Album Review

This three-disc collection marks the debut entry in moe.'s Dr. Stan series, which features complete, unedited performances assembled by the band's own archivist, Dr. Stan Lobitz. The majority of the track list comes from a 2004 performance aboard a Caribbean cruise ship, while the album's "filler" is taken from a gig in Colorado in 1995. The band sounds loose and comfortable during the cruise ship segment, a mood no doubt indebted for the sunshine and tropical vibes that permeated the pool deck, and moe. even tosses out a few covers for the occasion: Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive," "Turn on Your LoveLight" as interpreted by the Grateful Dead, and a rather imprecise (but well-meaning) version of the Band's "The Weight." Rounding out the latter halves of discs two and three is the 1995 performance, which includes a hyperactive performance of "Dr. Graffenberg" as well as a barreling, jam-head take on "Havah Negilah." It's interesting to jump back in time with this decade-old set, during which the band introduces itself as "merely the appetizer for Leftover Salmon" (presumably the headliner for the evening). moe. has since established itself as a jam-band heavyweight with far more albums in its catalog than Leftover Salmon, and fans of the band will be interested in hearing the "then and now" switcheroo that this collection presents. As is the case with many moe. releases, this one is for fans only — but fans will surely eat it up.

Stanley Lobitz

I think this has some great music on it! Oh, and I am Karlie Lobitz, Stan's daughter!!

Good time...

This is a great live recording of moe. at their most relaxed - on a boat in the Caribbean. The filler tracks of old times are a great reminder of how far they came, and how their joy matured as well. They're clearly having a blast in both recordings and to notice the difference in how that is expressed through the music and their interactions with the crowd really shines through. This is a must have for almost any self-respecting moe.ron, as clearly neither performance is run of the mill moe, and certainly way better than the last couple of studio albums.

Sweet Tunes!!!

Any who would waste their breath disputing the BRILLIANCE of Moes. genius does not know what good music is all about. This is a great compilation of the various jams that Moe. has generated over the years and hopefully just the beginning of another wonderful collection of tracks.

Rising from the dingy college bars of upstate New York, moe. carved a niche for themselves with a distinct blend of Americana, melodic turns, clever songwriting, and jam band ethics. The bandmates were born and raised in the industrial town of Utica, but it took matriculation at the University of Buffalo for moe. to finally coalesce. Founded in 1990 by bassist/vocalist Rob Derhak, guitarist/vocalist Chuck Garvey, and original drummer Ray Schwartz, the band toured the university's party circuit under...
