5-0 out of 5 stars wilco songs come to life
If you are a fan of Wilco, and especially if you have never seen them live then you must own this cd! With a set list based largely on "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" and "A Ghost is Born," you might not think of buying this. YHF is a love-or-hate album, and maybe not the best intro to this band since it's more experimental than their previous work. But the songs really come alive and take on a new dimension when they are played live. Wilco is a really tight band. I had always loved them but when I saw them live for the first time (twice in the same week in New Orleans on the Ghost tour,) I was blown away. The first few times I heard Ghost, it fell a little flat, maybe because I had anticipated it so much and it didn't seem to have quite the same edge as YHF. But hearing the Ghost songs live has really changed my opinion and now I love that record equally, if not more than the other Wilco records. Certain songs really jump out as my favorites here: "Misunderstood," "Via Chicago," (a song they have played countless times but this version really grabs me...) and surprisingly "Company in My Back" and "Hell is Chrome," 2 songs I hadn't thought much of before. I'm going to see Wilco again very soon, thankfully they are on tour again! If you can't catch a show, check out this record, it will give you an idea of why their live shows are so acclaimed.

4-0 out of 5 stars I love this band
This is a great live cd which showcases the amazing talent of the band.
5-0 out of 5 stars As good as being there
This album clearly defines why Wilco is the best band touring today or any day. The connection that Tweedy makes with the audience is crystal clear, as is the harmonious instrumentation that this current line-up display. Each musician in the band is a virtuoso in his own right, and Nels Cline sharp guitar is a welcome addition indeed. I usually don't like live albums, as the audience noise is a distraction, but it is clear on this recording that the audiecne was too much in awe to get in the way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dark, gritty honky tonk music
I've never really been a big fan of Lucinda but wanted to give this Fillmore release a chance.Glad I did.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not sure what to say
This is a good live recording, but owning better live bootlegs of hers, and having attended better concerts of hers makes me wonder who decided what got put in this release and why?It took me a long time to shell out the bucks for this, and had I read the reviews on Amazon first, I probably would have spent the money on something else.Lucinda still makes me weak in the knees and I'll still buy the studio stuff and certainly keep going to the shows.The Fillmore might be legendary, but her performances in Houston far exceed what transpired on these San Francisco nights.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing...
When I first heard "Change the Locks", I could not believe my ears. This is one of the most thrilling live recordings I've ever heard. Yeah, her singing is raw and yet you can hear every syllable. Just the way she sings "change-the...CAAAARRRRRRR I drive" blows my socks off.

Okay, so the last track is a little weird, maybe I just don't get it. But this really is a phenomenal CD by a woman to whom the Britney's, Christina's and other blonde bimbos could learn a thing or two. Suggest to anyone that's a fan of the Blues, Gospel, or just good rockin' music. Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Neko wuvs tigers - awwwwww
There are a few songs here that absolutely make me hair stand on end, it's unbelievable. The first track is true perfection and evocative of a great, epic western soundtrack. Then there is the fantastic old time country gospel of This Little Light which is electrifying. As far as sound quality: if anything, it adds to the "classic" feel found in vintage live recordings of the 70's. It's good AS IS. What is it about tigers that resonates with Neko? I envision a day when she performs these songs on stage with live tigers going berzerk in cages on each side of the stage. She could walk up to one of them, and the tiger would flash his paw through the bars, angry that he/she is being subjected to the loud noise, the audience. She could even bring a stool and sit next to the caged feline and serenade it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Her Best
Of all her albums (including Fox Confessor...), this is the best. First, it's staggering that her voice can be as amazing live as it is on the studio albums; really, it's something special. Second, her 'magnetism' comes out much more in the live recording than it does in the studio albums. When I listen to the studio albums I feel like something is missing; what is on this album is exactly what's missing. It's like the difference between a Grateful Dead live album versus a Grateful Dead studio album (well, maybe not that severe, but you get the point.)

