Best Corduroy Live Performance

Corduroy is obviously one of the biggest fan favorites when played in concert. Everything about the song is great live, especially when it's played 3 or 4 songs into the show. I've heard so many live versions of it. What do you guys think is the best one?

    5/21/10 - MSG opener. What made it great was the opening energy, but more importantly the soundboard mix was awesome. You could hear the crowd screaming it from the opening lyric, but they didn't overpower Ed. It was a great mix on that show.
  • 06/16/2014 - Amsterdam. Matt Cameron's drum rolls during the outro jam are just phenomonal and add another level of "aggresive energy". Same kind of energy as you get from the 5/21/10 MSG opener ("I can feel it") as mentioned before. Close call.

    "And away... we go"... You knew that was going to be an intense show when he started that way.

    Definitely Bridge School 1996. Those shows sound so different than any other times they've played there (I don't mean arrangements I mean overall sound quality). I like!

    The live on 2 legs version has great drum rolls throughout the song. I think I prefer that version over any other.

    Was the extended jam at Wrigley referenced above, similar to what they played a few nights earlier in London, Ontario?

    Wrigley performance was insane! Milwaukee 2013 was a great one that had the crowd going nuts singing along.

    I'm assuming you mean the 10/20/2014 show in MKE. Agree, this was an all-timer! The whole place was abuzz that night... band and crowd!! Really jumps off at 3:25 or so with Ed howling and a nasty Cready solo!



    MAGIC!

    London & Chicago 2013 were both great with the way they reworked it.

    State College 2003 was pretty good as well. I love Mike's solo in that version.
