Uh oh, disspelling the "myth" that Moon was going down hill by '75 thus the
band as well.

He didn't they spliced the first run (? I'd need to do a side by side check
to be sure which run it is, I've long forgotten) over the original 3rd run.
No, I don't know why.  There are numerous examples of this seemingly random
type of editing throughout.

(raises hand) Me.  My favorite member, my no. 1 influence (I try to play
bass), and my opinion he was much more of the band's overall sound than
anyone will admit.  See my comments on Boston DVD.
