  • Allmän Betts Band/ Tab Benoit/ Samantha Fish

    Allman Betts, Tab Benoit and Samantha Fish at The Fillmore in NOLA on October 8! Tickets on sell April 30 (I think, better check). Don't know how much yet. Bet it's a bunch. Great lineup, but I wish it were outside and that I could go.

    Interesting pronunciation of Allman. Don't know where that came from.

        So they are gonna try this same lineup again. I had tix but got a refund. I guess I'll re-buy(is that a word?) some tix.

          It looks like plenty of people held onto their tickets; logged in at 10:00 for the presale and there weren't two seats together in the entire seated area (too damn old to stand for hours on end, especially after a day at the Fairgrounds). Oh well....

                I saw them at The HOB when they first came out and they were surprisingly very good although they played mostly old songs. That last album which they said they worked so hard on was not very good to say the least. They can play well but cannot seem to write any very good songs plus Devon is not all that great a singer.

                  I quite enjoyed them at CCBBQ a few years ago. Devon has written some good songs for his own solo albums and I love his voice. Yeah, they, like TTB and others, do a lot of covers, but they breathe new life into them and do some impressive jamming. Their take on Tom Petty's "Southern Accents" is pretty much a straight copy (Devon has a richer voice than Tom's) but it works and moves me.

                    I enjoyed them at the Square, as well, more than I thought I would. I thought they did a good job mixing well played versions of ABB tunes with their own.

                      They were doing that great RSB tune "Left My Heart in Memphis" but dropped it from their sets after that first tour. Not sure why. Most of the covers they did when I saw them were ABB songs which they played well. Not into their covers of "Purple Rain" or "Shakedown Street".

                        I'm not into anyone's coverage of those tunes nor am I too fond of the originals. Prince and The Dead both did far better tunes than those.

                          I cringe whenever I hear anyone cover Purple Rain although it was cool hearing Springsteen play it live the day after Prince, my favorite alltime artist passed. He also played Rebel Rebel when Bowie passed. Clapton does a really lame version of Purple Rain. It's not like Prince doesn't have any other good songs to cover.

                          When The Dead put out "Shakedown Street" I started to lose interest.

                            Studio version of Shakedown Street is lame, but it became a monster live.

                            Check out this version from 83. Play LOUD !!

                              Absolutely. Shakedown opener always portended a great show in my experience. Feeling that first chord go right through you was electric.

                              Also loved seeing Prince play “Purple Rain,” agree that Springsteen’s homage was cool and that Clapton’s cover is nauseating.

                              I think we’ve had this discussion here before, but Prince is definitely on my list for consideration as the best “five-tool player” of musicians, ever.
