Listening to this show today at work, wow, Dickey's band was at it's peak during the 2002 run, opening for Phil & Friends at Lakewood, this is a great quality recording, High Falls, Immortal, Ramblin' Man, Come Into My Kitchen, Back Where It All begins, Nobody To Run With and closing it out with Jessica. Then he goes back on stage to sing/play Blue Sky with Phil, Warren and Friends. Love the sax from Kris and Dave's driving bass along with Dan Toler matching leads with Dickey. This was the lineup that brought out the best in Dickey after he left the ABB. Too bad this is not his lineup now, they don't seem to push him as much as this lineup. Anyone else love this show as much as I do?

It is a good one. Always enjoy High Falls.

I liked that lineup too, but I'll take what I can get!!

Don't have the GS show from this date, but the Phil & Friends show is real nice -- good versions of all the songs, esp the Workingman Dead ones they performed, & of course Blue Sky

Wayne, DB & GS is one tight tight band -- saw them just the other night, and smokin -- have been listening to almost all DB since -- I know what you're saying, their five-man show from March 2004 Falls Church Va is Sweet -- that was a dynamite band indeed -- and so is this one. Even in the freezing cold Dickey was enjoying himself at Cannon & keeping the band into it with his playing & energy

I agree totally. If you listen to that period, it is incredible. They put out Collector's #1, which in my opinion is a total masterpiece, Dickey was writing great new songs, they were jamming. Dickey was playing lots of slide too, and I love Dickey's slide. They were playing acoustic sets. Dickey hit his post abb peak there, I believe. Don't get me wrong, I have some great stuff from the new lineup, but I think DDT is in a separate league than Andy and Duane.

I was at this show - great day of music. DB&GS, followed by Ratdog (Dickey on "Little Red Rooster"), with PL&F closing. The "Blue Sky" with Dickey, Jimmy Herring, and Warren was off the chain.

I was lucky enough to be hanging with Dickey at this show and it was a good one. Sure loved that band. The Blue Sky that night was super high energy, as Jimmy and Warren and Dickey were on stage together for the first time in Atlanta. Easy Michael and Lana were also there.

DDT is one of the best players I have ever seen, period. Add Kris Jensen, Dave Stoltz, and Matt amd Mark Greenberg, lordy. Loved seeing that lineup!

Your right David, that was one tight band, one of the few bands I would pay to see again. Wish they were still together. Think I will play that show again today.
