Podcast #60: Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds (w/ Bob Weir and Carlos Santana) - San Rafael, CA - 3/14/99
I want to start the show by wishing everyone an early Happy Valentine’s Day or a late one depending on when you download this. Also I’d like to let my listeners know that I have noticed less downloads of the App bonus content than I would have expected. If you have purchased the App and need help accessing the bonus section please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for your downloads and support.
This past Tuesday was the release of the new Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds concert album “Live In Las Vegas”. This album includes the music from night three of Dave & Tim’s Las Vegas trilogy last December and I highly recommend picking up a copy of it. Partly due to this release, I thought the timing was perfect to finally podcast what I consider to be the finest live acoustic set ever captured by a taper. I played a Dave & Tim recording on the very first episode of this podcast and you don’t know how close I was to using this one instead of the 2006 Vegas show. Picking a Dave & Tim recording is extremely difficult because there are so many flat out amazing ones in circulation. So you might be asking yourself what makes this one so special. Audio quality is pretty much a given so lets just skip that. Next up is a passionate performance and excellent song selection…check and check. Finally you need something extra unique to make it stand out from the rest. Do special guests the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Carlos frickin’ Santana do it for you? I’d wager most of you will be in the hell ya category. Just a quick note before I get into it; you might notice a lot more space between the songs than I normally leave. This was done intentionally to highlight the often hilarious banter that comes out of Dave’s mouth, lovingly referred to as ‘Dave Speak’. Please enjoy Dave, Tim, and their guests from the March 14, 1999 performance in San Rafael, California.
