    We all know about these bands.

    Who did you prefer as far as songwriters?

    I prefer the songwriting of the Arc Angels as well as the guitar work. Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II were a terrific pair of guitarists. Too bad that they couldn't gel as a band though.

    I dig both bands. However, I listen to Storyville more often. Mostly due to DG and MM. Malford just oozes soul when he sings.

    "Cynical" is one of my all time fave tunes, so I have to vote Storyville. MM makes it for me.

    I've got to go with the Arc Angels. Went to their 1st and 2nd shows, their SXSW showcase, and most any time they played in town. Malford has a new band called Big Cat. Roscoe Beck and Dave Sebree are in the band. Dave plays a TGP approved 1959 Les Paul through a Dumble. Check em out. http://www.bigcataustin.com/

    They gelled fine until heroin addiction brought DBII down.

    Arc Angels! Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall were perfect together. It's amazing to think how they've each backed up some of the biggest artists in the world as sidemen (Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, among others).

    If your gonna limit it to songwriting, I gotta go with Storyville. That first album had "Good day for the Blues" and "What passes for Love". GDFTB is simply a classic. You could bust that out right now and I would crank it.

    Not even close for me.

    Doyle and Charlie, both excellent singers, writers and superb guitarists. Additionally, everything they did vocally and guitar-wise meshed together in a great way. Plus, I much prefer the Arc Angels rhythm section as well.

    Love em both, but storyville was literally a life changer for me. Completely changed my approach and 'plan' as a guitar player when I heard the 'piece of your soul' album.

    Malford is my favorite singer living right now. Just amazing.
    Holt and Grissom? Holy ****.

    Taking nothing away from Doyle and Charlie. they're great, and I love A/A as well.

    I like 'em both. Grissom is one of my favorite guitarists, but the Arc Angels record was killer, especially at the time. Kind of a throwback, in the age of hair metal.

    I've seen both bands live and I prefer ArcAngels... I saw Grissom with Ely and preferred that to Storyville. And I really like Storyville.

    Nod to solo Charlie Sexton being my fave over Storyville and AA. But, that "Good Day for the Blues" from ACL? What a freakin' song and performance.

    I like them both, but I love the first Arc Angels album, in fact I own something like four copies of it on vinyl and CD. Charlie Sexton's vocals always knock me out, and he and Doyle were a great combination until heroin took over. I do like Storyville quite a bit too for Malcolm's vocals and the guitar work between Holt and Grissom.

    I liked Arc Angels pretty well, but thought Storyville was reeeally boring. Love Grissom's playing in many contexts, but I guess I just don't dig Malford Milligan. I can't think of anything he's ever done that I like.

    Great clip. Thanks for posting it. Holt kicked my ass with that solo.
