Scranton/Pittston Show 03/11/05

I caught the show at the Staircase in Pittston Pa last weekend. A long drive from Pittsburgh, but well worth the travel time. Dickey Betts and Great Southern were sharp from the start, opening with a great version of High Falls. Other highlights included Statesboro Blues (Dickey seems to have taken to the slide again, big time), and an inspired Liz Reed with a scorching solo by Dickey that was a jaw-dropper. Another highlight was the inclusion of Bougainvillea which I had not heard live previously: great dual guitar work on the song by Dickey and Dan Toler. Bougainvillea is such a gem and it's great to hear Dickey pull it from the vault and play it live. In another surprise, DBGS layed down a blistering Stormy Monday, with vocals from a female back-up singer that blew everyone away. I don't know her name, but she's got a barrelhouse voice, and it was great to hear a voice like that bounced against Dickey and Dan's guitars. DBGS played for 3 hours, with a short intermission. The show closed with inspired versions of Jessica and Ramblin' Man, back to back. Everyone was on their feet, including a couple in their mid 70's who were dancing in front of the stage, and slapping high-fives with everyone around. A terrific, high energy show..
