original post
It's almost that time again, broke out a couple shows today for the first time since the Fall tour ended.

Let's keep this fairly consistent.

5 star system in increments of 1/4. I always have a hard time at the beginning of getting back into the habit picking good shows to check out.

So today was 2002 day:

April 7, 2002 - *** 1/4. some good stuff, I like the early YNKs, the BS stuff that's now rare like Busted and Raven; some solid old filler. Obviously great Bartender, very good Heartbeat intro.

July 25, 2002 - **. This show was the bottom side of average for me tonight. Dave butchered Pig and So Right, Cry Freedom I'm sure was a tremendous surprise 4 years ago at the show, but it's neither 4 years ago, nor am I at the show, and I docked a 1/4 * due the WWYS encore closer. Loving Wings was still boring. The 1 - 2 Captain and Kit Kat Jam punch earn a good * 1/2 by themselves.

I think tomorrow is a 1999 sort of day.

**** is bordering on special

I popped 11/20/98 in last night: *** Really solid show. Tim guesting on the entire show. Sweet Last Stop to open. Bela guesting on a number of tunes, including one hell of a solo on LIOG (sorry Rob ;) ) and an insane duel with Tim during Two Step. Proudest Monkey out of left field. Strangest "hits" encore I've ever gotten (Satellite, Billies)

Solid show. Not a classic in comparison to many out there, but highly enjoyable.

I like that show. My first. It's the only LIOG out of my 27 that I wouldn't trade. Monkey is top (TOP) notch. 3/4 * docked for the encore.

4.21.98 Tabernacle *** 1/2

Some real inspired, early versions of the BTCS material (Hallloween and Rapunzel)- not to mention some awesome versions of Two Step, Recently, Crash with the improv "Humpty Dumpty" outro, even Too Much with a different guitar part.

First time I listened to a full show in a long time the other day:

10.5.04 -- ****

Outstanding show, probably the best of '04. Set flows absolutely wonderfully. Typical in particular is absolutely nailed. Great end of the set with Hello Again/Watchtower featuring Leon Mobley and Ben Harper. Just an evil sounding intro to DDTW to kick off the encore. Great listen all around.

yeah, but I like Billies. The intro to Satellite was a bit different too. I give points for that. I agree on monkey. I've heard two since then...NONE have topped it.

Every now and again I'll go back to this show because I forget just how good it was.

9/28/94 - ***** (Easily)

'94 was a fairly standard year with just about every show having the same vibe, same energy, similar sets(obviously), but there are a few gems tucked away in 1994 that speak volumes of how far the band progressed. 3/26, 7/28, 8/13, 8/20, and 9/28 are all perfect examples.

Of course as everyone knows 9/28/94 is the UTTAD release party show and it was also the last time DMB would play one of thier landmark venues, The Floodzone. A fantastic Jimi Thing, a smokin' WWYS("this song's about a fat goose!"), a really smooth PFWYG and one of the finest/best performances of Minarets and Recently to date. The encore is one that we all look to when pointing out the possibilities that could arise from just mixing it up a bit

-------
One Sweet World
Halloween --->
Ants Marching tease --->
Halloween (reprise) --->
Ants Marching

9/28/94 is one of those perfect shows that even when comparing it to a louder more musicaly matured and tighter band of the latter years, this show still stacks up and holds it's own against solid performances from recent years.

07/02/04 ****

Opening with Pig (debut of the tour) and seguing into the Stone was the best 1 2 punch to start a show. This is followed by a Don't Drink the Water with, what I believe, is the most solid outro Dave has performed. Then into Sugar Will....

Throw in a Recently, Good Good Time, and Hello Again with the first drum solo, Ants closer, and BOWA --> Billies Encore and you got yourself a dandy show. Only weak point in the set was WTWE, else this would be a 5 star IMO

Millette Hall
Oxford, OH
Dave & Tim

*** 3/4 (would be higher if it weren't for the crowd)

Amazing D+T show. Some stellar performances and, in one instance, one hell of a recovery from a trainwreck of a song.

Bartender opening D+T style is perfect. It sets a great mood that hangs over the set (too bad the douchebags of Miami U don't understand "mellow."). Nice surprise appearance of BOWA and I'm a big fan of BEF D+T style. Strong showings from the staples (Stone, LIOG, Two Step, DDTW, Jimi, Ants, etc.). You can't go wrong with a D+T Stay or Leave either.

The show marked a few highlight moments of mention:
First show to ever feature two covers of the same artist (Maker & Wynonna)
It was the first show to get a FULL Blue Water since Feb. '97
The crash and recovery of Christmas Song actually made the song
The jam for Crush was outstanding
Solid Nancies with the drunk man intro to wrap it all up

WORST crowd I've ever been a part of. This was truly an outstanding show, but the crowd knocks it down a few notches b/c, no matter whose tape you have, the crowd's very prevelant and asshole-ish. But the quality of the show itself makes the tape a great listen. I pray that, should we ever get a series of D+T shows released on SBD, this show makes the cut. Phenomenal.

Good review - I was there too - that crowd sucked so hard, this bitch in front of me would consistently let loose a blood curdling scream for no reason at all. Asked her to stop - and she told me she paid just as much as me to get in and she can do what she wants. Ugh.

9.7.2002 - *** 3/4 the meat of the show is actually a bit better than 9.8, IMO. Stupid WYA encore... I really liked this show. I did listen to the official release, that helped for sure. The mix is a lot better on the boxset than the highlights it seems.

Exactly what the douchebag behind me said when I asked him to stop singing loudly. He pulled the "I paid as much as you." I replied "well...I don't know about you, but myself and everybody around you paid that money to hear DAVE sing the songs, not you." But he was Dave's biggest fan!11!

The beauty was when he'd fuck up lyrics blatantly. He eventually shut up b/c his friends got annoyed about 1/4 of the way through the show.

That said, even with the horrendous crowd, the music made it one hell of a show.

