For archives, I would be happy to see them do what the Stones seem to be doing: setting up a downloadable archive series. I prefer hard copies and liner notes, but I am a dinosaur.

I would love to see the ABB write and offer new music, no matter how they do it. Instant lives, downloads, whatever. I think it would be a great and powerful statement to do it as an album because I feel that albums ARE statements, milestone documents that show where a band is at, something with the sprawl and scope that singles lack. However, as noted, I live in the past.

I am just thrilled to see they are re-releasing SOMETHING and releasing ANYTHING on video from 2009. To me, this shows forward movement and for that I am grateful. Bring it on! I may even buy some of the releases I already have just to show demand ....

I hope the second night with Clapton from 2009 makes it's way to DVD. And I would certainly think there would be a huge market for that, just having Eric's name on it. So why not capitalize on it? That's not the only reason to issue it; it also happens to be a tremendous show! The band was on FIRE and did a long set before Eric even walked onstage.

Count me in for a second night Clapton DVD too!

I was only there for the 1st EC night back in 2009. I will say that the electricity in the air the first night was like few concerts I've ever been to...it was believed he was there, but nothing was 100% guaranteed he was playing or for how long. The ABB played lights out even before Eric hit the stage (first set Whipping Post closer!). Why Does Love Have to Be So Sad from that night was as blissful of music as I've ever seen live. I just soaked it all in. One of those nights would seem to be the easiest special guest night to release because it was so few guests (Eric, Susan).

ABB don't need Warren to come up with 10-12 amazing songs for a new album. Here's my thoughts and I'm admitted optimist:

Between new ideas/themes the band has already presented on stage (completely new sections of No One To Run With & Rockin Horse could be great songs!), a cover or two (Who's Been Talking), an instrumental already written (Bag End for me), a few Gregg/Warren/Derek new collaborations (Derek has become a good co-writer in recent years), and some help from close friends (you know that Mike Mattison, Jack Pearson, Kofi Burbridge, Doyle Bramhall II et al would totally dig having a co-writing credit or two on an ABB album).

I'm also thinking of 2 particular Warren song from the late 90s he used to play in acoustic sets that he's never recorded that could be cool vehicles for Gregg - I'll dig out some names (I could care less how old a song idea is). Point being, Warren is surely needed for songs & ideas but not 10-12 new songs. I'm a believer there is another top notch album in these guys.

Damn. Thought the 'DVD' part was referring to the Stony Brook show as well. Buzzkill.

Didn't "JJ's Alley" turn into "One Stop Bepop"?


Two of my kids' first ABB show was in 99.

JJ's Alley & Georgia on a Fast Train were as lame as it gets.

Fortunately, the rest of the show was grate.

I don't think it is a question of whether we all would like some new material. I think we could all agree on that.

But in your response there is no clear indication of any sort of benefit for the ABB.


No disrespect but I have seen a few of your comments regarding this topic. I am curious as to your thoughts on why you think there is no benefit to the ABB. I have to assume you are thinking financial. What about just being great artists and putting out some new music?

Hittin' The Note is a great album and I love it that they play a bunch of songs from the album(damn I mean CD) live. Maydelle was a great addition earlier this year.
