I don't have a vast collection of shows, and admittedly I haven't even had a chance to hear all the shows that I've downloaded.<br>But two that come to my mind right now are:<br><br>11-17-81 (Ritz) -  Frank's solo on "What's New In Baltimore" is perhaps my all-time-favorite of his.<br><br>2-16-74 - This is an incredible show, highly recommended!
