Topping this for everyone listening to shows these days. Don't feel the pressure of the long review, just to remind everyone the required minimum:

1.) rating out of 5 stars at 1/4 star intervals
2.) Live Trax desire

All Along the Watchtower

Solid show, unspectacular.

Good Two Step opener with great improv in the outro and in the outro. Don't Drink is still bouncy. Stefan has an effect on that I think is best left in 1998. Classic 4 song early Summer run with Graves, Satellite, Stay and Jimi. Nothing stood out too much on it.

Great midset run. The Rapunzel is fantastic. Dave hits all the notes and Carter drives it. I love Summer 98 Say Goodbyes, and Last Stop despite Boyd going all Boyd in the end, they started to figure the outro jam out.

Honestly the rest of set is a bit run of the mill. Always a bit surprised when Pay For What You Get starts, and Stefan's solo for Watchtower was great.

Tape was pretty good. Didn't even need a period for the ears to adjust to it.

Rating: ***
Live Trax desire: Eh. There are so many great shows from this tour, I feel like this is a super middle-of-the-road pick. I'd take it.

Roi plays something at the beginning of that 8/8/98 Say Goodbye for the first 20 seconds that sounds so familiar but I can't put my finger on what it could be. Two Step and Say Bye are my two favorites from that show. And PFWYG E1 is simply perfect setlist writing.

First, it's a really good tape. The crowd is what it always is at these, but it's pretty balanced with the music. I listened at a reasonable volume and never had to turn the volume down. I listen to 1.30.97 a bit, the LT, and the late tour shows a lot, but never hit the other shows from the tour. They all feel like good listens, but I don't really know if there's anything that stands so much from a show like this. Just a really good couple hours of listening.

You guys are so good at the song by song breakdown, but here are some notes I jotted down while listening. First time Cryptorchid was played (only 5 times total), which was always only the back half of a short song. Led to discussion of whether we should list it as "partial" on the almanac.

Excellent version of Captain. During Dave's intro to Jimi that became Angel, he has a few lyrics which I'm sure he's done before but I don't remember that goes right into the Jimi riff, pretty cool. Another thing probably done a lot that we don't have listed was Tim overlaying a few bars of Mars, Bringer of War into Stream. Droning intro to Christmas Song closer was pretty cool. Warehouse was a solid one-song encore, but it wasn't fair having just listened to 1.30.97's Warehouse.

Show Rating: ****
Live Trax desire: Won't ever say that I'd be mad at a 4-star show, but split the uprights of shows I'd want from this tour. Either super early with some jams from January, or super late with some of the best DMB-related shows ever. Seems the type of show to be happy with just having a really good AUD.

One of the OG Dave & Tim shows. We had this one before the SBDs spread, and was the best Dave & Tim audience tape until the KY shows in February 1999. As a show, it's similar to 2.2.97 that I had listened to. It didn't stand out as the classic like I thought it would. The tape mixed with availability, mixed with it being the easiest place to fine quality recordings of songs like Let You Down, Cryptorchid, Little Thing, and Is Chicago has this as more of a classic in memory than it listens. But like Scranton, it is just a great listen on a Saturday afternoon.

A much worse crowd than I remember. Dave & Tim are both clear in the recording, but individual screams are prominent in the tape, and as long as everyone is quiet, it's as good a tape as I remember it.

Songs specific to Scranton: Help Myself, Angel From Montgomery, Christmas Song
Songs specific to Blacksburg: Little Thing, Is Chicago, Minarets > Dreamed I Killed God (tease jam - had not debuted yet) > Typical Situation

Show Rating: ****

Quicker review for this one. Again really surprised by the recording, it is excellent. The crowd started really good, but gets rowdier as the show goes on. Still better than most D+T crowds. One time at the very end the crowd brickwalled on the tape.

I think it's an interesting show as it's the tour opener. Some songs are a little different, Tim's playing is different on songs like Minarets. There's nothing on here that is special and there aren't particularly interesting D+T rarities. There are two improv jams, neither are that interesting, just a couple of one-minute ditties.

