    I think i pretty much was able to catch most of it, i was pretty impressed they have a great connection live and i always thought their music has a very organic kind of feel to it. I am sure it will be re running in the next few days if you missed it.

    I watched some of it. I was impressed w/ the recording. You could hear all the parts really well. They also managed to show more than one band member which was also nice. Good show.

    I saw pretty much the whole thing. I thought it was pretty good and I'm not necessarily a huge fan of theirs. It's not that I don't like them, I've just never really been "drawn" by them. But, the show last night was good enough that I may pay a bit more attention to them and pick up some more of their recordings. I'd recommend catching a rerun of it if you didn't see it. ;)

    Oh no! I missed it!! I'll definetly watch for it... I really enjoy watching them live.
    If you want to hear them at their best, go for their live stuff. So much more enjoyable than their recorded stuff, imo. Very tight band. Carter B. is a monster.
     
  6. No doubt their live stuff rules. Probly the best recorded live CD I've ever heard was their Central Park Concert. Very awesome 3 disc set. If youre looking for a first DMB Cd, pick up Central Park.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I might check it out. I really really don't enjoy their CD stuff, but from any live thing I've heard, they're ten times better. And the bass lines are very nice.

    I wouldn't suggest a live DMB cd first. The 1/2 hour jams might turn someone off that wasn't used to the tunes to begin with. I think Under The Table & Dreaming or Crash would be a good start.

    Actually the first DMB CD I bought was the Central Park Concert and it was amazing.
    Although I had heard a few of the tracks from the regular CDs first I was impressed by everything on the live CD.
     
  13. Well, I love it all. According to iTunes, I have 329 DMB songs. So I guess Im kind of addicted, you could say.

  15. I've been a fan since the mid 90's. I eally love this band. I get so much crap from friends about it too. Hey they play good music, and thier own instruments, wow!!!!!!! Anyways, I missed that show too becasue I had to play that night downtown. I don't have one of them fancy VCR things, so I could't tape it. I know i have friends who did though. Anyways, i hear some people likede the new album. I'd like to know what part. Because that is thier worst cd. Tried listening to it many times, gave it many chances, but still yeah not working. And this is also the opinion of alot of people. Hello again was awesome live though. IMO Before these Crowded streets was thier best.
