During another thread the other day when people were talking about missing the DTB, it was mentioned that there are over 900 DTB shows on archive.org. It occurred to me that could be a little overwhelming to people. Where to start? Which shows are worth the download?

In the spirit of turning people on to good music, I thought I would post some of my favorites. Please feel free to chime in with your favorite DTB shows on Archive, with links if possible.

I'm going to start with what is probably my favorite DTB show to listen to, period.

http://archive.org/details/dtb2005-02-11.flac

I have no personal bias towards this show. I wasn't there, I don't think I even know anybody who was. I just stumbled upon it one day on the Archive, and was blown away. The verysions of Kam-ma-lay, Hey Driver What City? and Rastaman Chant on here are breathtaking. Derek's tone has never sounded better and the sound quality is excellent.

Now for one that I was at....

http://archive.org/details/dtb2007-07-21.391.flac16

I think this was the last time I saw the DTB without Susan, and even though I'm not as critical of Susan as some, that is how I prefer my DTB. Spectacular versions of Sahib Teri Bandi/Maki Madni and My Favorite Things are the highlights, to me. For My Brother is another good one. This was a beautiful night under the stars in Minnesota.

These are a few of my favorite things How about you?

I really appreciate you making this list. Maybe you or others can help me further with this.
I have been an ABB fan from the beginning, 1969. Was the first to introduce them to my friends in high school , and to this day they thank me for it. I am a big fan of Derek, and have all of his solo stuff. I love his ABB, but confess that I still haven't found the key to unlock the door to his DTB music. Can someone suggest a song or somewhere to start? I really respect his skill and depth and know I am missing out, but I just have not connected yet.

No problem peteymann, folks like you are exactly who this thread was designed for.

At the risk of being redundant, click on the link to the 2/11/05 show I posted. The Kam-ma-lay that starts the show is fantastic and really gets things going right off the bat, which is one of the things I like about that show.

Archive.org is set up so that you can listen to shows online and decide if you want to download them, so if that show doesn't do it for you, check out another one. I will post some more recommendations later.

Happy listening!

Was at the Catalyst show. Great show but it so hard for me to decide which DTB show is much better than another. A lot of it for me is just the songs that he chooses to do as I have my own favorites. For those that are new to him and the band I don't think it is a matter of finding the best shows but just enjoying each performance. I don't think there has ever been an "off-night" for Derek. Nice to know that there are a couple of hundred available instances to prove it! One that blew me away was his performance at the Fountain Blues Festival in San Jose on 5-9-09.

Good points here.

Also, some shows will "shine" due to the recording-quality and/or attentiveness and respect of the audience (aka lack of chatter). Though it's a matter of taste, how much one likes to hear the crowd or not.

Tip: When a particular recording knocks your socks off, note the name of the taper. The name (on Archive.org) is usually a hyperlink to other shows they recorded. You may find that certain names are associated with the really great recordings. (this is important because often there is more than one recording available for any show)

A couple of my favorites are Steven Gatto and Yossi Pollak.

this one is extraordinary - a FM radio broadcast - Sound-quality like a commercial release.

The Afro Blue is sublime. If you have time for one cut, that is it.

Of the DTB shows I taped, I have two favorites. Both were taped from the lip of the stage, where you can get a great pull or a terrible one. The Waterbury show sounds great and was one of the first times they started doing the Hendrix "Who Knows"tease in Get Out Your life.

http://archive.org/details/dtb2009-02-08.omni11s.flac16

The Sherman show was also done from the stage lip, but with the mics in front of Derek, so he is very high in the mix. Derek is so much more that his solos... listen to what he does during Joyful Noise:

Steven Gatto was responsible for taping more DTB shows than anyone, we owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

8.09 from National Harbor, MD with Soulive is very energetic.

Good thread!!

Rob,thanks for this thread....went and started picking through my dtb discs...pulled out 6/23/06 from Paramus Park...quite good.

I love Derek's tone,so much less harsh than his tone these days....

And,while in the past I complained about the playing of certain dtb members,as a band they really do cook...very hot....and,I used to be kinda cool towards Mike's singing,but after hearing it today after not hearing it for so long,I really enjoyed his singing.....

Time to re explore these shows....

Thanks again,Rob.....

Glad you're digging it Effie! I know you haven't always been the biggest fan of Kofi's keyboard playing, but listen to him go toe-to-toe with Derek on flute on songs like Pedro and you can't tell me the man isn't a virtuoso.

Just as it would be a mistake to overlook the "5 man band" era of ABB, or the Jack Pearson or Jimmy Herring shows, don't miss out on the version of DTB with Javier Colon on vocals. Here is one of my favorites...

http://archive.org/details/dtb2000-09-21.sbd.flac16

This show was on an "off day" during the Jimmy Herring tour in 2000, and Derek is on fire. Javier had a great voice and really shines on Big Head Salsa, For My Brother and Too High. Any Derek show with two Coltrane tunes is a keeper in my book, and this has great versions of Naima and Mr. PC. Check out the Preachin' Blues>Everything Is Everything>Preachin' Blues. Fantastic stuff!

This one has a really interesting setlist...

http://archive.org/details/dtb2000-11-18.shnf

Certainly the only DTB show that begins with Maki Madni>Too High>Mr. PC! Cissy Strut>Lively Up Yourself is another interesting combo. This is also one of the latest versions of D Minor Blues you will hear before it got phased out of the repertoire. The Javier era was definitely a transitional time for the DTB, and this show is a good example of that. Count Mbutu sits in for the whole show, before he became a full-time member, which adds even more uniqueness to this show.

Speaking of the Count, here is another favorite with him sitting in before he joined the band....

http://archive.org/details/dtb2003-04-12.flac16

This show from the Dogwood Festival is the only time the DTB played on the hallowed ground of Piedmont Park in Atlanta, I believe. Rastaman Chant and Sahib are fiery and tight, and Mike is in great voice on tunes like Down Don't Bother Me and Leaving Trunk. But the real star of the show is possibly my favorite version of Pedro. Just a spectacular rendition, which was played just as the sun was setting on a beautiful spring day. Perfect!

Hey Rob....listening now to an 07 show...just pulling out what pops up from my collection....

As for kofi...or the other DTB band members...I guess,that this time around I'm listening to this band as a collective,not focusing on their individual skills....as a collective,as a band they are really excellent...best I enjoy that without over analyzing their individual skills...Mike does come up much stronger as I listen again after not listening to DTB for a very long time now....

This is fun...and I'm recalling my favorite DTB show...I forget the year,but I believe it was a 6/22 show on a boat around the Hudson River...we sat right next to the band...no stage...and it was a kick ass show and a mighty good time...fun was too,that the musicians were so close they'd talk to us during the show...a wonderful evening and a beautiful memory....Derek's tone was so smooth back in DTB.....thanks again,Rob...you really got me to open my mind again to DTB!

yankweed, I was indeed at that show, but I don't think there were any tapers. If the band was taping from the soundboard, they have kept a pretty tight lid on it. Sorry I've been looking for that one for years myself.

On the other hand, the Funky Meters show with Derek from Howlin' Wolf WAS taped, and I can B+P it for you if you like. I don't believe it is available on any Internet taping sites, but we can handle it the old school way Had a great time at that show with our mutual friend PalmHead, who I don't see around these parts anymore.

Maybe my next post in this thread will be notable Derek sit-ins with other artists. Between Soulive, Lettuce, Steve Kimock, and Phil and Friends, there is a lot of good stuff in that category on archive.org as well.