June 5, 1999 - *** - solid show, one of the best representatives of 1999, as in nothing spectacular but a good example. It starts off with the standard solid 1999s, especially good versions of Lover & Crash, Last Stop is very good, Boyd is Boyd on it, unfortunately. Funny moment during #40, and the first time he really gave it a good go during the tour.

i just checked out the alpine weekend from 02. i'd rate it about a 3.25 out of 4.
both shows so great yet so different.
night one was aggressive right off the bat. tripping billies, ddtw, grey street and wwys is such an energetic start. after slowing down a little it builds some more steam with songs like bartender, the stone, stjl and drive in drive out. finally the bass kicks in and everyone assumes watchtower, but stefan apparantly had other plans as the band breaks into stir it up, which of course goes into watchtower. great moment though, hearing everyone at alpine singing stir it up. keeping with the aggresive theme, WYA closes, thus completely my least favorite encore combo ever (digging a ditch-what you are).

the second night got everyone in a happy mood right from the start. the opening of pig followed by granny might be my favorite one-two punch to open a show, it just sets a great vibe. after if i had it all Dave goes on a rant about world peace which leads into the nancies intro. very chilling momentum when his rant ends by saying "it's possible, it could have been" then the little guitar riff comes in and people go crazy. nancies is solid as is warehouse which follows. after rhyme and reason the mood turns happy again with one sweet world and 41. SMTS>ASTB>Too Much was standard but dave went crazy during ASTB. you can't see it on the recording obviously, but trust me, you can hear it. A very solid and underrated two step closes the show and the encore of gravedigger and ants was a nice suprise since it was one of the rare shows grey street was not played.

the tape quality of both shows is pretty solid as well adding to listening experience

I respect everything about the review except the poor rating consistancy. We're going out of 5, using actual stars and fractions instead of decimals, and the shows need to be rated separately. (this is constructive criticism, not ufck criticism)

billies is a great way to start off a show. #41-->say bye is always nice. love the old recently and DIDO-->ants segue. i really like this show because they are fooling around with a few different and spontaneous improvs: watermelon song, is chicago and the first toy soldiers. overall a really great flow to the show. downside is the overabundance of crash songs (obviously, considering it was released about a month before the show) and the not so great sounding tape. this would be a great live trax release.

solid show with lots of energy. Boyd was dreadful at the end of Pig of course, DDTW was started to shed it's BTCS bouncyness. Last Stop was solid, Dreaming Tree was a surprise, I wasn't expecting it, outside of a minor lyric flub, it was great. Poi Dog's singers make you beg for the Ladies. Ants was probably the highlight of the set; it's a song that has "show" versions and regular versions, this one after taking a break from it to start the tour was a definitely a "show" version.

Night 1 of the forgotten Tim run. Great setlist, Tim adds a lot considering it's his first random sit in with the full band since Red Rocks 1995. wocka wockas during DDTW, snake charmer fills in the Last Stop jam, pick work on the neck in Lie In Our Graves, smooth solo in Crush, good stuff. Dave does his standard wrong chorus in Rapunzel, a minor flub in anotherwise top 10 Last Stop. Long Carter Say Goodbye solo and a solid recording. Setlist cops out a little at the end dropping this just below the **** special show divider.

6.4.1999 - * 3/4

Below average show. The set speaks nothing about the show. There's no energy, not one song is an above average version, Last Stop is butchered. 4 out of 6 straight repeats from night 1. I like the Carter into Rhyme, but that's about it. Some good speak when some idiot throws peanuts on the stage. Recently is garbage. He gives #40 about a 30% go. fair recording, though I think Heartbeat is missing from the recording. Maybe it's just the memory of spilling about 4 ozs of ketchup on my white shirt from my preshow hot dog and the Here We Go Steelers chant in the bathroom. Either way, not good.

Just what I needed after that piece of shit earlier today. The Stone was awesome, the set lacked any sort of predictability, Too Much fake into Ants caught me off guard. Jimi is perhaps top 5 all time, Bela makes even me enjoy Lie In Our Graves. The band is pretty tight, the encore is very unpredictable, yet effective. Definitely a special show and one of the best of the tour. Drive faded in on my source, I also needed to seriously boost the bass in WMP, but after that the sound was better than average.

8.2.1995 - *** 1/2 - solid show. I think I've spent too much time with the new Live Trax to be completely impartial to this, I should've waited a bit. I went into it blind, though. I would've liked to have picked a slightly different set, but I was hyped about Summer 95. But the similar songs sound different, DRH's Jimi and Exodus solos are very different. Once I got past Exodus I figured the rest would be cookie cutter 95, but it was a little bit changed up. Great encore. ok sound, made better with EQ in WMP, worth checking out, like every Summer 95. Interesting note, Dave mentions they played DIDO last time they were at this venue, so I guess they were checking things way back when. Also the previous time they played here, was when they brought it back from the dead during it's year and a half hiatus.

11.28.1998 - Some definite highlights bracket the show, but the majority of the middle left me sort of bored. I've heard that if you're a Lie in Our Graves fan, it's one of the great versions. Not being a LIOG fan, it was a little much for me. Show picks up for me with a great #41 and Pig, then Lover followed by Warehouse was kind of hurky jerky. After Seek Up, then nearly an hour of boredom, the energy that built back up was shot dead by Lover before a strong close. Encore was a mix of good and bad. (** 3/4)

Awhile ago on the other board, I got pissy one night when everyone kept saying "flow" this and "song placement" that. I think I referred to at least one of them as "Professor" and asked for one lesson on flow. I think I figured it out with this show. A show has good flow when the songs you don't love (or even dislike) don't diminish your enjoyment of a show at all (Jimi, WAYG, Crash all work well here). We got off to a bit of a rough start with the Everyday opener (aka Soundcheck) and early tour (aka pre-gangster) Too Much. After that, it was balls out. Crazy Easy and Granny were both awesome, great lyrical performance of Sugar Will (I've yet to give my blessing to the lyrics on our site, so don't check em out yet), the perfect length Bartender, a great "5 men living in my head" scat by Dave on Jimi Thing. Dave was all ovr the place on an extended Crash intro. Rapunzel and Crush were great, but Stay just didn't close it right. Anyway, a fantastic show overall, highly recommended. (****)

well, look at how few posts there are in this thread. I asked Brandon to dig this thread up from the old archives, and since May there have been like 12 shows, I think I've done 8 of them. Maybe when the tour gets going a new thread will be awesome for the 06 stuff because everyone will listening to them, that way we can compare thoughts on a show. Because everyone's going to want to listen to the rockin' new tunes and 3 Crazy Easies per night.

