I just got this now because of you, and it's amazing! Thanks.


^^I just went to grab that show and it is now gone with the wind :(

:shock:

The NOLA Jazz Festival Show, April 26, 2003 is indisputably the greatest live concert ever by any band of musicians within this (or any other) galaxy according to the Intergalactic Council On Musical Awesomeness. As for 2003 taking a long time to get on its feet, Freddy Koella had been in the band one week at that point. As the writer of II Peter says, one day in the presence of the Almighty is like a thousand years... so, yeah... I guess from that perspective it took a long time.

But there was never a struggle with Freddy in the band... they kicked tail, song after song, night after night.

The February shows on the other hand? The story's never been told but there is a story there and it probably isn't a pretty one.

great--give it listen!--I do think that when really listening, it will reward. Sometime in the early years of the NET--or maybe in the fall of 1987?--Bob started paying more attention to how a concert was put together--how the songs complimented each other...and they work so well together here. One Too Many Mornings sums it all up perfectly. And the pitch-perfect harmonica at the end of the show puts the button on the whole concert.

All the Spring shows from 99 in southern Europe come to mind. I've also been a fan of that Atlanta Feb 9, 2002...the one where you can't even hear the audience.

I don't like live concerts where you can't hear the audience, it takes away the atmosphere.

I'd pretty much align with Roving Gambler's and El_Joe's overviews. I do think that there is something good to be found any year (though I am not too familiar with post 2005 shows). In 1995 and 1999-2000 I can randomly listen to any show and it sounds great to me. My favorite show is probably Berkeley, May 26, 1995--just think it's beautiful.


It is. It's one of the very best ever. I love it.

Try Jillian's Parking Lot - Louisville, KY April 30, 2003


Hot stuff!!


I guess Roving & Delvis like it too...

2003 doesn't sound that long ago, but I guess it's been a dozen years...whoa.

I attended this Jillian's Show but don't recall it standing out so much.
I never bothered with the recording, because of that...I think.
Maybe the surrounding shows were more impressive?

Perhaps a rare case of the recording being better than the live show?
I probably wasn't too drunk, because I remember bitching about the beer.
Eventually, I must search this Boot out.
