It's a classic DMB song, but it's not a personal favorite of mine for some reason.

This does not become apparent until the bass comes in.

The interesting thing about this, to me, is that Dave is aware of this ambiguity and when he's playing it Dave & Tim style he changes the chords so that the verse is clearly built on a D minor chord; without the bassline, the original riff doesn't sound right to him anymore. Listen to how Seek Up on Luther College starts.


very interesting

Like many others, the Red Rocks 95 Seek Up was one of my gateway drugs to DMB. Pure magic in musical form. The amazing thing about hearing that performance and then discovering more DMB is - that particular version of Seek Up is GOOD but there are dozens more that are GREAT.

Are all absolute essential listens for any fan of the song.
Throw 7/24/96 onto that list as well. That's one of my top versions.

I agree, those were awesome. The distortion Jeff used on his intros was different and interesting. The problem with 3.0 versions is Boyd and the lack of a good, climatic outro with him and Dave's wailing. LT 36 for example is a cool version up until that point - it's got an eerie prelude and a more laid back horn intro but totally falls flat when it's Boyd's time to shine.

This is one of the best songs this band has. Its Probably the best opening song as well. Nothing like hearing those notes to start a show.

It hasn't fallen off the cliff in 3.0. While I think the intro is a bit busy these days, its still great.

I agree.

Anyone have any particular stand-out performances over the last 5 or 6 years?

These threads are a perfect way for you to bring back your “Top 10 Lists” again . How long has it been? 10-15 years?

The DDTW Seek Up segue from Riverbend in 2016 was an awesome combo. And they did it again at Deer Creek.
