Me neither.
I think WGFA, BOR, WAY etc are not only too long for this, these songs have 
 already been used for their proper purpose in that cathartic healing at 
the  CFNY. It's been captured.  I know these are the corporate shoe ins from  
But...What I think should happen is opening with My Generation hitting it  
hard and doing a Live at Leeds version with all the Tommy.
It starts strong, makes that MG statement to the kids and finishes with a  
sing-along prayer.
