If you're so disappointed....
on September 28, 2003
may I recommend one of the various "greatest hits" albums? That way you can play "You Never Even Called Me" and "Take This Job and Shove It" on a continuous loop... This is a LIVE album, as in "recorded during a show". Name me one artist who goes onstage, doesn't interact with or speak to the audience, does a bunch of songs, and walks out the door.... This album is a take-home version of a DAC show, since, unfortunately, most people cannot roam from town to town following a performer. A Coe show is a lot like a Grateful Dead show used to be (without all the stinky dancing hippies).... a free-form, seat of the pants experience. David plays what he feels like playing that night, be it his classics, new original music, other artists' music, or a medley of stuff strung together. If you buy this expecting a studio album or regurgitation of his past classics, yes, you will be disappointed, but you also don't "get the concept". Our buddy "Guitar Bob" strikes me as the kind of guy who would have gone to a Dead show and complained that they didn't play "Touch of Grey".... As for the rest of us, this album is a live show available anytime we want a fix... DAC can only play so many shows a year, and won't be touring forever, so if you can't experience it in person, get this and the Biketoberfest CD.... and hold on!
