Yup, me too.

Too many releases a year? Negative.

I wasn't agreeing with that part. I wouldn't mind at all if they were releasing way more.

I know. I was just reacting to the original post in question. Bands like this that are known for their live show can never really have too many releases imo.

Definitely. Especially considering that there are still a few glaring holes in their catalog of released live shows.

same, show looks great, I just don't have any desire to purchase an 09 show

But the 10/14/94 show looks awesome, I've never listened to it, that one I will be buying

Yes, I think there is something that is lost when you release 5 or more shows a year.

When they would release live albums every other year (granted that is to few IMO) or once a year, there was a certain excitement for the release date. Now you are guaranteed 3 to 4 shows from Live Trax and 3 to 4 from DMBLive and quite frankly I think its flooding the Live DMB market.

I honestly think 2 live releases a year is optimal. Once a half.

There is always excitement, discussion, anticipation with every one of these announcements.

I don't know what is being lost.

I would say the only thing being lost is the total immersion in a release. When you get a bunch of them it is easier to constantly be moving on to the next/new one. Unlike a show like red rocks, or luther, when they were all there was, you listened to them to death. You knew every single nuance. That, for me, isn't really the case anymore. That said, I agree with you. Too much is never enough. There is enough slop in the history now that for the stuff we want we better hope they are releasing more shows than not. however, even a show like the Muse which I will argue is probably a top two release ever I do not have the familiarity with because there is just so much stuff to keep up with.

I find that I can still be as immersed because it isn't often that all the releases in a given year are something I am interested in. I like that if a show like this that doesn't particularly do it for me, I don't have to wait 6 months to a year to get something I may really enjoy. Even if consecutive releases were shows I was crazy about, there is still several months between to give 2-2 1/2 hours of music a number of listens.

Yeah people were raving about this show at the time and it's hard to argue with that setlist. If you like 3.0 you should probably get this.

The only exception is people like Josh. and I who were at SPAC N2 a week earlier. Given the choice between listening to that AUD or listening to this release I would always choose SPAC N2 because that was a special night for me. This may be the better show but I just don't have any interest in it because of that.

Totally not a bad release though.

I do miss the times where just by the mix I could tell you what cd it was. Going to Walmart or FYE and picking up the latest live cd was always fun.

Now, most of these releases have sadly become one and done. I still have my favorites such as 9.8.02 and LiC.

Not upset they release so many at all, it just seems they aren't as special anymore.

Muse, Lupos, and Deer Creek...3 of the last 5 that are definitely not one and dones for me (and some tracks from 31).

I feel like all that is lost is more about feelings of nostaligia in a lot of ways...and that isn't a criticism.

Yep.....those were the days. I went to Walmart at 6 am for Some Devil and had a worker open the new releases boxes for me because they weren't out on the racks yet.

On a somewhat related note.....I showed my 5 year old a picture of a cassette tape last night and asked him what it was. His answer: an oven.

Before I quit the band in '06, the last live album I had bought was the '05 Red Rocks comp. Since I came back last summer I've bought 42 of the releases that were released in the meantime. I've listened to all of them at least twice, many of them much more than that.

Yeah I mean if you're still getting all of these I think you're doing it wrong. The releases are diverse so there's something for everyone. Just get the ones that are for you and enjoy them.

For me? The acoustic DMB Live, Deer Creek, and Muse releases are the most recent ones that I could go back to again and again, everything else I don't need to bother with. This new DMB Live from Fall '94 might join that list too, we'll see.