Songs specific to Purdue from the other two I listened to this week: none

Show Rating: *** 1/2
Live Trax desire: Minimal. It's interesting and I'd bet not many have heard it and as always, a nice near three hours of listening, but not near the top of my list from the tour. The AUD is perfectly fine.

Pretty par for the course for a Spring 2002 show, which isn't a bad thing. Felt like YNK had a couple of flubs, but a YNK, DIDO, and Crush run can't ever be a bad thing.

Around this part of the tour, WYA was starting to have some extra juice to it. Pretty good midset OSW, then a FTT tour debut. Dave played some nice little parts in between songs before FTT on the baritone guitar. My real highlight was this late set Pig - which was quite good. Double cover encore with LBV (a nice enough Dave solo version) and then an enjoyable Watchtower (solid Fonz intro). Pretty standard fare for Spring 2002.

Show Rating: **3/4
Live Trax Desire: None. The aud was good enough for me to enjoy and the performances don't warrant the full show release treatment.

italics - exclusive to that night


A couple of smokin' shows from the week that hopefully is becoming less underrated. Tackling these together, and recapping isn't my strong point. Night 1's tape is a solid B. Might take a song or two for your ears to adjust, but it's plenty fine. Night 2 tape is much better, though it's a windy night, so there might be a little pressure, or speaker shift here and there, solid A-, one of the better tapes of the tour.

Night 1 - Some nice nuggets thrown in surrounding some of the more common songs, and the guest spots are really good. A really nice and gloomy Seek Up opens and the encore is a big highlight with 1 of only 3 Pigs on the Summer Tour as E1 (the last until its 4.4.02 return), followed by Stefan Watchtower intro that leads into a pretty long Stir It Up section with vocals and the standard Watchtower scorcher.

Show Rating: **** 1/4
Live Trax Desire: give me a bonus disc of Seek Up, #41, Graves, The Stone, and the encore.

Night 2 - Jeez. This is an all-time great DMB show. Every song from the opening Two Step through Ants encore is played at the next level. Every one. Rapunzel, Satellite, Drive, Say Bye, name it. Bill Summers is great guesting on half of the set. Just when you hit that point in the show where they usually start to "get their shit in" before encore, they hit you with Say Bye and Last Stop. Watchtower repeat as a closer is totally fine. Direct intro and Dave is the highlight peaking the show perfectly with his "wind begins to HOWL!" It even feels like the right way to finish the stand is just a banger Ants single song encore.

Show Rating: *****
Live Trax Desire: straight fire

First off, the source is mk4. I don't remember actually having a decent sounding version of this. I was downloading it to sort of fill the catalog and listened to a sample. It's a really solid source for Summer '98. The bass is really high, but easily adjusted in EQ. A couple of soft muffled spots maybe 5 or 10 seconds long.

Nothing here is below average. There's a lot about Summer '98 that was the same, and a lot of it is here, too. The guest spots help in some spots. I didn't notice Bill Summers on Rapunzel, but I he's listed as being on it and I was more waiting for the standard lyric flub, which almost never happened. His best stuff is on Say Goodbye ([Only registered users can see links.] ) which was establishing itself as a concert show piece for the next 12 months. The duet is fairly cool and Roi was top notch in the intro all year. In other spots he was just jamming in the background including some wacky percussion roll during the first dead stop in The Last Stop. He sounded like he knew Drive In Drive Out at least. Bennie Maupin had a few nice solos in Crush and Jimi. Herbie plays on a few songs, Warehouse was awesome ([Only registered users can see links.] ). After three straight shows, they don't play #41 in this stretch. Interesting that there was no Heartbeat intro and no Stefan solo before Watchtower.

Official Release Desire: I do think one of these shows from this run should come out. But I think that it would probably be better to take Atlanta or Charlotte first. Still, if they did it, I'd be happy. It's a unique handful of shows. All in all this was fairly good listen. *** 1/2

Bonus Track - #41 (1998-08-22) ([Only registered users can see links.] )
I must have been in a terrible mood this day.
