They also play OAD and Daryl's "Dont Leave Me Alone With Her".  The latter I thought was the highlight of the show, song gets jammed out and Ben has a great jazzy solo.  Daryl seems genuinely excited at the end of the song.  I personally think the arrangements get a bit overblown in this setting and I'm not necessarily a fan of how they trade lines in each verse.  Still, the best part about this show (and any other episode of Live at Daryl's House if you've never seen it before) is how much fun these guys are having, it really does capture the fun of bunch of guys just jamming in a garage.

Learned something new about Annie Waits too.  Ben says the song was written on an Omnichord while he was in Australia and was inspired by some Australian film about a bunch of old ladies sitting around playing bingo who "seem to be waiting for something."  Hadn't heard that one before.  Edit: having now looked up what an Omnichord is, I'm pretty sure it's what's making the drum beat and synth sounds at the end of the studio recording.

I saw an artist named Meaghan Smith a few years ago play an Omnichord live and spent the next couple months tracking one down a used one on eBay.  After messing around with it for quite a while, I came to recognize the distinct sounds it makes and was surprised not only to hear it in Annie Waits but also The Bens version of Wicked Little Town (most noticeable right at the beginning, but the Omnichord chords continue throughout the whole song).

It's certainly novel to hear a full band backing Ben's songs. I enjoyed hearing him sing/play on Daryl's songs too.  One of my favourites from the show archives is when Sharon Jones stopped by.

I saw this was going on and once again damned my bad luck to live in the UK...

And these great recaps did nothing to make me feel better, :-\ until some kind soul put up 'Babs and Babs' as well as a stomping 'Don't Leave Me Alone With Her' (Piano slam FTW) on Youtube. But i am a greedy Brit and Need to see at LEAST OAD with that amazing band - Ben fit in with them like it was no biggie! I guess I shall keep waiting patiently.

Oh yes and ViaChicago - totally get what you mean with Daryl's excitement once they'd finished - truly lovely stuff.

Apparently they don't want Canadians to watch it either, but I used a great VPN service https://www.tunnelbear.com to watch the whole show. You can download it as an app or simply as a Chrome plug-in.  Worked better than a couple others I'd tried before.  The free service is only good for 500MB a month, but that's good enough to watch this show!

Glad it worked! I'm a librarian by profession and connecting people to information is what we do! (It's a little compulsive.)

i think that's just a link to his artist page? don't see a place to buy the episode, but it's nice to have the split up version of the episode on the site now.
