Gave this a spin again today.

I like this album. Not as much as "Back Where it all Begins" but still it's a very good listen.

'End of the Line' - Very cool opener to the album. Actually heard this on the radio
before the album came out. Knew I had to have it.

'Bad Rain' - OK song. Wouldn't consider it filler, but it is kind of forgettable.

'Nobody Knows' - this songs still WOWS me every time I hear it. Glad I got to see
them play this live back in the early 90's. Still pretty cool. Think i'll listen to this track
again now ...

'Desert Blues' - after listening to the first line of this song, I still have no clue what the
hell he's talking about. The rest of the song is just OK. I consider this track the filler
of the album.

'Midnight Man' - Not bad. Pretty interesting music. Has the recognizable ABB, or
should I say Betts, footprint. Nice set up for the next track.

'Kind of Bird' - One of the more kick ass instrumentals. Probably had something to
do with Haynes co-writing it. Glad I got see them play this live a few times back in the
early 90's also. Now it seems to be more of a Gov't Mule staple than ABB. Not complaing
since it still gets dusted off now.

'Come on in my Kitchen' - some Robert Johnson. Ahh. This was a nice edition.
Paved the way for some acoustic sets in '92 and '93. Figured it was Dickey doing the
acoustic bottleneck but I'm sure Warren might have thrown something in there.


I think it is criminal that this album is out of print. New fans need to hear this and be
exposed to this era of the band.

Serious ? Can't get no this and can't get no that....

booze, women and smoke are tabu.
Its from a soldiers point of view during the 1st Gulf War.
I love the song. Dickey wrote this song with quite a bit of humor in it.

Love this entire LP and the tour that followed was out of sight.

If I'd written a review of Shades , it would have read exactly like yours . I think it gets overlooked ... a very solid album .

I had my 1st copy vanish up in KC.
I was able to pick up on a new one down here in Texas a few years back.
After I paid my $4.99 plus tax and had it bagged with receipt, I told the store owner...man I'm so lucky this has been out of print for a few years. heh heh. His face went kinda stone after that.

AMEN

This is my favorite "90's ABB" album
I think it was in the freeman book, but someone said 'nobody knows' is probably the best studio track since whippin post or somethin like that...I agree wholeheartedly. That song just KICKS A S S. Talk about some classic dickey & warren moments. Wasnt that wen dickey was playin the PRS? Man, whatever it is, is sounds freakin SWEET. That live version of 'an evening with' is just as good too...what a great song!

"Shades of Two Worlds"

"Seven Turns"

"Back where it all begins"


ONE FANTASTIC album/CD could be made out of the best material from these three releases..

LOTS of filler.

Ya, I was living in Chicago at that time and saw them there.

No A/C? Nothing beats 7/12/2004 at the Uptown. Gregg clocked in at 5 shirts. I thought Warren was going to fall over. We all had to take breaks and I listened to half the show from the lobby. The heat in the balcony was torturous.

Anyone know the story of why Gregg didn't want to sing Nobody Knows anymore ? Dickey sang it at the beacon in 97 and mentioned that Gregg didn't want to sing it so he would. Gregg sounds great on the Studio version.

Great song but I never liked it as encore when they would play it at the end of a show.

Dickey still does an amazing version with Great Southern.

I always thought Desert Blues was a great tribute to the Gulf War vets. No political stuff or feeling bad for them or Ted Nugent " lets kick their ass! " stuff. It's just about the troops being out there and missing home and all the fun they had before being out in the desert.

Kind of Bird and Come on in my Kitchen are probably my favs from this record.

June 2002. My first meet & greet with anyone from the sight. Lana, Easy Michael, Stormy and KC Jimmy.

Yes, DTB opened. A great night of music. I was third row dead center.

Great show. A group of about a dozen of us were there, floor...very back row under the balcony. Great show. Sounded great there too.

New Earth Mud opener . Kinda enjoyed them.

I absolutely love this album. It more than fulfilled the promise of Seven Turns (one of the best "come back" albums ever). I'm surprised when people say there's a lot of filler on the 90's albums. There's a variety of styles, strengths and weaknesses but I think of filler as half-assed, half-hearted stuff like "Louisiana Lou", and I don't hear any of that. "End Of the Line" & "Nobody Knows" are absolute barn burners. Warren's slide solo in End Of the Line is a song in itself and send chills down my spine. "Desert Blues" is good fun - "Papa George callin'..."; "Midnight Man" has some monster bass lines in it and Gregg's singing is very convincing given the subject matter. "Bad Rain" has the funky syncopated chords. There's good stuff in every song on there and to cap it off with a gospel rendition of a song about fornicating is just magical.

Smacking myself in the head.

Forgot to list 'Get on with your Life'

Gregg's slow blues that was another highlight on that tour.

Nobody Knows and Get On With Your Life are the monster tunes on Evening With...never far from my CD player. Some of their best work live since AFE and nice to see Mr.Dowd's hand in there too.
