I know this is late coming... But I didn't see a response from anyone else:

Butch has confirmed over on Moogis.com that it is the new instrumental that Warren & Derek have written, which is not titled yet.

Oh what a night. The only bit of trivia I can add to what's already been said is Glenn Close was in the aduience behind us... and by the look of the smile on her face is a huge ABB fan.

Super pics!
Just got back from the city. Whew!
Most has already been divulged. Here's my additions:

-I was able to sit next to two other dudes who were also by themselves and we had a great time together. It totally made the show 10x better.

-Security was present but very loose I thought. The dudes in front of us (Row L Orch) must have blazed up 4 huge joints during the whole show and nobody said anything. Our usher was smiling all night and very helpful.

-The theater looks great. A little over top on the gold statues, but what the hell, it's NYC. Check out the ceiling if you're wondering where $40 million went. Lobby so packed I couldn't tell what had been done to it. Bathrooms downstairs got an upgrade.
-
-The show was amazing as noted. But there were some definite miscues that understandably happen opening night. Some of the early solo runs no one seemed to know who was up next. Derek "frowned" a couple of times when this happened. The rest of the band just shrugged it off.

-That said, this band is a powerhouse now. With Gregg in top form, nothing can stop them. I kind of felt the band saying to themselves, we can't stop this train now, we're too friggin' good.

-Derek has a new swagger that is welcome and overdue. He is not the #2 guy anymore. He's toured with Clapton and been on the cover of Rolling Stone since the last Beacon run and it shows in his presence. The weird thing he did on the Mt Jam solo was jaw dropping. Warren was awesome, but Derek took over from the beginning.

-Oteil was having a blast the whole night. You almost wanted to get a second bass player so Oteil can do more of his crazy **** .

-Oh, Gregg walked into the Beacon around 4pm through the front door of the theater to dumbstruck onlookers. The rest of the band used the side.

-The theater released a bunch of singles around 4pm.

-No early favorite in the new Yogi's competition. Bars over on Amsterdam were packed but not blaring ABB or busty partying bartenders.

I agree with Peteman's assessment of last night almost completely 100 %. The band was GREAT. So great to see and hear them playing again. I loved every moment of last night. I love Taj and think he is a great showman. I loved his take on the old blues tunes. It was nice to hear them done a little differently from the usual take.

Can anyone confirm for me that the instrumental is a new one? I thought it was something I had not heard before, but someone is saying it is called In a Silent Way, and I didn't think it was like the instrumental they opened with last year but I get a little fuzzy on instrumentals.

The Beacon was beautiful last night. It almost hurt to see a few spilled drinks and to see a few people smoking cigarettes. I felt the crowd was good but they were allowed to go into the aisles and that made it hard for me to see so I had to move my 151 dollar seat to a place where I could actually see. If people were kept out of the aisles, then I would not have moved because I had a lovely seat.

Anyway, it was a nice experience mostly last night and it was so good to see every body who I see at the shows again. Feels like Spring/Allman spirit.

Anyone notice Warren and Derek *both* playing Les Pauls on "Guilded Splinters"? I don't think I've ever seen that before.

Personally, I think Derek sounds better on the SG; it's a more fluid sound, and a better mix with Warren. But the bulldozer punch of those two Pauls was pretty cool for that one tune.

yes it was a Purple Haze to Other ones jam


I thought he started his solo with a "third stone from the sun" tease. But then again, maybe I just was THINKING it was that...

Body location - Ron -- good call. I've found that if I cinch up the strap and take the lens off, I can slip the strap over one shoulder and have it sit right under my arm and it kind of disappears under a jacket. The security guys rarely get their hands up in your armpits.

I don't think point and shoot digital cameras will be any problem. I saw them everywhere.

I'm loving that shot of Susan and Derek too. It was a really tender moment and it just reinforces what great folks they are.

Getting through some more shots now and they're fun. From my location, it was tough to see Warren some of the time and I could only see the top of Butch's head and headphones occasionally. Jaimoe and Marc - forget about it. Next week, I'll be close and in the middle, so hoping for some good stuff then. Tonight, it is up in Loge, so little possibility for decent shots.

It will be a couple days before I get back and unload the cards for some tweaking and clean up.

Gregg looked fit and healthy and sounded great - here's one shot:

I listened to Taj Mahal's Natch'l Blues on the train ride to NYC today, then he shows up on stage. Wow.

Still wound up from the show... Can't wait for tomorrow night. Never saw more smiles and looks of concentration on the faces of the band combined during a show. When Levon and everyone else was up there, wow again.

Security was very nice. I was patted down and the guard discovered a camera lens that would choke a horse. He looked at it and said OK. He found another lens stuck in my socks and said OK. He never found the body, but with a smile he said go OK and go on. I don't know what the current policy is for DSLR cameras, but I got my stuff in. Maybe he was relieved it wasn't a bottle, etc.

Just started going thru the pictures...

Here is a nice backlit pic of Warren. Brian was nice enough to give me a pick after the show.



I caught Susan and Derek embracing after the encore and enjoying the post show video on the big screen. Here is a nice silhouette of the couple.




Two absolutely fantastic photos....the one of Derek and Susan.....well...perfect. So, you said you don't know the policy on DSLR cameras....what about little digital cameras? I doubt I will be able to get a good shot from the Loge with our crappy little thing, but in the past year we've been able to get it into every show except an ABB show in Canandaigua. We use it to simply try to get one decent shot to put on our wall with our ticket stubs.

That show was sick. We were in the 9th row in front of Oteil. We got our Stormy Monday and the entire show was SICK...period! Security was very cool about the aisles last night as well.

I'm not sure if I want to know where the body was.

Gonna Have a Funky Good Time in the .44 by Warren in there too, as far as extra jams thrown in.

Was it me or did Warren play a "Purple Haze" tease inside of Black Hearted Woman? Also, I was able to sit behind the SBD tonite and saw the set list. The "official" name of the new instrumental is..."NEW INSTRUMENTAL"



YES!!!!!! Thank you!!!! I was sitting there and I heard it, but in the middle of the song just couldn't figure as much. Turned to the dude beside me, "did you just hear what that was??" He had no clue what I was talking about. A few minutes later, I was so frustrated trying to figure out what he played, I covered my ears and just hummed it over and over to myself, but w/ the actual tune still blaring away, I just couldn't get it.

THEN, I got on the train and started to try to remember, and by then had completely lost it.

THANK YOU!!!!! Now I can sleep tonight, instead of racking my brain to figure that tease.

First Beacon show ever for me. So awesome. Everybody can say what I say better. But, of the times I've seen the Bros. and Mule . . . for me, Warren has never been better than tonight.

And Derek on Mt. Jam . . . just sublime.
