listened to it on XM. Great show. Other than the Dire Wolf, Bobby's Tin Can guitar playing on Into The Mystic, Phil singing eyes, the draged on Space, Bobby singing Days between, and the lack-luster Saturday Night, it was a verry impressive. And Musically the Eyes and Days Between were fantastic. Loose Lucy sounded Great. Passenger>Bucket was sick. And the Box Of Rain was beautiful with warren singing harmony at the end.
Very insightful, especially for not ever being there! I echo TS, in that the Althea had too much on it from Warren, the Eyes and Passenger/Bucket were a highlight. I also thought Into the Mystic was great.
The interesting thing for me was that the music started at 3:30 and so did the partying and by the drums, we were pretty much out of beer, they stopped vending it, and the boys seemed to slow way down. The Days was good, but Warren should sing it, and it should be followed by something to really get us going. Sat Night wasn't enough to really pull those of us back who were starting to come down and the Box, while sweet, was somewhat of a let down after hearing about such great encores at Shoreline.
I was also disappointed that they didn't invite the ABB out to jam! At the Beacon, Phil and Bobby sat in and from what I heard, it went well. I took some good photos of Warren and Derek was standing right behind him watching. I thought for sure they'd jam at some point, especially when the ABB did The Other One, or Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, but it never happened. But all in all, it was incredible and I'm glad it was the last show, because after seeing it, I would have totally gone back on tour!! They were making it fun again!
