I realize that these projects take a great deal of time, especially with recordings as old as they have been. I would like to raise the issue of a quality '79 release. Everyone else can add in their positive and negative comments, but of all the '79 shows, there is no real pristine version out there. Obviously they have the tapes from Merriwhether Post in 7/79 (although maybe not the entire show) since Just Ain't Easy and IMOER appear on the Dreams boxed set.

I know everyone want more Duane/Berry shows, but I believe a '79 show would showcase that band whose unique songlists and renewed energy are quite enjoyable. My two cents, let the debate begin.

Sam, I have to agree, a good archival release from each era of the band would be desirable. My first ABB show was in May of 1979 in Indy. I've always loved the Enlightened Rogues album. I'll second your idea for a ER era archival release.

I love the Duane/Berry era stuff the best, myself. The draw back is that era encompasses a relatively short time frame and a lot of the shows have familiar set lists. By early '71, songs like Dimples, Outskirts, Pretty Woman, etc., had been cut from the set lists. For me to get excited about a new DA/BO era archival release, it would have to have songs that weren't typical of their set lists. Of course, I would NEVER thumb my nose at one. I'd buy it, regardless.

For a while it looked like they were going in that direction.

Duane era 70, Duane era 71, the 5 piece band 72, then Dickey/Chuck 73. It appeared that the 75 tour or the 79 Dickey/Dan Toler band would be next...but they went back to the Duane era.

I sure hope they include a really hot 79 concert. No keytar, no back up singers, etc. Just classic ABB. Enlightened Rogues is such a smokin hot ABB record. A classic.

I saw them live in 79 and they tore it up.

D28, the show I saw in '79 did feature Bonnie, but I can't recall if Lawler was there yet, or not. I think that because Bonnie was part of the recording sessions of ER, she was also present on the tour. So, I'd be perfectly happy with an ER era show with Bonnie and no Lawler.

I'm up for a good '79 show.

There's a New Year's Eve '79 show in the Vines that is pretty cool.

a 79 show would be logical, but I'd really like to see a Jack-era show get released. I know with trading and vines, they are widely available, but it just seems like that era should see an official release (especially for those of us that don't really trade).

I'm all for '79 as well but at some point I'd really like to see a Jimmy Herring or Jack Pearson era release as well. in particular, the September '00 era shows with Jimmy and/or a '98 show w/ Jack & Dickey doing True Gravity.

I would love to see the band release more post-DA/BO era shows. The Chuck Leavell/Lamar Williams era offers some great songs that weren't around during the previous era like Ramlin Man, Jessica, and Les Brers in A Minor. (Les Brers appears on Eat a Peach but Duane doesn't play on it.) As evidence by the Wipe the Windows album, the CL/LW era offered some cool interpretations of songs like Liz Reed. If I had a vote, and I really think I should, this would be my choice.

Sounded like someone from HTN recently said another archive release was being worked on...not sure when or what year, though.

I think a '79 show would be fun. A chance to hear some songs that aren't played a lot anymore...

But then again, I'd buy pretty much any release

I don't care what they release as long as they keep on releasing these past shows!

Sign me up for a great 1979 show here. I really hope that is the next one. That version of the band did dreamy, "wet" classic takes on Elizabeth Reed.

They could also release the 1986 Madison Square Garden show: Gregg, Dickey, Jaimoe, Butch, Chuck & Dangerous Dan (Bruce Weibel on bass)

I would vote for any show that had an unusual set list. Me?... No real desire to hear more of Bonnie Bramlett, Dan Toler, Mike Lawler or Johnny Neel....How about a show with a great Guest appearance?..I was at a show in the early 90's where John Belushi came out and sang, somethin' like that would be cool.

What would people think of a composite release like the Grateful Dead's Road Trips concept? A release with songs from different concerts would be fine, as long at it maintains the flow of a full show (like live albums did back in the day, or like LAFE). This allows the best performances of a song to be included, although I wouldn't like any overdubs or too much "sweetening"

The new years eve show at the new haven colliseum was simulcast over [wplr 99.1] and yes I was there,and yes I recorded it when they replayed it at midnight. but sadly it was lost in my many moves over the years. Im sure there is a decent copy out there somewhere.

".I was at a show in the early 90's where John Belushi came out and sang" - that would be quite a show - must have been magic on the stage for Belushi to come out a decade after he died . . .

Big Dave,

I wasnt thinking about Bonnie Bramlette. I had no problem at all with her on the 79 tour. It was those others. The 3 or 4 that showed up during I think the "Brothers of the Road" tour.

There was no Mike Lawler or Keytar on the 79 tour.

Lawler and the Keytar showed up during the "Reach for the Sky" tour.

I saw them that year as well. I'll never forget the feeling that came over me when the keytar solo occured during One Way Out. Cant really describe the feeling, but I hope I never have it again.

"D"

A '79 show would be cool ... but how about some HOURGLASS ...

Big Ann has said that tapes exist ... and we all heard the tale that on stage they were nothing like the studio recordings that the record company made them put out ... so I think it is high time we heard some of that live material which must have been the forerunner to ABB material ... just my 2 pennies worth

I'm just curious about what is actually releasable.

I think some shows we will never see due to be under contract to certain labels.
How that works, I have no idea. Maybe someone could explain it.

Something tells me, we will most likely only see shows released from the 70's
(up to and including '79, prior to the Arista signing) and maybe after 2003 when
Peach records became official.

That said, it may be a little while longer since Kirk just went through a move and
all. Who knows how long before we see new product.

This is true. Unfortunately just about anything recorded officially in '79 (there is at least a very good show recorded for radio, which "Just Ain't Easy" & "Liz Reed" were released on the DREAMS boxset) is going to be owned by PolyGram (or whoever owns PolyGram now, I don't even know). Just as there probably aren't going to be too many more shows earlier than that available. The only reason they could release the shows they did were because they were private recordings owned by the band. Most anything else from that era is also owned by PolyGram (or whoever). I think everything from like 1989-2000 is owned by Sony. Unfortnately.

I would love to see a show by every lineup myself...
