    Niagara-Sangandongo---a solid, if overrated long jam, but pretty great. CAN-Halleluwah is my current favorite song to listen to in my car (all 18 minutes)

    as of late its Tabou Combo "New York City" from the 8th Sacrament LP. This song sold in the millions and its 10 minutes long, but to me it seems like 3 minutes. I cant help but get transfixed on the rhythmn guitar played by JC Jean, dude is a machine, a guitar equivilent to Can's drummer Jaki. Amazing.

    Any song at a George Clinton/P-Funk show.

    Yes - actually one of the few LP's I also bought on CD to get
    the extras. I like the instros and the one take where Arthur is
    going off on dude - "no, man! you just don't get it! YOU ARE PLAYING
    TOO FAST."
