Before LWS was "canceled," some dude posted a tracklist and descriptions of all the songs, and it got everyone all excited, but I have no idea where.

One of the tracks was "The Piper" IIRC.

Anybody have this/remember it?

well son of a bitch:


Hello everyone...well I am lucky enough to have gotten a hold of the demo disc of the new album and here is my review. I am a "friend of a friend" i guess you could say and am in West Virginia attending a party with friends so i figured I'd plug in my laptop and give the lowdown. The title of the album (or what it says on the disc anyways) is "The Road to You"...there is no cover art to report of yet. Here is the setlist:

1. Bring it Back
2. Captain
3. #40 (Always)
4. Let Go of You
5. John the Revelator
6. "Untitled"
7. The Piper
8. An Ocean Away
9. Bartender
10. Falling in the Light
11.Hitchhiker
12.Digging a Ditch

1. BRING IT BACK -with a fairly upbeat tempo, the opener blends a mixture of tribal sounds and classic dmb improvisation with Roi on the sax...the band sounds great on this one and no doubt you will be dancing around the room. The solo at the end is just crazy! The lyrics suffer a little but the improvisation and live sound of the band make up for it...a great opener

2.CAPTAIN -the full band version of this song is quite interesting and adds a new twist to the dave and tim versions i've seen floating on the net. Particularly, the part where dave sings "why should i be hypnotized by someone else's lies why should i forsake time and pride in what someone else believes, yeah, tell me your warning" the band reaches climax...not much of a song to dance to as you already know but it is a good listen.

3. #40 (ALWAYS) -this one is very well done...an instant hit single. The title of the album is derived from a lyric in this song and is very moving with the whole band...however, dave is by himself mostly and the band does not get TOO involved...its just right. One of my favs on the album and i'm glad to see they kept the title

4. LET GO OF YOU -With a very mellow and melancholy mood, this song is far removed from the high energy that "BRING IT BACK" and "CAPTAIN" had established. This song sounds like it was taken directly from the little segue jam that comes right before "Stay" on Before These Crowded Streets. It's a sweet song and has single potential if you ask me.

5. John The Revelator -as of right now, the version i've heard does NOT contain Carlos Santana but still retains some of the energy. Carter goes CRAZY at the end! CRAZY!! Just remember, this is the DEMO disc, not the final one...Carlos could be added but don't ask me because i don't know yet...i'm heading to Wilmington tomorrow and i may get more news on this one. I will update you if i can find internet access there.

6. "UNTITLED" -one thing i must ask...why did they let boyd sing this whole song? Yikes...This song is kind of a love song of sorts but you can't tell really...boyd's solo in the middle and carters handywork at the end could not even save this one. I'm wondering if it will be a B-side...yet they have it on the demo disc. The song was penned by Boyd.

7. THE PIPER -This is a song that sligtly reminds me of powerful songs such as Pig and Typical Situation. It is a full sounding song that uses many overdubs of a Dave & Carter harmony. At one moment in the song it quiets down and Dave sings, "You lead me from my place, my home with your siren song. I follow guided by longed for delight that you fill me up with when you call my name." And then it rises as he starts, "and you tempt me so" and then leroi kicks it in with an amazing solo. This song I had to hit the back button and replay.

8. AN OCEAN AWAY -Judging from the lyrics of this one, Dave is commenting on the situations in South Africa. "Dripping blood to wash away, these slowly aching streets of pain"...reminds me of cry freedom in the way it affects your emotions. Not single material but certainly a great song that I love replaying.

9. BARTENDER -If you ask me, i still prefer the dave and tim version over the full band one but nonetheless dave combines religious imagery and lyrics for a certainly mellow addition to the album. If you've heard the dave and tim version, basically take that and add the band...nothing special in terms of solos, just kinda plain.

10. FALLING IN THE LIGHT -i call it "falling in the light" but technically there is no official title...its just a line that is continually repeated in this very airy type song...i don't know whether this is a jam or a segue or what...more on this later

11. HITCHHIKER -Another one of my favorite songs! The band really comes together and captures their famous live sound. Not only are there great solos but there is even a part where dave just gets pissed and screams bloody murder ala halloween...the band completely crashes in the end of this song with each member getting a solo (except stephan, but he does get a little one)...i wish this could be a single but its a bit long, as are most on this album (typical).

12. DIGGING A DITCH -as hitchhiker slows, it almost seems as if it blends directly into Digging a Ditch...a great closing song on the album. The full band version is not all that different from the regular dave and tim version...there are slight glimpses of the violin and horn...percussion is lightly touched upon.

13. (Jam?) The band kinda does this little jam-out on the end of the album...i dunno if its just on the demo disc or what...who knows? As i said, i'll try to get back to you with news and updates if i can find internet access for my laptop.

here's an update from Lillywhite:

Hi DMB fans everywhere, this is Steve Lillywhite reporting from a secret location somewhere near Charlottesville, Virginia. Let me start at the beginning and hope I don't bore you.

