That will all change when the new CD comes out!

Since Dickey was the primary instrumental writer, on my iPod I made a compilation of Dickey-penned instrumentals from all his projects from ABB to Highway Call, Dickey Betts Band 80's, DBB 2000, and Great Southern on Collectors #1. And, yes, I included "From The Madness Of The West" - I like that one quite a bit, especially in context with all Dickey's other pieces.

I like to listen to instrumental music when I read and this collection is perfect for that. Sometimes little bits creep into my consciousness as I'm reading and I'll be pulled out of the story. it helps me hear things in a peripheral way and notice things I may not have otherwise.

My favorite Dickey songs are definitely the big instrumentals, and that is his biggest and best contribution to the band in my mind. Besides the ones listed, don't forget Kind Of Bird and True Gravity.

I've always loved the instrumental side of the ABB, and it frustrates me that they don't play Egypt and Bag End more. I think Egypt in particular captures the magic of the classic ABB instrumentals, without being too derivative of them, and is worthy of being in stronger rotation in the current lineup's setlists.

Kind Of Bird and True Gravity - I love both of those. The versions with The Tonight Show Band & Doc Severinsen are a revelation. Strangely enough, it was during "True Gravity" at the Wisconsin State Fair in 1996 that I realized Warren & Woody had outgrown the ABB. The 2 of them had a fire missing from the rest of the band and I knew they'd be leaving soon. It was a horrible feeling because I love that lineup.

I thought Instrumental Illness tried too hard to sound Allmany, but Egypt and Bag End are organic offspring of the new millennium lineup. I like all three because they launch great jams but I wonder what succinct studio versions of Egypt and Bag End would sound like.

Because they have not had good management and they only get together once every 6 months to play for two weeks.
