Tough call but it would be between Shades and Back where it all begins both super great LP's

Hittin the Note the playing is fantastic and I might be in for a bit of flak for this but as good as any of the early albums.

For me it would be 'Back Where It All Begins' which came out just when I started seeing the ABB closely followed by 'Hittin' The Note'.

I personally love the last 4 albums you can't go wrong with any of them.

Of those 4 my favorite is Hittin the Note.

The reason being that in my opinion the current lineup is the tightest and the most "Hittin the Note-est" lineup since the original band.

If I have to pick only one, I'll pick Hittin' The Note. There's some great songs here. This album gets better with time.

They are all excellent, my least favourite though is BWIAB while I do love it just seems more radio friendly somehow The title track is one Dickeys best ever songs and I love Soulshine (though not the Gov't Mule reggae version )
Seven Turns is a classic with Dickey shining again on the Title tune and Warren showing great chops for a newcomer
Shades is magical and Kind of Bird is one of my favourite instrumentals the band ever played
I remember hearing Hitting the Note for the first time and being very apprehensive of a Dickeyless album, but no worries it remains one of my very favourite albums of the last 10 years, I WISH WE COULD HAVE A FOLLOW UP

I like all 4 also with Shades Of Two worlds being my favorite. You really can't go wrong with one any of them.

I like "Hittin the note"...Why?....Well, I've always thought that with the other three works, there was one good to great album in there....

HITTIN' THE NOTE because the whole album kicks ass.

A close second would be WHERE IT ALL BEGINS, but there are about 2 or 3 filler songs that could go and then it would also be a killer album...

The other 2 albums have some amazing songs surrounded by filler.

I'm using the term "filler" loosely. Some of the filler is enjoyable enough, just nothing to write home about.

Tie between Hittin' The Note & Where it all Begins.......then Shades 2nd.....& Seven Turns a distant 3rd....

Shades Of Two Worlds

"Nobody Knows" & "Kind Of Bird" are worth the purchase on their own...


...then add "Come On In My Kitchen", "Get On With Your Life", "End Of The Line", "Bad Rain", it's right up there with ANY of the first 5 ABB albums...

...then the so-called "filler" of the album, "Desert Blues" & "Midnight Man" could be featured tracks on other ABB albums.


Even so, I could probably make a similar case about any of the other 3 albums in question, too.

Hittin' The Note...other than the first two ABB albums, not too many other ABB albums have had every song played in their concert set during the first year or so of their release. So, obviously the band itself rates this one pretty high.

I think any band would love to have these four albums as their entire output, much less the last four studio albums!

I can't pick, glad I don't have to- got 'em all!!!!

BWIAB!!!!

dickey at his peak. great tone from the guitarists there. there are some great groove songs on that album. and that album could have been made to follow up Brothers and Sisters and it would have fit in perfectly

HTN is more "kick your ass" rock n roll to me. it would not have followed up any of their historical albums as a natural progression. but it serves as a great last album.

I just wish they'd put High Cost Of Low Living back in the setlist when they fire the band up again.

My vote probably goes to Where It All Begins for consistency, but thank goodness these records were made.

True Gravity, Nobody Knows, Soulshine, Let Me Ride, End of the Line, High Cost of Low Living, Kind of Bird, No One To Run With, Old Friend, Seven Turns, Where It All Begins, Old Before My Time, Good Clean Fun, Get On With Your Life, Shine It On, Firing Line, Come On In My Kitchen.....I honestly wouldn't have nearly the appreciation for this band as a whole without those songs (and a few others).
