efghij, yes, "Words Of Love" I forgot to mention is excellent!

Love "Talking About You," as well, but wish the quality were better.

Another gem that I forgot to comment on (there is a LOT of material here! apologies!) is "Roll Over Beethoven." Now, I know we've heard countless versions of this (the officially released studio recording, the Hollywood Bowl release-- with the priceless George line "get your mother and reel and rock it..."-- the live in Sweden Anthology version-- which is absolute KILLER-- and the first BBC version), but this one is a worthy addition, and in my mind is second ONLY to the live in Sweden version. George approaches the vocal slightly differently here...instead of just plowing thru it, he's re-interpreting it, and emphasizing certain phrases and words differently. There is almost a sneer to his vocals here, and the band plays the song a bit more loosely than normal. Again, the differences are subtle, but I think fanatics familiar with all the versions will hear what I'm talking about.
in years to come/they may discover/what the air we breathe and the life we lead are all about/but it won't be soon enough for me
