In response to Reply # 0


  

          

"Why" was performed with Dave Mathews once.


I'm pretty sure "Gunz Are Drawn", "Complexity", "False Media", "Baby", "Can't Stop This" have never been performed, just to name a few recent ones.

obviously i'm exaggerating, and at the same time, the roots' discography is fairly large, so i wouldn't expect to hear it all in concert anyway, BUT

organix never gets played (heard BT didn't like it)
DYWM and illadelph--i haven't heard or heard of much getting played

now i understand why you play what you play. i've read your reasons and they make perfect sense, but there's alot from those albums i'm sure rarely if ever get played. maybe i'm wrong.

In response to Reply # 29


          

not one question was asked in my post.


i simply stated that most of the songs on those albums don't get played. sure, there might be a recording with a few (which i have), but most have either not been recorded (at least that we've heard)

if you've heard organix live, let me know
check the songs on illidelph and DYWM. half the tracks aren't on any live recordings we've heard.

Dynamite is flipping great live. One of the best Roots songs live IMO. I wish they would play this more regularly...
