Hey Courtney,
High Tide or Low Tide was the song JJ/BH did together. It is a Bob Marley song and it can be found on Catch a Fire.
Take care.

It is me again, sorry. I just wanted to add that Ben & the IC's need to come to Virginia more often...I think a lot of people that had never even heard of Ben last night, would highly agree.

Wow...I don't know where to begin! This was my 3rd show as well, saw them open up for DMB a couple of years ago at RFK and it rained the whole damn time. Saw them that same year in November in Richmond, VA and it rained as we were leaving. Last night I prayed it wouldn't rain even though we were lucky enough to have seats. It just wouldn't be the same seeing them if the weather wasn't messed up! Haha. Ok, enough rambling about the weather, my favorite moments were The Woman In You and With My Own Two Hands. Most of the show Ben stood up, and it was different, the band had a hell of a lot of energy last night. I have never seen Ben get up and play drums, so that was sweet too. And this time I finally got to see the 2 encores, even though my sis left, I stayed and made her wait in the car. Beautiful, just an all in all beautiful night. If anyone knows the song Ben & Jack sang together please post it here when you get a chance, I'd greatly appreciate it! Oh, and did anyone tape the show?

A mighty tip of the hat to Ben, Jack and Kid Koala for creating a great vibe last night! Sadly, I missed KK's show (we came up as he was joking about "who booked this guy playing records...," but I'll be sure to look into it. Jack: Thanks for the "Farther On Down the Road"-you should do more with it. Ben: WOW. A good friend of mine always tried to get me to go see you in DC when you'd come to town, but I didn't because I was SLACK. Man, keep it up-I don't want to miss a show. You even won over the guy shouting "Freebird." Pure magic, Ben. Please come around this way again! IRIE, JPB

Simply said, OUTSTANDING!! This is my 3rd BHIC show and this one was the best yet. Great setlist (although I didn't write it down to submit), great energy by the band, and the PTown crowd was into it!! And the weather couldn't have been better. Pure magic!

Ben Harper Rocks like no other I have seen! He's a Jimi Hendrix/Bob Marley hybrid and I absolutely love him. I danced on the lawn at the Portsmouth show but would've paid double to dance in the orchestra pit. An awesome performer. For those who left after the first "ending" - you missed 45 minutes of rocking emotion including "Whole Lotta Love" by Zeppelin. Don't miss this tour if you can help it!
