If solo
1. If I Lose, Let Me Lose (a chestnut to try to get some mojo going)
2. Hesitation Blues (and another one, to try again)
3. No More Cane on the Brazos (stretching a bit)
4. Old Jim Canaan's (and a bit more)
(drop sixth string to D, change the mood, and back to familiar ground)
5. Delia
6. Comin' in on a Wing and a Prayer
(back to standard)
7. Hey Hey Daddy Blues
8. Denomination Blues
(to Spanish tuning, while judging whether an encore might be right, and if so)
9. Trouble Soon Be Over (Blind Willie Johnson via Geoff Muldauer)
... but it's a slow consumption, killing me by degrees

Come Back Baby (in DADGAD tuning, my own arrangement based on a recording Eric Bibb and I did more than 20 years ago, which he said he based on a version he heard from Dave Van Ronk)
32:20 Blues Robert Johnson
Big Road Blues  Sam Chatmon's version, which I LOVE and can't get enough of!!!
