Just been thinking about Standing in the Doorway last night and how Bob hasn't played it for so many years and then it pops up, gets played once and disappears again. Very nice to be there for those moments.

What are the 'rarest' songs you've seen Bob do?

I saw a Chimes of Freedom a few years ago which was a real treat, as well as SITD last night

I saw him performing One More Cup Of Coffee in Munich 2009. Another gem was Never Gonna Be the Same Again in Hannover 2005. There were also other rare songs I´ve heard him play.

I hope to hear Standing in the Doorway this tour. It´s one of my favourite songs.

A big thrill was the London outing for Romance in Durango in 2003 - at that point it hadn't been played live since 1976. It was a great performance too!

Also, my sister was at the New York show that saw the live debut of Yea, Heavy and a Bottle of Bread in November 2002 and I was at the London show the following year when it got its second live performance - as those are the only two times it's been done (thus far) I feel there's a sort of family connection between us and that wonderful little song.

I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine was a nice treat in 2011. I also miss Gonna Change My Way of Thinking, although it was hardly infrequent by the time it left the set.

Little hard to remember what used to be considered infrequently-played since now almost EVERYTHING would be. But I think these were relatively rare at the times I saw them:

To Be Alone With You
If You See Her Say Hello
If Dogs Run Free
I Believe in You
John Brown
Joey
New Morning
Po Boy
