Good choice.

I recently converted Certified Live from vinyl to cd.

One of the greatest live recordings.

For me Dave's is the definitive version of All Along the Watchtower.

He is great in concert-he can still play, he has a good band and his vocals are still strong and sharp.
Some of my favorites:

Pearly Queen
You can all Join in
Feelin Alright
Only you Know and I know. Think the ABB covered this in NYC this time around

Look At You, Look At Me from Alone Together, by far his best record.

I love that one too, but I gotta give the edge to Jimi's version....funny because Dave played on Electric Ladyland. As a matter of fact I think he plays the acoustic guitar on Jimi's version of AATW.

Went back to check this one as it is a Winwood vocal. Found it was written by Winwood/Capaldi.

My favorite is probably "Sad and Deep As You". One not mentioned on Alone Together is "Can't Stop Worrying, Can't Stop Loving". Very nice acoustic opening with simple and touching lyrics/vocal.

Correct, however, he does it on Headkeeper. Dave also does all along the watchtower a Hendrix tune. Do covers not apply here?

Funny this topic should come up...I just loaded my entire Dave Mason collection onto my iPod this weekend.

Being a big Dave fan, it would probably be easier (and a much shorter list) to name the songs that AREN'T my favorites (basically, the entire Two Hearts album)....probably not so much the songs, rather than the horrid "programmed drums".

I always enjoyed Dave's live versions of Winwood songs that he wasn't originally involved with. ("Dear Mr. Fantasy", "Pearly Queen", "Gimme Some Lovin'")

As far as studio albums, Alone Together & Split Coconut are probably my favorites, with It's Like You Never Left following close behind.

Just a nitpicky reminder (my apologies, I'm kind of OCD that way): Dave didn't write "We Just Disagree", his late bandmate Jim Krueger wrote that one. And, Bob Dylan wrote "All Along The Watchtower", not Hendrix.

fender31 ,

I'm always glad when someone starts a Dave Mason thread here . ( I've started one or two myself .) And always glad to see Dave get a good no. of responses from the board.
Esp. accounts from people who saw him live . Being in Australia I never had the pleasure. Had all his albums in the 70's then narrowed it down to Alone Together in a record purge due to a move to a small apartment.
chilli d ,
I didn't join this thread till now as I couldn't narrow it down to favourite songs . Favourite albums ? Yes. And I would have to agree with your choices of albums . With perhaps an honourable mention of "Certified Live ". ( I re-aquired them all when I bought my own house and can have a room devoted to records .) Split Coconut is a real sleeper which I believe did not cause too much of an impression in its day.
Which is the kind of career -stalling frustration which seemed to dog him after the initial buzz of Alone Together. I've read every interview with him on the net ( one from Goldmine mag . is very informative .) Did you know he signed away or somehow lost the rights to "Feelin' Alright " in the lean years . Sad.
Happily in more recent times he seems to have carved out a comfortable niche on the live circuit playing medium size venues ( casinos etc.) to appreciative fans. The US being so big , by the time he's covered it a year or two has passed and its time to re-visit wherever he started and the fans will come out again. btw his live show is killer . I turned a US internet friend from the Pacific NW who was barely aware of him onto him and they went to a show in Portland or Seattle which blew them away ! Like the ABB he does great , lengthy guitar jams on old songs. And he has a great band.
Also , like the ABB , he has his own version of "the Arista years" LOL . As you note , the "Two Hearts" album ,and might I add "Old Crest on a new wave ".These were Dave's "Reach for the sky" and "Brothers of the road"
Thankyou very much for the Ca. jam II clip of "Let it flow" . Just shows how a radio song can rock live.
There is a great DVD Live at Sunrise from 2002. And an acoustic one with just him an Jim Kreuger from the 80's.

I had a CD-R of the audio from that Live At Sunrise set, but, when I dug it out to load it onto my iPod, the disc apparently was damaged and wouldn't play. (common with self-burned discs)

I saw Dave & Jim do their all-acoustic set back in '82 when they were Fleetwood Mac's opening act. Who knew that in 12 years, Dave would be Fleetwood Mac's guitarist for a spell? Not too many Fleetwood Mac fans liked that incarnation of the band with Dave Mason & Bekka Bramlett (and Billy Burnette, too!)...but I thought it was really good. Too bad they didn't stay together long enough to really gel (and record a second album together).

It's been a long time since I've seen Dave in concert...I'll have to keep my eyes open for the next time he plays in my neck of the woods (or "stretch of beach", that is! )

I recently watched a show of daves and leon Russell in Albany NY in march it was terrific.Dave played 3 or 4 new songs from his last album 26 letters 12 notes they were very good, especially Good 2 U and how dioI get to heaven.The encore was feeling Alright and he told a story of how "The other day a guy asked him why do you sing that Joe cocker song,and dave replied "cause I wrote the damn thing".you could tell at certain points in the night when he would talk about playing in traffic that he would love to join Steve Winwood on stage again.
