HEY NOW! My first GD show is represented, FINALLY! 6/28/92 Deer Creek! And I enjoy LWTGH unlike some others.

The one gripe I have: they can include Samba, but no Broken Arrow or Wave to the Wind - A HUNTER COMPOSITION?!?! Why the Phil snub?!?! I understand that Broken Arrow is a cover, but still. No Childhood's End or If the Shoe Fits, I suppose I don't mind, but I do like Wave to the Wind! Did Phil snub them for this release? Come on guys! What's the deal?

Disc five of the So Many Roads box set is the rehearsal/studio versions of all those "new songs", minus Samba and Easy Answers, which is actually a Ratdog tune that sounds really sweet with Kenny' s saxophone.

So glad they’re doing this...finally a release of that one last grate album we all knew was coming. I just ordered. And patch...D Lemieux suggested a 2nd album down the road with the other batch of 90’s songs, including some of the covers. But I gotta say...Wave to the Wind is literally the only GD song I can’t do. Just can’t do it. Glad you dig tho!

I like Wave To The Wind. I'm definitely getting this. No, the 90s were not the greatest period in GD history but these songs bring back some very fond memories.

Agree...these were / are grate songs. That last record that never was. And now this release with live takes. Bravo :clap

I was at
3/30/95 Samba
6/23/92 SMR
9/13/93 Easy Answers

TBH, when the new songs started popping up on Tour i was resistant to all but one and then a few grew on me and the rest....well you know what my mom would say. :lol:

I was at Easy Answers and I may have been at Liberty. Some of those NYC shows are a real blur!

Long way hone on some nights had the energy that kick started the set like blow away or pockey way did. Vince had some pretty big shoes to fill after Brent and IMHO did great.
The missing Phil songs may have to do with copywriter issues? Idk
