Crazy Love
JJ's Alley
Rave On
Shady Streets

These songs could have been put on there to keep the set list more varied.

Dickey was just horrible on "Peakin." It wouldn't have mattered what they played song-wise. It is the only commercially released live ABB that I don't own.

I think PEAKIN' AT THE BEACON's strong suit is it's set list, especially after the unimaginative setlist of 2nd Set which was comprised of 4 cuts from their last studio album. Most of those tunes on Peakin' hadn't appeared on an ABB live album in years, I was really excited about the "Don't Want You No More/Cross to Bear/Ain't Wastin' time" opener, which I think still holds up until the end of the "Time" when Dickey goes off in his own little world during his solo. Not to mention, "High Falls" and "Please Call Home" were welcome additions. Unfortunately, sound quality and performance didn't live up to the ABB live album standard, but I listen to it a lot more than the safe set list of One Way Out, which didn't seem to have much thought put into it.

While I've never heard "Crazy Love" from the 2000 Beacon run, I think it's best that "Shady Streets" never appeared on an ABB album.

Maybe if they did it all over.......

Have not played mine much since the week I got it.

The band sounds tired to me.

or maybe I was tired.

I'm afraid Shady Streets and Crazy Love would have made Peakin' worse. Those songs were not exactly the ABB at it's tightest in 2000.

Actually, including some Jack P from the 1998 run would have helped. They did a great, great version of HideAway and High Falls in 1998. More crisp than the High Falls a year later. Letting Capt Skip mix the album wouldn't have been a bad idea either...