Editorial Review

Todd Snider really knows how to work a room. As a storytelling troubadour for the slacker set, he takes inspiration from the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker (as he explains in one of this solo concert album's deadpan introductions) and Robert Earl Keen and applies it to a selection of shaggy-dog stories, talking blues, and slices-of-life gone askew.One of his earliest signature tunes, "Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," has now outlived grunge by too long, but the more recent "Waco Moon," inspired by the death of guitartist Eddy Shaver, shows that Snider's songwriting is good for a whole lot more than laughs. Some of his most engaging songs such as "Beer Run" seem to have practically written themselves, while others such as "Tension" and "Statistician's Blues" sound like songs that were just waiting to be written. It's an integral part of Snider's engaging appeal that he makes it all seem so effortless. As with Keen, the challenge for Snider is balancing the easy laughs with his more serious progression as a songwriter. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic album
No doubt this is the coming together of two brilliant musicians at a moment in time which has produced the most brilliant album which has clearly started a movement.Every song is brilliant.Sensational buy this before any other alt country album its the best

5-0 out of 5 stars American and Essential
This is a fine roots album if ever there was one.Before Wilco, before Son Volt, there was Uncle Tupelo.And of all the Uncle Tupelo discs, this, in my mind, stands supreme.The songs alternate vocals between Jeff Tweedy and Jar Farrar.Farrar, in his preacher's baritone, tends to sing more politically oriented songs, songs of the early twentieth century, socialist songs focusing on coal miners unionizing or the ills of capitalism on the small man.Farrar's version of Moonshiner is like a priceless relic suspended in amber.Tweedy (his voice sounds younger and more contemporary than Farrar) also tackles some good old Americana in "I wish my Baby was Born" and "Satan, Your Kingdom must Come Down."Overall Tweedy leans more toward the personal and emotional while Farrar seems more comfortable with traditional ballads.Most of the songs are traditional tunes - folk songs, blues songs, spirituals.The guitar work is strong, with both men playing acoustic to fill out the sound.On some songs there are mandolin and violin - but it's really an acoustic guitar driven record.The band does a superb job of capturing the timelessness of the older music, and does well to blend their tunes with such a venerable canon.This is folk music as it was meant to be - raw, intense, masculine, topical.There is nothing cheesy on this record - and "Atomic Power" is probably the standout cut on the disc.Buy this music - you won't be disappointed - I guarantee!

5-0 out of 5 stars Do not miss this one
If you are looking for one of the best Alt Country / Americana (whatever those are) CDs ever created this is it.Look no further.These guys were the masters of it.With so much crap on the radio, its nice to look back in time and find some real gems if you are willing to branch out and spend some $$.This album will lead you to buy CDs from Son Volt, Wilco, and Jay solo.A must for the critical music lover. ...

Editorial Review

Outside of Texas, it's hard to grasp the Beatlemania-like frenzy that can be directed toward these marginally successful singer-songwriters. At a packed Texas honky-tonk such as Gruene Hall, however, the brothers Robison and adopted kin Jack Ingram go over like the Second Coming, which doesn't mean they don't earn the reception. The three Texans take no chances with material--everything but Ingram's "Travis County" has been cut elsewhere--and deliver their most anthemic and popular tunes in straight-shooting, full-band, Outlaw country style. Small flourishes save these 12 songs (recorded one night in December 1999) from abject predictability: Bruce's Western swing version of Joe Dickens's "Good Life," his wife Kelly Willis's sweet guest harmonies on "Angry All the Time," and Charlie's self-deprecating tone on "Sunset Boulevard." Unfortunately, Ingram turns in four of his slighter tunes, including the obnoxious frat-brat anthem "Barbie Doll," which only makes the call-and-response of his audience all the more suspect. But if you've never experienced Texas frat-country hysteria first hand, this live set will get you more than close enough to the party. Read more

