    yeah, you can get Anaheim on CD

    one of my favorite concert recordings ever, the Strangers really got into it, and people were dancing so much on that stadium deck the officials had to issue a warning over the intercom

    Merle's the man

    In that footage that was posted of the Anaheim, CA show, you can clearly see a warning that mentions "NO DANCING!" on the stadium deck - and, IIRC, you can hear this warning on the actual live concert CD.

    Probably Workin' Man Blues or Swinging Doors.

    Other top contenders: Mama Tried; Okie from Muskogee; Big City or Daddy Frank the Guitar Man.

    If duets count, Merle and Willy's Poncho and Lefty. They were way better at playing and singing it than Townes Van Zandt.

    I went to see Merle in 2014. Glad I did.
