In Memory of Elisabeth Reed

Does anyone know if there exists a recording of MP playing this Allman song?
I remember hearing it in Bergen 99, extreme playing by Gebhardt...

We actually have a searchable database of setlists, but it's defunct, since one person has to keep it updated. It shows many versions by Motorpsycho in 99.

A good substitute is The Allman Brothers at Fillmore East. A good livealbum! But i guess you allready got it if you remembered hearing it in 99.

The first time Motorpsycho played this song was in Oslo on October 15th 1999. This gig was recorded. It was played in Bergen October 23rd 1999, too (both Bergen shows were recorded, too).

It was played on a lot of Tussler shows, too, especially in 2003 and 2004.

Does anyone know where to het hold of these recordings! I think the first gig in Bergen is the best of the 22 shows I've been to.

My impression is that this recording shows MP at the peek of their career. They said in an interview that playing with BÃ¥rd made it a lot more fun playing old tunes again. Having in mind that they for some years had travelled Norway and Europe with a "pretending to be be unpredcitable" image. In my opininon the only nonpredictable thing about their shows in 98 and 99 was for how long they could play K9, and how much psaudo-kraut-noise they were able to make. Chewing the cuds of old glory (original versions of magnificient Un chien and Wheel) Quite a relief when BÃ¥rd came along and added spice to the otherwise solid rythmic / organic base of the band. That's when they really became unpredictable, shows could be both Grateful-jamming, psychedelic and prog. at the same time
I appriciate some parts of LLM, but unfortunately I also think it points back to some tendences they had during the 98 - 99 era.

true. i remember thinking this too in '99. when their show was pretty much the same in terms of sound and attitude as in '98. due no new studio album out probably. but they played blueberry daydream and taifun as starters though. that was killer.

then in 2000 it started with a 40min K9 suite followed by 2 hours of straight songs, songs and songs. hardly any hippie or space jams. i really dug this kind of set for a change.


and thanx a lot to jtr smiling smiley

I kinda agree. The concert I saw at Rockefeller April 2002 was easily the
best damn gig I've ever seen (regardless of artist). The other Spring 2002
boots I have are of very high quality too. So I think that tour was underrated, and among the all-time best.

The Halden gig actually features the longest version of Liz Reed that MP did live.
