Why don't they sell them?

most likely their record company only wants them to sell their current CD. They probably have a clause in their record contract prohibiting it

Plus, there does not seem to be a lot of difference from show to show, not much stretching out......

Same reason that the DTB never sold them.

I would think that them being so new still that they would have to wait another tour or two before they would start selling every show the way Gov't Mule do. They need to add to their catalog both in original music as well as covers. Right now the set lists don't vary enough to sell every show.

There are both pros and cons to getting a "big record deal" with a "major label."

When Columbia signed Derek a decade or so ago, what I've heard is that it was in many ways one of the last of the old-school big time record deals.

The good news? Derek got paid in an industry where it is harder and harder for up and coming musicians to land that kind of deal.

The bad news? Most of the people who actually signed Derek are now gone, and he and his management have to deal with the suits at Sony/Columbia, and pretty much have to play by their rules. Those rules apparently don't include selling live shows, except for the occasional "offical live album."

If I recall correctly, Derek "owes" them one more album, maybe two at the most. Once that contract is fulfilled, it will be interesting to see whether Derek is in a hurry to sign with another big label. I can see him just wanting to record at his home studio, start his own label, and do whatever he wants without anybody telling him what he can and can't do.

I have come to the conclusion that without us all debating the TTB or a new ABB album, this forum would barely have posts anymore. One day last week this forum had under 20 posts in the Anything Goes and they were from a handful of us. Sad considering you used to have the search 3 pages of topics in a day. Now there are days where only a few new threads appear. We went by the Anniversary of Jimi's death without a notice by anyone.

Now back to 50 Shades of the TTB.

I'm going to see all 3 TTB Beacon shows!! A different good opener every night for starters will be a treat. The shows will be great they will be pumped for a 3 show sold out run.

I have heard they will be introducing new songs maybe just a rumor but that would be great.

I think they have more songs in their repertoire than they usually play and this is a chance for them to pull some new stuff or new covers out of their hat!

We won't get ABB variation in the setlists but I don't care. I love this band and Derek and Susan are both happy in it. I know there are detractors and I respect and admire their opinions.

I'm just happy to see Derek again for 3 nights

I had 6 ABB shows this March and only got to see the opening 2 nights.

I then got very sick with a bad flu that turned into pneumonia and had me in the hospital ICU for 10 days until March 26. I was on disability and ended up missing 5 weeks of work.

I did manage to get the 2 closing night shows to my buddy when he visited me in the hospital. My sister and best friend got the tix from my ticket basket and brought them to the hospital.

I'm glad those didn't go to waste.

I'm looking forward to seeing TTB again! It's a treat for me to see Derek anytime and I love Susan too and the whole vibe of the band.

peace,
Ray,
Northernman

Interesting about the contract. I like the idea of Derek completely unfettered.

"Funny" coincidence (actually more sad than funny). I was drawing that same conclusion this week.
And wanted to post about that subject. Maybe not while reading this topic but while scrolling down the "anything goes" section. Traffic on this site has been poorly in recent times but now i think it hit an all time low. For example the recent posting of some quality footage of the ABB at the Atlanta Pop Festival would have generated a whole lot of replies only a few years ago. I made some posts on the subject a few months ago. But nowadays it's even quieter then back then.
Somebody stated that more and more people spend a lot of their time online on social networks
like facebook in stead of "old school" website forums. Or maybe it's due to lack of new content and interesting topics. Sad .

we can always start a thread about Butch or Dickey - that would stir things up for a little while

I was staying current although the way the forum moves now topics from 3 months ago are on page 2.

Over on the Whipping Posts our US brothers/sisters kick each others asses daily with some days having 4-5 times the number of posts ompared to Anything Goes.

What we need is for the politicians to join the TTB and produce the new ABB album. Now which side will do what?

Unlike ABB, DTB and TTB live recordings are readily available for trade without having the annoying vine and B&P. SO they don't need to 'sell' soundboards WOW!!! I don't understand the comments about Derek getting to record what he wants, he just already did that with Revelator - if you see the videos, that's what he says. For the people who say there's not much variety in TTB shows, wow< I say the same thing about ABB shows. GA band too. Just sayin'.

Again there are a legion of frustrated guitarist who live their guitar solo fantasy through Derek. Since they will never in their life get the opportunity to play an extended solo that lifts the roof off the place with 5000 screaming fans they can't wrap their brains around just enjoying playing a song.....

Totally true. It is a way around the label for fans and the labels let it go with certain bands as it is a form of free promotion and aids with sales of official releases.

But if they were away from the major labels, they will start selling the shows in a flash. Govt Mule makes far more from that than releases. Shocking how low the Mule's sales are considering how good they are. But the faithful step up for the shows. Derek will follow that example.

Until then plenty to get from an already long career with plenty more to come. Gotta Love the tapers and bands that let them.

With regard to selling SBD's, the band would LOVE to sell them if they could. It's a great source of revenue, as CM pointed out. Even with similar setlists, as a band changes and grows, it's very interesting to hear the progress and growth. For some folks, Dreams is Dreams, no matter what version of the band. For others, self included Dreams from the Duane era is completely different than Dreams with Jack, or the current band.

It's also great to have a copy of a show you have attended.

An AUD recording is rarely going to approach the quality of a multi-track recording made by the band, so I bet there is a lot of pent-up demand for TTB SBDs.

I also think you mis-interpreted Rob's comment about Derek being free from interference from the label. Remember, Rob has been supportive of where Derek is going with the TTB. While Sony may give him plenty of freedom, you can be sure they impose some degree of influence over Derek, and he was merely saying he would like to see what Derek does when he has no one to answer to.

If you look at the setlists over time, there is plenty of variety in the TTB... their current rotation includes only a few of the songs from when they started out. To make it clear, that's a compliment, not a criticism.
