This song had some really great versions of songs that I hadn't heard before.

I agree. I especially liked the alt. versions of Alice's House and Car Trouble Part 2. Very cool.

Thanks you guys. And thanks again to you too, Doc, for inspiring the theme. I still wish I knew why that original Alice's House was left off of the Forever Now album since the album, while brilliant, is so short. Maybe they just thought it was too dark?
