Dickey Betts & Great Southern - Janus Landing - 4/20/2002
Dickey was great last night. Janus Landing is a very cool little place to see a concert. Dickey and Great Southern played for the better part of three hours. I don't have a complete list together and there were a couple of songs that I don't know the names of but some of the highlights were High Falls, I think the name of the song is Let's all get Together ? Donna Maria, I've Got Too Change My Way of Living.
They opened the second set with about 40 minute acoustic set with a fiddle player, mostly new stuff, which is actually some really old stuff, which will all be on their new album. A tune called Preacher which has a Chet Atkins swing feel to it and another instrumental that just made you feel like dancing a jig. Then they played Seven Turns which was incredible.
After all that acoustic music they plugged back in and jammed for another hour. Blue Sky, Back Where It All Began, Steady Rollin' Man (blues), and Jessica. There is a curfew on outdoor music in St. Petersburg so at about 11:30 which was already passed the curfew Dickey says" the cops ought to be here in about 12 minutes. I have ten songs to play and 12 minutes to play em in. So what do y'all want to hear, Ramblin' Man or Nobody Left To Run With?"
They closed the Show with Nobody Left To Run With. Great night of music. Dan Toler was great. I can see why they call him Dangerous Dan. He is a fairly dangerous man in a fairly dangerous band. Folks, buy your tickets and go see Dickey Betts and Great Southern."
