After John starts things off with a few licks, the rest of the band joins in, playing the funk groove of the song's A-section. They slip into the B-section, the infectious beat making way for a slower, almost ominous blues. This serves as a launching pad for McLaughlin's dazzling 12-string solo. After John's turn, the A-section is revisited, providing the groove for Jerry. The buoyant beat gives the gritty rock 'n' roll side of Jerry's playing a place to hang out. He lays into the piece. The Cobham and Laird rhythm section play around with the elastic groove. The band returns to the B-section, this time featuring Jan. His echo-drenched lines screech and scream over John and Rick's riffing. At tune's end, the volume is so loud it challenges our capacity to absorb it.
