1st Impression Part 2. It combines the fun carnival section from part 2, and the intro is super captivating, and Carl's drums are really groovy around 4:40 in. The bit inbetween the intro and the carnival is wonderful and I just love it. Greg's singing and alternate guitar solo towards the end of it is so unique and cannot be missed. I love it so much and it's got some of the best variety of the song. 

However, I like to consider it as a whole song that should be listened to sequentially. There's a video on youtube that combines it all together. All 30 glorious minutes!

1st Impression - Part 1 has always been my favourite - but it always seems to lose out to Part 2 because of the 'Welcome Back..." vocal introduction on rock radio. Before CDs, I did my best on a cassette to join the two parts so they flowed seamlessly together - getting the volume between the two parts the same was tricky as I recall. Part 1 is instrumentally stronger with some great variation and depth within it - but the whole thing requires a continuous play, despite the Impressions having their own identity.

1st Impression, Part 1. It's got everything from Part 2 plus more. And more is better.

Well, yes the first part of the 1st impression is great, but the 2nd impression is the best music (and the best playing)!
