I was wondering if anyone could recommend any Instant Lives that are especially good. The only two that I currently have are the Charlotte '05 and Jazz Fest '07, both of which are very good and have great setlists. I'm looking to get a few more, but I was wondering if anyone has any favorites, both in terms of great performances and/or unique and interesting setlists. And if there is already somewhere on this site to share reviews of Instant Lives, please point me in the right direction.

8-12-07 is a great one with rarely played "44 Blues" "Manic Depression" "No One Left To Run With" "The Sky Is Crying" "End Of The Line" "High Cost Of Low Living", and it's a great performance to boot!

Wow. I just looked at the setlist for that show and it does look pretty good. I personally think that "No One to Run With" should get a little more play, and I've been waiting to hear their cover of "Manic Depression" for awhile. Thanks for the recommendation.

Fox Box Fox Box Fox Box. Still the best IL I've gotten to date. Spans nearly everything, and Derek on 44 Blues from that will leave you absolutely exhausted - most underrated tune the Brothers do these days.

The Raleigh show from 2003 is a fantastic one that still stands out, Branford Marsalis, Susan Tedeschi and Karl Denson all guest.

Tweeter Center from 05 is a solid show, too. Chuck Leavell shows up on a few tunes.

I just picked up the Milwaukee 8/26/07 show which has a nice setlist - The Weight, Mt Jam, Highway 61 Revisited (which has an opening lick suspiciously similar to Good Clean Fun - anyone else notice this?), extended No One to Run With, Smokestack Lightning. The only problem with it is the track stop for "Southbound" and "Leave My Blues at Home" are off queue, they start 4 or 5 seconds into the song. Not a big deal if you're listening to the album straight through, but if you're throwing on an mp3 player shuffle is kind of sucks - I'm surprised they didn't fix this for the repressed discs.

9-25-04 Fox Theatre or the Fox Box Set, but from me the 9-25-04 show is the best and you have the one of two times you have gregg singing "blue sky"
Aug. 7 & 8 2007 Boston Show, Anday & Lost Lover Blues (Aug. 7), dazed and confused (Aug. 8)
9-8-07 Altanta show, a killer Black Hearted Woman to the best ever version on the 2007 tour.

I was definitely thinking about picking up the Saturday show from the Fox because that was the only one of the Fox shows I was able to attend, and I definitely remember the Blue Sky being nasty. I would like to order all of the Fox shows, but that's a little too much for me to buy at one time.

On a side note, does anyone have any thoughts on the Stonybrook archive CD? I've been looking at picking that up for some time now, especially for the Duane-era Blue Sky.

I really appreciate the input. Keep the recommendations coming.

The Stonybrook show is worth it for the extended trippy Dreams, a great Liz Reed and fantastic Blue Sky (especially if you dug the Fox version - I don't work for HTN but I'm telling you to buy the Fox Box! I think the 9/24 and 9/26 shows are better than the 9/25 show, but they're all still completely off the charts). Just to warn you, though, the audio on the first few tracks of the first Stonybrook disc are pretty much unlistenable. The mix gets corrected a few songs in, and once it does, it's one of the best Archive releases out there - definitely the best Archive release with Duane on it.

a little further back, let me recommend Charlotte '04 - a powerful, tight, aggressive greatest hits kind of set that erased Skynyrd from the collective consciousness of the crowd in the first 5 minutes, and just kept getting better. it was like the best of one of the previous week's Fox shows, edited. (LOVE that Fox Box!) the IMOER has a drum break that's maybe 3 minutes. talk about supertight!

also, from '04, any show between 8-21 & 8-28. i have maybe 4 from that little stretch, they were just bursting with energy and creativity. i can't pick one - they're all on my IPod.

anyway, thanks for the suggestions. i need to buy some more IL's when our lives get back to normal.

I was at the 8-26-07 Milwaukee show and I too would recommend that one.

I would love to hear those Atlanta Fox shows as well. I might have to pull the tripper on that Fox Box.......

For something a little different, try:

July 23, 2005 Philadelphia

Warren didn't make the show.
Was all Derek on guitar.

Much like Ron recommended that stretch of shows from August '04, I would confidently recommend any of the shows from the ABB/Ratdog tour last year, 8/15--8/22.

I was fortunate to catch most of that run in person, and I think it's possibly the best week the band has had in years. The Fox Box maintains a high level for 3 shows, but in my opinion they hit a similar level for 6 shows on this run. I think 8/15 Burgettstown, 8/19 Darien Lake and 8/22 Holmdel are the cream of the crop.

The 8/24 Clarkston show is also a keeper, well worth it for the Lovelight>One Way Out encore jam with Robert Randolph, plus an excellent Jessica.
