On February 17th, 2012 (3 days after the Russian Wilds was released) we played Santa Barbara at Soho with the Allah-Las and Neal Casal solo. Neal gave a beautiful solo performance that night, I believe on solo electric, playing a lot of songs from his then most recent solo album 'Sweeten the Distance' and then sat in with Howlin Rain for this extended version of Calling Lightning pt 2.
It's a joy to hear Neal, Isaiah and Joel (on keys)  trading off burning, colorful leads. I believe the first solo section in the song is Neal, the beginning guitar solo of the extended ending jam is Isaiah and Neal takes over from the breakdown in the jam section about half way through the song on out. The recording is pretty bootleg quality but I always loved this one. 
I thought we'd have more of these Neal. I loved being on stage with you, I think everyone who shared a stage with you did. 
RIP friend.
