If opening night was a “Derek show,” night two was a Warren show, with big, torrid, powerful Haynnsian attacks on “Rocking Horse,” "Hoochie Coochie Man,” and “Black Hearted Woman.” “Don’t Keep Me Wondering” was an early, shimmering highlight; my buddy turned to me after and asked, rhetorically, “Who brings the house down on the third song?”

Before the run, Butch promised we’d be hearing some songs they hadn’t done in a while; tonight two of them made their debuts. Gregg offered up a thick, bluesy “Get On With Your Life,” a song they hadn’t performed since 1992. It was a tent pole highlight of the first set; Gregg’s voice was solid on this one, and indeed all night his singing and playing were especially fresh and present, as Warren egged him on to take several solos.

The second set opened with the two guitarists duetting on “Little Martha,” which half way through erupted into a full band version, out of which the boys ran right into “Blue Sky,” a bright and delightful Eat a Peach one-two punch.

But, perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was the lovely “Seven Turns,” with Oteil taking lead vocals; it was the first time they’ve played that one since May of 2000. And it was as happy as you remember, with great ensemble vocals on the chorus from Warren, Oteil and Marc, with Gregg belting out the answer lines (“Somebody’s calling your name…”). Clearly a highlight of the night; it felt like 1991 all over again.

A moody “Spots of Time” featured a brief drum and bass interlude, then gave way to a romp through “Jessica," spiced in the middle when Warren offered up some “Mountain Jam” teases. All in all, a solid and nostalgic Saturday night show.
