Thanks for all your collective wisdom. Although I'm not sure how I will be able to only download 2 from 2009 after this discussion. I picked up 3/20 & 3/26, now I have more decisions to make.

My husband already thinks I'm nuts: "Why do you need to download so many shows?" (and he's a fan!)

For the short term, I'm going to listen to the last 4 shows (10/24, 25, 27 & 28) and put off the 2009 decision for a bit.

I'm going to miss those pilgrimages to the Beacon...but at least we have the recordings.

Thanks. I was not entirely successful at keeping that brief, but hey. I'm listening to the start of 3/14 now. If I had to pick the most underrated shows of the run, it'd be 3/16 and 3/23.


I went to three shows of the 2009 run and bought three shows. I didn't buy a single show that I went to...until today. Marley, you reminded me how crazy good Susan's set was and how insane the horns were.

I went to 3.10, 3.13, and 3.21 and bought 3.14, 3.20, 3.23 and now 3.21. Great hearing this one again.

As much as I like the Clapton shows and the Kingpins set, my favorite song from the whole run is probably Grits Ain't Groceries. Jimmy Hall exclaims at the end "that was tight, that was tight!" and damnation it was!!

If I had to name my top 5 shows from the run, they would be in chronological order:

3/19
3/20
3/23
3/26
3/27

Sheryl Crow on Can't Find My Way home is a personal highlight as is Bruce Hornsby on IMOER.

This is a great summary of that run. I attended a bunch of the 2009 shows (i live down the street, so I couldnt resist!). Totally agree on the Les Brers from 3/23 - that still gets a lot of play in my rotation. In that regard, I thought 3/23 was an underrated night. My other favorites were 3/19, 3.24 and 3/26. Also a big fan of 3/14. (3/20 is obviously a great one, and i have that show in my collection - i just happened to have attended 3/19)

3/20 and 3/26 are great choices. I'm in day 3 of "re-living" the 2009 run by listening to one show a day. To help you pick, here's a quick list of what happened every night:

3/09: Levon Helm and band, Taj Mahal (three songs each). Taj with the ABB is so much fun - I think he's the only guest who could steal an ABB show.

3/10: Johnny Winter and David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas from Los Lobos. Johnny's performance is pretty rough, but Los Lobos is one of the great American bands, like the ABB. This also has a very strong Les Brers in A Minor. Derek shreds.

3/12: Buddy Guy and Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell from Phish. Have to admit I'm not a big fan of either, but if you like Phish, here you get both guys on Liz Reed and Buddy plays three blues numbers. All three are on You Don't Love Me. The band is getting tighter and the Statesboro > Blues Is Alright closer is excellent.

3/13: The Juke Horns, Boz Scaggs, and Bruce Willis. The Boz songs are great - especially It Takes a Lot to Laugh, Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City, and of course the Loan Me a Dime everybody had been waiting and waiting for. The horns are used on typical songs. Bruce Willis is not a great harmonica player (he's better than me, but still) and he's a little off on One Way Out.

3/14: "Jazz Night." One of my absolute favorites with Randy Brecker (trumpet), Lenny White (drums), and Stanley Clarke playing the bass solo instead of Oteil. Also has Robert Randolph- I'm not a fan. But Dreams, Liz Reed and In a Silent Way are fantastic. Also has a Mountain Jam/Dazed and Confused encore.

3/16: "Ladies' Night." Bonnie and Bekka Bramlett (plus Susan Tedeschi for one song), plus John Hammond. I think this show gets a little overlooked. Gregg really pushed himself because Bonnie was around. The "Oncoming Traffic" on this show is the best live singing I've ever heard from Gregg. The way he sings "I just don't give a half a damn" - you can hear Bonnie gasp a little bit. They do some Delaney & Bonnie songs together, Delaney having died a few months earlier. John Hammond is also an awesome guest and runs through some old blues numbers with the band. And if all that isn't enough, the Jessica encore cannot be missed. I've posted about this in depth, but Derek and Warren play some improvised counterpoint before the bass/drum break and if I had to pick a single most beautiful improvisation I've heard this band do, that's it.

3/17: "Cowboy Night" with Tommy Talton and Scott Boyer, plus Brian Mitchell and Sheryl Crow. The Cowboy guys play on three songs, including Please Be with Me and All My Friends, and you can feel how meaningful it is for everybody. Some people are down on Sheryl Crow's sit-in (she was the rare guest to sing Midnight Rider with Gregg), but I think she sounds fine. Boyer shares vocals with Gregg on a better-than-usual The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.

3/19: Clapton, night one. Key to the Highway, Dreams, Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?, Little Wing, Anyday, Layla. Need I say more? Also has a first-set Whipping Post and another Oncoming Traffic.

3/20: Clapton two. Key to the Highway, Stormy Monday, Dreams, Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?, Little Wing, Liz Reed, Layla. Of the Liz Reed, Clapton later said to Oteil "I haven't played like that since 1967!" First set has a rare Gambler's Roll and ends with Mountain Jam. Most people feel this is the better of the two Clapton sit-ins. I don't disagree, but I mean, it's Clapton with the Allmans. You can't go wrong here.

