This DMBLive from Philadelphia’s First Union Center in 1998 comes from one of the most popular tours in DMB history. The show features all founding members and Tim Reynolds, plus Butch Taylor on keys for all but 5 songs. And Bela Fleck sits in on the killer set opener Last Stop, as well as other songs throughout the show, including a nearly 15 minute Two Step with Bela and Tim masterfully trading licks. Stay (Wasting Time) features LeRoi’s powerful horn -- busting through near the end of this tune to take it home. I’ll Back You Up and a fantastic Warehouse seal the deal in the encore.
This particular Fall 1998 performance only exists as a two track board mix, but the musical prowess and energy of the evening still shine through. A great sound has been captured. Even 17 years after the last notes of the tour, it’s still one for the books.
