Still on the road back to Virginia Beach, but had to stop in and see what the vibe was. Last night's show was very good, and I have absolutely no complaints about the band, guests, sound or set list. It was definitely a great show. There seemed to be too much going on behind the stage though. Either the set lists were being changed or their was a sound problem or something. There was just a little too much unnecessary movement back and forth all night. Also, the audience at the end of last night was slient. Everyone knew that they were coming back for an encore, but it was very much expected and the audience was not really deserving of it. IMO. I had a blast, but I think Friday's show was one of the best shows that I have seen in years, ABB or otherwise. They were on Fire! I haven't read anyone else's comments on it yet, but for me, that was well worth every penny it took me to get my butt back to the city. They are still, for my money, the greatest Band in the land, bar none.

I'm sure I'm gonna be pissed I didn't stay for tonight's show, but that's why I go back every single year.

Best!

Great show last night, it was the best of the 4 I caught on this run. Last nights, matched some of the intensity of last years shows. This year was a lot different, shorter sets, extended jams thrown in and less songs per show. Maybe it had to do with less time to prep, with all of the other projects going on. Butch has mentioned this band doesn't need to rehearse and for the most part I believe that, with the exception of Gregg. There was some rust at this years shows, but they did come together and there were outstanding moments. Many of those were last night.

Warren was on fire last night. Looks like he was healthy, bopping around the stage a lot. Derek had some awe inspiring moments, the moments I was looking for this year. Manic Depression was a lot more solid than last Thursday's version, Derek was inspired and finding the groove, Warren on the wah, was also inspired. I've heard hundreds of Statesboro's and they did the outro on a few other versions this run, but last nights was the best version of that song I've ever caught live. Warren on slide, Larry took the second lead and tore it up, Derek did the slide outro, building and builiding, played about 4 verses, then they started 3 way trade offs and built up the 3 part guitar harmoines at the end, just spectacular!! Bernie held his own, throwing in some solid blues riffs, on WBT. Mule with Leo & Cyril was fun, with Leo doing his trademark shredding. Jaimo was playing with Marc, on his kit, while another drummer was playing Jai's kit, during Hey Pocky Way. DWYNM was a better version than others I've heard recently. Sometimes Derek will start his solo off with the one long note, that works well when you have time to build a solo, but just doesn't work, when the solo is short. Last night, he attacked it from the beginning, which made it flow better. Dreams was all Derek and he took a long straight lead solo first, longer than usual and very creative, then launched into slide. He does things in his jams that seem subtle on the surface and sound seemless, yet are so inspired and creative, just jaw dropping. As a guitar player, I just watch/listen in awe, as he makes it seem so easy. Oteil's solo last night was the best I heard from him, as was the drums, with were melodic and lyrical at times. Mt Jam was great, Derek's solo was all straight lead and built to a huge peak and when he hit those funk chords, that triggers Gregg's solo, he was thrashing them. Warren took a slide solo first and felt his way for a while, teased Birdland and then just took off. By the time he hit Dazed, it was just in your face power. Derek was thrashing the chords. This band can go from the subtely of In a Silent Way, to all out rock and roll, like D&C. That say's it all, who else can do that? They didn't do the 2nd part of Mt Jam, like the version last Friday, just went back into the reprise. Lovelight was outstanding, Gregg belting it out really well. Robert Randolph took the first break and was soaring, yet his tone was a bit tinny and thin. It sounding like he was using a wah wah and the pedal was in that position to give it the thinner tone. Derek stepped in and was trading off with Robert and then took his own solo and then Robert came back in a built to another peak. Gregg sang another verse and then Warren and Jay Collin's had their turn trading off. Best version of Lovelight I've heard the Brothers do.

Side note. The sound mix wasn't as good this year. At times, the band seemed turned down and I had to struggle to hear everything. Part of last night's first set was like that, however, the second set sound was much improved. Not just the volume, the overall mix and balance.

Was at Saturday's show and I thought it was absolutely unbelievable, best show I've ever seen them put on of the 2 i went to this year and the 2 I caught last year.

Heard Derek teasing In A Silent Way during Mountain Jam, got all excited... I guess that's why they call it a teast.

Incredible night of music.

Great reviews everyone. The only thing to add that has not been mentioned is that Warren announced that 4/7 was the ABB 175th Beacon Theater show. Hopefully they'll do another 175

They announced at the end of the show that in exchange for letting Bernie sit in with the Allman's that in an upcoming game, Derek will be on the mound (he's working on his slider), and Warren will be behind the plate.


Hey Alan, that's a scream! Nice to meet you the other night :-)
