Such an incredible album.  Ridiculous that the jerks at Rolling Stone magazine only rank it 315th.  

In the video, TP does a nice partial version of Louisiana Rain as an acoustic song.  We discussed previously which songs worked well as acoustic versions and which worked better in their original forms.  But Louisiana Rain is one that was rarely performed live, and might have sounded nice in acoustic form.  I don't think TP ever performed the full song that way, unless I'm forgetting a performance of the song at the Bridge School benefit (which is possible).
