What if it's a weak tour? A top 10 show from Fall '98 is going to kick the shit out of even the best show from '01 or '05.

the jimi thing was awesome too... only thing that sucked about this show was the one song encore. that was hard to take but if you are getting one song you can't go wrong with Ants...

I guess whether or not this would make the list just depends on your definition of "must-have".

i'd agree with that. a lot of unique moments in this show that make it stand out. i just wouldn't call it a must-have.

It wasn't a one song encore. It was two songs, yes Prelude to Grace is short, but it's also extremely rare.

I wasn't there though, so...

I guess you can call that 2 songs. They definitely had to cut something because of the strict curfew there. I don't think prelude was on the setlist.

I have to admit bias to 7/10/04 because I was there and it really seemed like a special night. Great vibe, great set, perfect renditions of the new songs, improvisation, etc..

That was a great Jimi Thing. The scat was fantastic.

It is an under the radar 04 show that while might not be a must have is definitely a should listen. I hope it pops up on DMBLive or even gets a LiveTrax release. (hopefully as part of a ridiculous Hershey box set that needs to happen)

True. But no matter how poor a tour is as a whole, there is always a gem or two in the bunch.

Never said it was. Just making a general point.

Amazing how they can pull that kind of show out of nowhere during a bad tour.

Anyway, would anyone mind hopping on to help seed 7-25-01 on DT? Lost mine when my external bit the bullet.

Ants w/ that prelude intro is definitely better than Everyday and Ants. At the time I was shocked by the one song encore. I do like Everyday in the right spot though. This would not have been one of those times.

Here's mine for D&T, D&F, and DM solo

D&T (I just did it by tour. A few might not be must haves)

4.22.93
1.29.94 (I never hear it talked about much, so it might just be me)
2.6.96 (Defantly not the best from the tour, but so many better shows lack decent sources)
2.19.96
2.21.97 (One of the few times I'll declare my opinion as fact: there is not a single other D&T show that should be released before this.)
3.13.99 (Runner-up: 3.6.99/3.7.99/3.14.99.)**
3.28.03 or 3.29.03
'07 Europe- I honestly can't choose. So many shows are missing tapes, and finding the tapes that do exist isn't exactly easy. Due to the heavy Some Devil play, I think '07 should be on the must-have show list. Radio City for now?

** I find it VERY hard to select a show from the beginning of the '99 tour. Most shows from Jan-Feb contain must-have performances, but lacks a single show that highlights most of them like 3.13 does. Ex: Rapunzel, Stay in standard time, The Temple--> Wyona, Little Thing, Deed is Done, Captain, etc. Most of what I mentioned lacks a quality source, but they make the '99 tour so interesting that they are must haves.

D&F
12.17.03 or 12.20.03

DM Solo
9.11.92
9.10.99 (I don't care if it's one song, The Stone from the Charlie Ross show is must-have!)
10.24.02

I am in the minority, but I like this one better than the Birchmere show (2.21.94)

UMass show was phenomenal. At least as good as Radio City.

Alright.

9/1/91 (Originally circulated as 5/11/91)
Quote:
No one knows the actual date of this show, and really almost all of the circulated '91 performances are guesses as to the actual date, but one thing is certain, this show has all the makings of a young, immature, yet hungry band. Dave's voice was still young, and the performances were rough and a bit hollow, but the drive was there. Roi's solo to close out the last song (Typical) is proof enough of the desire and push they had to allow the music to dictate where the energy would come from. I'm fairly certain this is the only '91 performance circulated which does not include Boyd. It's just a great little set that captures everything we've read about with the humble beginnings of this band.
2/13/92 (The video)
Quote:
I remember receiving the VHS in a trade a long time ago. The thing is, along with what you've read in the books about the band's history playing these small gigs every night, and what older fans will tell you, once you see it for yourself it makes watching and listening to these older shows more of a learning experience about the history of the band and their rise throughout the VA area early on. The video of this showcases the band performing to what seemed to be an empty high school hall. After each of the first few songs Dave mentions how no one should be afraid to come up close and dance if they felt like it. Then after a few songs, the bare, open, empty floor was filled with students and fans dancing to every beat Carter was laying down, every lyric Dave was singing and every solo Boyd and Roi would take. It was a clear window to how things went down for the band back then.
4/5/92 (video and audio)
Quote:
One thing I love about listening to various performances of certain songs is the growth, change, and evolution they go through until the transformation of the tune years later leads to thunderous performances in Arenas and Amphitheaters. The first known live performance of Two Step is something to always be remembered. It was instantly hailed as a fan favorite right from the get-go, and here during the first performance the song is tossed out in the opening slot as a test performance. Almost a soundcheck performance, if you will. Well, we all know certain moments like that during that era eventually turned into truly great songs, much like the band's live soundcheck on 12/11/93 which turned into Proudest Monkey. The video also holds something similar to the 2/13/92 video, where people were watching and listening and the more the band played the more people seemed to feed off of what was happening on stage. It seemed like a common occurrence no matter where the band played, in C'ville, Richmond, or other areas of VA.
9/11/92 (Dave solo)
Quote:
For so many, the DKE solo performance here didn't amount to some amazing show or lead to best performances of certain tunes, rather it showcased the core of a lot of the songs that had been growing each and every night on stage for over a year at that point. Dave's banter here would also blossom in these type of settings to what would lead to stories during D&T shows and of course ultimately find a home 7 years later on VH1's Storytellers.
9/30/92 (full band acoustic)
Quote:
One of the handful of heavily traded/circulated shows in the mid-90's, this full band acoustic performance which featured percussionist Miguel Valdez supplied a fresh take on these performances. Nothing new was added, nothing was really stripped away, rather the inclusion of a guest for an entire show(just like night before - 9/29), showed a different view of the band's material. There was something wrong with Carter's hand so Miguel stepped in. Of course Miguel would pass away a few months later and the band would eventually dedicate #34 to Miguel in the liner notes of UTTAD, and of course now with the passing of Roi, that song holds an even higher place in the hearts of all the fans. So this show really does hold that string history.
12/31/92 (the Omni performance)
Quote:
For years a few traders had 12/31/91 on their list of shows they had, and every time the show turned out to be an early '92 show that was just mislabeled. A few older fans swore up and down DMB performed a New Years Eve gig on 12/31/91 but it's yet to be proven with any factual backing. So, with that in mind, 12/31/92 remains the first of only 5 NYE performances they've put on as a band during their 18+ years. Of course 8 months earlier, on 4/5/92, the band performed Two Step for the first time, and under a year at the end of '92 you can hear the growth and confidence that was gained on stage within this song. It doesn't rival the tight monstrous versions we see and hear today but on 12/31/92 it was indeed the best performance of the song they had done.

I'll keep going later.
