Reader Review: TAB @ AE Stage, Pittsburgh, PA: Casey Boire

2.25.11 - Pittsburgh (M.Stein)

Nestled in the shadow of Pittsburgh’s Three-Rivers Stadium, Trey and his Classic TAB line-up rolled into Stage AE on Friday night and laid down an impressive show that was arguably the best of the tour so far. Upon walking in around the scheduled show time, I was surprised to see the place packed from wall to wall considering that it was one of the few shows to not sell out beforehand. Trey came onstage around 8:30 pm and opened his acoustic set with Backwards Down the Number Line. Everyone was in good spirits and as Trey sang the final part of the song, the crowd joined in by providing the backing lyrics of “All my friends, Backwards Down The Number Line.” The sing-along continued throughout the first set and included well-played versions of Gumbo, Farmhouse, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, and The Horse > Silent in the Morning…Read On Here!

    I’ve never heard most of this. Got a sealed original copy at Dusty Groove on Saturday. pretty killer.

  3. Selector J Says:

    haha no worries, man. @robear I love all those recs. I’ve got History on a 12″ 45 (backed with Jr Delgado’s Sons of Slaves– winning!). Keep ’em coming.

    @aw that looks tight. great score. Looks like it might be a really different sound with the studio being in NYC. Philip Smart is the real deal so it probably sounds great.

  4. Mugician Says:

    Anybody going to TAB tonight at the Ogden?

  5. Aquaman Says:

    @Sel Jay


    I thought he was about to blow an “O” ring.

    Finished my source review of the 2-26 sources. Went with MK41, just better bass definition down low. MBHO source sounded great until Tony went down low and then its just indistinguishable. Notice intro to Sand to really hear the difference. Check my blog for full review.

  7. albert walker Says:

    yeah it is great. doing a vinyl pull for a few kids. I’ll put up the link later in case you want to check it out. killer album cover of a tidal wave crashing over NYC. statue of liberty is dreaded out and is holding a book that says jah on it. king kong holding a spliff super ape style.

    scored that along with a OG Charlie Chaplin Free Africa and Junior Delgado Stranger

    good digging last weekend

  8. Selector J Says:

    @aw love those old reggae covers. there has been some revival in that with guys like alborosie and roots manuva employing tony mcdermott (scientist’s world cup, vampires, pac-man, etc.) . I hope the trend continues.
    great digging, too. (winning.)

  9. Selector J Says:

    @aqua did you see the one on the sidebar where he had his face painted like the Joker… better to stay away from that one, actually.

  10. Aquaman Says:

    It’s Pavlovian…….you know I’m going to click now.

  11. Robear Says:

    mugs, you are the only bb’er in Brahlorado for the shows, it seems. Post a review by all means!

    yes @ AW, zip that one up for us! $$$

  12. albert walker Says:

    no doubt some of those are classics. the almost comic strip looking style

    was just spinning my I Came I Saw I Conquered – Revolutionaries OG pressing

    the Selassie portrait drawing with the red, gold, and green

    talk about $$$

    need to put that shit in a album cover flame on the wall. one of my favorites.

  13. Mugician Says:

    Dang, ’cause I have a ticket.

    Guess somebody’s gettin’ lucky tonight.

  14. Aquaman Says:

    OK…..I clicked…….here’s what is bugging me.

    Is he the enemy of everyone?

    I think he has ID’d the entire nation as an enemy.

  15. Selector J Says:

    @aqua don’t say i didn’t warn you…

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    anyone find camping near bethel yet?????

  17. Selector J Says:

    @aw If you scroll to the bottom of homepage, they have a random artwork generator. Fun way to find out about albums, too.

  18. Selector J Says:

    like I said @aqua: batshit crazy. It’s an evil bad trip with a media outlet. Screw Bilderberg and the NWO, the scary thing is he has followers. Tons of them.

  19. Aquaman Says:

    Oh, I was already on 3 of 3 when you sent 1 of 3. My fingers kept clicking as I told them “stop”.

    I need time to digest the crazy.

    Pass the Tums……

  20. voopa Says:
