Show Review:

"Hello Houston, I Think it's time for some Homemade Music Tonight!" and with that the "Year of still here" tour kicked off in fine fashion. "Homemade Music" did indeed get us started, the first outing for it since June 30, 1989 in Auburn Hills, Michigan. How's that for rare? "The Tiki Bar is Open," the great John Hiatt song, followed that, with Jimmy working in a nice reference to his lost friend, Larry Gray, who "sailed the seven seas." "Fruitcakes" came next, with lots of new updated lyrics, including references to Dr. Phil and thinking the astronauts for all the work they do. Jimmy then introduced us to the new $35 Coral Reefer outfits before launching into "Mexico," last played in Portland, Oregon on October 27, 2005. Following that, Jimmy said this next song wasn't meant to offend any doctors, and then lead the band through a beautiful version of "Miss You So Badly," last played with the band on June 3, 1996 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Jimmy was no longer watching "The Gong Show" and waiting for "Zoro" but instead it was watching "South Park" and his "Crackberry" had gone dark. Nice. A song later, Jimmy introduced to a brand new song, inspired by Neil Young called, what else, "Where Still Here." The almost biographical song was a nice tribute to everyone who still comes every year. A song later, Jimmy offered up his defense for hurricanes with "Tryin' to Reason with Hurricane Season." The second set started with the Nanci Griffith song "Gulf Coast Highway," A song Jimmy first recorded with Evangeline in the early 90's. This performance featured Tina Gullickson and was very nice. Nadirah's version of "Makin' Music for Money" followed that. In the middle of the second set's run of hits, "Far Side of the World" re-surfaced for the first time since August 21, 2004 at a John Kerry for President Benefit. The encores brought the first on tour outing of "Somewhere Over China" since the Millenium show, and a beautiful version of Come Monday to wrap things up.

Ratings:

Set List: A. Some nice old ones brought back out, but the second half lacked surprises.

Show: A. Jimmy nailed most everything.

Song of the Night: "Miss You So Badly" was a knock-out.

Overall: A. Great way to start what looks to be a Great tour.

I hope this show actually has some thought put into it instead of the run through the hits that every other show this year has had. Seems like the first show is hit or miss, sometimes it's one of the best of the tour (2003-2005) or not so good (2006 and 2007).

Well, things are looking good now. RM is doing rehersal reports and some titles so far include:

Homemade Music (I've wanted to hear this so BAD)
Cowboy in the Jungle (Ditto)
Migration
Ragtop Day
Mexico
Stars on the Water
Fruitcakes
Thank God the Tiki Bar is Open
And...

A acoustic set with something from Nadirah's album of Buffett covers

"Landfall" has also been rehersed. I can't imagine that one working without Fingers, but who knows. I do know it hasn't been played since February 1998.

The time above is actually wrong, this show will be starting around 8 central and 9 eastern due to Houston being on Central time.
