I am really into the use of guitar in this live version of "Southern Belle". I don't know enough about guitar playing to know if it's how the guitar is miked or what but the plucking is so aggressive at times that it sounds more like bass.

"I don't want to walk around, breathe the air you breathe. Stuck in a southern town. Where all you can do is grit your teeth. I wouldn't have you how you want.

How come you're not ashamed of what you are?"

and then later....

"There ain't nobody looking now. Nobody nothing said. Nobody's about to shout. Nobody's seeing red. But I wouldn't have you how you want."

The venom in those lines is delightful.
