My #1 favorite is from September 19, 1971... I rant about this one a lot; it's about 16 minutes long and just goes everyplace. Second-favorite from the Duane era is Feb. 28, 1971. My favorites with Jack are from 6/21/97 and 3/14/98, and my top Derek-era versions are 9/4/99 and 8/4/2000. I think the best ones I've heard from the current lineup are 3/24/2001 and 3/24/2002.

Any version with Duane.
Jack also had the feel for this tune. I especially like 9-19-98 Great Woods...the whole band smokes on this one.

Any version I hear live at the Beacon. For me, that is the one song that is just magical to hear at that theatre.

Here, here on both the First Set and 9/19/71 nominations. Killers. I also like the Jimmy/Warren treatment from the One For Woody show (9/21/2000, I think). My favorite with Derek was the only version I personally saw live, and that would be 8/7/2001.

9/19/71 is definately a killer Dreams. I also like the Dreams from 7/26/70, 1/31/71, 4/4/70

15 minutes long and incredible. Gregg adds a special "U Huh" that is spine chilling after the 2nd chorus.

Gotta agree with Marley on this one, although the Crowes do a killer rendition as well.

hello, this is my first post on the site but i read it everyday in my study hall class at school. i have a live version of dreams(one of my fav. ABB songs) with derek and warren playing but i have no clue what the date is, it starts out by gregg introducing it and say "this is kind of an old song, the only song i had with me when i showed up to join the band..." then it kicks off, anyone know the date on this? btw Marley is awesome

After years of not noticing, I have concluded that Warren's slide solos are my least favorite on this classic.

I actually really like the version from the "Brothers of the Road" DVD at the University of Florida in 1982 - Dickey just really smokes on his masterpiece of a composition.

I was at the 9/4/99 show, and Derek just blew my head off. Absolutely incredible! Normally I agree with those who don't like Warren as much on Dreams, but check out the recent 9/20/02 show from Atlanta and you may change your mind, it definitely got my attention. My favorite Warren Dreams to date.

I don't remember when I noticed it, but his slide work on Dreams "screeches" to my ears.

Maybe it's b/c the slide players that followed are more subtle with their approach. Who knows?

All good choices -- the 9/17/71 Memphis show has an incredible version, similar in length & ideas to what they played two nights later in Long Island (which in turn makes me curious as to the 9/18/71 version in Dayton OH -- am not 100% sure it's on that set list but it'd be my guess). A version they played with Jack during the 1998 Beacon run is also fantastic. I've also always loved Gregg's solo version with the orchestra from his live record.

Warren really works his solo up to a major climax in that song...is that appropriate for Dreams? maybe, maybe not - but when Warren brings the "grimace", watch out

I dont think any will compare to the Duane era Dreams. His slide playing is wonderfully subtle on every version of that song I have. And you do have to give creedence to the fact that they were young hippies playing "dreamy" music. In the words of Dickey, they were "cosmic travelers."

One of the biggest reasons Duane era Dreams rule is b/c he gets to take the entire solo. Adds more to the effect. Would've loved to hear what Jack could've done with the entire song.

Marley and I had this conversation quite awhile back, but did Dickey ever play a slide lead on Dreams? On that 1998 Beacon tape, it sounded to me like Jack played a straight lead, followed by Dickey on the slide -- it sounded like Dickey to me primarily because of the volume of his guitar, as well as the tone, but Marley & others felt that wasn't right.
Man that was awhile ago too, and I still haven't pulled that tape out since to double check. I'm sure it's Jack though.
Good comments Bumba & Finsky.

What about the Molly Hatchet or Buddy Miles version? They both suck, imo. Bad.

I was at a couple of shows last year where the after show comment was, I wish we would have gotten a Derek Dreams.

Any version with Duane is my preference over any non-Duane version. But it is all good, except for Molly Hatchet and Buddy versions..

Stephen,

Every now & then when I listen to a show, those things happen.

"Wait a minute..... that ain't Dickey/Warren/Jack/Derek...."

I forgot the date, but Dickey plays slide on Statesboro Blues, & you bet I rewinded it just to make sure I was hearing things right.

Also, you sure Dreams was played on 9-17? Of all the tapes I've heard, I haven't seen or heard it on that date. The CLEANEST(audio quality) live version of Dreams I've heard is 2/28/71. And it's a keeper.
