The deluxe edition is pretty great too
The extended edition of "Baby Don't You Do It" is simply phenomenal, with Pete and Mountain's Leslie West duking it out on guitar, and the alternate version of "Getting in Tune" may have a simpler piano chord pattern, but the jamming part is far more effective, and the keyboards overall in the vocal parts are far better produced (and it's Al Kooper playing them, which is always a plus). And the live disc should have been a separate release: it's a shame they couldn't squeeze in the two/three missing tracks from the show (and I know that at least one, the performance of "Bony Moronie", was available), but I'm glad to have Lifehouse-era performances.
