Album Review

The Dave Matthews Band's annual live album for 2007 chronicles an outdoor performance at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA, before a large and enthusiastic audience. The two-and-a-half-hour set (extended to three CDs by putting the two-song, 18-minute encore on a separate disc) is a fairly typical representation of the group's most popular repertoire, including much-played favorites from the popular albums Under the Table and Dreaming ("What Would You Say," "Warehouse," "Ants Marching"), Crash ("Two Step," "So Much to Say," "Too Much"), and Before These Crowded Streets ("Don't Drink the Water," "The Dreaming Tree," "Stay [Wasting Time]"), plus a couple from the most recent studio album, Stand Up ("You Might Die Trying," "Louisiana Bayou"). Although nominally a quintet, the Dave Matthews Band at this show is really a seven-piece outfit, with keyboardist Butch Taylor and trumpeter Rashawn Ross on every track except Matthews' brief solo, "#40." Taylor in particular fills out the sound and takes extensive solos on such songs as "All Along the Watchtower," and Ross, pairing with bandmember LeRoi Moore, creates a horn section for the group. The show was opened by the Allman Brothers Band, and Matthews brings on Allmans singer/guitarist Warren Haynes for "What Would You Say" and Gregg Allman himself to play guitar on a version of the Allmans' "Melissa." A good time clearly was had by all, and if this album, like most of the Dave Matthews Band's live recordings, is not essential by design, merely constituting an aural snapshot of a working group, it still is an enjoyable effort, especially for fans.

love it love it love it

This is such an amazing album, I never get tired of hearing it, so many good songs from the early years to their latest. This album will not disapoint

DMB Live @Piedmont Park: A Musical Feat.

Before I liked DMB (I'm now a huge fan with 950 songs on my Mac) I never understood why they were so good. One day I was driving with my friend and he put in this album and I heard All along the watchtower and i remembered thinking wow. Then he played One Sweet World and i realized that I really enjoy listening to DMB. Then he played Ants and that is when I knew I was a DMB fan. It took three songs from this fantastic Live Album for me to realize DMB is not just a band but a spectacular group of performers who play with the most passion I've ever seen. I still find myself listening to this album because it is my favorite live album and it got me into DMB. Buy this album. The highlights are One Sweet World, Two Step, Ants Marching, All Along the Watchtower, 27, So much To Say and Lousiana Bayou. Buy this album and you will be in music ecstasy for a long time.

Perfect Dave and Band!

I own pretty much every DMB cd, this one is a must have. You will not be disappointed. Some rare songs like dreaming tree and eh hee, and some amazing duets with Greg Allman and others.
