Re: What's Everyone Listening to?

My basement flooded a few days ago from tropical storm isiasias (sp?) which has made for a really sucky week. But on the bright side, the hours of cleanup have provided an opportunity to listen to these 3 shows all in a row and in their entirety: Sorry to hear that, Clams. Was keeping an eye on tha...

They were clearly intended to show Ally losing her soul to the pop star machine but that can work whether or not the songs were as bad as I thought they were a...

Re: 50 best live records of all time

that Live at Raji's was my introduction to the band. great record. It was one of my first ones as well. I got into Steve Wynn first around the time he went solo and then DS sort of backwards. He used to tour Norway quite frequently back then (still does) so was very “accessible” for an American “un...

Re: 50 best live records of all time

The one released by Hiss Golden Messenger a couple of months ago would be on my top 5 live albums list.

Re: Newbies--Introduce yourselves

I am not exactly a newbie, but I feel like one because I never really settled down here. Showed up and then migrated to Facebook. And now I am done with FB and have returned to where the pure of heart live. So, hey everyone! I have only been aware of DBT for a comparably short period of time--maybe...

Re: 2020 Tour Dates! THERE ARE SO MANY

It’s 2 weeks until DBT is supposed to play Dublin. The European tour is clearly not happening in June but tickets are still on sale for many shows. They are supposed to be in Germany on June 10 but Patterson is doing a live stream from his home that night. I hope we learn soon if the European tour ...

I made the same observation. I think it fits well with the overall late 70's early 80's vibe of the production.

I have to say much better than I expected. The beginning of Running With Our Eyes Closed has I’m No Angel by Greg Allman oozing out of it.
I have been kinda luke warm to Isbell's last couple of albums. But this one sounds pretty good. Really liking the production.