8.27.00 will always be the poster child example of "flow" for a show, but most people think that since there really isn't one bad song in the set. 6.2.06 is a recent show that I think has perfect flow, as well as 6.9.06 and 6.10.06

The only thing the Star Lake shows are missing is Raven and then you would have probably the best two overall shows of the tour.

Obviously Last Stop, PFWG, STJL, etc. weren't played, but I'm taking into consideration the stage of the tour, songs that were/n't in rotation, etc.

No, not exactly a lost show by any means, but I hadn't listened to it in full in a couple of years. What Would You Say is always a nice, funky way to kick a show off, and the Grey Street that follows is just excellent. Nice inclusion of the little vocal thing Dave does on the album at the beginning of the jam. I Did It, well, I hadn't listened to this in years, and it's just as dreadful as I had remembered. The You Never Know through Pig run is just outstanding, with Pig being played far, FAR faster than I ever remember them playing and Boyd not missing a note. STDH --> Grace is a nice little breather after that run, followed by a Too Much that has nothing of note. Great jam at the end of Busted Stuff; it's just too bad this tune never caught on with the full band. This Bartender probably doesn't need much comment at this point , beyond the fact that it sounds like they were thinking of just going right into the Heartbeat at the end of it (apparently they picked up on it too). Unfortunately, they decided to keep the dreadful Space Between in there instead before picking up where they left off and kicking into an absolutely ridiculous Heartbeat --> Rapunzel. WAYG blows, but a nice, spooky little intro kicks off a different choice of DDTW to end the show.

All in all, couple of poor tunes that break up the "flow" (namely Space Between in particular) and the way WAYG has aged (i.e. hideously) take a little luster off of what is otherwise a phenominal show. In either event, it's certainly an enjoyable listen. *** 3/4

****1/2

Sugar Will, Crazy-Easy, Joy Ride, Hello Again, Good Good Time, and Captain helped me give this show a great rating. Add that to a very energetic Two Step, a (like always) very tight Warehouse, and a great encore that includes the extremely surprising Don't Drink the Water and even more unexpectedly the Too Much reprise and you have yourself one hell of a show.

I particularly like the one time only appearance of Captain more than anything else in this show, but it was very worthwhile to listen to the rest of the set. The only thing keeping this from a full 5 stars is the ugly appearance of I Did It, but even this stinker early on can't break this spectacular show.

Great show, so glad I picked it because it made today a good good day!

*** 3/4 (would be higher if it weren't for the crowd)

Amazing D+T show. Some stellar performances and, in one instance, one hell of a recovery from a trainwreck of a song.

Bartender opening D+T style is perfect. It sets a great mood that hangs over the set (too bad the douchebags of Miami U don't understand "mellow."). Nice surprise appearance of BOWA and I'm a big fan of BEF D+T style. Strong showings from the staples (Stone, LIOG, Two Step, DDTW, Jimi, Ants, etc.). You can't go wrong with a D+T Stay or Leave either.

The show marked a few highlight moments of mention:
First show to ever feature two covers of the same artist (Maker & Wynonna)
It was the first show to get a FULL Blue Water since Feb. '97
The crash and recovery of Christmas Song actually made the song
The jam for Crush was outstanding
Solid Nancies with the drunk man intro to wrap it all up

WORST crowd I've ever been a part of. This was truly an outstanding show, but the crowd knocks it down a few notches b/c, no matter whose tape you have, the crowd's very prevelant and asshole-ish. But the quality of the show itself makes the tape a great listen. I pray that, should we ever get a series of D+T shows released on SBD, this show makes the cut. Phenomenal.

I'll admit to letting out one loud woo when I heard those first two chords of blue water. I freaked momentarily, then melted into the song. Such a good version.

"With cocaine footprints on the table
My head hurts me bad
Oh and with lipsticks on the cigarette butts
But who will know who this may be
But I can't remember any of the faces
That kept me up kept me up disgracing you"




Also, that crush jam was outstanding.

Broke this one out for the ten year. Show has a warm feel to it throughout. #41 is one of my favorites acoustically behind Luther and 12.20.03. LOVE the Sweet Leaf intro to Jimi, always thought that was really cool, Tim really goes off on his solo. Dave plays Crazy when someone asks to play something new, finishing up Dave claims he never had played the song before and that it was the first time Tim had ever heard it. Always find these kind of performances very cool - kind of like Raven's return in '00. My favorite line:
"So here you and me play
Oh, hiding from discerning eyes, we stay
Oh, and tastelessly we stray
from the conventions that keep us blind
But if I choose to get higher
then why not let me fly?
I mean, if I choose to go at might
then why not let me fly?"
Between '97 and '00 Crazy was definately one of the more haunting songs Dave had ever written. Love it. Two Step, became a monster that tour, and it definately shows at this show. Say Goodbye is fantastic, Dave really hitting the strong note at the end. Another great line:
See me call
Ah, carpet soft as a bed of roses
and now I'm dreaming with you
Ah, to spill the wine and leave it we'll do
won't you wonder with me?
The show goes on with a cool, very dark, improv Jam, fitting for a tour that featured the Passion intro, Deed Is Done, Crazy, Blue Water, and Dreamed I Killed God. "My dance for all the evil...softer than the warm lips, in the Devil's tounge." The rest of the show is pretty standard for a '97. A very good Recently and Monkey. You can tell the Passion intro isnt near what it would be by the end of the month, but still a great Warehouse.

Overall i'd give this one a ****. Standard for that tour, but it has its moments of brilliance.

