Thanks. Check out the video, too. Not the most exciting of all songs on the DVD to preview, but very cool.

Can't wait to read it. Sounds much better than the Scott Freeman book.

It doesn't say "two warring factions." It says "warring factions."

Cool. I take it Dickey was not interviewed in your research for this book?

From the review: "He manages to get every surviving member of the band—past and present—to be shockingly honest in their assessment of their music and relationships with each other."

So no, Dickey is included. Having read and enjoyed the candor from the first version of this book via kindle, I am looking forward to reading even more.

I just read the articles in Guitar World, and the Beacon Bits article says about the Great Woods DVD, "The disc features the entire September 1991 performance at the Massachusetts Amphitheater and, unlike the earlier version, does not interrupt the performances with band interviews."

Is it true that the DVD has the entire performance? Also, are the interviews included as bonus material?

Very good articles by the way, although the Beacon Bits article with Warren seems to end abruptly. I couldn't find it continued anywhere beyond page 76. Maybe I just wanted more. Good reads nonetheless, thanks.

Thanks. Sadly, it does not include the entire performance. They misunderstood what I wrote.. It includes entire performances of songs... not the entire show... To me, that's the only flaw.

I had a feeling that as the case. It's a shame, you'd think they have the whole show. Thanks for the response.

Yep, too bad they didn't unearth other songs filmed at this show for inclusion. And in case they couldn't find the rest of the songs it would have been nice to add some new bonus content from the same era. I surely will be picking it up but i'm looking more forward to the new 2CD Beacon set. Those interviews really sucked on the original DVD but i also had the VHS tape without them mixed into the songs and a transfer to DVDr .

I made a DVD of the VHS as well. I was aghast at the lousy Official DVD release. I can't wait for the CDs though. I have 1st and 2nd Set in the CD changer in my guitar room at all time. They will soon be joined by Play All Night. And I will lol.

MTV Unplugged from November 1990 would have been nice, but ownership is probably in the hands of another company.

Beggers can't be choosers and I'm excited about both releases. This was when I had full-on ABB fever for the first time.

Alan...love your writing and planning to see/hear you and your band on the 22nd.

But,to be honest,I was on the ropes about buying the book figuring I've read it all and what more can I learn or care about regarding the Brothers that I haven't heard or read already?

But,I read the review and it made me think of all your interview articles that I enjoyed and the 400 pages of every survivor in the band being interviewed....I just ordered it from amazon!

My sentiments exactly, not that I personally have read 'it all' but I have read Willie Perkins book, Red Dog's book and Gregg's book, so ... ?

someone sent me a dvd of the laser disc transfer, which was the same as the VHS.

I think I'll stick with that since it is still the same exact show


Will read the book, since I enjoyed the e-book

Dad and others, thanks.

I am the last person to pretend to be objective, but trust me, you have not read it all. This book got really interesting for me as a writer when I started really learning things and I learned a lot. There's a lot in there that has never been reported or written.

Also quite a few unpublished photos, and an original piece of art that I'll leave a secret for as long as possible.

As for the DVD:

No, and I found this odd, frankly.

They did not record the rest of the show, which is such a pity. There is nothing left over from this. It as recorded for Japanese TV and they had limitations on what they could film/show.

There is always more to learn. Everyone an author interviews has a point of view and if you can get them to open up about something it can reveal information beyond their purview because you now have that information to present to others. One new story or memory can spark a chain reaction. Or it could go absolutely nowhere, but you still have that trinket of information. One little bit from everyone can really add up.

Also, sometimes the information isn't new but the author's presentation is more thoughtful and forms a clearer picture of events than previously offered. I've read Red Dog's, Willie P's, Gregg's, Skydog, Midnight Riders, the Dreams box liner notes, all other liner notes in ABB records and discs, interviews, articles in old magazines, and more and I still have unanswered questions. A single line or comment can send me searching for more information on my own.

I welcome any new tome to the collection and I'm looking forward to One Way Out. I'm trying to decide if I should drive out to Maplewood from Scranton or just order it from Amazon.

Alan, thanks for clearing that up. Odd indeed that the interviews were left off.
