Never less than AMAZED!!! 7/13/03 Great Woods
What 2 say about this show. 14th ABB show 'since '89. No novice...knowledgeble fan. SEE THIS BAND!!!! First show I've seen w/o DB ( his loss). This line-up is as good as any the ABB has used. Many, many highlights. Sound got better as night wore on ( it usually does ). Layla to open...words cannot describe...special place in my heart for that whole album...been in similar situation to EC, helped me thru it. Into the Mystic...my favorite Van Morrison song, done as only the ABB could do it. Done right. Soulful, with TONS of feeling, Warren's singing and Derek's echoing of horn parts was astounding. Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl...ever so slowly taken to a different place and brought to a frenzy, the dropped off the cliff back into the original, slow, slinky groove. WOW,WOW,WOW!!!!! Insrumental Illness...funky, like a swing #, guitars sounding like horns in a swing band.
As usual, the ABB proves that they are THE BEST LIVE OUTFIT IN THE WORLD, BAR NONE!!!!!----->Jay E.
