Get 3 -11-98 Beacon or the 9-12-98 Raleigh. Man, killer second set, You Don't Love Me, Dreams, Blue Sky, In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed!!!!! Jack is flawless as always. I like his solo instrumental disc as well, it has Jaimoe on it.

Other good shows from a Jack point of view...

8/7/97 - great Dreams
9/20/97 - smoking throughout
10/3/97 - awesome lizzie solo
3/14/98 - probably best lizzie solo of all of them!
3/20/98 - another good lizzie and a good high falls!
7/2/98 - cooking throughout
7/4/98 - unbelievably good dreams
9/8/98 - there is a really good copy of this circulating (sbd/aud matrix) and jack cooks on it!
3/28/99 - jacks last show and he is on fire

...

Jack is also very good, as is the whole band, on 03.26.99, the 30th Anniversary show. I agree with Holt's recommendations about the 03.14 and 03.20.98 shows; I was at both and they were flat-out stunning. Anything from either of those Beacon runs is worth having.
I was at Jack's (and Oteil's) second show with the band on 06.21.97. It's probably not the best show all-around, but I have to say that the Dreams from that show is about the most atmospheric thing you're ever going to hear. Jack doesn't play notes on it, he uses the echoes from the arena (Jones Beach is an amphitheater) and volume swells to play the feeling of the song itself. It's cool, and the result is downright spooky. Peace. --Marley

This was a fun research project. I just listened to the 03.14 and 03.20.98 Lizzies for comparison. Both awesome, but I'm still going with the second one (electric version) as my favorite. Dickey's solo on the 14th is better, however. Interesting to note, at least for me, is what I think is a quote from Santana's Soul Sacrifice in the electric version from the 20th.
MY, Jack could tear it up, couldn't he? I also listened to a show from '99, just because I wanted to. That was a great run. Maybe the Les Brers from the 26th will be next. (Damn, I wish that was still in the repertoire.) There's definitely no such thing as a bad Jack show. Consistent excellence is difficult to achieve, but he did it. Much like Duane did. Remember what Butch once said on the old Forum: if Duane were playing today, he'd sound like Jack Pearson.
Happy trading, Holt. Peace. --Marley[Edited on 2/2/2002 by Marley]

Hey Marley - that's one of my favourite "quotes" from the Jack years. Another one I really enjoy is on the Dreams from 6/30/98 - Otiel made quite a habit of playing the "All Blues" bassline during dreams when Jack was in the band (although he doesn't do it so often any more) - on 6/30/98 though Jack takes the hint and about 2 mins into his solo he plays the main melody line usually played by Miles Davis on ye olde trumpet. It sounds very cool indeed!!!

Thinking of 3/14/98 by the way, it's a shame it falls apart at the end of Dickeys solo otherwise that would be on a par for being one of my fave lizzies ever. Jack is superb on it, utterly brilliant. It's a shame but that was the first tape I ever got with Jack on it, the first thing I ever heard with him playing on it. It's been tough finding anything as mind blowing as that ever since!!!!

p.s. are you on high speed internet yet!?!?

Jules,
It's certainly a cool version.
Some of my favorite modern takes on Dreams involve that All Blues tease; Derek got into the act with that a few times (maybe even Dickey).
And yes, I now have high-speed access. I'm on a T-1 line at school, and we just recently got a cable modem at home. So I download music and do all kinds of fun stuff that was impossible before I got this laptop. In fact, I'm listening to an entire set from Phil's last show in Chicago- and it's all on one file! Took only a couple of minutes to download. Beautiful stuff. As Raul Julia said in Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, "I'm interfaced!" Peace. --Marley

8/23/98 remains one of my alltime fave ABB shows.
Especially when you consider Jack had just returned from surgery and had to sit most of the show.

Two I would like to add are : 9/14/93 from Asheville NC with JP sitting in for Dickey.He and Warren have a jazzy go at Liz Reed that is stellar and another fav is 3/06/99 Beacon. JP was one player who could push Dickey to heights previously heard only with Duane Allman.

Let me make a pitch for the 7.4.98 Charlotte show, "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" -> I'll betcha I've listened to this thing (up through Jack's solo, anyway) 50 times, and it gives me chills every time. I read elsewhere about Jack sounding so much like Duane on certain other cuts - this whole solo is that way. Perfect.

He sometimes does sound quite a bit like Duane...other times he doesn't, but he has (to me) similar melodic sensibility. And he's got no end of technique or taste. Wish I could hear him play more often.

Let me add that the 7/4/98 show from Charlotte NC is one of the best Jack era shows I am lucky to have.Good call Standback and Jules! Dreams,Liz Reed and YDLM are stellar,and Jack gets to stretch out.Even some bird calls on Dreams...

Yeah:
Jack was/is my favorite since Duane. The guy was liquid! Nobody even comes close IMO

Marley:
I will always remember that Jones Beach show. That Dreams was the most amazing I ever saw bar none. Atmospheric is a good way to put it. He was wayyyyyyyyy out there, serving and vollying those notes off the back of the theater. Letting the music soar into space and then come cascading back down like a meteor shower. Trully inspired piece of work. Even had the bird calls at the end.
He also did a smoking version of Dimples that night too

I've been listening to the 7/2/98 show at the Sony Blockbuster E-Center in Camden, NJ, which I also attended. Jack's solo on Stormy Monday is breathtaking. I'm starting to think that Jack might just be the best guitarist to ever grace the Allman Brothers Band!!!!!

Yeah, my dad and I have said the same at times. The man clearly knows the entirety of the blues like a book.

Jack, good call about 7/4/98.

Anyone got any recomendations for great a great Jack ''High Falls'' or two?

I know one of the 2nd or 3rd nights of the '98 Beacon run was wicked slick, but I can't remember the date exactly...

3/7/98 was good
as was 3/20/98
as was 10/3/97
as was 9/5/98 (with some nice call and response with Dickey)
as was 7/2/98 (one of only two times Jack played slide on it)
as was 3/15/98

I really worry about myself sometimes!

The riffs in "J.J.'s Alley" on 3/26/99 are just astonishing. (Well, you know Jack's playing is ALWAYS astonishing)...

One of the things I'd like to add is that when I first heard Jack with the ABB in 97, he played somethings (8/16/97) that BLEW my mind, and still do to this day. Particularly in "Liz Reed". I saw him several times after that, once with the GAB in Jan 98. And his playing was equally mind-blowing, but so completely different. I was just astonished at how versitile he is. I also like that as talented as he is, he isn't constantly "showing off" he has so much taste...

Yes, the 93 shows where he fills in for Dickey are great too, Warren & Jack play really well together. I have 3 or 4 of those shows and each one is excellent...

That's a monster JJ's Alley, Pauli. Great call. That was a special night.
