kipmat The other reviews have covered most of the highlights; I would only add a rave for the excellent version of Esther that manages to maintain the energy of the set. IMO, the first set is just a touch stronger than the second. While Harry Hood is usually placed at the tail end of a set to add emotional gravity, it's placement in this first set is only as a sorbet to follow the seven delicious courses that preceded it.

Another sweet Free Bird closes the show, the only non-electric tune of the night. No bluegrass or jazz standards on the setlist, either. It must've been cool to witness the boys sing and play songs unamplified back in the theater days, but I don't always find it to be comfortable listening. This show is definitely easier on my ears.
