I always thought the story on American Baby as a song was the whole Boyd starts plucking that riff and Batson says "THATS A SONG!" and then Dave throws 3 chords over it and they record it... as opposed to it spinning off of some other completed song. I feel like "completed songs" was basically antithetical to the Stand Up approach...

I think weíre talking complete albums here. Where he performed on the whole record. He was only on a few songs on BW no?

Is this a semantics discussion?
As far as I knew, isnít he on every song (where a sax is involved) except for Squirm?

I do not definitively know the answer to this... but my assumption was always that the only real appearance of his work was in that "grux" intro and the "#35" outro to the album... I think everything else was coffin

Yeah the vast majority is coffin.

If you want to get into it, Roi plays on Canít Stop and IOY on Come Tomorrow.

Stand Up was the last album that Roi was in the studio for and was a full time member of DMB.

BWGK = all Roi except for Squirm.

CT = all Jeff except for IOY, Can't Stop, maybe Come On Come On (don't remember, don't really like that tune.)

Roi is on Grux, Why I Am, Lithog, Seven and Time Bomb. Pretty sure he's also on #27 and Write a Song (there's a clip of him playing on a similar piece in one of the BW docs). He may be in the background of Shake Me and You & Me, but I dunno.

Can we also discuss ABI replacing arguably one of Jeff’s best solo spots in LITHOG?! That arrangement change just kills me inside.

The whole point of LITHOG is that Roi played those sax lines and DMB wrote a song over the top of it. Its a pretty damn good one too.

I dont truly mind it its a fresh spin on the song that probably got a bit stale by the end anyways. That is probably what led to them dropping it from 2012ish - 2018. Im glad they changed SOMETHING up. This is what we are asking them to do in so many other instances. If something like this happened to Grey Street this board would be dancing in the streets.

(if you were to argue that them dropping LITHOG because it was a lot of work to play then i wont disagree, but its probably what happened)

EDIT: Lastly agreed ABI sucks on its own. I have no idea why dave was blowing his voice out in 07 for this song. What Gweeps mentioned is interesting, id never heard that before. I dont fully understand it because he never makes his point but maybe that is the point?

As far as I know, this was just speculation based on an article someone on Ants found that had some woman saying that she had said something "a hundred times, a thousand times." I've always assumed this was just a coincidence.

right?

Here's the article: [Only registered users can see links.]

Relevant excerpt (for context, it's talking about people looting Saddam Hussein's palaces after he was overthrown):
Quote:
A woman who said she was a pharmacist paused for a moment outside the Sajida Palace, named for Mr. Hussein's wife, with her husband, an orthopedic surgeon, and their two daughters. ''I feel no shame,'' she said, gesturing to a few bags filled with tokens from the palace. ''We paid for these things a hundred times over.'' She paused. ''Not a hundred times,'' she said. ''A thousand times.''
Reading it again, I'm even more convinced of the coincidence than I was before.

If she is indeed the reason behind ABI, she should be publicly shamed sometime in the near future.

Speaking of LITHOG, I just watched LITHOG from the warmup series. It was a 2015 performance, and everything is really good, but they decided to put the lovely ladies on the song. I mean why DMB?

Why bring them back in the first place after 13 years without an appearance?
