Show Me Your Dondante.

I would like to play a little game called Show Me Your Dondante.

Anyone who has a copy of a live Dondante, please give me the total running time of the song.  I am looking for the longest ever played but I would like your numbers even if you know it won't compete.  Why?  Well first of all, because I'm a dork.  But more importantly, I think it will help me find different versions based on time.  I know there are really only two basic versions (I will call them V1 and V2), but they really seem to mix it up a lot with this song.  For example, I am going to start with St. Louis as the longest V1 type.  This is a show I attended and I recommend listening to at least the Dondante/Run thru if you get a chance.  It seems different to me.  And Bonnaroo '06 as the longest V2 type.  These are just a couple I have on my office itunes so I am sure it wont' be hard to beat.  Anyway, humor me....

St. Louis-Mississippi Nights-11/22/05  V1 Dondante 11:20  

Bonnaroo-6/16/06  V2 Dondante 13:20
(Recording is 14:05 but has 45 seconds of crowd noise at end of track.  Some of the copies have some running crowd noise on the track so once we have a few contenders for the title of "longest", I will check them to make sure.)

Again, give me your times even if it's not the longest and give me the version V1 or V2 if you know.  V2 being the one with sax at the beginning.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

The one from Okonokos says 11:20.......V1

Wow I didn't expect to get Okonokos.  Exactly the same.  Hmmmm.

We definately need an update on this thread.   I heard a lot of talk of the new extended version of Dondante and I thought you just meant the small changes like I heard at Radio City. Then I listened to Atlanta this morning.  Holy Crap!  I'm sure there are several other great ones from recently but I have not heard them yet so SHOW ME YOUR DONDANTE!

I'm going to call this fall 08 style a new version, V3, but it still falls just shy of the Fela Kuti version in Indy but still an amazing 13 minutes 54 seconds!

OK we have a new all around winner.  Louisville - Waterfront Park 8-16-08 weighs in at a massive 14:36!!!!!!   Probably, unbeatable.

Still, give Atlanta a listen, the sax at the end is different and a real treat!

I was thinking Louisville 8-16 had to be up there. No time for Philly yet though.

bh, i will posit that there is now a V3! (hushed murmurings from the crowd)
at the berkeley and l.a. shows the instrumental portion ramped up into this crazy speed version of the song.  in berk. i thought it might be a one off, but they did it again in los angeles.

fyi--this makes the song quite a bit shorter.

and that louisville dondante still has my head spinning.  YOW!  :o

Just went straight to Berkeley on the archive and damn!!!!  I think we are getting version 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7!   The beginning is actually slower I think, and then yes, at the 8 minute mark, it goes fucking bannanas!  

Ba-Ba-Bannanas-nanas.

So now, I would say Louisville, Atlanta, and Berkely are all significantly different.  Amazing.   All equal in their awesomeness.   Son of a bitch, now I'm going to have to listen to all of them. ;D

I got  Philly 9-05-08 clocking in at 14:15 (with some crown noise added in), but I think the middle is a little different from the others I've heard.

Yes!  Thanks Tenn.  I think that was the first time we heard the "Neil Young"ish rif in the middle.  Repeated again in Berkely?