3/21: Susan Tedeschi, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Bruce Hornsby. Sort of a hodgepodge of guests and I remember there were rumors that Dr. John was supposed to be there but got sick. Anyway, if you want to convert someone who isn't a fan of Susan, play them the versions of Stand Back and Lost Lover Blues from this show. If they're going to get her, they'll get her after they hear that. If not, it's not gonna happen. Southside Johnny kinda yells a lot. If you like horns with the ABB, this is the show for you. If not, well... Grandma's Hands is weird, but Bruce fits in very well on Jessica.

3/23: King Curtis band (Jerry Jemmott and Bernard Purdie), Jimmy Smith, Thom Doucette, Ron Holloway, John Bell and Jimmy Herring, Susan Tedeschi and Mike Mattison. Now we're in the "ton of guests" part of the run. Jimmy Smith and the King Curtis guys do Soul Serenade and Soul Stew with Mike and then stick around for Them Changes. Also has Ron Holloway on Desdemona. The Widespread Panic guys do great stuff, in my opinion, on Gilded Splinters, And It Stoned Me, and Can't Find My Way Home. John Bell is not for everybody, but still. The full-band Little Martha > Blue Sky > Little Martha that lasts eight beautiful minutes. Jimmy and Derek RIP IT UP on Les Brers for my favorite favorite modern-era version.

3/24: Bob Margolin and Sonny Landreth, Thom Doucette, Billy Gibbons, John Popper. Landreth is one of my favorite guitar players and Midnight Rider gets a rare extended treatment. Too bad the Billy Gibbons set doesn't come with DVD; the band came onstage for Jesus Just Left Chicago wearing fake gray beards and sunglasses. It was hilarious. The playing is good and Billy's stage patter is classic.

3/26: "Beginnings Night." 'Nuff said. The band plays the first two albums straight through with no guests, and most people agree it's one of the best things they did in their later years if not their single best post-reunion performance. Black Hearted Woman is a barnburner - my pick for their best take on the song - and the Dreams and (20-minute-long) Whipping Post to finish the first set are just about perfect. Gregg's voice is pretty rough by the end of the show and the end of Statesboro is sort of a mess, but it's a classic no matter what.

3/27: "Southern Rock Night" with Jimmy Hall, Kid Rock, Ivan Neville, Devon Allman, and Berry Duane Oakley. Jimmy Hall's performance is fantastic and he's one of the best guests of the whole run in my book. He sings and plays harp on The Sky Is Crying and Keep On Smiling and sax and vocals on Grits Ain't Groceries. Kid Rock does his best and clearly loves the band but he really can't sing, so Soulshine is kind of painful and Can't You See isn't a whole lot better. The ballad-style Freebird is weird. This show has a lot of meaning for me personally because Oteil played my brother's bass on Keep On Smiling and Soulshine, and despite some oddness the highlights are great.

3/28: "We'll Be Here All Night Night" with Chuck Leavell, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and Floyd Miles. Chuck is terrific on Stormy Monday, Come and Go Blues, and of course Jessica. If you're not a big Deadhead, Bobby and Phil's mini-set might drag for you: it took them 40 minutes to play three songs. (This came after a 45-minute intermission. Yes, I'm still annoyed about the music I didn't get during that hour and a half.) After that the ABB rallies with three more songs, including Chuck on piano for Mountain Jam and Statesboro Blues to close out the run.

I love Munckmusic. I have downloaded well over 100 shows including the first five of this last run. At least with no more shows on the horizon I can start the process of getting them all!

As someone else said, 3/20 and 3/26/09. I was at 3/26. Just incredible. Until Monday night, that was my favorite show of this line up. Now I think it's a tie. And 3/20 and last night are my too big regrets of missing.

I have the 3/26 DVD. Is me or is there something about it that doesn't bring out how great the show was. ? Maybe just my memories of the night are over the top ?

The show with Boz Skaggs was great. Killer "Ain't No Love In the heart of the City" and "Loan Me A Dime"

Also the 2 shows with Eric Clapton.

Those are the 3 I bought, no regrets!

10.11.08 Chaistain second night.
One of the best first sets ever, imo.
Super solid show all the way through.

3.21.05 - not on Munck, but worth the digging.

Two of my personal favorites are 3.14 and 3.23 - not just from 2009, but from any of the Brothers' shows of the last 14 years.

momsaterp - I went through a similar process about 2 years ago. I was unable to attend the Beacon run in 2009 but had watched some stellar you tube of the two clapton shows. After closer study of the you tube videos I choose the 3/20 show. You can't go wrong including that one. I have yet to hear a better Liz Reed - just mind blowing with absolutely nothing in the mix to detract - perfection. It is in my workout mix and I listen to it at least 4 to 5 times a week and it just does not get old. Great versions of Key to the Highway and Little Wing. The only show that comes close to this one is the 3/20/10 show at the United Palace which I would also highly recommend. Enjoy
