My favourite show so far has been with Bonnie Bramlett & John Hammond, man its a smoking show.

This looks like it will give that one a run for its money though (slight run perhaps), I imagine it'll be available later today too, since the same taper has upped 3/9,10,12 13,14,16 & 17 so far and they've all sounded great.

Derek Trucks more than holds his own between those two. His playing has just got better and better over the years and at this years shows he is demonstrating some incredible development as a player. I watched all of last nights show (03/20/09) on Moogis and Clapton sat in again and played exactly the same songs except Anyday, but they added Stormy Monday and In Memory of Elizabeth Reed which kicked ass. Clapton actually missed a few lines of Liz Reed and was laughing at himself and sharing a moment with Derek about during Warren's solo.

A great show among the many so far.

Monday was wicked, I didn't feel like John Hammond worked very well, just a "not quite gelled feeling". Bonnie Bramlett and her daughter however, were awesome and brought some great energy and life to the band. Ditto Susan Tedeski joining everybody on stage for The Weight.

I might write a short review of the show (03/16/09)...the beacon does look amazing but it was always a very nice theatre.

Anyway, upcoming shows I want to catch are 03/24/09, Gibbons, Landreth guesting, and 03/26/09 - the actual 40th anniversary show. No guests have been booked and the offer that was extended to Dickey to sit in was possibly confirmed. After a Great Southern show on March 12th, Dickey was asked by his guitar tech (or roadie) in front of fans whether he will be appearing at the Beacon on the anniversary. His reply.....

"I reckon."

Dickey sure does look different these days;

Kidding aside, this run at the Beacon has looked fantastic. The clips that are being posted are a ton of fun to watch. I look forward to seeing some more of them as they are released as full shows. I hope Dickey does come back to play with them. ABB shows have always been a blast for me over the years. Anyone else here see the ABB at Darien when it was the OLD little shed in the campground there? Hot Tuna opened for them. It was killer. (late 80s i think)

Derek changes his style when he plays with the Allmans. He conforms because he has to (he's said it in interviews), given the historic importance of the band and that their older classics shouldn't be altered or experimented with too much. Derek is still at his best and most innovative when he's with his own band. Still, Trucks "more than holds his own" with one of the great white blues guitarists is high praise indeed.

I'm not sure what you meant by that. Watching the two side by side, trading solos, it seemed obvious to me that Derek Trucks has become one of the better guitarists playing the instrument today. On par with his elder contemporaries, those on the stage at the time, and others.

offer eh?

obvs dickey would love to play with those guys' date=' i just can't see them making any such offer to him.

is this real info or just from hopeful blurbs in articles?[/quote']

during an interview with Hittin' the Note magazine, Butch Trucks confirmed an offer to play March 26th was extended to Dickey. As of the beginning of the run, they had not heard back from him.

Personally, I will be watching March 26th and will be happy to see his return (for the night).

I've downloaded all the available live recordings I could find (posted above) and have watched the youtube videos and I must say Derek's playing is amazing in my opinion, the stuff with Clapton is great.

I'd freakin' love to see Dickey make an appearence. If I were a gamblin' man, I'd bet final show, epic second set jams. Man, aside from actually being there, I can't think of anything better after whats gone down so far.

ps. I haven't heard the "co-headliner" part...

the word is that it would work something like the ABB/Phil tour of '02...wow was it that long ago???...we saw mule and ABB "open" for phil at deer creek and then it was flipped for the detroit show and back again for cleveland with DTB instead of mule
