The setlist is great but dereks stories and attitude were the best.
Here we go:
Hop Wilson - My Woman Has A Black Cat Bone
Jack Owens - It Must Have BeenThe Devil
Howlin Wolf - Evil
Blind Willie Jefferson - Dark Was the Night
Bobby Blue Bland - Stormy Monday
BB King - To Know You Is To Love You
Elmore James - Done Somebody Wrong
Taj - Statesboro
Derek and the Dominos - Key to the Highway
Susan - You Got the Silver
ABB - Trouble No More

for me the best story of the night was one of his duane stories. derek was talking
about how after 35 years duane's influence still pops up. the story goes one evening when jimmy herring was in the band and he and derek went way out there on mt jam.
in his words, coming very close to the edge of what was acceptable to an ABB fan. after
the show derek, jimmy and oteil are on the bus and gregg comes in and says something like "what the hell was that" and walks to the back of the bus and closes the door. 10
minutes or so later gregg comes and says "hey, my brother and i use to argue about this. you know what, do what you want"!! what a cool gregg story and of course derek says duanes influnce still shines through.

*scroll down for at least 4 more memorable derek stories. it's worth reading.

I cannot list the Warren set tonight. If anyone else can do so that would be great. just look at the number of hits this post has. folks are interested!! I listed Jaimoe's setl as well, for those of you who missed it.

You gotta come to JFD or one of the Hayseed get togethers in Gadsden. I see a little more of Duane everytime I am there!

story number 2 from derek's sirius broadcast. when he introd Evil, he spoke of how
influential Howlin' Wolf was to the rock and roll world. he spoke of how much he enjoyed
and admired Hubert Sumlin's playing and that he has sat in with the ABB at the beacon. the story goes:
one evening derek is in a 15 passanger van with the great Hubert Sumlin, and other musicians i assume. Hubert is sharing stories, specifically one regarding him leaving Wolf's band to join Muddy. after about a month on the road with Muddy, he says that he missed Wolf and had to get back into his old band. derek says, "Hubert felt like Wolf was a father-figure and had to get back into his fold".

story no.3 from derek. when on tour with e.c. in japan a fan gave derek a bootlegg copy
of a '71 Derek & the Dominons show from tampa w/duane. his was captivated by the version of Key to the Highway. it was different and as derek said, had a very different bass line than the Layla lp version. derek calls eric and says "hey, i have this cd i'd like you to listen to". eric listens and says "man, i don't ever recall doing Key to the Highway like that" and i think he said that the band didn't play that song that often back in the day. the next day e.c. gets the band together and says lets do Key the the Highway, the same version from the tampa show w/duane! apparently, from that day forward they played the song every stop on the tour and started to add more Domino's songs after that.

I've heard/read Derek talk about this Mtn. Jam performance a few times before. Anyone know which show Derek is talking about from the 2000 tour? Of all the 2000 shows I have, I don't recall them going that far out on any of them.

"Far out" to the fan and "Far out" to the ABB could mean two completely different things.... Whichever, I'd love to hear that version

Me too.....I have seen them go way out there with ARU. Its great too. Sounds like Gregg got over it pretty quick. As an ABB fan from the start, I love it when Derek, Jimmy, Warren, or whoever guests to go way out there.

if i'm not mistaken, because like most of us here, we've heard the story about Derek
and Jimmy going off the reservation, so to speak, one night. i think it was the '00 Camden show. and of all the shows i have, and i have a lot of the '00 tour, i don't have this one. someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

Thanks, revonah, for adding these additional stories. Trying to remember why I don't have Sirius...

Wow, where to start? ....and thanks, Revonah, for relating the stories.

One thing I've alway felt as being obvious about the 2000 shows, both before and after May, was the emergence of Derek and Otiel as the "drivers of the bus." I saw Herring in the final show that year, and it looked pretty clear that the new front line was showing the way. I'm sure there was a period of adjustment here for the others, likely some resentment. But also vital in keeping the band from becoming a nostalgia act. Carried right on with Warren, after a period of adjustment.

Like Gregg said, he used to have the same argument with his brother. And judging by the comments coming from the band, as to their comfort level with each other, and by the finished product onstage, I believe the attitude of which Derek was speaking has been overwhelmingly a positive thing.

Playing outside the box. Playing at the edge of your ability. And the ability to play. The fundamental reason this band is the very best musical entity that the species of man has produced. And it leads right back to what Duane envisioned when he put all this together. Straight as an arrow.

So in other words, all that happened because of Capt. Skipper.

story no. 4 and i should stop obsessing after this one AND i'm supposed to be working.
prior to playing Statesboro Blues derek spoke of his respect for Jessie Ed Davis as a slide player and innovator of the implementation of slide into Rock and Roll. I may be overstating that a bit. derek then relates a Gregg story from the early days re Taj Mahal and the song Statesboro Blues. apparently Duane was ill or layed-up and Gregg brought over some records for Duane to listen to. somehow there was a bottle of Coriciden nearby, possibly Duane had a cold or something. Duane heard Statesboro Blues and was immediately attracted to the slide work of Davis. Derek then says "you know, thats how it all got started, a MONSTER was released"

I heard Gregg tell that story on the radio (King Bisquit?) around 1991. As I remember that version, Gregg talked him into doing some horseback riding, Duane's horse slipped, he fell, ended up with his arm in a cast. He was mad at Gregg for talking him into it.
Gregg brought the Taj album over to his room, propped it on the door, knocked, and ran.
Duane called him later, no longer mad, to tell him thanks and that he had learned from the album how to play while wearing the cast. This was in L.A.

Like the story about how Gregg got from L.A. to Jacksonville, and the foot-shooting party, this one also probably has several versions.