Hey, I drove a tractor trailer for a living for 15 years and I can curse with the best of them. So, I'm no prude.3-0 out of 5 stars Marginal Live Frat-Country CD
I received an advance copy of this CD, and it's a good thing. I wouldn't pay for it. The best performances here are those of Charlie Robison's "Sunset Boulevard" and Brother Bruce Robison/Kelly Willis' collaborations, particularly "Angry All The Time." Ingram has not reached the songwriting competency level of the other performers, so his material is not as listenable as the rest. This music simply is not as important or as good as the music of fellow Texas songwriting alumni Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, or Guy Clark. Indeed, of almost greater importance is the ambience of Gruehn Hall, which can render almost anyperformance memorable.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good sampler, Buy CDs from all 3 instead
A live sampler of four songs each from brothers Charlie and Bruce Robison and fellow Sony/Lucky Dog labelmate Jack Ingram, this release provides a good introduction to all three artists.With the exception of "Travis County" by Ingram these songs are all available in studio versions.Diehard fans will want to have the CD to capture the feel of seeing these performers live.Someone not familiar with the artists may be inclined to purchase this CD to sample all three performers for the price of a single CD.If you like one, it's extremely unlikely you won't like all three, buy CDs from each instead.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars From a whisper to a scream
A great album.Of course it doesn't capture the pure, raging range of Escovedo's live shows, but it comes close.(And in any event, what one album possibly could?Of the ten best concerts I've ever seen, nine of them were Escovedo, and virtually all of those featured a different instrument line-up, from 7-piece punk ensemble to string quartet.)Besides, the cover of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" is virtually an out of body experience.

4-0 out of 5 stars the next best thing
this album is only a shadow of what alejandro escovedo is like live. his music is moving...he has a gift that enables him to really touch your soul when you here him. overall, a very good album. if you are lucky enough to have him visit your town, please give him a listen...it will be entirely worthwhile.

4-0 out of 5 stars too bad about the money, al
really nice disk from austin-based alt.country rocker alejandro escovedo.actually, the alt.country label may be both overly confining and misleading:escovedo started out as a punk (the nuns) and subsequently moved through a variety of bands includingpunk-country (rank&file) new romantic (the troobs) revivalist (buick mckane). his bands often feature strings (as in violin and cello).so what we've got is a middle-aged singer-songwriter with a punk background and string players in his band. uh-huh.Read more

Editorial Review

Though Dave Alvin's reputation rests with his songwriting, the dynamismof this live recording puts the pedal to the metal and leaves the studioversions of much of this material in the dust. Highlights range from anine-minute medley of Alvin's "Little Honey" andBo Diddley's "Who Do YouLove" to the honky-tonk country of "Highway 99" to the raucous celebration of"American Music" that has been Alvin's anthem since his days with theBlasters. Not sinceCreedence'sJohn Fogerty has aroots rocker mined such a rich vein of Americana, though material such as"Haley's Comet," "Blue Boulevard," and "Wanda and Duane" find Alvin'shard-bitten lyricism growing increasingly dark as it matures. While hishalf-spoken, half-sung vocals lack the nuance of the best of his songwriting, akiller band featuring drummer Bobby Lloyd Hicks and keyboardist Joe Terryprovides propulsive support for his stinging guitar.

As a full-time road warrior, it's no surprise that Alvin's confluence of music, philosophy and work ethic is captured so vividly on these live recordings. Steeped in rock, blues, folk, and country, Alvin's decidedly non-Hollywood California viewpoint is born from the grit of a working man's life, and fueled by the endless miles in between countless road gigs.4-0 out of 5 stars + 1/2 Stars...Alvin Is a First-Rate Songwriter
Dave Alvin has released only two studio albums since his last live album (1996's equally enjoyable Interstate City), but Alvin said in a local newspaper interview before an Omaha appearance that his favorite thing to do is to play before a live audience."There are things that happen when we play live--intense musical things that are just about impossible to capture in the studio for whatever reason."4-0 out of 5 stars why isn't this guy a star?

