He wrote the damn words, and the music. They worked on it in the studio, shit changed, they scrapped it

    Well, Dave inexplicably in the end agrees with Ryley in that Monkey Man is terrible, which is a mini-travesty because what they managed to capture in trying to finish that song is AMAZING!

    In the end, yes it is tragic. But I’m completely content with the version we got out of the Lillywhite Sessions. I could listen to that all day. Things change as an artist, and you have a different view on your work than an outside listener could. This Walker cat has the same perspective ears as all the rest of us, and it’s as simple as he just doesn’t have the same tastes as I do.

    And although Dave’s taste in his own music, old and new, is sometimes questionable, his actual music taste is great. I recently read an article where Dave was raving about Fragile by Yes, so Dave gets it. (Yes is one of my favorite bands )

    That in no way means he saw its greatness - there are a ton of reasons artists create art. Don't see how this is really debatable.

    Fenway version of both AB and ABI have legitamently put tears on my cheeks. "Seems God doesn't smile down on anymore than this, so stay my American Baby" is an incredible improv outro from that night.

    Much love for ABI too


    I really dig American Baby. Cool groove. I think the song may be too jingoistic for DMB and hence why it isn't played.

    i'll probably give this a listen considering the track lengths. im interested to see what he does with them. however, i was not at all impressed by busted stuff, so going in with very low expectations.

    You should get over yourself as in you are now finding me in other threads and continuing to spread your crap taste “Monkey Man is a bad song” is what you replied to me in another thread when I was talking about learning Last Stop On Bass. I don’t know why you are so hung about Monkey Man. It’s weird.

    Anyhow.. Not sure how this is groundless or how I was corrected - The guy covering this album stated that Monkey Man is a horrible song and also said that he loves Stand Uo. That shows his taste right there. Not much else to prove. He is not into the complex progressive songs as much as he is into the hip-hop infused pop that is Stand Up. Monkey Man is a great song and he doesn’t see it. And you clearly don’t either. Maybe you aren’t into that side of DMB, but to me it’s tops.

    I truly prefer Ryley’s Version of “Busted Stuff”. Way more interesting. That tapping in the chorus is excellent. Also the drum work is fantastic.

    Re: Ryley Walker To Release Lillywhite Sessions Cover Album

    Saw Ryley and his band last night for the first time here in Seattle. They played about 7 tunes over 80 minutes and the musicianship was sensational. This is not an indie rock band, it’s a highly talented jam band with prog-rock and folksy undertones. Talked to Ryley and he was pumped people seemed interested in his take on the LS, but mentioned they’ll be sticking to their own tunes on the road for now. Of about 70 people at the show, a third hit the merch table after. Definitely the best show I’ve been to for $13 or less. People should check em out if they’re coming through your city. I was blown away.

    I’ll check this out in Apple Music. But this doesn’t look good as of yet.

    Yeah, after reading the article and listening to Busted Stuff I had about as low expectations as possible. Just checked out his album Primrose Green and I gotta say it’s not what I expected at all. He talked himself up as some “Indy Rocker”, but that album is jazzy and is very reminiscent of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks. I still don’t like that The Lillywhite Sessions is being covered, but I’ll give it an honest shot

    Haha, I posted that I dislike Monkey Man in a thread of unpopular opinions, because it's true and what that thread is intended for. I listened to it again yesterday because I hadn't in years and reconfirmed my opinion, so I posted it. The fact that you think I'm following you around in threads is hilarious - bit narcissistic.

    This could be the best post in this thread.

    But yeah I'll throw $10 his way for the iTunes version. Busted Stuff sounded nice to me.

    I think Busted Stuff is a bad song to judge the entire project on. It's relatively simple and leaves little room for variation and improvement. I think the overall project hinges on the production of Grey Street and JTR

    I'm waiting for Wheeler Walker Jr. to cover the Lillywhite Sessions. Then I'll buy.

    Got this “Busted Stuff” on repeat. Was kind of hoping we would get a second track today but no luck.

    He's more likely to cover Cornbread.

    I'm looking forward to this as much as I did Come Tomorrow. The drummer is outstanding and I'm really interested to hear their take on Monkey Man and Bartender.
