Ween Showcases Their ‘12 Golden Country Greats’ In Nashville Opener [Full Audio]

first_imgLast night, Ween kicked off their first of two nights at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The alternative-rock ensemble billed the mid-week run as an opportunity to perform their fifth studio album, 12 Golden Country Greats, which they recorded in Nashville in 1995.Following an opening set from The Sh*t Creek Boys, the dynamic duo of Dean Ween and Gene Ween led the band through 20+ songs surrounding the ten-track album’s core. “Japanese Cowboy”, “Piss Up A Rope” (which featured The Sh*t Creek Boys), “Powder Blue”, “Fluffy” and the rest of 12 Golden Country Greats served as the evening’s centerpiece, with the rest of the band’s illustrious catalog keeping the band on track during their quick transitions and energetic segues.While the order of the album’s tracklisting was not incorporated, the theme of 12 Golden Country Greats served as the connective tissue for a great night of Ween. Rarities like”I Don’t Want To Leave You On The Farm” (which has only been performed by Ween ten times since 1996) and “Pretty Girl” (which had not been performed by Ween since 10/28/96) made the night’s theme even more exciting.Outside of the album’s tracks, Ween re-introduced their cover of “Chariots of Fire” by Vangelis in the second-song slot, which had not been played since 1996. After performing Pure Guava‘s “I Saw Gener Cryin’ In His Sleep”, the band transitioned with a tease of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Sound of Silence” into “The Argus”, an original from 2003’s Quebec.Thanks to taper boognish666, you can listen to Ween’s full show from last night in the audio below:Ween – Ryman Auditorium – Nashville, TN – 10/16/18[Audio: boognish666]Watch The Sh*t Creek Boys perform “Piss Up A Rope” with Ween in the video below:Ween feat.
