TV Ceasar Dunn just gets it. Nice solo  from Josh Phillips
Pandora's Box lots of power
Robert's Box everything sounds amazing [live download here]
Wall Street Blues very nice solo from Geoff Whitehorn extended midsection
Taking the Time guitar-line for initial horn and the Speakeasy bluesy/jazz midsection and ending play between Geoff W and Josh. Rockin'!
Barnyard Story 'one of our happier tunes' solid
Sister Mary 'dedicated to the people from last night' more condensed and powerful. Nice decorations by Josh during last verse. Another one to see live
Beyond the Pale very powerful with nice crowd response - a second ending for an audience hoy!
Grand Hotel Gary's hand falls off the front of the keyboard for a good laugh la Victor Borge during the piano solo. Massive response and applause
Cerdes (Outside the Gates of) the power is astonishing! Massive ending and crowd applause
A Salty Dog 'for all of our friends who couldn't be here tonight and for those who watch us from above'. Amazing and full!

Band intros
(YouTube clip here)

Russian National Anthem lead-in to A Whiter Shade of Pale massive applause, and everyone stood up for the anthem (YouTube clip here)
