5th angel - Working man - and by-tor

Ok, i've noticed during the solo in working man on the 5th order of angels, that its mostly improved compaired to the studio, but one like stands out, It is a riff that later appeared in by-tor , see if you cna notice it, could this be a improv jam that inspired a later theme?

Yeah I noticed that riff too. I think the time period was when they were writing Fly By Night, so when they were jamming they just started trying out new material? It is really cool to hear it like that, shows kind of how the song evolved.

If I remember right, the same thing happens in the Electric Ladyland Boot. Obviously, as they were writing FBN on tour, an number of elelments were ad-libbed into the instrumental sections of some songs and Wroking Man, having such a long instro section, was the best cindidate.
