What show have you seen live that you'd LOVE to have so can either watch or listen to again? I have seen a few special "to me" shows that I would love to revisit. I actually scored one of them yesterday.

If I had to pick just one concert it most likely would've been The 11/11/89 show at Madison Square Garden with Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The Fire And The Fury tour with alternating headlining acts Jeff Beck & Stevie Ray Vaughan and had limited shows in NY/NJ area. I targeted that MSG show to attend.

What an incredible night for my wife and I. For years I reminisced about the show. I had remembered how SRV had sadly told the crowd "I don't know about you, but this is my 1st time in this place and I like it! He was never to return. I recall Jeff playing Goodbye Pork Pie Hat complete not just the intro the tease before heading into Blue Wind. I was heavy into JB and still am.

I used to hit all the Boys Club & VFW weekend record shows looking for anything from that tour. The only thing I was able to find was a poor audience handheld VHS tape from their stop in Philly, I believe it was from the spectrum, it's buried in a box in the basement..

I post this thread because I just received a mediocre audience 2CD copy of it almost 25 years later. My memory banks flavored it up my recollection, but just a little bit. I remembered SRV holding onto the "I" of ""IIIIIII like it" and he didn't and I thought he came out with 3 from In Step to start, he did not, but both the fire and the fury flashbacks were true.

My only other time seeing SRV was at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ 11/28/86 for the Soul To Soul tour. He came out and played the 1st 3 songs of the new disc to start. He played Say What, Looking Out The Window, & Look At Little Sister. I had bragged about loving his confidence playing the new material to start his shows. Most others seem to dribble it in. I recalled him playing 3 off In Step to start his MSG show, but he opened with just 2 to start, The House Is Rocking and then Tightrope before going into Look At Little Sister. The lead work on Tightrope is just gorgeous.

I only scanned a couple songs and heard the crowd chatter and the brilliance of both Jeff and Stevie who are 2 of my absolute guitar idols. There was another thread about Jimi and I slated as my #1, but I have a few that are close. Jeff Beck with his control and flat out wizardry and SRV for his big ol' Texas blues heart he injected. He applauded and recogized those before him and took his version of it all to new places. An absolute dynamo live! Stevie played with dazzling clean speed but never forced his talent on a song or seemed out of place, when he chose to interject runs and fills it always fit. When he played with that heart he reached from beyond the speaker cabinet, grabbed you by the back of your head, pulled you closer, and made you LISTEN to him. Wow I miss him and long for what could have been. There's a multitude of R&R tragedies and the loss of Mr. Vaughan was certainly one them.



Here's my ticket album tribute to SRV with the Daily News picture from the sad story. I loved that they honored him with a nice article. He was deserving of at least that, Kudos to them, Some papers didn't consider it worthy. RIP Sir.




So anyone ache, long, or yearn for something they've seen?

Well, the ideal would REALLY be to have the kind of recording that would somehow put you right back into that show, the way it was, the way you were. Some amazing shows have a lot to do with more than just the music being played, do you know what I mean?

What I guess I still think of as the best show I ever saw was Eric Clapton at MSG in 1994 on his From the Cradle / Blues tour. Now, EC is great, but he is not in my top 10 or maybe even top 20 guitarists, but this was just one flat-out great show for so many reasons, some of which include sitting in a section full of people that really GOT IT, some being that it was the day after my best friend's wedding and I was full of good cheer, etc. It did not hurt that I only had moderate expectations, which EC easily crushed.

I got a mid-level-sound quality bootleg a few years back and cannot make it through the whole thing. It does not live up to my memory.

db.etree lists a proshot of the MSG SRV show and CD-R rated A- and A+. They also show an A- aud recording of the 11.28.86 SRV show.

Would have to agree about that tour. just seeing Stevie and Jeff doing Going down together was, and until this day, one of my greatest music moments of the last 44 years.

Would love to have copy of the Outlaws/Bad Company show I saw in '75 in St Pete. WOW!

I have a VERY poor copy of the Zeppelin show I attended in Tampa in '73. It's mentioned in the opening of the O2 show in 2007. If I ever found a great sounding copy of that.....

I know our shorts-wearing usher will agree w/ this one:

In Oct 2008, I saw Nickel Creek on their final tour at the Fox, w/ Bela Fleck solo opening. After a few truly solo tunes, each of Sara, Chris and Sean joined Bela to pick some. Then NC did their set and Bela joined for a good bit of it. An unusual show, played perfectly by all.

What was most remarkable is I have never been part of a more respectful audience. Hearty applause after each song, but pin-drop silence during. I was proud for us!

Maybe a cool souvenir from that SRV & JB "The Fire And The Fury tour" you might wanna pick up:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Fire-Meets-Fury/dp/B0073SI9E6/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC _S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=UXNZ3RYY9F9X&coliid=I26YNSC1RLZDU0

It's a "grey area" release. Maybe that's why it's listed as "import" in the USA and more expensive there.
Check the reviews.

