So amazing. That 6/7/08 one is incredible.

It often gets overlooked because of how great 6.21, but Bartender, Two Step and Crush from 6.20 are some of the best versions ive ever heard.

okay it's short a day, but you should revisit two step from 5/31/08.

it's the second show of the tour / with tim, the opening song of the night, and i absolutely love tim's solo. it's almost as if he's saying "i'm here now bitches, and this is what i'm gonna do to this place" with it's relentlessness.

I adore this version. I love how (unlike most versions), the song doesn't slow down or lose any momentum throughout or after the whole jam section. Also, the horn lines that end Tim's solo, and Carter's drumming... all amazing.

Yep!

And (it's been a while) no improv intro at the beginning by Dave right? Just letting the music do its thing.

I was at both and the fact is that they are a lot closer than they get credit for. The best two shows of the month IMO.

Mansfield 1: Excellent Proudest and Crush, Bitch, The "Green Acres" Cornbread, killer Rapunzel > Ants to close the main set
Mansfield 2: A legitimate best-ever contender Loving Wings (busted out of nowhere no less), and a main set that ends with Seek Up/Two Step.
yeah that was such a great run of shows.. some of their best ever arguably

2007 was the most uninspired and lifeless dmb shows I've ever seen, such an amazing turnaround with June of 2008. Such great shows both pre and post Leroi too.

One of the best months in the band's history. A great time to be a fan.

Had no idea this was happening. I was on a 4 year hiatus from the band that ended in December of 2008. Wish I had caught some of June 2008 live.

Agree 100%!
Hershey 6/27/08 is the same way and ends w the horns as well.
Camden 6/4 is another upbeat jam version as well but doesn't have the horn lines.

Wish Carter kept going with that upbeat drumming for Tim's solo as I prefer that much more to when he slows it down so much.

I also love the instrumental intro, it's perfect. Tim and Carter go nuts for about 2 mins and they keep it short and sweet.

You Might Die Trying from the Busch Stadium show (LT13) is absolutely killer. Both Roi and Tim shred their solos. Shit, even Rashawn's little solo is tasty.

Yeah a couple of shows into the tour and they had already perfected it. I still think that's probably the best version of that song.

That show was fun

Went the night before in Chicago when Bela came out. Show was so good we hopped in the car and drove to STL for the next night. Good times