5-0 out of 5 stars A "LIVE" masterpiece
This CD is an ablolute "must have" for fans of Texas music and/or Guy Clark.If you are not a fan of either now, you will be a fan of both after listening to "Keepers."You will understand why native as well as naturalized Texans describe their state more as a state-of-mind rather than a geographical location.Its sort of a Zen thing.Enjoy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a keeper
One of life's greatest joys is a Guy Clark performance. Though I left Nashville shortly before the one recorded here, I listened to Mr. Clark play every dive in town for 20 years, sometimes sick, sometimes overly fortified with alcohol, and he was always the consummate showman. As such, the idea of a live recording was very appealing to me. The result, however, is a little disappointing.5-0 out of 5 stars Texas Without Being There
Guy Clark is the unofficial music ambassador for the great state of Texas.His songs are simple and straightforward tackling the always tough relationship department and lightweight subjects like eggs, tomatoes,chili,trainsand his home state. ( "Texas 1947", "Texas Cookin" & "South Coast Of Texas" )He's also intelligent when it comes to a live recording, putting together a great band which includes brilliant sideman - Verlon Thompson.Guy is definitely ON this night balencing songs, stories and laughter.The album literally brings Texas to my home until I can make the next visit.The purists seem to like his first two LP's found on "Essential", the critics pick is "Boats To Build", but the real Guy Clark is "Live" and this one is for the "Keepers". ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Enough Stars in the Universe to Rate this Album
As a son of the South Plains that was transplanted to VA, I grew up on stories of Joe and the Lubbock gang, Tornado Jams, Stubbs-the original, etc. Unfortunately chances to see Joe, to say nothing of Jesse or Lloyd, are always few and far between in these parts, but thankfully Live @ Antone's captures this group, along with Teye and the incredible Joel Guzman, at their very best. No studio accurately captures the energy and furry with which this group plays, and if this album doesn't give you chills then you may want to check your pulse. Chances are that if you're reading this then the songs are familiar and there's no need to go into detail. All that really can be said is, BUY THIS ALBUM!

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning CD!!!
I've been a casual listener of Country music for the last decade or so. I've generally preferred artists like Dwight Yoakum and Mary Chapin Carpenter, "tweeners" that don't always get the airplay on today's country radio airwave stations (thankfully, satellite radio has solved that, with channels like XCountry on XM Radio). Every so often over the last few years I'd hear a song by Joe Ely and make a mental note to keep an ear out for more of his stuff. A few weeks back, I heard the live version of Gallo del Cielo on XM Radio ... it was the first time I'd ever heard the song and loved it. Literally the next day I got an e-mail from Amazon for Joe Ely's Millenium Collection (you know the old "based on your past purchases, we thought you might like this" e-mail). I bought that CD and, after reading several of the reviews here, rolled the dice and bought Live at Antone's. I can't recall ever buying two CDs at once for an artist I was previously unfamiliar with. It was an excellent move!!! I've probably listened to the Live at Antone's 30+ times already, and it gets better and better.From the opening song on, this album flat-out impresses. Gallo del Cielo is a classic "crank the volume and sing along and I don't care what the people in the car next to me think" song. Ranches and Rivers, Road Goes on Forever, All Just to Get to You, Me and Billie the Kid, Up on the Ridge, Everybody got Hammered ... they're all wonderful songs, perfect for his voice, and accompanied by a top-notch band. If you like to roll the dice every once in a while and take a reach on a new (to you) artist, start with this CD. ... Read more

Editorial Review

On September 13, 1995, this like-minded triumvirate of country-folk singer-songwriters joined forces for a good old-fashioned song swap. The music's warmth and relaxed vibe make it sound like it was recorded on someone's back porch in Texas as opposed to Nashville's Bluebird Café. Pulled together for an Interfaith Dental Clinic benefit by Guy Clark's wife Susanna, the three old friends sing songs and tell stories in an intimate acoustic-and-a-stool atmosphere in front of an appreciative audience--what more can you ask for when you have such compelling songwriters? The ravenous cult fans of these artists will want to add these delightful performances to their collections, but newcomers will get an engaging and useful primer on the modern Texas troubadour style.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great company for lonely nights
Townes Van Zandt's performance on this album made me appreciate his earlier recordings all the more, but he was still my favorite of the three.Hearing him do "Pancho and Lefty" in that rusty old voice made me weep, and his monologue about having a gold tooth extracted as a gambling debt made me laugh till I wept.It means even more now, knowing that this was very likely one of his last public appearances.
5-0 out of 5 stars 3 Brilliant Songwriters in a Relaxed Setting
Did you ever wonder what would happen if three of America's best songwriters got together to share songs and stories? This disk answers the question. Earle, Van Zandt and Clark are arguably among the best songwriters this country has to offer (Texas branch) and on this disk they share their songs with each other in round-robin fashion before a very small audience. Stripped of studio arrangements, the three performers proudly display their wares for what they are - classic songs that ought to last long after the songwriters are dead and gone.
2-0 out of 5 stars Why songwriters are not always good performers
When I first saw this cd, I thought "This has got to be great!"

