August 7, 2003 - The Gorge Amphitheatre - George, Washington

While a touch short of an absolutely special show, this show is everything that was right about 2003. It lacks Boyd's awfulness, the setlist features many of the solid returns like a truly majestic and hypnotic Dreaming Tree, Spoon and Minarets; along with the SMTS » Rapunzel. #41 has no Everyday outro, and the segue into Everyday was a nice touch. The Minarets is worth a 3/4 * in itself. I honestly believe it's one of the top 5 non-guest infused performances of the past 10 years with Bartender from Boston 02 and Seek Up from SPAC 01. It is a special performance with an incredible build. Dave and Carter crescendo in sync like they'd played the song every night for the last 6 years. **** 1/2

review: Let's see how far I can get through the 1999 Summer Tour before I get so sick of Lie In Our Graves and Jimi Thing that I can't take it anymore. This show is uninspired. The setlist is solid. Putting things in perspective, What Would You Say was a good tour opener. Maceo Parker guested on a few versions at the end of 1998, but before that, it hadn't been in the rotation since 1996. Dave loses lyrics in Rhyme & Reason leading to some interesting improv, but the same can't be said for Two Step or Rapunzel. Normal strong Roi songs like Lover Lay Down & Heartbeat are really flat. Warehouse and Typical are average versions (still pretty good), the encore reads better than it played. The highlight of the show for me was So Much To Say ([Only registered users can see links.] ). It's not a favorite of mine, it just kind of exists to me. But this version is clearly better than most. This show also suffers from what's going to become a theme of this tour, 2 - 3 minutes of crowd noise between songs. Thank God Dave no longer tunes on stage. "twang twang twang twang twang" * 3/4

source: AT853 - a little distant, but no problems

DMBlive desire: little to none.

Listened through WAYG and some girl shouts, "Yeah Butch!" after the song is over. I bet he was banging her.

Ladies and gentlemen, Keen Eddie has discovered why Butch left the band. He got busted banging some girl he met at the Gorge.

He got tired of being mixed up with Butch Taylor the porn star, so he decided to merge both professions into one.

setlist:
Spoiler:
The Last Stop
Lie In Our Graves
Stay (Wasting Time)

Pig

Satellite
Jimi Thing

Too Much
The Stone
Dave solo improv riff

Don't Drink the Water » improv riff

The Long Black Veil
What Would You Say

bold - tour debut
italics - song debut


review: A much better effort than night one, everyone feels more comfortable, but Dave's voice is already starting to go and good lord Boyd is really, really bad. 2003 bad. The first 8 minutes of The Last Stop are great, but if you told me Boyd was playing a different song during the outro, I would believe you. Pig is great until the end and The Stone is a nightmare even with Roi throwing in a clip of Can't Help Falling In Love. Yet somehow, he's really good on Lie In Our Graves. This is actually a really good version of it. Other pluses, Two Step was really good. This was right after Two Step got the expansion in the Fall 1998 Tour, and Dave starting a taking a solo, usually pretty basic, but always tasty, this one is no exception and is the highlight of the show ([Only registered users can see links.] ). There's an interesting bit before DDTW as Dave plays around with a riff for about a minute. It was something in his head as it has a section change, then he goes back into it as Don't Drink fades. This was the first full band version of The Long Black Veil, more country than the rest and he hasn't fully gotten the range down yet. He switches back and forth between octaves. No jam at all, just a nice version after a bit of vocal uncomfortability ([Only registered users can see links.] ). I absolutely hate What Would You Say to end a set or a show. Better than night 1, a flash of brilliance, but still just average at best **.

source: sr77 - very good

DMBlive desire: little to none. Recording is good, I'd rather not hear Boyd more clearly than I already can.

4 1/2* There are a few "meh" moments in the first half, but nothing bad. Spoon through to the end of the show kills though. It helps that I'm a fan of Help Myself and the SMTS Rapunzel combo. And hot damn, that Minarets

Can't say I've listened to many shows from the first leg of '03, but this is one of the only ones that actually lives up to the setlist you see on paper.

It's great to have heard a version so many times and know it so well that you can picture them on stage performing it, then you get to see it. I'm not a video collector or watcher at all, really. I had never seen this nor did I know it was out there. Thanks.

Good representative of the early '06 tour IMO, completely with some really cool things they were doing that year and some pretty rough things as well.

The good:

-- one of the stronger shows from Dave, vocally, in the tour
-- WH with the Louie Louie interpolation was a blast
-- Boyd's solos in Nancies and Billies were on point
-- Carter's intro to Say Goodbye was, as always, excellent
-- anytime Raven, Typical Situation and JTR show up in the same set and are even played decently is a treat

The meh:

-- the 'Roi/Rashawn jam on Crush was a bit marred by Rashawn being flat at first and trying too hard for a climax at the end (typical of '06)
-- the flute is definitely missing from the Say Goodbye intro and the pennywhistle missing from JTR was unfortunate (one of my favorite touches of '06 shows)
-- OSW was pretty flat and WWYS started this way until 'Roi salvaged a good climax to the jam
-- slow! I had forgotten how slow a lot of these shows were at times and it's particularly noticeable on Raven and WWYS here

The ugly:

-- Smooth Rider and Can't Stop, may you never cunt up a set again

I'll give it *** 1/2. Would I want it as a release? Not really. Would I have left the show satisfied? Yup. Is it worth listening to? If you like what they were doing in '06, then certainly. If it's a year that you just don't care for, then you'd probably want to pass on this as well.

I'd like one of the '06 JTRs with the pennywhistle to show up on a bonus disc someday.

The run from Raven to JTR on 6.28.06 is probaly one of the greatest things I've seen the band do in 35 shows. I'll never forget it.

a great sounding soundboard that is often overlooked with a killer "watchtower" with leroi going off. the "recently" is also really good with dave fading the show out and thanking the (probably small) crowd. winter '95 is really a great tour with some outstanding recordings and this is definitely a keeper!

Classic '96 show and one of the better sounding AUD's from that year. Very little time between songs, excellent song flow, Happy B-Day jam to LeRoi, dream setlist for that era, stellar sounding Angel from Montgomery in the encore. Definately Live Trax worthy. Along with 11/9 and 12/31, this is a must have from 96.

bold - tour debut


review: George Washington - first U.S. President, Roald Amundsen - first to the South Pole, Anthony Munoz - first true Bengal inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, me - first person to ever listen to this show from house music to house music. There's not a lot to say. The recording is ok at best. It's very hot, not the easiest to listen to. Dave's voice is trashed making songs like Pay For What You Get ([Only registered users can see links.] ), Crash Into Me and So Much To Say rough. It is actually this stretch of shows that starts the consistent screaming instead of the falsetto on songs like Don't Drink the Water and Crash (though not this shows), though he does do the "take these chanCESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!" in Ants that has become a staple. Boyd is better than West Palm, but some rough moments, especially in Ants. The only notable thing about the show is that the Carter solo intro to Rhyme and Reason makes its first appearance since early 1994. The improv jam is just them joking around with a bit of a country riff for a little bit. I'm sure this show is better with a better recording, but three shows in, it's the worst show of the tour so far * 1/2.

source: csb - pretty clear, but levels run very hot leading to a fair amount of distortion

DMBlive desire: little to none. Recording is worthy of being upgraded, but the show isn't.