Gave this a go after the conversation yesterday about it, it had been awhile. Lots of 2000s sound like a 45 set to 33 1/3 (you younger folk ask your parents what that means). None of it here. They're on fire from beginning to end. Probably because they had to be on their toes dodging crickets. #41 is great with a drum duet in the middle. My only complaint is that it finishes a little weak with Busted and True without building into the Rapunzel closer, with a 1 song Billies. Anyway, **** 1/2, and I don't just give those out willy-nilly.

Very solid show, a rare appearence of Watermellon song, the first Toy Soldiers, Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago and Dave's talk about his best friend Jack Daniels right before Cry Freedom. The nice long Recently hits the spot, love the outro they do after the main part of the song. This is one of those first few shows I got when I traded and I seem to go back to it every once in a while. Granted its a standard for the year, just looks great to me, I'd walk out of that show and be happy.

A trainwreck lyrically for Dave, he messes up Rapunzel, little of Crush, and a few others. A nice rare Bridge->Too Much where Dave jumps the gun way early for Too Much, you can hear the rest of the band playing the Bridge and he plays the intro to Too Much. Also like Song that Jane Likes in the encore. Crush has Leroi playing the flute for his solo (alternating with Boyd sorta like what Leroi and Rashawn have done) and the outro which sounds great. You can sorta hear the hesitation in the Crush outro (just sounds like its going to end many times before Carter rips it up) and the glimpse of the great ending that will develop. Crash has some random noodling by Stefan throughout the intro and the first verse, while different, adds a little to the song IMO. I still don't know if I really like Boyd plucking the Watchtower solo, I liked it in LIC but it's just nice to have something different. Greg is a great guest, I can really hear him in DDTW sorta sound like Bela when he's on the song. I really enjoy hearing Dave at the end of the song repeat the outro "And I live with my justice..."

One of the songs that changes more than we thing at least during the solos, is Jimi Thing. The groove has changed a few times, Dave took a solo then stopped, turned to scatting, letting Butch scat, there's so much to this song but the song needs a little change again to freshen it up. Over the past few years the groove has been the same, and a little change would be cool.

Tight Rapunzel opener followed by a kick to the nuts with If I Had It All. I listened to this without looking at the set, or the previous night's. So Right was pretty good, Grey Street was great. Loving Wings was new and boring. Highlight of the show was probably Jimi, 2002 being it's best year, IMO. They absolutely EXPLODE into the last chorus and the musical theme they toyed with often that year followed into a great solo by Dave. Probably after 5/23, it's my favorite version of the year. I always love Fool to Think and You Never Know. I remembered seemingly ever single encore that tour being Gravedigger - What You Are, so Ants was a great surprise. Still though, the show wasn't great, few standout song versions. ** 3/4

This is a pretty damn difficult show for me to grade. The Everyday opener is pretty neutral for me (it doesn't bug me nearly as much as most around here), but I really wasn't a fan of Fishtender in the 2/3 slot. Especially after a mellow opener, IMO Fish is way too dreary at that point. Carter and Butch have some nice work in Bartender, and Dave really gets into this version, but the Leroi/Rashawn is just WAY too drawn out. Things really don't get much better the next few songs, as the If I Had it All/Loving Wings/Crash run keeps things really, really mellow (despite Leroi and Rashawn's best attempts at spicing up the first two of that run). Of course, I probably shouldn't have begged about energy with Hunger coming up at that point. A very nice Idea of You and Grey Street seem to get things moving, finally, but Stolen Away and Can't Stop back to back is just brutal (after the Dave solo version, I had almost forgotten how bad the guitarless, slow Can't Stop was). This show up to this point just can't get any sort of momentum. The Last Stop is absolutely perfect right here, and this is a real nice and tight '06 version (props in particular to the horns again and to Carter). I love where they took this song last year, and it really breathed some life into this set. Nancies and WWYS were a nice follow up before the "improv" intro and Bayou with RR to close. I really dig the "improv" in particular; hopefully whatever song this is shows up this year, and Bayou with RR and Rashawn are just a great fit. So Right is pretty badass with great work by Rashawn and Carter in particular, before Stay closes things out.

So all in all, some real good playing by the band and a nice end run salvages a pretty awful setlist. Again, tough for me to grade this one. I'll give it 2.5 stars (their playing rates 3-3.5 stars, making up for at best a 2 star setlist).

Funny story on that show. A while ago I was B+Ping 4-7-95 out to a bunch of people on ants I got a email back from a guy. Apparently he was a taper and taped 4-7 as well as a lot others that weren't in circulation. 4-10 was one of them. The DAT's and cassettes went to Sarah Baucco, she nicely converted them and now we have them.

Anyway here's the notes he had about 4-10-95:

Three days later they play at a club called The Edge in Orlando. Same
scenario for taping, no line out! Jeff's mom was there and he asked me to
send her a copy of the show. He wouldn't even let his mom get a SBD!!!!! It's
a great show, closes with "Angel from Montgomery" and "Halloween." The show was basically the last "club" they played. "Spotlight" during soundcheck.
Leroi left his sax (the ivory one he plays for "Ants") at the hotel so I had
to (got to) run him to the hotel to get it.....sorry having flashbacks.
Anyway, it's your too, if you want it.

Fantastic show from start to finish. Last Stop is one of my favorite openers so I was immediately pulled into the show. Two Step in the second slot was something very different and I wished it was a shorter version, but no-one should complain about Two Step being played. The middle of this show is where the real fun starts. Warehouse through Billies is non-stop energy and fun. The Typical/Pig packs quite a one-two punch. I give this show *** and recommend anyone who hasn't heard it to check it out.

Review: This is a nice show. First off I really don't like Satellite as an opener at all. Gets better after that with a great run of songs including a AATW early in the set possibly the earliest in a set I have ever seen it played and a real nice version of #36 (this needs to come back) After Bartender which was fantastic they throw in a few standards but, I would recommend listing to ASTB. Roi puts a different twist on it which I have not heard before. Not a fan of LBV but, the crowd actualy seemed really into it. Decent encore with Grace is gone and Ants. All in all a nice show but, then again how shows from 2000 aren't.

