For me it is not a song. The best moments are when structure melts away and the real playing takes over.

I really like how you put that, and I relate well to the truth in it.
But one song does keeps coming to mind – Dark Star!

Hi vapors, i heartily agree with you on both counts. pdm59 has it right, those moments were always so full of anticipation, excitement, beauty and surprise - the water in the well, the essence - and sometimes you got lucky and got an electric sunset and a quiet moonrise in the same night.

And without a doubt, for me it's Dark Star . . . always an adventure through the years.

Second that... Dark Star has it all... lyrical beauty, incredible jamming, music that opens up to heaven and hell. It demonstrates their versatility and ability, the way the band can listen to each other and play off the audience. It's limitless and timeless.
