Job and family have made it increasingly difficult to keep up with the writing of the Beacon reviews, especially when I see 8 shows a run (and for me, that's down this year.) So invariably I fall behind, and am still catching up after the run is over. I've still got 3 or 4 to do, but I'm skipping right to this, my last show of the run, the penultimate show, Friday night, because it was my favorite, and it was one of those shows that reminds you why you keep coming. It's funny, looking at the setlist on paper, it doesn't seem so spectacular. But I assure you, being there, it was magical.

Said setlist:

Trouble No More
Midnight Rider
Who to Believe
Rockin' Horse
Statesboro Blues
Sailin' Across the Devil's Sea
Egypt
Lovelight (w/Bruce Hampton, Duane Trucks)
Leave My Blues at Home

Dreams
Come and Go Blues
Worried Down With the Blues
Anyday (w/Susan Tedeschi, vox)
In Memory of Elizabeth Reed (w?Oz Noy, guitar)

Into the Mystic

One thing that makes for a great show is the pacing-- the nights when there are no lulls, where every song seems like the only possible thing that could follow the one before. This was one of those nights.

Derek plays some nice round slide that fills my chest during "Trouble No More." A spirited "Midnight Rider," then "Who to Believe," a song I see they've played five times in the last four years. Warren plays some pristine but scalding, bent-string slide guitar lead, then Derek peels off sheets of slide like it's a long roll of golden foil. The song is surprisingly good, prompting my friend Bill to ask,"What song was that?"

Oteil lays down some bottom, with a "Memphis Soul Stew" kind of vibe; drums enter, then the rest of the band, and Warren throws the lever to slam into "Rocking Horse." The Warren solo section after the vocals is cooler, more exploratory than usual; then the segue to what I think of as "Derek's Tune," the major key departure into which his solo section has evolved. Derek's gentle licks peek out from behind the clouds, then Oteil gallops in, and Derek hops on that pony and rides. Derek and Warren are drawn together on stage by some unseen musical magnetism until they become a beast with four hands and a single mind, Warren hitting the three chords that define this little tune of Derek's, while Derek layers on some frenetic slide that evokes "Oh, the water" in "And It Stoned Me"... back into the verse... then they stretch out the close, wringing every ounce of agony out, like an elbow in your spine during a great massage...

Gregg counts in a jaunty "Statesboro." Then "Sailin' Across the Devil's Sea" features a powerful skronky drive to the close, guitars, forceful drumming. Next up it's time for the First Set Instrumental, which tonight is "Egypt." Marc Quinones is at the center of the music, Derek plays some slide, then some exposition that fills the house, then he's wailing over the top until Warren brings the band back down and back to the dark dessert vibe that heralds the piece's closing section.

Colonel Bruce Hampton joins the band on vocals, while Derek's brother Duane joins on Uncle Butch's kit for "Lovelight." I've seen them play this a number of times with sit-ins, and it is absolutely never a mistake. Oteil scoops out some soulful bottom. The Colonel sings the first verse, Gregg the second. Warren gives up some of that Stax-Volt chording to propel the song while Oteil does, and I'm not speaking metaphorically, a Snoopy happy dance. Then Oteil plays the dance, Derek plays slide over the top, lets it shine, Duane Trucks steps out on drums briefly, then it all spills over to the Colonel's back-end vocals.

They could easily have ended here, but instead there's the knockout punch of "Leave My Blues at Home." Warren and Derek unleash intertwined crimson ribbons of fire that wrap round the rafters, before flipping seamlessly into the s
