Warehouse 5/8 Announced, but it's more than thatPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 7:35pm on Tuesday, Feb 7th, 2012
The Warehouse announced their annual Warehouse disc, Warehouse 5 Volume 11 and Warehouse 8 Volume 8 (the 8 for those with 3+ years in the club), and this year, it's a bit more than the usual 8 total tracks. When you factor in all the teases, there's 15 (or 16 - see below) different songs. The tracks are:
- Pantala Naga Pampa (Gravedigger Intro) > Rapunzel 4.26.02 Allstate Arena, Rosemont, IL
- Crazy Easy 7.16.04 ctnow.com Meadows Music Theatre, Hartford, CT
- Gas Into Fire > What Would You Say 6.17.04 UMB Bank Pavilion, Maryland Heights, MO
- Old Dirt Hill tease > Why I Am 4.18.09 John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA
- Everyday tease > Halloween > Water Into Wine outro 8.5.08 Riverbend Music Center, Cincinnati, OH
- Sister 6.17.06 Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
- So Damn Lucky 7.14.10 Montage Mountain, Scranton, PA
- Ants Marching 8.31.93 Trax Nightclub, Charlottesville, VA
The first track features the very first Gravedigger, different lyrically (and musically) from the current version. That Crazy-Easy is generally regarded as if not the best version ever, at the very least the best version lyrically. Gas Into Fire is a tiny snipped of a song brimming with potential, so it's nice to see a clean version of it pop up. Why I Am came from an outro created for Old Dirt Hill in 2007, and the two met in 2009 in Charlottesville in this great version. Also of note is the strong reaction from fans on Dave's first mention of the Groo Grux King. The Halloween fake is epic. And before you go bagging on Sister, this is an especially beautiful version, probably the best ever, so give it a shot, hater. So Damn Lucky has a Thank You outro (second "cover" of sorts on a Warehouse disc), and also you may be able to pick up a Digging A Ditch tease by Rashawn in the jam. Ants Marching actually segued out of Doobie Thing a long lost fan favorite. It's not listed on the track info, so it's probably not on the disc, but there's a chance that a few of its notes make it on during the segue. It's a start I guess.
Naturally, the fan reaction has been extremely positive. And once everyone listens to the Sister and realizes that it's pretty boss, the reaction will only be more sanguine. The disc generally ships 6-8 weeks after the announcement, so don't go checking your mailbox just yet. Wait til tomorrow at least.
