    This is the song that got me hooked. Specifically the Two Step-->BOWA on RR95. Whenever this CD came out, ever since DMB's been my favorite band

    The Best of What's Around is magical and unique. Every time I listen to studio BOWA and that outro hits.....chills, just damn

    Re: Is RR95 the best BOWA?

    Absolutely one of top 5 songs the band does. I will never get sick of this song. Studio. Live. whatever.

    I think the 95 red rocks version was top notch, but I don't feel that it's the best. I'm sure there's quite a few versions that people would consider the best. The version I've personally heard that I'd consider a better performance, at least during a more recent time period, would be the Chicago Caravan N3 version.

    But saying that, I think we can definitely go through the touring years and pick some really excellent performances of this. I think the better question is.....why hasn't this been a consistent tour staple like Ants? The world will never know.

    UTTAD is the best one, IMO.

    I loved the RR version when I first heard it, but listening to it now, it feels like they rush the hell out of it. Studio is perfection.

    Yeah, the beginning sounds really rushed. If you compare the beginning to the outro, the pace is completely different. They slow it down to almost half the original speed.

    Re: Is RR95 the best BOWA?

    This is one of their songs that I probably prefer the studio version to the live version. That recording is absolutely perfect and in a sense, it encapsulates a lot of what DMB is to me. When they get into the "Hey la!" Section at the end of the studio version it just moves me in a way that not many songs can. It's perfection and probably one of my favorite studio tracks.

    I really like the new DMBLive one with the keys and the slower tempo.

    Live Trax 2 is far and away the best version of BOWA.

    Acoustic, 4.1.03

    This is probably the one song from the big 3 that I never really found a live version I really liked. Maybe their best studio song. Live versions I've heard aren't great.

    I really enjoy Dave's outro on LT26. But, LT2 takes the cake for me.

    RR seems rushed to me. As a few of you mentioned, its very hard to beat the studio version of BOWA. That being said, LT 2 is pretty good. Outro is top notch. Dave really nails it.

    26 is an Underrated version, but the first half of it sounds kind of lifeless and for some reason Butch is really high in the mix. That outro is awesome though.

    LT 2 FTW!