Great summer 98 show.! DDTW is always a nice opener. Really cool version of Astb and I like the Encore as well I can not remember too many shows that Rhyme or Reason has closed. I miss how fast they used to perform rapunzel although it sounds a bit more polished now. This is a nearly perfect setlist imho. All in all a great show and nice sounding source.

Basically a typical 06 show but, I really like the encore with Dreamingtree and Ants. The New songs songs sounded good. another show with a DDTW opener but, I actually think its a great opener so no complaints here. 06.28 was the better show though for Tweeter imo. I really wish they would take WTWE out of rotation for a while.

This was such a great show to listen to yesterday. The band was really on Dave seemed to be having a great time. only bathroom break song imo was Can't stop and it was only 2 and half minutes long. The start of the show was great with BOWA, pig, say goodbye & DDTW. Shotgun good but, you could tell it still needed work. nice encore with JTR -> Ants. If you don't have this show......... get it

Just wondering...is that out of 4 or 5 *?

The nice thing about that Can't Stop is that is was the first time played as a real song, so it was neat because it was new. After hearing it 8 million times after that, it sort of lost its appeal, but it wasn't that bad that night.

Overall a really nice show. Sweet start with Seek up -> Lerio Solo -> PnP -> Rapunzel.
Other highlights were ddtw, Crush, and an amazing #41. The show as a whole had a great flow to it. Decent encore with lover lay down and watchtower The only thing that stops this show from getting 4 or more stars is a couple of 1998 staples that were not played .

It's a set to die for today as certain songs from this set have gotten a bit more rare. The only OSW of the tour, uncommon Minarets, True and WWYS were probably gems back when the show took place. However, very little energy transfered on to tape. "Blah" is best way I would describe it. Nothing was bad, but really only Nancies was anything more than tame. I was bored during a show that contains 3 of my current top 5 (Say Goodbye, Nancies & Minarets). I think that even considering Crash is very collection of tunes, and a very good handful shows betray the fact that the rest of the shows from this mini-tour are a bit unsatisfying. The Nancies is very good with a long intro; I'm not sure I've heard a bad one (sans skree of course). What can you say about the encore. It was the encore at my first show also, and it wasn't any good live, either. If I've only listened to 10 shows in my life, I'm sure none would be lower than ***, but seeing as that's not the way things are, * 3/4.

Ya know, when I was like…
When I was like 15 years old
I used to have long hair
And used to have studs coming out of my throat
Used to have…
I used to drink and scream with little dogs
And scare children
I used to listen to the Sex Pistols
I used to listen to…
I used to listen to Iron Maiden
And I used to listen to…
Anything that was too loud to bear
I’d listen to…
And I saw straight up and down that I was gonna scream
And scream
And scream
And scream
And life went on…
But if I looked at myself today, I’d say
“Hey, what a queer little quiet melodic motherfucker that guy is”
Oh my God, I’d turn around and say….
“Hey, you never know…..”

Don’t you ever wonder…..
Maybe if you took a left turn, instead of taking that right
You’d be somebody quite different tonight
Don’t you ever wonder
Man, could have I been somebody quite different from me
Somebody with a different scene

Don’t you ever wonder
Maybe, maybe if the day came up and I rose, instead of sleeping late, I’d be somebody Other than myself
Somebody

August 7, 2003 - The Gorge Amphitheatre - George, Washington

While a touch short of an absolutely special show, this show is everything that was right about 2003. It lacks Boyd's awfulness, the setlist features many of the solid returns like a truly majestic and hypnotic Dreaming Tree, Spoon and Minarets; along with the SMTS » Rapunzel. #41 has no Everyday outro, and the segue into Everyday was a nice touch. The Minarets is worth a 3/4 * in itself. I honestly believe it's one of the top 5 non-guest infused performances of the past 10 years with Bartender from Boston 02 and Seek Up from SPAC 01. It is a special performance with an incredible build. Dave and Carter crescendo in sync like they'd played the song every night for the last 6 years. **** 1/2

The Best of What's Around
Drive In Drive Out

review: Let's see how far I can get through the 1999 Summer Tour before I get so sick of Lie In Our Graves and Jimi Thing that I can't take it anymore. This show is uninspired. The setlist is solid. Putting things in perspective, What Would You Say was a good tour opener. Maceo Parker guested on a few versions at the end of 1998, but before that, it hadn't been in the rotation since 1996. Dave loses lyrics in Rhyme & Reason leading to some interesting improv, but the same can't be said for Two Step or Rapunzel. Normal strong Roi songs like Lover Lay Down & Heartbeat are really flat. Warehouse and Typical are average versions (still pretty good), the encore reads better than it played. The highlight of the show for me was So Much To Say (http://www.sendspace.com/file/jqvmde). It's not a favorite of mine, it just kind of exists to me. But this version is clearly better than most. This show also suffers from what's going to become a theme of this tour, 2 - 3 minutes of crowd noise between songs. Thank God Dave no longer tunes on stage. "twang twang twang twang twang" * 3/4

Been meaning to pick that one up for some time now. I've heard nothing but good things.

Just popped this in.

Heh, I am listening to this one now too. In fact I am just now getting to it despite saying I would look into it almost a year ago...

Listened through WAYG and some girl shouts, "Yeah Butch!" after the song is over. I bet he was banging her.

Ladies and gentlemen, Keen Eddie has discovered why Butch left the band. He got busted banging some girl he met at the Gorge.

