First (and only) time I've seen this line-up. Derek is great and Warren is great - don't get me wrong. But the band was at their strongest after they released "Shades of Two Worlds." So I've engaged in a de facto boycott, until last night.

What Derek and Warren don't do, which sets them apart (and not in a good way) is to create the false climaxes in their solos that Duane and Dickey invariably did. This makes the songs less of an emotional experience.

What Dickey did so well, when he was at his best, was to open a solo up and find all its parts, turn them over, reconstruct the shape, back off and rebuild again.

That said, Derek and Warren can take a song to a point where it's crazy intense. They did that with High Falls, which really is a Dickey song through and through.

Other thoughts: Butch's absence was really felt in the drum solo, which didn't really go anywhere. Oteil was too deep in the mixing board. Marc was impressive on Butch's kit. Gregg looks great! Wish he'd remember the words more often or improvise louder.

The brass section was interesting. Some fine solos.

The encore, One Way Out, was the weakest thing in the show.

I've never seen them not do IMoER, but I've never seen this line-up before. Somehow, I think they did me a favor.

You boycotted the band because you didn't think Derek Trucks is strong enough? How much Trucks have you listened to?

You didn't read what I said. Trucks is great, and he's more than strong enough. It's just different without Dickey. Even when Duane was alive, the band depended on Dickey's deep knowledge of country swing to give the songs depth.

Yea agreed, Dickey Betts is a genius. I don't think it's fair to say something negative about Derek Trucks (specifically what you said about false climaxes). That's why I asked how many recordings of the current band you've listened to because you said you never saw them before.

Dozens and dozens. And the first time I saw the Tedeschi-Trucks version of Space Captain (Crossroads), I thought: okay, the ABB can retire now, and I'll be fine.

Let me try putting it this way (it might not help). Dickey was the Mozart, Duane was the Beethoven. Derek is more Liszt or Chopin.

I really missed Dickey last night, and I also know that the show would have sucked if he was there. "Peakin at the Beacon" is worse than the two Arista albums.

Amen Hineline. There are geniuses past. And geniuses present. 45 years of the sublime artistry. I feel pretty lucky. The synergies between Duane and Dickey and Berry and now Warren and Derek and Oteil are what make it magic for me. This is a band, not a sports team. It's music, not a competition. Listen - less head, more heart.

So, did Marc just sit in for Butch? Or did they have anyone else with them?

Derek's brother Duane sat in.
Pretty awesome drummer.

The set really took off with End of the Line. Who's Been Talking was probably my favorite song of the night. Come On In My Kitchen- Warren's vocal power never ceases to blow me away.

As for the gripe that One Way Out was the weakest song of the night. The bigger hits from the encore are usually conducted in a manner of "Let's get this over with". Whipping Post seems to be the exception to this rule.

Juke Horns have been on just about every Allman shows I've been to since '09 and I never tire of them. The horn section adds so much.


The 40 minute intermission was absurd. That was the longest I've experienced yet. I chalk it up to Gregg having to rest up, because I don't think they would take that long for intermission otherwise.

Here's my version of the setlist, with notes on the drummers:

quote:
Set One
Don't Want You No More*>
It's Not My Cross to Bear*
Done Somebody Wrong*
End of the Line@
Who's Been Talking@
True Gravity@
Every Hungry Woman*
Please Call Home+ w/Juke horns
Stand Back* w/Juke horns
Same Thing@ w/Juke horns

Set Two
No One to Run With@
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl^
Come On in My Kitchen* w/Juke horns
The Weight* w/Juke horns
Les Brers in A Minor#
encore: One Way Out#

*Jaimoe and Duane Trucks on drums, Marc Quinones on percussion
@Jaimoe and Marc on drums, Bobby Allende on percussion
+Just Marc on drums
^Jaimoe and Marc on drums
#Jaimoe and Duane on drums, Marc and Bobby on percussion

Jaimoe came and went or fiddled with his drums during a few other songs, as is his wont. So there were periods with no Butch or Jaimoe.

It was 40 or 45 minutes on 3/8.

That's ridiculous. I wasn't happy about that at all.

Last year at my two shows, the 40 minute intermission was the short one! The second night (16th) was 50 minutes.
