Last Two Week’s Sauce: July 26 – August 8

Last Week’s Sauce is a recurring column featuring recordings of shows that took place the previous week. I was on Phish tour last week, so this edition covering two weeks of shows. Thanks to manitouman for the photo.


Artist & Title: Buddy Guy – Voodoo Chile, Buddy’s Blues
Date & Venue: 2009-07-26 Gathering Of The Vibes, Bridgeport CT
Taper & Show Download: Scott Bernstein

Back in January 2008, we ran a piece on child musical prodigies, and Quinn Sullivan was one of them. Well, in addition to this kid shredding it on stage with Buddy Guy a couple times a year, he’s now starting to sing as well. The second tune featured here is titled Buddy’s Blues and what I assume is one of the first Quinn Sullivan originals. Watch out for this guy. Buddy Guy plays tonight at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Gathering of the Vibes: Day Four

Sunday morning is always a mellow day for Gathering of the Vibes. With the four day weekend coming to a close and the festival rolling into its last hours of music, many are busy packing up camp and getting ready for the trip home. Some are exchanging emails with their camping neighbors, while others are getting the number from a cute girl they danced with through till the morning sun. However, this year’s headliner Crosby Stills and Nash helped to draw many new attendees to the site for Sunday only. A deal that was even further sweetened by the Sunday only VIP option allowing you to show up and get down, no camping supplies needed.

The morning started off with the World Peace Prayer and the Harlem Gospel Choir, similar to last year’s Sunday lineup. The sweet soothing sounds gently nudged the sleeping masses awake. At the GOTV, even church on Sunday involves singing and getting down.

Next up was a different sort of religion as John Brown’s Body came out strong with their reggae sounds. It somehow seems like sunny Sunday mornings are made for listening to reggae. The boys from Boston get you on your feet and moving with out exaggerating the previous night’s head-ache.

A Phishy Night For The Allman Brothers Band

The Allman Brothers Band took things to the next level tonight both by themselves and with special guests keyboardist Page McConnell and axemen Buddy Guy and Trey Anastasio at the third show of their 40th Anniversary run at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. ABB guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes both were up to the task of dueling with their extremely talented guests and the crowd ate up every moment of it.

I’ve been following the run on Moogis so far and tonight was the first show of the run I caught in person. Boy, did I pick the right night to show up at the Beacon. It was clear the Trey and Page rumors I’ve been hearing for weeks were about to come true when I entered the newly renovated theater to see Anastasio’s wooden cabinet set up next to bassist Oteil Burbridge’s rig. As amazing as the Phish member’s sit-ins were, this show would still be my favorite ABB show I’ve seen without a sniff of our boys.

This third show started the same way the first show of the run started off on Monday; Derek and Warren nailed Duane Allman’s beautiful instrumental – Little Martha. The rest of the band shuffled out afterwards and ran through a number of their more bluesy numbers before welcoming Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy to the stage for a nasty cover of Elmore James’ The Sky Is Crying. Trucks was beaming as he dueled with Guy – one of his influences – through a number of call and response segments.