He got tired of being mixed up with Butch Taylor the porn star, so he decided to merge both professions into one.

bold - tour debut
italics - song debut

review: A much better effort than night one, everyone feels more comfortable, but Dave's voice is already starting to go and good lord Boyd is really, really bad. 2003 bad. The first 8 minutes of The Last Stop are great, but if you told me Boyd was playing a different song during the outro, I would believe you. Pig is great until the end and The Stone is a nightmare even with Roi throwing in a clip of Can't Help Falling In Love. Yet somehow, he's really good on Lie In Our Graves. This is actually a really good version of it. Other pluses, Two Step was really good. This was right after Two Step got the expansion in the Fall 1998 Tour, and Dave starting a taking a solo, usually pretty basic, but always tasty, this one is no exception and is the highlight of the show (http://www.sendspace.com/file/29f3hj). There's an interesting bit before DDTW as Dave plays around with a riff for about a minute. It was something in his head as it has a section change, then he goes back into it as Don't Drink fades. This was the first full band version of The Long Black Veil, more country than the rest and he hasn't fully gotten the range down yet. He switches back and forth between octaves. No jam at all, just a nice version after a bit of vocal uncomfortability (http://www.sendspace.com/file/7zlm8c). I absolutely hate What Would You Say to end a set or a show. Better than night 1, a flash of brilliance, but still just average at best **.

source: sr77 - very good

DMBlive desire: little to none. Recording is good, I'd rather not hear Boyd more clearly than I already can.

4 1/2* There are a few "meh" moments in the first half, but nothing bad. Spoon through to the end of the show kills though. It helps that I'm a fan of Help Myself and the SMTS :segue Rapunzel combo. And hot damn, that Minarets :upyours

Can't say I've listened to many shows from the first leg of '03, but this is one of the only ones that actually lives up to the setlist you see on paper.

It's great to have heard a version so many times and know it so well that you can picture them on stage performing it, then you get to see it. I'm not a video collector or watcher at all, really. I had never seen this nor did I know it was out there. Thanks.

Good representative of the early '06 tour IMO, completely with some really cool things they were doing that year and some pretty rough things as well.

The good:

-- one of the stronger shows from Dave, vocally, in the tour
-- WH with the Louie Louie interpolation was a blast
-- Boyd's solos in Nancies and Billies were on point
-- Carter's intro to Say Goodbye was, as always, excellent
-- anytime Raven, Typical Situation and JTR show up in the same set and are even played decently is a treat

The meh:

-- the 'Roi/Rashawn jam on Crush was a bit marred by Rashawn being flat at first and trying too hard for a climax at the end (typical of '06)
-- the flute is definitely missing from the Say Goodbye intro and the pennywhistle missing from JTR was unfortunate (one of my favorite touches of '06 shows)
-- OSW was pretty flat and WWYS started this way until 'Roi salvaged a good climax to the jam
-- slow! I had forgotten how slow a lot of these shows were at times and it's particularly noticeable on Raven and WWYS here

The ugly:

-- Smooth Rider and Can't Stop, may you never cunt up a set again

I'll give it *** 1/2. Would I want it as a release? Not really. Would I have left the show satisfied? Yup. Is it worth listening to? If you like what they were doing in '06, then certainly. If it's a year that you just don't care for, then you'd probably want to pass on this as well.

a great sounding soundboard that is often overlooked with a killer "watchtower" with leroi going off. the "recently" is also really good with dave fading the show out and thanking the (probably small) crowd. winter '95 is really a great tour with some outstanding recordings and this is definitely a keeper!

Classic '96 show and one of the better sounding AUD's from that year. Very little time between songs, excellent song flow, Happy B-Day jam to LeRoi, dream setlist for that era, stellar sounding Angel from Montgomery in the encore. Definately Live Trax worthy. Along with 11/9 and 12/31, this is a must have from 96.

Crash Into Me
Ants Marching

bold - tour debut

review: George Washington - first U.S. President, Roald Amundsen - first to the South Pole, Anthony Munoz - first true Bengal inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, me - first person to ever listen to this show from house music to house music. There's not a lot to say. The recording is ok at best. It's very hot, not the easiest to listen to. Dave's voice is trashed making songs like Pay For What You Get (http://www.sendspace.com/file/3gui9x), Crash Into Me and So Much To Say rough. It is actually this stretch of shows that starts the consistent screaming instead of the falsetto on songs like Don't Drink the Water and Crash (though not this shows), though he does do the "take these chanCESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!" in Ants that has become a staple. Boyd is better than West Palm, but some rough moments, especially in Ants. The only notable thing about the show is that the Carter solo intro to Rhyme and Reason makes its first appearance since early 1994. The improv jam is just them joking around with a bit of a country riff for a little bit. I'm sure this show is better with a better recording, but three shows in, it's the worst show of the tour so far * 1/2.

source: csb - pretty clear, but levels run very hot leading to a fair amount of distortion

DMBlive desire: little to none. Recording is worthy of being upgraded, but the show isn't.

Lie In Our Graves

bold - tour debut

review: Probably the best show of the tour so far, which isn't saying much. Really just an average show. Typical is always nice, Tripping Billies is interesting as Dave waits until the second time around to start with the first verse. Long Black Veil is pretty funny as when he goes to start the third verse, he sings the first line of the first verse, stops as he realizes it's wrong, then sings the first line of the second verse, stops as he realizes it's wrong before finally getting the right the lyrics (http://www.sendspace.com/file/xlthtk). Lie In Our Graves has the "dance away" like most closing versions. True Reflections is our tour debut and Boyd takes a nice solo where he plays some actual rhythms other than straight crosscut sawed 16th notes (http://www.sendspace.com/file/w7xv8y). (**).

source: daud - pretty solid recording actually, better than I remembered. Some heavy digi-noise at the beginning of the opener.

DMBlive desire: little to none - still nothing special

8/20/95 is :upyours

That reminds me, I listened to 8/11/95 again yesterday and I should probably grade it. First half of the show is your standard '95 fare, that is to say, it's good. Eyes is great, Dave is justifiably a little awkward, but I still think it sounds really good. Makes me wonder who's idea it was to play this particular song as a tribute. Dave clearly wasn't familiar with it. 41 Police is great, love the lyrics about prayer. The Recently is awesome, Dave throws some Eyes lyrics in at the end too which is pretty funny all things considered. The encore is great. Yeah, I know, same as Red Rocks and LT5, but there is something about those solo Typicals that doesn't get old, and I really liked this Watchtower. 4 3/4*

ants opened for the first time in 7 years that night. the band was very tight, lerois solo was beautiful on LLD, the jam in warehouse was outstanding. BOWA to two step to billise to end the set was extreme. and the encore was great. i dont know. its just a great 2000 summer tour show. we all know how great that yaer was. i dont think i need to explain why its so great.

then you're in the wrong thread, brotha. I think this is the only thread I've made here in 2 years, I'm protective of the format. I'm sure there's a "I just listened to ____" thread somewhere that is perfect for that. If one catches your fancy enough to spend a few non-forced words on it and dish out some snowflakes, there's always a place for it in here.

