Ah, how the setlist has changed!
Which is, perhaps, the biggest surprise. That the setlist has actually changed.
Pretending Tell The Truth
So Tired Key To The Highway
Lost and Found Little Wing
I Shot The Sheriff Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad
Back Home Driftin'/Ramblin'
I Am Yours Outside Woman Blues
After Midnight Motherless Children
Motherless Children Anyday/Further On Up The Road
The RAH set was a bit longer, so Milkcow and Everybody Oughta Make A Change have disappeared, to not be replaced at all. But now Little
Queen of Spades is around eighteen minutes instead of twelve.
On the one hand, who can argue with all of these Derek & the Dominoes songs? On the other hand, it is now an oldies show. EC isn't pushing
any new material. Back Home has been retracted. One of the great joys of 98 and 01 was being converted to the Pilgrim material. What a
lousy record, but what great songs live! There probably wasn't much joy in trying to get an audience interested in the Back Home songs.
But I, for one, liked them live.
Still, it is hard to argue with Little Wing.