Sounds like the audience was shipped in from Europe, Brock.

Nickel Creek on their final tour at the Fox, w/ Bela Fleck, no doubt about it & I was thinking of that one before I read Brock's post...I didn't know much about NC when I saw this but it's unbelievable to me that they didn't record and release some show from that tour, I guess they must have done other shows together--I have never heard anything quite like that including the audience reaction & it was pretty special whether you were in the pit or the gallery that night--"hittin' the note" at its finest. I had the opportunity to ask Sara about it later and I'm not sure she knew what I was talking about, but if anybody finds a copy of that on the internet, I know two people here who would like to hear that again!

other than that, I'll settle for the abb on 5/17/05, but everybody knows that already--I have Christmas and a birthday coming up soon & either or both of those shows would make fine gifts!

I'm still hoping on a live CD and/or preferably a live DVD from Warren Haynes Christmas Jam 2008 as an installment of the "The Benefit Concert" series.

I knew that would bring you out! Did some checking and show was 10-12-07, not 2008 as I said. GAF was at Chastain the next night.

IPowrie - I saw The Chris Robinson Brotherhood last year also. From what I can tell, most (if not all) of his shows are available for download. I purchased the 11/03/12 show in Raleigh. The Chris Robinson Brotherhood show catalog can be found here:
http://www.livechrisrobinsonbrotherhood.com/catalog.aspx

Not sure what show I would want, but I remember seeing ELP back in the 70's and would love to have a copy of that.

Many of us on this site have lamented that the Funky Meters show with Derek Trucks sitting in at the House of Blues in New Orleans has never surfaced Even so, the Howlin' Wolf Funky Meters/Derek show is available, and was probably a better show, so I don't mind that one so much.

The one show I have seen in my life that I would love to have a recording of is the very first Meters reunion show at Jimmy's in New Orleans in October 1988. It was the first time George Porter, Art Neville and Leo Nocentelli had played together in years, and as a Tulane student at the time, I was lucky enough to be there.

They played a 90 minute first set, and a 2 hour 45 minute second set! The entire second set was segues, the music never stopped once for almost 3 hours. In his youthful prime Russell Batiste was a force of nature on drums, I still can't believe the display that a young, hungry Russell put on that night.

I have been privileged to see a lot of great Meters/Funky Meters shows over the years, but that one really stands out as one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. I would like to hear it again for two reasons:

1) My state of mind at the time was such that I cannot be trusted and independent verification is necessary to determine if the show was really as great as I remember it
2) The historical value alone of such a momentous reunion really makes it a shame that this show was not recorded.

Led Zep has a huge amount from every tour, sadly they played mostly a repetitive set list, mirrored through out the tour. I have a couple from this month alone, this is from the MSG run. PM if interested. I'll look for Night 6





JFK, I have a couple long overdo follow-ups, but will love to barter for that SVR/JB stuff, Thanx for looking!

The Allman Brothers Band May 5, 1996 - The Louisville Palace. Just an incredible show by my favorite band. One of the few times Gress sang "I Know I Outta Leave".

1. Don't Want You No More
2. It's Not My Cross To Bear
3. Ain't Wastin' Time No More
4. Blue Sky
5. Good Clean Fun
6. Worried Down With The Blues
7. Tombstone Eyes
8. Stand Back
9. True Gravity
10. I Know I Oughta Leave
11. You Don't Love Me
12. Change My Way of Living
13. Stormy Monday
14. In Memory of Elizabeth Reed
15. End Of The Line
16. No One To Run With
17. Back Where It All Begins

Every bit as good as the Greenwood SC 5-1-96 and Birmingham 5-3-96 shows, but the audience recordings isn't as good as the other two.

The ABB was absolutely on fire that week. Maybe the best post 1989 week for the band.

1977, Pink Floyd, Animals tour.

I saw them in MSG and it was a killer show. It was the first time I noticed the vast difference in Gilmour's playing from studio to live. The smoothed edges of their studio releases gave way to a laser-sharp attack and far more power than ever came across on record.

With the set filled Animals in it's entirety, Wish You Were Here entirety, and Dark Side of the Moon selections for the encore, what wasn't to like?

It was the last tour where they went out primarily as a foursome. Snowy White might have been there helping out a little on guitar (but not on stage much), and I think Dick Parry did his usual thing on sax, but that was about it.

I'd love to have a great film with a well-engineered sound track of that tour.

Another one I'd love to see is CSNY in 2006. I saw them in the Theater at MSG (sitting two rows behind The Donald!). I was stunned how good a show they put on that night and how good they sounded. They made a rather limp film about the tour, focused more on politics than music, but obviously have the footage to make a clean concert film if they wanted. I wish they would.
