I was watching the Great Woods DVD from '98 tonight and it got me thinking,
have the Brothers ever played "please call home" with the current lineup? it seems
like warren and derek could really take this tune to a special place.

The other thing that got me thinking..I recall in reading Skydog, they referred to Greggs "Every Hungry Woman" as the "filler" from the first album. What?? I understand the use of the overdubs and whatnot, but **** , what a killer tune! I've seen it a few times at the beacon recently and it has always, always, smoked!

I always hear stories of a track on an album that was added on at the last minute in the sessions as filler. The artist did not like the track, but the album was one song too short, so it was tacked on. Then it would become a hit.

I think "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath was created in this manner.

Also "Lucky Man" by Emerson Lake & Palmer on their first album, but I have heard conflicting reports.... I've heard interviews with Greg Lake and Keith Emerson that their debut record was one track short so they went into Advision Studio at the last minute and cut this old Lake tune (featuring the moog solo). However some other sources state that this track was recorded at the BEGINNING of the album sessions. So who knows? However I do know that "Lucky Man" was not considered a track initially worthy of release but it eventually made the cut at the end.

The current lineup did play "Please Call Home" in 2001 when Warren first re-joined on a trial basis. Also "High Falls" too. But I don't think they played either after that - perhaps they did play Please Call Home a few times at subsequent Beacon runs with horn sections sitting in, but not certain about that. Both songs should come back into the setlist, if you ask me though.

Yeah I wish they'd play both High Falls and Please Call Home more often.

15 Times total for this line up

2001, 2002, 2003 & 2005

Only listed on one setlist for the orginal on 10/06/71
Interesting that it showed up on a set list in late 71 just before Duane died but it doesn't show up on any earlier ones. Though there are no tapes it could be a mistake. Iam curious.

I was lucky enough to catch it on St. Patty's Day '05 but it was just Gregg I think

They also played it in 2006 at least once because I was definitely there to witness it. I was in the 2nd row at The Beacon with Rob (Merlin) on March 23. This one had the horn section too which sounded soooo sweet!

Check out the cool song selection for the first set of this show! A powerful "Les Brers" opener, a stand-alone "Franklins Tower", An electric "Come On In My Kitchen", a bone-chilling "Dreams To Remember" with horns, and to top it all off a "Layla" first set closer! That's the only time they have ever played "Layla" in that spot - usually its an encore. That, my friends is the way it's done! Only this lineup could pull that off...you could take it to the bank.

Well, I also think that maybe they meant it was "filler" compared to the rest, which isn't really an insult. The "filler" from the first 4 albums would make a better album than most people's greatest albums! Seriously.

Yeah, I saw "Please Call Home" a couple times early on in this lineup 2001-2002. They were playing some really cool songs from their back catalog in the first couple years with Warren back from "Please Call Home, "All Night Train", "High Falls", "Loaded Dice". In 2004 they even played "Need Your Love So Bad" (which yes, is a cover, but you know what I mean). I'd like to see everything this lineup has ever played (and more) in rotation, even if it's light rotation. It would be such an amazing mix of songs...

Oh yeah, I was at Warren's first show back at the Beacon 3-15-01 and it remains the only time they have played "What's Done is Done", which is a shame, because it's a killer tune that is a really great vehicle for this lineup....
