Something is bizarre about the whole Nassau official releases. The Live 75-85 versions are spectacular. Then we get Held Up Without A Gun on Essential, which, I'm certain, was lifted right from the Nassau Night bootleg. I'm certain that they released a bootleg. Why didn't Clearmountain handle that song? I guess it was cheaper to download Nassau from Jungleland and release Held Up for the 7 of us who don't know what Jungleland is. Then we get the nugs show, which we all assumed would be something akin to 75-85...hopefully...and it's not even close. They should admit their error - and just let J.A. fix it and re-release it - let us all download it again. It's just a travesty that such a classic show remains less than stellar. Much less. Especially after listening to Rendezvous, Sandy etc...from 75-85.
I, for one, love the piano at Nassau. It gives the show a flavor.
