"Rain" is listed on Laura Carter's setlist from the New Zealand 2001 show (it's online.. check the link in the bootography).. It's the first song listed, followed by "Nothing's Going To Happen" which is a Tall Dwarfs song (Chris Knox's band), and then Jeff's set as appears on the recording.. and I'm thinking the first two songs were actually the last songs in Chris Knox's opening set that night, and Laura must've sat in with him on them. I know Chris is a huge Beatles fan, so I'd assume "Rain" is the Beatles song. I'm not sure if Jeff played on either song. I probably shouldn't have even included them in this song index. There's a slim chance that "Rain" is actually a new/unknown Jeff song that he planned to open his set with, but either changed his mind at the last minute, or maybe whoever recorded the set just wasn't able to record those first couple songs.. but I kinda doubt it. It was more likely played by Chris Knox, with Laura and maybe Jeff sitting in.

no known recordings

New Zealand 2/4/01... maybe?
