Default Early high speed version of "Coming Your Way"

This amazingly speedy recording of "Coming Your Way" has just been pointed out on the Danny Kirwan FB group. It's supposed to be from the 1969 Amsterdam show and would be one of the (if not THE) earliest live examples of the track.
Sheer breathtaking:

Thanks for posting this excellent performance. In addition to the breakneck tempo, two other features stand out:

—Mick was one hell of a drummer. We think of him as the self-taught, rock-steady heartbeat of the band, but those early shows and albums reveal that he was a sophisticated player whose widely acknowledged feel for the backbeat was augmented by more complex Latin rhythms.

—Danny may have been Green’s protégée, but his attack was his own. Those precise, searing string bends, that frenetic energy...Green had gravity, a somber, soulful mysticism no other white player of blues possessed, but Danny’s taut, angular sound was unbelievably visceral. His playing is crazy good—a kind of manic force that is always threatening abandon but is kept in check by discipline and form.
