Loose Lucy
Kicks off potentially the most epic set 2, with a bouncy excellent version of the song. Forget the lyrical flubs.

Beat it on Down The Line
Jerry throws in a riff from My Old Kentucky Home!

The freakin harmonies on this one I miss that trio singing Euro 72 style. Back when Phil could sing that high

El Paso
The best one you can find besides 11/11/73, which is the playin>elpaso>playin sandwhich. TRUST ME

China Doll
This whole show just has it. The best versions of this song are played with patience into the bridge and the backgrounds are key. This ones a clinic.

Top shelf version, one of the best.

Sugar Magnolia
Light first half of a titanic encore. The anniversary's coming up, might as well give the show a listen...

It Must Have Been The Roses
In addition to the great playing throughout this first set, you can grin at the several musical references to the Derby that the boys threw in.
