Just looking for your opinions on how the latest live album stands up against the three listed: LAFE, 1st Set, and 2nd Set, & Atlanta Pop... And I can't say how I rate the new one, because I haven't heard everything yet. And I had a heck of a time deciding between those two 90's releases the last time someone did a post like that, took me weeks....

So, my answer is I'm not sure.......

Next..?

I think my order would be LAFE, One Way Out, 2nd Set, 1st Set. I would take One Way Out over the 90's stuff because, a, there are no throw away songs on the discs like Revival or Midnight Blues, and b, it recreates the atmosphere of a complete show, rather than just a composite of some of the highlights of the setlist. I'd take 2nd set over 1st set because of BWIAB, Jessica, and the accoustic Liz Reed. LAFE trumps them all though.

I'd take "Live at Fillmore East" 1st.(Actually "The Fillmore Concerts")

Then "One Way Out". I think "One Way Out" is that good.

After that the other 3 are tied for 3rd!

Hey - you're cheating: what about Live at Ludlow Garage, American University, Stony Brook and Wipe The Windows?

Let's make it a proper contest!

Lets face it, they are all come 1st ( including LALG, AU, SB and WTWCTODG) for one reason or another. As I have said in a previous thread, ONE WAY OUT is the best (non-archive) live album I have heard in twenty years, along with LIVE WITH A LITTLE HELP OUR FRIENDS coming a close second.

I think the combined 1st Set/2nd Set beats One Way Out. I happen to prefer the Dickey/Warren era, as well as the song selection. Nothing on One Way Out compares to the 1st Set versions of Nobody Knows or Blue Sky. I also prefer the version of Dreams on 1st Set.

Paul, I wouldn't include Stonybrook or American b/c you wouldn't find those in a record store. At least, I think that's what Rust1 was implying by this thread.

I am always amazed that some people like the version of Dreams on First Set so much. Warren's solo is too shrill for my ears, I like his recent Dreams solos much better.

That said, here's my order

Fillmore East
Stonybrook (if that counts)
One Way Out
Ludlow Garage (mainly for Mountain Jam and Outskirts)
Second Set
First Set (Nobody Knows is awesome, but overall Second Set is better. See Dreams comment)

And I then went on to miss out Peakin' At The Beacon! Shame on me!

Paul. I think you missed that particular disaster out on purpose. Even Wishbone Ash woulda gave us a run on that show:-)

Personally -- although I know this will be a controversial opinion -- I prefer Atlanta Pop to LAFE.

1. It has Dreams
2. It has the extended Statesboro Blues
3. I was there
4. I've heard it a lot less often.

I'm still absorbing OWO -- but it's awesome!

None of the new live albums stand up to FE. Most people cut thier teeth on FE and rock critics and fans (who know something about music) will say the FE may be the greatest live album of all time. Those performaces are caught once in a lifetime. The sound was great the performaces were perfect, what more could you want other than to be there the night it was recorded and be the guy who yells.....'play all night' or 'Whiping Post' and have Duane say back to you 'I guess you guessed it'

Where's the love for Midnight Blues? Nothing wrong with coming down from the Les Paul assault......

Anyway, yeah, I was meaning just the studio 'official' releases, but if you want to include the archive releases, that's cool too.

I think bluesboy is the only one that rated the 90's stuff over OWO. That's interesting. Like I said I'm not sure yet, but what I will say is that I think i'm starting to appreciate this lineup more and more. Initially I was more into the 90's, and while I thought this lineup was excellent, I wasn't totally convinced. But the more I listen to the current stuff, the playing just sounds so solid...and on H.T.N. there really aren't any throwaways. And on those 90's albums the stuff is really strong but I guess I am ready to admit that there may be a weak(er) song here and there...(although the strong ones are incredible)