That is a good show, I agree. Did you know...

yep. i was there. and the only reason i mention that is because it was a very great show. are there better ones from 2000? absolutely, but we know of them and sometimes i think its better to mention the shows that fly under the radar. IMO most of those stadium shows minus 7/12/00 never ever get talked about, and they are all great.

to go to your point about stay, i remmeber being there and pretty much assuming stay was closing the show after thinking two step was closing the set. but then they played billies and was shocked when rapunzel ended.

dave is in good spirits and the band is breaking out some "new" tunes on their forthcoming album "crash". awesome "41" and "crash into me" that sound almost finished. a rambunctious crowd that dave mentions to move back (stupid meatheads). typical early banter. no segue between "nancies" and "warehouse" but dave sounds out of his mind (funny stuff).

leroi kills "warehouse".

full band "little thing" with very interesting lyrics. not your normal d&t lyrics. pretty deep stuff.

plus a cool "watchtower" with bruce hornsby.

This is why I can't get enough of August '95. It really doesn't have one "defining show", if there is such a thing for an era. I think it's what makes some eras just so damn good, like December '98 and D&T's '96 tour. Every show is just so damn special in its own little way.

5/15/01 Here's a show I listened to recently. This was the last show to not feature Butch before 2008. Starts out nice enough with a One Sweet World, but trouble sets in right after that. It's interesting to hear these Everyday songs so early in their development. They sound bland, sloppy, and pretty uninspired here. This was over two weeks into the tour and it's easy to tell the band was in trouble. My guess is they welcomed Butch with open arms at the next show - the Everyday songs were just not working without him. It's too bad too, because I find this early Big Eyed Fish to be pretty good. And the songs with Soulive are great. The WWYS and Jimi are hot. The #41 is a gem and should grace a Warehouse 5 disc some day. Too bad they had to add the Everyday outro to it. Overall though a pretty tired effort. 2 1/2* and that's getting a 1* boost just from the Soulive songs.

I feel every word of that review and I agree one hundred percent. It is a pretty good show that just sounds they are going through the motions on most of it with the stadium tour coming up. I thought a lot of the west coast run in 2000 was like that. I mean the shows were ok and all, it was just hard to feel that they were into it. I really like the Fish » Bartender from that show as well. First time they did that segue.

I'm gonna reiterate that I'd like to see that #41 on a bonus disc. Even from a poor year like '01 you still got a handful of really great performances. There are a number of great Grey Streets from '01. The SPAC Seek Up also comes to mind, as does a good chunk of 7.25.

Still probably their worst year as a whole though. Even '05 I find to be better.

Nice to hear a Warehouse > Nancies, and the Nancies has a great "Once in a Liftime" intro. Also the Bridge > ? stuff from '03 was cool, this Bridge > Stay is a nice transition. Also, this one has a pretty nice YNK, but I don't think anyone's paid it much attention :rolleyes For the most part though, this show is just OK. 3*

The set can be as good as anything we've seen, but if it isnt performed well... well, then the show just isn't good.

Exactly. It's so hard to find a really unique set that was actually played well. Look at '03, band was on fire in September but by then they had dropped the vast majority of the rarities they were playing earlier that year.

Hmph, on another note here's a challenge: find a good show from before '98 where Ants isn't on the set.

Yeah, that #41 is fantastic...and I agree with your ED outro comment.

8/2/03 Hmmm, don't know what to make of this one. Dave's voice was not fairing well this evening. He makes a mess of a number of songs, particularly the Cry Freedom. Boyd isn't quite as bad here, but he still manages to drag down a few songs. The boys kinda miss the transition to the reprise in Last Stop. On the plus side, this one has a decent midset Watchtower with Kirk from the Roots. Also, if you like What You Are (and I know not all of you do) this one is fairly decent. Can't knock an E1 Maker either. All in all pretty average. 2 3/4*

7/12/03 - listened to this one earlier today. I am starting to think listening to these leg 1 '03 shows is slow torture :lol Show starts out strong with a great WWYS, Granny, Grey Street, and YNK. Then the tour debut of I Did It hits. Ugh. IDI is never good live, but this one is particularly bad. And from then on the show just seems to get completely away from them. It's never enough to make it a complete mess, but they can't seem to get through a single song for the rest of the set without something going wrong, usually a skree or a vocal flub. By the time the encore rolls around I think they know it just wasn't their night and they are just going through the motions. 2 1/2*

Celluloid, since you're devising the system here, give me a few examples of a five star show. Just curious.

At least the way I'm doing this, I think there should should only be a handful of true ***** shows. If you have thirty or forty, then where is there to go from there? How do you separate them into the very best? Anything ****+ is a special show.

Another way I'm judging is not by what isn't there, but what is there. I gave Giants Stadium 98 a **** 3/4 instead of ***** because of the brutal Rapunzel fuck up. Not because they played Last Stop and #36 at Foxborough instead.

Therefore it's hard for me to say, without having just listened to a show, whether it is ***** or not because there may be something. Off the top of my head, Red Rocks is, I think 8.5.2004 is the best show they've played this decade. Live Trax 1 is to me.

The interesting thing about Tim shows, is now we have some truly great recordings of them. I was just always so used to straining to hear how he fit in with the band outside of the 3 released shows we have. It makes me want to hear those old shows on DMBlive so much more now. I think that's part of why I was so excited to hear the Grand Rapids show that I posted the Minarets and Typical from. Fresh old Tim. I'm rambling at this point. I have reviews of 5.7.99 and 5.8.99 to put up then I think I'm going in search of a ***** show.

