Not the Arista linup. The 79 lineup.

For some strange reason I cant get this thing to turn into a link. so I'll have to get you to it this way...

Go to Sugarmegs using the link below

Scroll down until you find the ABB concert identified this way...

ABB/1979/4-20/John Belushi/Capitol Theatre/Passaic/NJ.

Download it to your media player.

Start at the 46:30 mark. You'll be glad you did.

Butch breaks a drum, so there is a bit of a break, So Dicky goes into a little slide guitar jam to kill time and it just takes off from there...

This lineup is more than OK in my book.

Big Dave,

My 1st was in 79 as well.

It was an outdoor venue in the southern most reaches of Ohio.

They smoked. No synth, no 3 back up singers.

Just the brothers...finally back after the implosion in 76 that caused the break up. I loved having the twin lead guitars back!

I'd say "Enlightened Rogues" is EASILY the most overlooked/underrated ABB album.

I'll go a step furthur and say that I think Enlightened Rogues is abour 98% as good as Brothers and Sisters.

The Arista albums are not even close, but for me Enlightened Rogues is in the same leaghe as Brothers and Sisters.

I love the 79 line up. I listen to the Merriweather Post Pavilion show from 79 quite often. They should still do songs from Enlightened Rogues.

Enlightened Rogues I've always thought of as a great Allmanized version of what DB&GS were doing on their two albums, Atlanta's Burning Down & the self-titled -- whereas the two Arista albums are quite different, new musicians, producers, label, situation etc. -- the two Arista records have their own niche, so to speak...

Dan Toler and David Goldflies were as good in the ABB as they were in DB&GS -- again it was almost like the same band in a way, just an awesome extension of the 2 previous albums -- shoot DB&GS played Crazy Love at some summer '78 gigs -- but the guys got together & brought in Tom Dowd & really raised the bar w/Enlightened Rogues -- I love that album

I wouldn't put Enlightened Rogues on the same level as Brothers and Sisters, but I do love that album. I think "Can't Take It With You" is a smoking song with some real organic fire to it. I listened t the album the other day. It reminds me of a day and time when the ABB actually put new studio albums out. Even when you think of the times when the band broke up, they still didn't go this long without producing a new studio album. Back in the day, you always stayed tuned to Rolling Stone magazine as that is where the inklings of an ABB reformation first showed up to those not in the loop. I still have the 1979 issue of RS with the ABB article.

Tell you what.

That 4-20-79 is just killer. If they EVER get around to giving us an archive from 79, 4-20-79 should be it, imo. For now I could go for a soundboard of that. Or even a good quality audience tape.

I may mosey on over to taper board is see if its out there somewhere.

I must agree with D28guy... I listen to Enlightened Rogues as much or more than Bros/Sisters. From Crazy Love to Cant Take it with you to Pegasus to the great organ and vocals that Gregg does on Just Aint Easy to Dickey saying "do this one for the bros" and Just Aint Easy I think its a great recording. I had hoped the band would've incorporated a couple of those songs into set lists by now...

My first show was in 79 also, & haven't stopped since. I really like Enlightened Rogues too and have wished for a long time that they would play songs from all of the albums that we never hear from anymore.


Happy Holidays everyone !

Gotta disagree here...."Brothers & Sisters" captures all of the emotions surrounding the loss of two brothers....In addition, the introduction of Chuck Leavell and his amazing playing on "Jessica"..and "Jelly' Jelly" is something not approached on ER... "Pegasus"... "Need your love so bad" and "Just ain't easy" are worthy of praise, while the rest of it is pretty unimaginative.
"Crazy love" is right up there with ABB songs I could go without ever hearing again.

It's a good album, but one I hardly ever listen to. Better than the later Arista recordings, but Imho, nowhere near the creativity of Brothers and Sisters.

You may be right....either way I always feel a good vibe when I hear it. And Crazy Love I could also not hear again live...but in 79 when I saw the band doing it well, it was the ABB ya know

I've always thought it sounded like Dickey, and to me it sounds like he's saying "brothers", but kind of slurring it, like maybe he had "had a few"... or maybe "smoked a few...

Just the way it sounds to me.
