This is a shootoff thread from another recent one about the Arista Years.

In the midst of that thread "Instrumental Illness" came up and I was surprised to see so many people slam it and say they dont like it at all.

I think Instrumental Illness is great. I love it when it comes up on One Way Out.

I agree that it doesnt sound like Dickey's classic instrumentals, but then....it wasnt composed by Dickey.

Does everyone dislike it? Am I the only one who likes it?

I like it , but it ain't a Dickey instrumental.
Dickey had a real gift for writing and arranging his instrumentals.
It would have been really interesting to see where it would have gone with Dickey co-composing.

I like Instrumental Illness a lot. I also wish they'd record a proper studio version of Oteil's other
great instrumental, Egypt.

It doesn't sound like the Allman Brothers Band. Sounds more like a Robben Ford/Larry Carlton workout. Nothing wrong with that, a compliment actually... just that I remember when the ABB sounded like the ABB...that signature feeling is not here....

Nothing wrong with it. Like it a lot. Maybe not as much as IMOER, Jessica and other Dickey Betts classic instrumentals but it sounds great.

you have to listen to it more to appreciate it I used to think the same thing as werner
the ABB used to play it for 20 minutes at a time,which is too long but the other night I watched it on the 2003 beacon dvd and found it be more interesting they still could do a lot of experimenting with it.

There's no melody. It's what I call a show-off song, in that it seems to exist to show "look at how we can do jazz!"

Really, though, it's not pleasant on the ears. It lacks a central melody.

Just a personal taste deal. I just don't really think it ever...goes anywhere.

I love the way it starts off with the low rumble of the bass. It gets me interested every time. I, too, was surprised to see it slammed by several people.

I think Illness is one of the better songs on the album, without Dickey on the album I found it funny that they included an instrumental. Hey life goes on...

Gov't Mule, DTB, Frogwings, Gregg Allman Band, Oteil, ARU, and Spyro Gyra have all done instrumentals. Dickey was not the only one in to them, and Warren co-wrote a few with Dickey also, like True Gravity and Kind Of Bird.

I like it -- like JJ's Alley, Egypt IMO should stay out of the studio -- they did it differently onstage in 2005, that's kinda the treat of it -- a real stage song

I like it with Denson on sax far better than without. IMO it's ok but doesn't measure up to the other instrumentals and when I hear it starting at a show I can't help but thinking "this could be IMOER or Jessica or Mtn Jam or ......"

The Brothers must have thought that too, they haven't played it in ages (doesn't seem like anyway), Jessica & IMOER are still regulars though

I like it. Warren wrote some great instrumentals, Trane, Birth of the Mule, Sco-Mule etc.
