Not really, he mostly called it Dangerous Hours...rarely called it Desperate Hours, maybe only a handful of times. I think I remember him even saying "This song is called Dangerous Hours or Desperate Hours" or something like that a few times.

Still haven't listened to this one yet. Is there any crowd noise? One of the reasons I like 12/21/92 so much is that you really get that club/bar feel with the crowd.

There's a bit of crowd noise, yeah. Not as much as 12/21/92. But moments like Boyd's Last Call jam (which I can't stop listening to, love Peter on this too) bring the crowd into the mix.

There's crowd noise, but certainly more audible after the songs, so not as much as 12/21. But the overall mix and sound quality of this one is superior to 12/21 so it's really a fair exchange. The crowd goes absolutely apeshit for Boyd during the Ants jam.

The craziest part to me is how long the format of the LIOG has been kept. It's been pretty much the same since '96 and it never gets old. It's always been Boyd >Butch, or Boyd >Guest, Boyd >Tim. Strange how it just stayed that way when you think of songs like Two Step, Grace Is Gone etc. that had changes for a while and then were dropped or revised. GIG started with the Stefan Lap steel intro, they did the The Hoe Down thing that was shortlived, then the Black Water thing in it. Two Step pretty much always had the Carter solo at some point, but the tempo/agression of the song changed drastically too. LIOG has really been pretty set. Just find that interesting.
From the outakes of the Relix article:

Quote:
Lie In Our Graves: I told him how this song featured a Roi solo through '95, and then it became a Boyd solo. Yet the record has Tim. He was surprised to learn about Roi/Boyd solos. ďProbably, no one said, ĎThatís my solo.í I liked what Tim did more than that, at the time, those flicks, and maybe I didnít want a solo. I wanted a feeling of chill. I love that chord progression. I didnít feel like it needed to have someone jamming over it."

Interesting. I always go back to those 95 LIOGs and feel relaxed. Though the album cut is super chill as well.

I will always go back to Red Rocks though I absolutely love Boyd shining on the jam too. Red Rocks will always be my version of choice though.

Purchased and listened to this for the first time yesterday. Felt appropriate, given the 25th anniversary show. Liked it more than I was expecting. The hunger and drive of the band is so evident on so many recordings from the '92-95 range.

Ants was a surprise, and Two Step is a beast. I actually didn't mind Peter's levels that much, either. Also hadn't listened to any version of Spotlight in at least five years, so it was actually enjoyable to return to.

What's always so prominent about early shows is the sharp power of Carter's playing. He's become more of a lumbering, aggressive, predictable drummer in the past 5-7 years. With the early stuff there's a lot of surprise, and the way he uses the snare is so entertaining. He's nimble and burly. He's also mid-30s.

It was also great to hear so many of the guys riffing between each other and having some banter with the crowd. There was no barrier between band and fans back then. Really glad the DMB camp opted to release this.

Totally agreed about Carter but sometimes people including myself forget the dude is pushing 60. I'd say he's still pretty damn good for his age.

Yeah I'd say he's still pretty decent.

Yeah but given that logic he shouldn't be playing as loud and fast as he does.

Just getting around to this release...used to have a soft spot for those early 91/92 shows. Great release, glad to hear the band playing with this much fire.

Listened to this one again. Great representation of this time period. This has a lot of good stuff, with the Two Step and the improvs after Ants being the pinnacle. For the people who bag on PG-era DMB this should be required listening before they write it off entirely.

Cranking up some old school DMB today. This is such a fun show. My faves: BOWA, the Boyd Jam, Spotlight (I've always loved this song) & Two Step. With so many years of music and only 3-4 releases a year, I feel like we need an old-school Live Trax series and a newer one. 1991-2004 (classic dmb) / 2005-current (iffy dmb).

This show and 12/21/92 might be in my top 20 releases from the band to be honest. These shows are killer from start to finish. You can hear that something "special" they had and why they got so big so quick.
