Been a DH since '71, been to 92 shows + 5 JGB's and always loved Bobby's "rockin" along with Jerry's everything. There's an old expression "just another picky Dead Head" and not that that applies to me 100%, I've been slow to grasp the new stuff. Got into PL&F's 'cause of Joan Osborne's beautiful voice in Jerry's parts and JUST last week gave Ratdog a try by dl'ing the 8-19-07 Darien show. What a fool I've been! They friggin' ROCK! I've dl'ed probably 40 shows in the last week and hope to go to the Albany shows this November. Just goes to show you CAN teach an old DH new tricks!
..even a blind man knows when the sun is shinin'...you can feel it!..
Seen the 'dog here a few times ... lot's of sad and happy memories ... can't wait to see 'em again!
We loved you here, and sure do hope to see you back next year.
Anyone else at 8/18/07 Bushkill, PA concert? What was that jazzy trio/ piece with horn and drums? Fabulous! Also- Allman Bros. - that funky piece with bass & drums. I'll be looking for audios.
Looking forward to this Fall's tour!
I am looking for the acoustic Dark Star that Keller Williams and Bobby played before the show. If anyone has it please let me know.
Be aware & careful Wednesday at Allmans Ratdog
crack down on alcohol no drinking in parking lot
draconian state blue meanness in angy wave
People taken away for no ID
approached at anytime
Close the gap of the dark years in between
wish i could have met you at the bushkill show, but alas , i had no wheels. i am severely jonesing for a show. glad you had a good one
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
Getting ready to goto Darrien Lakes for Ratdog and Allmans today and got my Phil and friends tix yesterday what a weekend
Man...I gotta say, the show at the Tweeter Center in Camden NJ last night was AWESOME as hell!!!! I danced my ass off the entire time!!! When the storm started, I was hoping they'd break out with a jammin' version of "The Wheel"....but the selections played last night were right on time...Women R Smarter, Althea, China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Quinn the Eskimo, Me & My Uncle, Ripple and more.
Gratefulmom.....was Derek Trucks with the Allmans HOT or WHAT??? I was totally amazed at his skills....and the Allman's 'drums' was pretty damn hot as well. I totally NEEDED this show!!!
...and damn glad i wasn't out on the lawn during the thunderstorm!
the 'dog kicked ass, took no prisoners. i love how Kimock has slid in effortlessly, and not "replaced" Mark per se, but put his signature stamp on the groove. they're a bit edgier...
didn't keep a setlist for highlights for me were the opening seque of Women are Smarter into Good Morning Little Schoolgirl; the Come Together with Keller; the China>Rider with Derek. and "finishing" the Help/Slip by guesting w/ the Bros for Franklin's was totally hot.
and then I even got a Liz Reed. sweet.
for me, these guys are the best of what's left of the scene. I get flamed for it constantly ( IRL *and* on the Well, so really, you can save it.) but I have to say it again that imho -- while Phil has been out making Friends, Bob has put together a fucking tight, amazing band. gimme my 'dog any day.
(plotting here, at noon, how I can find somebody to drive up to the Poconos with me...)
