I can't believe how many people dislike Listener Supported. Before LT 3, this was easily my favorite official release. Sure, there's Stay and TR, but I love the pace of the show and Dave's voice is top-notch.

The Stone on this was my most listened to track from probably 2002-2005. I used to listen to it non-stop when I was in college.

Considering it was from '99 and before 4 other albums were released...not really.

Wait, I'm confused.

Did I say or even insinuate anything otherwise? I was being nostalgic, not critical.

this and the Ladies is why i can't listen to more than a few songs.

I hear that. Some people love DMB On Crack (circa 1991-1997 and 2008-present). I enjoy it too, but I enjoy it a bit more when they play mellower shows and sort of fall into a nice groove.

It's a good show, imo. Best live release? No. Best mix? Yes.

I agree there's some nostalgic value because it was one of the first few official releases, first VHS/DVD release. I still love the way it was filmed too.

i do like the mix and how it was filmed, although i'm kind of glad that they've released a dvd now that has been done better.

I agree that this is still by far the best Stone that's been released. Boyd so often falls out of tune in the last section, and I hate Carter's crap at the transition into the last mellow section that he's been playing for a few years. This one is flawless, no one gets off, Carter doesn't push the song too hard... it's beautiful.

Not much else from LS has stayed in the playlists, though. I think that LT3, CP, and LT8 all have beaten LS at its own game. The 41 is beautiful, but I think I like the LT8 one better.

It was the first DMB album of any kind that I owned though; I had Luther College and then this before I bought any studio albums. So it's still the DMB sound I fell for. I recognize that with Tim & Jeff now the performances are much more technically impressive, but I'll still take the chill, jazzy Butch-sound over that any day.

I'm hoping they perform with more of a jazzy groove this summer too. I'm getting tired of the rock act

Scat, FWIW, Sexy Mother Fucker, Random Gimmick, and FWIW all need to fucking stop. Make the song be about the song, and not some cheap crap designed to get a rise out of the crowd.

That's not to say that stuff like that isn't cool from time to time. But when you do it every single time, it takes the impact right out of it.

Nothing has topped the filming of Listener Supported. The angles, and camera movements, the lighting and audio mix, it's just perfect. Some of the show may be a toss-away but as others mentioned 41, The Stone, Rhyme, 40, Watchtower, are all fantastic performances.

I do like this show as well because it was a specific moment when as fans we sorta knew the band was heading in a certain direction. Whether you like(d) that direction or not, I still think it's really cool that we're able to go back and watch that moment. That show definitely showcased the slow-paced DMB that we'd come to know for the next few years.

Yeah...1999 is such a strange year for DMB history. They put the breaks on their music, slowing a lot of the tunes down by 10-20 clicks. They lost some of the rawness that year, and got a little "bigger" as far as production, stage and lighting. And as far as I'm concerned, 1999 was the last year where Dave had that immaturity in his voice. Less grovel, and more of that sharp, "whiny" sound. 2000 was the first year where his voice sounded aged. 1999 had some great setlists, and some classic performances, but overall, it's not revered. 1998 and 2000 blow it out of the water in my mind.

I remember when this show came out being so very excited. I mean all we had at that time full band was red rocks and I had just about worn that cd out.

There are many highlight on this show for me. The two that really pop out at me are Two Step and of course #41. Plus I love the sound quality of this release. It might not be the same higher energy that Red Rocks gave us but it is still quite a delightful release.

love this release. IDK about you guys, but when I give suggestions to someone new to DMB, I always say listen to RR '95 first (release that shows the band at a classic time) and then LS (I think this shows the band with a more mature sound at that time and it shows cases their musical talent. ex. #41) Then I move onto CP and so forth.

MaLaKaS
01-19-2012, 03:05 PM
I am currently listening to this show. I haven't popped it on in a few years, so I figured I would be spontaneous and listen to it again. I really like this release a lot, despite the complaints. It's a very sweet and smooth performance. Up to #36 so far.

I still think LS has the best versions of #41 and The Stone released ever. There have been a lot of them, but I'll take this #41 over any of the 15-minute-plus #41s with guests or lots of extra solos any day. Violin, flute, sax, tiny little Dave ending: succinct and beautiful.

