I agree with your list. If it were six I would add Jelly, Jelly. 

IMOER on Wipe the Windows?

Add "Rain in Spain", and "Old Love".  

Edit:  Also pretty much all of "What's In That Bag?"

Yes. Wipe the Windows. I wanted to add Jelly Jelly as well as Don’t Want You No More if I went more than five.

I tried to stick with ABB solos but if we went outside that I agree with those as well as Highway Call. 
Rain in Spain is total badass. Always thought that would be a great ABB song.

mine aren’t ABB. They’re from Clapton Unplugged. 

Old Love, as mentioned. 

and Alberta.

All those years w/the Stones & can’t think of a standout solo - mayb from Flashpoint, or Shine A Light, or one of their studio ones? - only really know Steel Wheels & Bridges to Babylon w/Chuck

Anyone familiar w/Southscape? 
Chuck’s playing on Tomato Jam, from Chuck Gets Big, is great playing/‘soloing’

...but yes, all the ones mentioned, esp from B&S - Hand Picked & DMUAGThing also come-quick to mind - & I’m sure there are many more

Chuck has a long solo here on electric piano.  Lamar Williams and Jaimoe are tuned into what Chuck is doing which is not surprising as those three developed a kinship.

 Chuck and Dickey playing In Memory Of Prince Philip for Great Britain. 

Warning it's just an okay audience tape.

Chuck’s playing reminds me of Dickey’s playing in that it is so melodic and memorable.  I find myself listening to this version of the band almost as much as the original.

@masbama Well the Chuck/Lamar lineup is very different from the original band. Chuck plays many of Duane's solos and Lamar is an excellent bass player but of course very different from Berry Oakley's style.

They are not as intense as the original but have a mature, jazzy and slick sound. 

All said I rate them my second favorite lineup. 

Jaimoe was very pleased with this lineup with his old friend Lamar Williams in the band and Chuck's play gave Jaimoe a little more of that jazz style he loves. Jaimoe recently talked about how he likes Wipe The Windows and lamented it's too bad that lineup couldn't keep it between the lines as they really sounded good when they toured in 1973.
