What is your favorite 2007-2008 recording and why? What’s the best sounding recording? Best performance? Blah, blah, blah

To answer your question I need to listen to some good shows..and I need the help of some experts inside this group :-)

I just listened to the Greensboro and then Cleveland shows…I attended the Cleveland show…and I think the Ed wasn’t at his best, right from the beginning.

For sure there are shows were the band sounded good…

To be honest, It seems that the second part of the 2008 shows were better played, maybe because Eddie came back “clean”.

Didn’t really collect much of this tour but I have to say the increase in good quality phone shot vid was a welcome improvement to the amount that was shot and the increase of mult-angle shows.
For me as a guitar player the show Randy put together of just Ed close up was without doubt the best. Sorry I can’t remember the actual show and I’d have to wade through my discs to find it… but for seeing the notes and the weird way Ed attacked the strings and held the pick with his double jointed thumb was awesome.

Sorry, not sure if Frank meant vid or audio

I was thinking audio but you’re right I didn’t specify. I appreciate the information either way.

The recordings from the end of the tour (May-June) were some of the best performance wise.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

I saw the May 30, 2008 Chicago, IL Allstate Arena show and found it great. Not sure if there is a recording.

The Baltimore show is a great listen from that May 2008 stretch. Dave was more comfortable and starting to come out of his shell and be Dave. And his singing was the best it was going to be in the reunion. Ed was happy and steady, even if he still wasn’t totally himself. It was the best he had been in a while. The whole band just looks loose, happy, and in sync with one another. And the setlist hits you like a freight train. I saw them in October 2007; I wish I could have seen this.

This Baltimore show was the turning point for me. Ed just wasn’t up to par in 2007 and or during many of the early 2008 shows, but when I heard “I’m the One” from this show, I literally got goosebumps.I kept backing up the solos and listening to them over and over again. From this point forward, Eddie was FINALLY back.
