Cortez The Killer

I’ve been into this song for the past couple days since seeing Jennifer‘s mention of the DMB/Warren Haynes cover in Central Park on that amazing comment thread at newcritics.

Here’s Dave and Warren doing their thing. I watched this on the DVD and as great as YouTube is, watch it on the DVD if you can.

And after seeing that, I had to go check out the real thing on YouTube. My favorite is this rendition from the Rust Never Sleeps tour. I saw that tour at the Boston Garden and it’s in my top ten shows ever. Neil does this little reggae thing with the "he comes dancing across the water, Cortez Cortez" line. It’s great.
