there is a Fela Kuti Dondante from late nite High Sierra show in 2006, 6/30/06 I believe. Sick stuff. Love how the change in drumbeat "inverts" the whole thing.

Thanks!  Do you have a track time?  That show has never made it to the archive.  Just the 7/1/06 main stage show is on there.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

why are you getting so technical with this track. Let it be played and or extened into however long a jam the band chooses. That is what  love about how dondante has grown

I think we all love the fact that the band mixes it up so much which is the very reason we get so technical about the song. Do you need to know the name of an incredible wine to enjoy it? no.  But for some people it makes it more enjoyable.

I hate to say this since I was at the Louisville show, but I think we have a new winner.  

The High Sierra Late Show 06 version is 14:50.  There's about 10 seconds of crowd noise, but that's still longer than da ville.  and it is definitely a Fela Kuti version.  I think I'm going to use this version for the covers comp from now on.  and here it is:

Well yes, I do tend to get overly technical about some things, it's just the way I am about things I love.   I understand if you just want to let it be what it is.  It's just a jam after all.  My original intent was just to use track time to help me figure out which versions might be different so I don't have to listen to every single one!

However I'm not sure why you would say "let it be played and or extended into however long a jam the band chooses."  I didn't know I was somehow prohibiting them from playing it however they like.  In fact, I thought I was encouraging it. :-/

Thanks for checking the High Sierra Dylan, and the link.  We have a new winner!

Yes! So glad this High Sierra version is getting its due. It was sick that night. One of the best shows I have ever seen them play. Sooo much room to dance in an old barn starting at 2 in the morning or so.  Great stuff.  Rapid fire link, how do I download?

numbdub

oh. i got it. duh. thanks.

These boards used to have lots of cool discussion/disection like this thread.

So, fast forward 13 years.....

Anyone know the longest Dondante?

Atlanta fox on the WF tour is still my personal favorite. Heavy metal machine!!!

Red Rocks 2016? Port Chester 2012?

RR 2019 was a hair under 27 minutes.

RR 2016 around 16 minutes but that 2012 cap show was right at 25. Didn't realize they stretched it out that much until that far back.

Huh, I had thought one of those performances topped 30 minutes. The 2011s were insane - Lollapalooza had a great one.

My Dondante has to be Red Rocks 2012. Everything Changes at the end was the moment I truly understood the song. Sort of what Jim did with Where to Begin in Charlotte.

This is one I always come back to. This clip isn't starting halfway into the song, they began the song with the end jam and came back around to the beginning. Have they ever done this any other time?
Charlotte, NC - 8.27, Lexington, KY - 8/28, OBH 2022

my favorite is from 9-13-2012 at the wiltern in la.  21 minutes.  the beginning is unreal, people shrieking on the audience tape.

check out the 'i think i'm going to hell' right before it too.