I've gone back and forth with Matthew for years about 5.20, a lot of it is me pushing his buttons. It's really good, it has two near catastrophic fuck ups in The Last Stop and Tripping Billies, but most of the stuff with Béla is amazing.

5.17 may have the most epic run of songs I've ever seen

I am with you on all of that. I'd say you need something pretty special to reach the five star mark. Red Rocks '95, New Year's '96, and the obligatory Fall '98 shows (12/3, 12/7, 12/8) are probably the big ones for me.

Funny you should mention 8/5/04, that plays into another discussion I've been meaning to drum up lately, just haven't had time to start the thread. I do think it's one of the best shows in recent years, but the best this decade? I think there are a few that were better. But that's the beauty of opinions right? :lol

5/20/98 Maybe this show got a little overhyped for me. Great setlist and a Flecktones appearance is nothing to take for granted. There is absolutely nothing like a LIOG with Bela. Usually guests are just icing on the cake for me, but I don't think I'll ever be truly satisfied as a DMB fan until I get a Graves with Bela at one of my shows. The #41 is also very good, complete with Flecktones intros (weird hearing Dave intro Coffin as being "right next to Roi" right now). However there are major breakdowns in Billies and Last Stop, and skreeing during the reprise to boot. There are also minor flubs on almost all of the other BTCS songs too. They were still getting used to these songs. Still a very good show though. 4 1/4*

9.11.03-Hershey Park Stadium, Hershey, PA 4 1/4*

This was my second ever DMB show. This show was 2 years after the 9/11 events and I still tell my friends that I think the band wanted to make a musical tribute to those who were affected by those events.The setlist is damn near perfect. The only song I could do without was Where Are You Going.

This is still by far my favorite Seek Up and I would love for a sbd release of this. I know this version has been discussed time and time again on the boards but Roi is a beast on this song. From the jazzy more jammed out intro to the dark sinister outro its just an amazing 22 min listen. Carter and Roi really rip Seek Up a new asshole at the end. LeRoi really shines the most during this show.

I think there is just something amazing about the September run of the tour. Boyd really wasn't as out of tune as he was in June and the band was really on top of their game.I know this show may not have Spoon, The Dreaming Tree, or The Last Stop but I can listen straight through this show and enjoy every minute of it.

The opening run of Seek Up-->Warehouse is amazing. I still think its one of the best runs I've seen open a show out of 16. #41-->Everyday was a pretty special moment of the show when Dave gave his 9/11 speech and this Jimi Thing was one of the first that Dave started doing the scat instead of his solo. Cry Freedom was another special moment that night. I think the song was very fitting and the whole stadium was pretty much dead silent during this performance. Star Spangled Banner had everyone singing the national anthem and I remember Dave being pretty happy that everyone was singing. This Watchtower is still my favorite version that I caught live and Two Step being the encore was just a great way to end this show.

All and all a good show to listen to straight through. I know I was there for this show but I would love for this to be released one day as either a LiveTrax or DMBLive release. Eric Naylor's recording of this is really good and is a pleasure to listen to.

We have other shows that are days apart or have similar setlists, but a good show is still a good show. I can say after seeing both of these shows that although they share a lot of common songs, both of the performances and moods are quite different. IMO, this one would be a strong candidate for the DMBLive series.

I was fully prepared to stop listening to shows - I need a break, I feel like I've been listening to DMB nonstop for month's now. But this show popped up on dt, and it's one I've been meaning to listen to, and it was still freeleach, so one more review-

10/2/04 - Ah, now here's a show. Solid performances all around. Fantastic setlist, flawless in fact. I don't know if any of these songs stand out (this GGT in particular I just find to be kinda blah compared to others from the summer). Dave does botch Ants. Carter I think screws up Hello Again (Almanac says he comes in playing Joyride) but it's not bad by any stretch. I don't find Butch to be as overbearing as he was in all those '03 shows I was listening to recently. Really nothing to complain about here at all. I do think I like a handful of '04 shows better than this one, but this one gets a bonus for a perfect setlist. 4 1/2* Maybe 4 3/4* Can I do 4 5/8*? :lol

I got one. 3-31-03. http://dmbalmanac.com/TourShowSet.aspx?id=453055958&tid=70&where=2003

I got this one in the summer of '03, and it was by far my favorite show of that D&T tour (even though I was at 3-22). It popped in my mind again when 3-29 came out. This is out of memory so if I confuse some parts with other shows from the tour I apologize.

The set deviates from the standard '03 set early with a real nice Best of What's Around. Tim's solo really sours on it. If I remember right, Dave turns to Tim during the solo and just watches with admiration while the spotlight is only on Tim (The DVD for this show is fantastic). I personally think this Big Eyed Fish was the best of the tour, and really made me fall in love with the song. BEF is hit or miss for me, depending on whether Dave can hit the high notes after the bridge. He nails it on this one. The show becomes even more special with the only Wyona of the tour. I never get tired of that song, especially D&T. A full version of Blue Water was a really nice treat for this show as well. I can't remember much else about this show, so I assume the rest was standard. The only disappointment I can remember is Christmas Song falling apart. The tape and DVD are top notch.

I'm scared to rate it though. I got Luther College in '99, and that was all I had until I saw 3.22.03 and then received tapes from that tour a few months later. Point being, I might remember it as being alot better than it was because I wasn't as exposed...

So I'll say *** 1/2 to play it safe. But I remember it as a ****

The '03 D&T, at least for me, was sooo boring. I mean yes there were some fantastic performances and the debut of Stay Or Leave, but overall it was just a very boring tour. Tim was so flat during that run too and it hurt a lot of performances, imo. I think if anything D&T's opening sets for the D&F's shows later in the year were much better than anything from the March/April(May) run.

good review, but I think the thread is better served for what you *just* listened to, especially the new assignment, to see what you now think about a show that you used to hold in high regard but haven't heard in a while.

Everything in this thread should be what you've heard in the last couple days at the most, but again, good review.