Same for Stone. Coffin makes the jam into something huge and epic, but I like it simple and perfect myself, and it's just amazing how many other Stones have Boyd not being able to hit that high C in the violin line in the ending. He nails it on this one.

:upyours I agree wholeheartedly. It remains firmly entrenched as my favorite after all these years, for all the reasons you stated. And Dave nails it vocally.

I like this Stone too, no doubt. But I've been really digging the Coffin ones lately (e.g, LT19 Rio).

Haven't listened to this whole show in a long time.

Lazy Saturday afternoon here, so I popped the DVD in. Two old thoughts were validated.

I miss Roi and this 41 is the best DMB video track, hands down.

Two new thoughts, Jeff needs to pull out the flute more often and there's no reason he can't occasionally play the horns with some subtlety.

I know what you mean.

I saw jeff at my first maybe 5 shows. including 12/8/98. i remember thinking back then, "man why can't roi jam out hard like Jeff does"

he could, and maybe does, occasionally play with more subtlety. I think it will still be a different kind of subtly than roi. As its said roi was most beautiful in the quite moments. and when he would jam harder, his arrangements would blend with the whole band so he didn't single out as much as jeff. there was that Batson quote where he characterized each member and said something like, "when roi takes off the whole band goes with him"

Jeff has a talented trained voice. Roi's was truly unique. It may be though that its not in jeff style.

Just some of the best released versions of Stone, Warehouse, Rhyme, Two Step, Watchtower, and of course #41.

I'm pretty biased because I am a complete Martin fanboy, but I always enjoyed when Dave played the Martin with the band. I never bought into the "Taylor cuts through the mix crap" that Dave said. The three piece back models are just really powerful guitars... makes the warehouse intro sound pretty badass. It makes Dave's intricate riffs sound more meaty and full, especially on Rhyme and Stone. The added bass it also gives shines through on that release. The new guitars he plays are closer to the sound I enjoy the most from him, but still not quite there. That was one of my few complaints about AFTW- I missed hearing the Lakewood or Martin a bit.

Thrawn
09-10-2013, 11:00 AM
Absolutely the best Stone and #41. Their '99 sound wasn't as good at the rocking songs, especially Too Much which is fairly atrocious, but when this show slows down it's incredible. I also really like this Granny.

This was actually my second DM related disc. I got Luther College first, absolutely fell in love with it. I saw a huge poster for this at the mall when it came out, and bought this cd. I was so into Luther that it collected dust for a long time. Fell in love with it after I listened to it. Kinda weird first exposure to the band, but it did the trick.

That Two Step intro is one of my favorites by Dave as well

Watching Dave play The Stone on the LS DVD made me decide to get guitar lessons. Now I play like 4 instruments and I'm getting paid to teach an afterschool class in music theory next semester. (I teach 8th grade math as a job, but they have a program that pays us for extra classes that we come up with.)

Ha, we have similar stories.

I first heard Luther College about 6 months after I started playing guitar. Took awhile to pick up Dave songs though cause I taught myself (stubborn little kid haha). No doubt that Dave had a big influence on the way I still play today.

Love the DM3MD/LS sound, but could never justify the price tag. I own an HD-35, and when I went to play a DM3MD I realized I was paying 3-4 grand for Dave's signature and prettier wood pretty much (very similar sound IMO).

I posted earlier in the thread that I MUCH prefer Dave with the Martin's... what's your take on that?

Thrawn
09-15-2013, 06:12 PM
LS is definitely my favorite acoustic sound of his, so I'm in agreement there, but I think my preferences are a little less strong than yours. As long as he isn't playing the Chet, I'm happy. That thing sounded like ass, I don't care how well it "cut through" the rest of the band's sound.

I'm one of those fools who wishes he could play a guitar. Being blind probably has something to do with why I haven't picked it up. Against my wishes, a friend bought me one years ago. It lays in my bedroom closet in its case. Maybe one day it'll get some use? It's just a cheapie though. But then again, why start with something greater if I don't even know how to play?

Eh, I'll probably end up giving it away.

Don't give it away man! It would definitely be more challenging for ya to learn but I have no doubt you could. It's such an easy instrument to teach yourself... if my 9 yr old self could do it anyone could

My favorite tone Dave had with the band too, wish he used a Martin guitar more often with the band.

