Forget b-sides, unreleased, etc. JTR is my favorite DMB song.

JTR for sure. Monkey Man is up there too. Honorable mentions to SUAD and #27.

That one Beach Ball with the long jam (5.1.09? I know it was from that spring tour) is a great listen. I don't think they ever played it like that again.

Lyrics are definitely more developed than I remembered. Jack is right i was probably thinking of Raven lyrics or I just have a shitty memory of Monkey Man.

I think what i remembered was the gap after the verse/chorus beginning at 1:37 and basically going on for a minute. Its just repeating a chord progression and i thought they should have developed something there if the song were to be finished. It happens again in the song, nothing wrong with what we have but just feels a bit unfinished.

I admittedly haven't listened to dmb much in the last few years but I put on the LWS the other day on a long road trip and could barely make it through SUAD, which was weird for me since I used to swear that everything on that record was dmb at 10/10's. Years later, JTR still hits me with the same impact it did in 1999 and Monkey Man is a close second that really creates a mood and is still relevant in today's world. There are worse songs on the list (Cornbread...) but Sweet Up and Down sounds like DMB parody and Joy Ride sounds like someone told Dave Matthews to write a song Dave Matthews would write and then played SUAD for him as an example.

The LWS SUAD has always been a favorite of mine, seems to be underrated.

Live versions of it in recent years though, not so much

And I see you can buy that on iTunes now.

From that list, I'd say JTR is the best.

An unpopular opinion, and one that I've made almost verbatim several times for over a decade and a half and taken some shit for. That song is really not good. Put it on any album other than the LWS and nobody gives a shit about it.

The way some people feel about Sweet Up and Down is how I feel about Get in Line. It's clunky and doesn't really go anywhere.

I'm In a mega minority here but I kind of agree with you. I do think the LWS sessions are severely overrated. The album is full of some of the best DMB songs no doubt, but the album never sounded anywhere near finished or complete. I'm one of the few around here that think Busted Stuff is a much better overall album. I'm not going to try and convince anyone either way, but that's how I feel

That's it, shut the fucking board down. Let's all just blow it up and pretend this never happened.

Could've been the bands next tripping billies but someone fucked that up royally. That shit always blew my mind. Hell even SUAD could have probably been a pretty successful single for them then.

I wasn't a fan (not until 03) of DMB when the sessions leaked. So while a lot of the more veteran savy crowd holds TLWS as top tier DMB, I also really enjoy busted stuff as an album because I didn't have to go through that whole debacle as a hardcore fan, but I understand where they are coming from. I personally enjoy both albums about the same. Couple songs on both I could do with out. I think the only thing that I really don't care for on TLWS is Raven which gets a lot of hype around here.
