with Recently (TD) / DIDO / Typical, which sets the bar so high. After an Everyday repeat, it dives into a 5-song run of SU songs (all of which are repeats), then a Jimi repeat. But then a 20-minute Exodus, which is awesome, and Bayou, both with a bunch of guests. Then, that's the end of the setlist - at only 12 songs! The encore is also two repeats, and a fairly boring way to end a 4-nighter.

What's weird is that the show isn't as bad as it looks on paper. First off, obviously that opening trio is amazing (all great performances too). Secondly, that American Baby Intro in the middle of the show is incredible - easily the best ever, with Roi working some magic. Jimi is a solid version, and Exodus is awesome. Out of 14 songs total, there's lots of jamming, and some amazing performances, despite being just 14 songs, half being throwaways like Dreamgirl, HFTGL, and ODH.

That Bayou was also the first time it was jammed out like that was a highlight of the weekend for about the next year until it seemed less special.

Not really, Randolph had guested on it a couple times that summer (as early as June 5). This one was the most energized to that point though.

Wasn't it also a free show to benefit Katrina victims?

Was it free? I know it benefited Katrina victims but donít remember if it was free.

Yeah this one became the template for the song going forward. I listened to this version a lot back then.

The MSG version with Randolph later that year was also excellent. I know Bayou gets a ton of flack but I like it a lot. That MSG '05 N2 show is still one of my best DMB memories and that Bayou is a part of it for sure.

I remember being disappointed with N1 but leaving N2 much more satisfied.