Seriously though, #41, Stone, Rhyme and Reason, Warehouse, AATW, and Two Step are some of my favorite performances of the Butch era. That 41 has one of my favorite Roi solos of all time as well

Love it or hate it, pretty wild to listen to this particular Two Step compared to nowadays.

Great LBV. A rare instance where the ladies are a nice touch.

I used to watch the VHS of this show over and over again on the exercise bike my dad had, when I decided to stop being a lazy fatass. Thanks Listener Supported!

Giving this one a listen for the first time in a long time. I remember loving it a lot when it came out, then getting a little bored with it. Coming back to it, I love it again. Aside from that #36 atrocity, it's pretty great. Even the slower Rapunzel still packs a punch.

I love this Two Step. A lot.

I agree, up to those interminable last couple of minutes. Then I just want them to end the song because nothing is happening.

Yeah this show isnt a good representation of the tunes I like, BUT, the performances are interesting, well done, and it's nice to see the eager '90's crowd basking in it.

That all said, I've told this before, but the third time I ever did shrooms I watched Listener Supported and cried about 4 songs in because I missed Roi so much and was full of emotion. Turned it off after the #41 solo because I couldn't bear any more negativity/memories.

I'm still quite hurt by the loss, but anyone who knows what I'm saying understands how hard I felt that loss in that moment.

As I've said, I took a long time off from the band between '05 and this summer, but there was one, and only one, time that I listened to them during that stretch, and it was the evening of the day that Roi died, when I put on this #41, stared out the window and cried during that solo.

On a related note, Roi fucking kills on this show. This might be his overall best released performance, no matter what you think about the rest of what was going on.

Ok, I started this show up. It's been a few years since I have listened to this fully through. It should be a great memory :upyours

I had it in my head that this show was kind of slow and sleepy, but upon listening the other day I discovered that while it does have a lot of slower tempos, they still play with a lot of energy and the performance is nearly flawless. I could do without the LL #36. But other than that it's pretty great.

:upyours I fully agree. I'm up to "Crash Into Me" and I'm getting that same vibe. Everything sounds perfect.

Spent a couple hours trying to teach my dad how to listen to music on his fancy new iphone (he's 70 :lol ) and one of the albums I threw on it was this. This was the first album I got after Luther, and back in the day it was my dad and I's favorite. We musta bought the cd atleast 5 times with how fast they got scratched from constantly playing em in the car

41 was the first song to come up on shuffle when I was teaching him. We both actually shut up and listened to the whole song. It really is my favorite band 41 I think, every note is perfect. Particularly love the tone of Dave's Martin on the opening, the vocals, and just how perfectly Boyd and Roi pull off that solo together. It's amazing, those two solos follow the energy of the song so perfectly that it feels like only one person was soloing rather than two on opposite sides of the stage

Great concert. Probably my favorite band release in terms of Dave's tone (except for Luther/the lakewood), the good guitar songs just sound fuckin amazing to me. The power in warehouse, rhyme, and the stone especially. Even the intro to AATW sounds fantastic.

I've been meaning to check out for the first time the June '99 show Celluloid recommends alot. If it's anything like this show, I'm pumped

I gotta admit man, I don't think I've listened to any '99 DMB shows in atleast a decade aside for LS. I really gotta get on it. I've been planning on reorganizing my HD and hopefully starting to rediscoved these shows ever since we talking about that HD B&P, but keeps getting pushed back :lol I know I have some '99 SBDs though, I gotta check em out soon :upyours

If you've never heard 5/26 you need to. Download that and 5/30/99 with the flecktones. The sbds are fine, but not the best shows. Eapecially Boyd at the Gorge. Yikes!

I think Listener and the stadium shows are great, but a little gimmicky to judge 1999 DMB on a whole. I recommend 6.3, 6.5, 6.24, 7.28 & 8.1 to get a good sense.

Thanks guys. I listened to 41, Warehouse, and Rhyme from 5/25 today. I friggin loved them. That little drum intro to Rhyme really stuck out, and of course Bela on 41 was amazing. Overall though I really enjoyed the way the lineup sounds (despite it being a crappy SBD).

I don't know how the hell I overlooked '99 for so long. I just remember reading meh reviews on the forums, and when I was first trading I can't think of any shows making the must have lists I read. I am so far from being able to formulate an opinion, but my interest is definitely sparked and I'm gonna check out those shows

Was Dave for the most part using the Martin that year?
