Ramble On Rose
Had to add this version just for the “The Grass Ain’t Greener, the Wine Ain’t Sweeter…” line. Probably the best version I saw live. Give it a listen.

Surprised this isn't here. Slow, and so soulful from Jerry. Brent is otherwordly an creates what I can best describe as a cocoon of sound on the keys

Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Some of the smoothest rhythm Bobby ever laid down on this tune. Brent provides great harmony. Super sweetness here!
