Editorial Reviews

In 2012, there was a huge concert event to celebrate Dan's 70th birthday. It was an amazing evening featuring guest appearances by Ricki Lee Jones, Harry Shearer, Maria Muldaur, Roy Rogers, Tuck and Patti, Sid Page, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and many others! The CD has several of Dan's biggest hits as well as some never before released live!

1. Overture Medley
2. By Hook or By Crook
3. Dan s Welcome
4. Hummin To Myself
5. Driftin
6. Walkin One and Only
7. Evenin Breeze
8. He Don t Care
9. Song for My Father
10. Take the A Train
11. Beedle-Um-Bum
12. I Feel Like Singin
13. I Scare Myself

I wish I could rave about how great this CD is. I was there at Davies Hall, and it was the worst sound by far of any concert I've ever been to, so I was hoping things turned out great for this recording. If you are a Dan fan, you will no doubt want this, and you should have it for your collection. New or more casual fans, not so much. I can live with the amateurish artwork. And the recording quality is mostly excellent. The performances, however, are a mixed bag, and nothing bears repeated listening except, maybe, "He Don't Care" (aka "He's Stoned", a humorous song Dan wrote way back in the Haight-Ashbury days) and "Song For My Father". The CD begins with a sort of big band medley of instrumental Hicks tunes, which is pretty cool. The problem boils down to sloppy vocals, and too many cooks. Dan is barely (or not) in tune himself much of the time. Maybe the onstage sound was as bad as the main sound system, in any case, the guests sound ragged, too, for the most part, except for (Tuck and) Patti. A whole song is given to Jim Kweskin (why?), and several of the songs suffer from endless solos by the many guests. Dan has written lyrics to the Duke Ellington classic "Take The A-Train", but his vocal is out of tune and leans on the cute/clever factor at the expense of finesse. "I Feel Like Singing" drags as the eleven vocalists onstage each take a chorus to scat. Solos by the awesome Sid Page and David Grisman are bright spots, but too brief, and while their playing shines on the encore of "I Scare Myself", the energy overall is uneven. Also, the disc is clumsily edited, with non sequitur stage announcements and weird fades. Amazon lists track 6 as "Walkin' One And Only", but there is no such title on the CD.Read more ›

A switch from the usual Dan Hicks....I love the drums! The horn section is a good addition. Its worth the purchase!

I'm a LONG TIME fan of Dan Hicks, and have most of everything he's ever put out, but I'd stay away from this one. Sorry this one may have been a great concept, but it needed more "structure" which is NOT Dan's style probably. I still love his work, but this one doesn't represent the band I know & love.

I think Dan Hicks is an awesome entertainer. I have two other CDs of his work and have seen him live. His arrangements are impeccable and fun to listen to and hope he makes a return to my area for another performance. That being said this CD is a great disappointment. It seemed to be not well rehearsed and sound quality is lacking. Knowing several of the tunes from studio recordings made this CD hard to listen to. I do not recommend this disc.

This contains clips from Dan's 70th birthday party at Davies Symphony Hall. Good live sound from the stage. Between-song editing is choppy and lacks Dan's usual humor.

Lots of guests and a couple of long group jams on "I Feel Like Singing" & "I Scare Myself".

Though Dan is pictured playing drums on the cover, he's only credited vocals and guitar in the liner. If you're deeply into Dan, you'll want this disc for the opening medley by the four-horn swing ensemble. But sadly, its clear there was good material held back, though probably for legitimate reasons.
