Excellent! Making the world over one album at a time...

Impressive.


I wonder if it's any good.

Unfortunately top 20 in today's market isn't what it used to be. The last two weeks have been the lowest selling weeks on record as the record industry continues to collapse.

Most certainly is true my friend, the searchable charts you are looking at will not be posted until tonight or tomorrow.


Heartfixer57 - 1/21/2009 at 06:12 PM

The album is an artistic masterpiece right up there with Derek And The Domino's Layla and Abbey Road.

Just got my copy last weekend and, while like Hugh I don't put it on the same level as Layla/Abbey Road - both of those LONG time faves, I do put this high on my personal list of music I enjoy. Each time I listen to it I hear something new that moves me.

Wanted to add - this is remarkable and wonderful praise coming from a talent such as yourself, Tinsley! Hope it gets back to Derek because I'm sure he'd be doubly honored!

Never doubted it for a second! Big congrats to Derek and gang for a fantastic masterpiece of work!


johnj - 1/21/2009 at 06:44 PM

the way c.d. sales go, next week it might not be in the top 100

well then im glad im wrong

and Track 8 Down Don't Bother Me, that might be my favorite, all that guitar work before mike starts singing is so melodic and beautiful

can't stop playing this album


sixty8 - 1/21/2009 at 06:57 PM

Not surprised. Just a great album!!!


Tarzan - 1/21/2009 at 11:34 PM

great stuff
for the dtb fans this probably our american beauty or working mans dead


Krishna - 1/21/2009 at 11:38 PM

Completely fell in love with this album ever since it arrived last week!! (Bravo, dTb)

Makes me look forward to catching Derek & the guys on 2/12 in Cincinnati even more than before!


langman - 1/21/2009 at 11:45 PM

it is a terrific album........he delivers again and again.

has some strong front porch type music feel to it.......at least in my ear > no big fusion nor rock 'n roll..........DTB versatility down home make 'ya ache blues.

at this point I think I like Songlines better > if I were asked?


alloak41 - 1/22/2009 at 12:29 AM

He absolutely deserves all the success that comes his way in life.


JimSheridan - 1/22/2009 at 01:16 AM

I ask out of curiosity, not to start some competitive thang, but how high have the last few ABB efforts charted? Gov't Mule?


Angelemerald - 1/22/2009 at 01:26 AM

That's really great for the band.

High and Mighty charted at 62 the first week.

But you know, that doesn't matter to the Gov't Mule fan cause we're this rabid group of passionate fans around the country (and beyond) who love everything that Warren has to offer. We love the new guy too.

I still have to get the new DTB cd. I've heard good things about it. I did love Susan's recent cd and have given it a spin a few times.


tbomike - 1/22/2009 at 01:32 AM

Hittin The Note's peak position I think was 37, but in 2003 that would have represented considerably higher actually number of units. Deja Voodoo was #86 and High and Mighty was #62 and I think High and Mighty first week was around 15,000-16.000, so less than Already Free which I think is as noted earlier in the thread around 18,000.


Angelemerald - 1/22/2009 at 01:38 AM

No you didn't mention the number sold in the first post. You did mention 23,000 for the Motown cd.


tbomike - 1/22/2009 at 01:50 AM

Yup, I didn't mention the number, but heartfixer did in his post about it being number 1 on the blues chart.
