Wasn’t show. But do have the IL. Sweet. MUCH better song selection than the next night in Raleigh. Playing loud now.

Karl Denson played flute, not sax, on Desdemona.

Really hoping to get a CDR of this show. I have the Raleigh show from the next night that I could trade.

Though the multi-talented Mr. Denson plays a mean saxophone it sure looked and sounded like a flute he was playing in “Desdemona.” If you change it here be sure to tell they have it as sax, too.

Yes, they are. Saw them open at Holmdel, NJ 8-6 and also guest with ABB on some tunes. They were awesome. I hope some taper out there at one of these shows taped them too. Anyone?

Awesome show. My man Clem and I were in High Point for the Oak Hollow Open disc golf tournament and had nothing to do Saturday night between rounds, so we hit 85 and 1 hour later we were in the lot. Scored front section seats from the friendly local scalper for $40 a pop, and what a deal it was. Some highlights for me was hearing a “Warren” Statesboro Blues, Karl Denson totally going nuts on a flute during Desdemona, Warren doing Patchwork Quilt, the awesome new arrangement of Good Morning Lil Schoolgirl, Mountain Jam is always a treat, and I finally got to hear the boys do Layla in person. I knew it was coming too, I had a feeling. And by the way, Warren is the man, as he poured it out for his home crowd in Charlotte. Gregg, Derek, Oteil, Butch, Jaimoe, and Marc sounded great as well. Thank you guys!

Well, according to my wife, you weren’t the only drunk guy.

by the way, this was close to my fortieth show. I have seen them with every guitarist except duane. I have also seen buddy guy, trey, Houser, BB King, ZZ Top, and basically anybody else you can think of, and I have never been as charged to see two guys play as Derek and Warren. Then figure in the greatest B3 player of all time, a trio of drummers, and a ball of thunder on bass…. a 40 minute mountain jam (with Liz reed teases), Karl Denson, a jerry Tribute and the smokinest cover of layla in history…. WOW.

I think I might have been “the drunk guy” in that line. I hate that guy, but he sure had fun in Charlotte Saturday. Well worth the drive from Kentucky. Can anyone tell me who played the first solo on Layla. With both Derek and Warren playing gibson’s I really can’t tell, and unfortunately there is some Coors light blocking my memory of the visual.

The boys kicked ass again. Derek Trucks continues to prove that he is a force. Gregg never sounded stronger. Warren is Warren. I just love Jaimoe, Butch and Marc. I don’t know man but Jaimoe is awesome. Butch is a monster. Oteil thank you for the bottom end.

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe opened for the Allman Brothers Sat nite in Charlotte. I was late getting to the show and missed them, but they are awesome, aren’t they?

The performance was nothing short of inspirational. Incredible musicians sending out music headed for the soul.
It would be great if I could buy this performance on CD. Please contact me. Thanks.

I haven’t had the time to listen to my CD yet. That issue with Mtn. Jam is very disappointing to hear. That was an outstanding part of an outstanding show. That deal outside where you claimed the CD was really f**ked up. I bought my voucher before the show – went early so that I could find the booth, and then all those people who didn’t have vouchers were out there in line. I’m sure that they will fine tune it.

I wish I had a recording of all the shows I have seen over the last 28 years… Some good, some not so good.

We were at the show in Charlotte and really liked the opening act on the main stage. Can anyone tell me who that was? Thanks

Hello Peachheads,
I was at the show last night, Derek was really hitting it. The band themselves seemed to have a good night. I get one show a year and this was a good one. I also bought the Instant Live, I recommend this anyone, it is agreat SDBD recording that is flawless as far as quality. The only part I did not like about was for those there was the line was not very well thought out. As far as the CD themselves go the band played a 40 Min Mtn. Jam that is cut in half from the 2nd to 3rd disc really messing up how good it really was, but other than it was a great show
