Off the top of my head two come to mind. If I thought longer, I'm sure I'd come up with better answers.

Hoochie Coochie Man-ABB version never really did it for me.

One Way Out- I've just heard it too many times. There are versions that I still love dearly, but for the most part I'll skip to the next song.

Maydell. The song just doesn't do it for me.

Okay, a lot of people are going to jump on me for this but...
"Seven Turns"

Also, there are quite a few songs from REACH FOR THE SKY and BROTHERS OF THE ROAD that I could easily live wtihout, plus
"Good Times (Don't Fade Away)" (and pretty much all other incarnations of that song)
"You Can't Get to Heaven on a Ten Dollar Bill"
"Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John"

Given the existence of the Arista albums, I would have to say anything off of them is worse than anything on any of the others.

OMG!! My least favorite? Hmmmmm...that's a hard one to answer. Two come to my mind. Though, I like both of them, I've heard them way too many times. "Wasted Words" and "Soulshine".

I agree 100%. Fortunately the band seems to have come to the same conclusion.

Hmm, lets see...
Desdemona
Maydell
High Cost of Low Living
Soulshine
Rocking Horse kinda gets on my nerves sometimes because Matt's not playing drums on it
Elizabeth Reed is starting to bother me lately. The last 2 shows I've seen it's ended the 2nd set seemingly to early.

my favorite is also one i hate at times "DREAMS" with a sax solo in it just makes me upset it ruins (for me) the slow melodic vibe of the tune...without the sax solo it is my favorite ABB song ok kick me punch me ..hit me while i am down...

most of the songs from their last studio album. Whipping Post... never ever ever liked that song... Greg's version from his cd a few years ago was awesome.

To me, Sweet Mama had "filler" written all over it -- ain't no way I let that one compromise High Falls.

True Gravity - when they start playing that I know it's time to get in the beer line

Rambling Man - loved it when it first came out, but lately when I hear it, it's like nails on a chalkboard for some reason. (Maybe 'cause it's got such a country flavor.)

Might you be referring to the Liz Reed at Jones Beach last month in particular?? That thing was downright painful.
