What a lackluster rendition of "Turn On Your Lovelight" Mr. Pigpen!! Although the rest of the band is smoking, Pigpen does not sound at all inspired.
"Oh no you don't!!" he yells as Jerry breaks into the opening notes. Apparently Pigpen did not want to do it and he makes it clear. I guess he was tired. I guess the entire band was tired as they abandoned the "Unce John's Band" encore.
