 I'd agree with the banishment of "Fill My Cup", but no way is "Rosalita" that bad dude. The twin guitar interplay at the bridge is among the most transcendent moments in the record IMO, and it provides a heck of a bridge to get to "Cailfornia".

 Something about the way he tosses off "beautiful bitch" gets to me. It's, what, four minutes of taking this invisible girl down a few pegs in a slimy whisper. I figure "Rhythm & Blues Alibi" did that better, and "Tijuana Lady" from the first record did the acoustic showcase better, even if I have to sacrifice the admittedly pleasant pickings of "Rosalita". I dunno. Good to see someone else who's thought about this.