Last fall the band thought it would be a good idea to make their new CD in their hometown so they could be closer to their families. As there are no top-of-the-line recording studios in Charlottesville, they decided to look for a space where they could install the masses of equipment they were buying. This proved to be tricky, as most people with big houses to rent didn't want a band, however clean and tidy they are, to move in for 5 months or so.

We looked far and wide, and were just about to give up and use the band's rehearsal room, when we found our secret location!! A local builder had decided to build himself a house with a large dance hall attached so he could throw parties for all his friends and family. The only problem was that he was so far out of the way that no one came out to play with him.

The house was then put on the market and, due to its peculiar features (who needs a dance hall?), prospective buyers were hard to find. Along come me and the band and immediately we realize this is the place to record.

Anyway, fast forward to mid-January. The equipment is purchased and the band is ready to start. So to start with, the band did what they love best, which is jamming around the tunes Dave had started playing last tour, like "Bartender" and "Digging a Ditch", as well as new songs like "Sweet Up, Sweet Down", and whatever grooves came about.

I suppose the biggest difference on this CD, so far, is the big fat 12-string guitar Dave plays. Also, after enjoying themselves so much on the last tour with just the 5 of them, they decided to do the same in the studio. The resulting sound is sparse, but very much in your face.

I've heard some fans mutter things that "Bartender" and "Digging a Ditch" are not new songs, but to be honest, when you hear the full band play them, you will be surprised at how far they have evolved.

Some people may have heard Boyd mention a country song... well "Grace is Gone" has become more reminiscent of a Daniel Lanois style tune than a Garth Brooks one!

John the Revelator" has been overhauled and is now known as "JTR" because the "John the Revelator" section has been replaced. The song also includes one of the most intense outros we have ever recorded!!

We have about 12 songs we are working on at the moment, some with working titles as diverse as "Kit Kat Jam", "Golden Monkey" and "She My Bitch.

There is much more I could say about this recording, but I will leave it for now as the band members are beginning to arrive for work. Watch out for the next installment!"


and then a DMBML news item from shortly thereafter:


#40

Late in the 1999 Summer tour, Dave Matthews and Stefan Lessard said that the huge fan demand for #40 would make it a major contender for inclusion on the new studio album. The current word is that, due to time restraints to have the new album out by May, #40 will be definitely included on the album. Steve Lillywhite has yet to confirm this song being used, however. #40 debuted on April 5, 1995.

Bartender

Again, Dave Matthews mentioned the presence of Bartender on the new album at the taping of "Austin City Limits." Producer Steve Lillywhite has confirmed both Bartender and Digging a Ditch being on the album, saying that each's full band version sounds "amazing." In a recent Garageband.com webchat, Lillywhite referred to the studio version of Bartender as the "ten-minute epic." Bartender debuted on January 29, 1999.

"Captain" (Crazy)

Another Dave & Tim original, "Crazy" appears to have been reworked for the record. Although nothing official has been announced, friends of the band have reported the song being recorded. Steve Lillywhite has supposedly confirmed this tune being recorded, with the band currently calling it "Captain." "Crazy" debuted on June 3, 1996.

Digging a Ditch

Dave Matthews mentioned at the recent taping of "Austin City Limits" that Digging a Ditch would appear on the new release. Digging a Ditch lyrics from the "Austin City Limits" taping can be found here. This song debuted on February 26, 1999 at a Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds acoustic concert.

"Golden Monkey"

One of the twelve songs that Dave Matthews Band is currently polishing in the studio. The title Golden Monkey is only temporary.

Grace is Gone

Grace is Gone is the country tune that violinist Boyd Tinsley said has been recorded. However, Steve Lillywhite says that the song "has become more reminiscent of a Daniel Lanois style tune than a Garth Brooks one!" (Lanois is the creator of the songs, "The Maker" and "For the Beauty of Wynona," both of which DMB has covered.)

"JTR" (John the Revelator)

Rewritten folktune "John the Revelator" is lined up for inclusion on the album, however, the song is now known as "JTR" since the words "John the Revelator" have been plucked from the chorus. While discussing this track, Steve Lillywhite says, "The song also includes one of the most intense outros we have ever recorded!" In January 1999 Dave Matthews and Carter Beauford recorded this song with Santana for the Latin band's Supernatural record, but "John the Revelator" was chosen not to be included. Noconfirmation of Carlos Santana guesting with the band on the track has been made.

"Kit Kat Jam"

One of the twelve songs that Dave Matthews Band is currently polishing in the studio. The title Kit Kat Jam is only temporary.

"She My Bitch"

One of the twelve songs that Dave Matthews Band is currently polishing in the studio. The title She My Bitch is (hopefully) temporary.

Sweet Up, Sweet Down

A love song written in the downtime between the end of Dave Matthews Band's Summer '99 tour and the beginning of the album recording.

“She’s My Bitch” was a working title for Busted Stuff.
