I love ya Lonn but I can't take Jacket over the Dead in their top form.  I love MMJ as much as anyone, but my love for the Dead trumps all...   :beer:

As for your other comparisons, I can't really argue against any others.

Thank fuck we're fans of the most insanely perfect band of all time my god i can't wait to hear what some of you would say if they actually ever had a bad night for once...

In comparison to Phish ? Jacket destroy Phish. Bar none.
Grateful Dead even at their mid 70s best? Without question the Jacket are better.

Zeppelin? Jacket again.

The who? Didnt mix up their setlists hardly enough. Jacket.

The Band? Too tame at times and never got crazy. Jacket

Allman Bros ? After Duane it aint the same. Jacket

Rolling stones? Outside of the studio they only have a few great shows live, try Micks voice out for comparison. Jacket

What Jim does for us fans CANNOT be matched in the pantheon of rock and roll. 

Try singing their entire discography and then tell me what's happenin.

Not taking it personal.
Facts is facts hahah

Also, sorry but i enjoy the Gram Parsons country crack in his voice every now and then. Outside of the appropriately placed ones, i dont think he's cracking or losing his intensity, It's totally about preservation.


I love you.

What’s great is that they’re a culmination of ALL those bands/sounds. They’ve taken every great aspect of rock’s history and mashed it all together beautifully.

No doubt!

They’re like a blend of The Band, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and the Allman Bros

I could hear a very slight weakness and crackling in Jim's voice only on certain lines of certain songs.  Jim has set the bar so high. What I like about Jim's voice and the band is that they are so raw yet polished.  The crackling, etc is part of the raw.  To sing for almost 9 hours like that over 4 days while playing instruments is pretty special in my book.

Nashville to Kentucky on OBH4---"take me out of this dead end nightmare, take me out of this hell i'm in"  Oozes with emotion and force.  I swear I rewound and listened to that part at least 10 times.  Would like to hear a good country music act cover that song just to give it some more exposure that it deserves.  Many of the deep cuts on the first 3 albums have become my favorite now.

Went golfing the other night and had OBH4 playing on the bluetooth.  It doesn't get much better than riding down the fairway with a little buzz, evening sun peaking thru the trees, course to yourself and Golden playing in the background.  The simplest of pleasures, the world at its best.

I liked it when they played it at Gov Ball back in 2015 but this recording isn't doing it for me. :shrug:

I caught Big Decisions on public radio randomly one day in 2015 and was like, hmmm, I like this singer and the sound of this band. I should check them out.

Well, I did. Five shows later, I'm hooked for life, own the discography, the hoodie, 2 t-shirts, stocking cap ... even the 8-bit socks lol

Strange. Have you compared it to the OBH2 recording to see if there's something about it live at OBH4 that didn't jive with you?  Just curious.

Hahha no prob The Dead are so sicknasty especially Cosmic Charlie Beacon theater 1976, The Other One from Des Moines 1978 and the best China Cat / Rider? Winterland 1974 as seen on the GDMovie bonus disc

I LOVE ALL OF YOU CRAZY JACKET FANS!!!!!!

Seriously, as you said Rob they took everything we love about classic rock and roll and then shot it into the veins of the the great spacegawd and then fed that thru a reverb tank, and later, through an octave pedal

Howdy,

Long time listener, first time caller here. 

My wife and I were lucky enough to attend the first OBH in Playa and this most recent one in the Dominican. This most recent time with our trooper of a little man who is a fellow MMJ fan in training. Both times were amazing.

The recordings for this most recent OBH, though. WOW. I haven't stopped listening since they dropped in my email. Highlights for me were "They Ran" and "I Will Sing You Songs". Jim's voice, the guitar riffs....just pure bliss.

Anyway's, I'm drinking a beer as we speak and hoping there's an OBH 5 in the cards for 2019.

Salud! :beer:

I say this as someone who has been to all four OBHs and loves the band, but you clearly never saw Phish 1.0. Those shows were magical night after night. If you are talking about 3.0, sure. But Phish in the 90s was incredible.

and obviously never saw The Who in their late 60's-early 70's prime.  but then again, few of us did.