Editorial Review

Wayne "The Train" keeps a-rollin' as the Austin honky-tonk hero struts his stuff in live sessions on his home turf, energizing the dancers and putting a smile on the face of anyone who prefers country music with an old-fashioned kick. The ex-Marine is a hard-core country traditionalist, but his devotion to swing--Western and otherwise--gives his honky-tonk fluidity. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Swingtime is Swing'n
Wayne and the band are having a great time with their music and all throughout this record you can hear that the crowd loves it too.
4-0 out of 5 stars very addictive
I recently disovered the wonders of Accuradio and, in particular, the station TWANG. It is awesome. There are a few CD's that are in heavy rotation other than Johnny Cash or Willie Nelson. This is one of them, and for good reason. It sounds new and old, and Wayne's voice does have an uncanny resemblance to a certain Hank Williams. The music has this quality that you rarely hear of being familiar and completely unique at the same time. Hat's off to the band for making it sound oh so easy. It's toe tapping heaven.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fun, relaxed live set
A great live set recorded down in Austin by hard-country hero Wayne The Train Hancock and his band, featuring Dave Biller on guitar, a bit of trombone tootling by Bob "Texaco" Stafford, and solid, lively backing by all the others.From the album title, I had expected Hancock to indulge his interest in jazz-standards and swing, but I ain't complaining that this is a strait-up country album instead -- not by a longshot!Really, it's amazing to hear anyone playing such as rough and rowdy, yet accomplished and historically aware kinda country these days, and this disc captures the energy and charm of Hancock's live shows pretty well.High points include his new version of "Thunderstorms And Neon Signs," which may actually outdo the original -- overall, another top-notch release!Highly recommended. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the 3 or 4 Dwight Yoakam albums you need to own
Even if you have his greatest hits, the Reprise box set, or albums containing the studio versions of these songs, this live album is STILL a MUST. The energy and musicianship, not mention Dwight's own incomparable vocals, are fantatsic. And there are great live versions of songs you can't find anywhere else, like Rocky Road Blues, Fast As You, Long White Cadillac, Two Doors Down and more. Whether you're just now catching on to the genius and talent of DY's music, or are already a fan with lots of his albums, this is one you won't regret owning. It'd certainly one of my top 3 favorites.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Debbil Himself Stirring up the Rabble
Now, if this doesn't stop you, nothing -will-... unless you're truly the adventurous sort. I am -not- a country music fan. I'm not even a Dwight -fan- (unless I'm seated in front of a stage he is -on- or a movie he is -in-.) I admit to being a rocker, and a -progressive rocker- at that.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid
I feel that negative reviews are almost always an exaggeration, and it is surely the case here.Jay Farrar is the alt-country love child people seem to love to hate.But they love to hate him because they just loved Son Volt (and Uncle Tupelo) so much. That's history folks.And face it, he's talented and has the voice that hundreds of men try to emulate.This album is certainly not a clone of Son Volt's, but he's not doing Son Volt stuff here.It's a solid album, and worth having in your collection.Listen for yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars From a reviewer that grew up near Farrar
There are some brilliant reviews here, and some that completely miss the point.I grew up about ten minutes away from Farrar's hometown, and I really fear some reviewers cannot understand the context from which he writes.Imagine the "rust belt", where factories have closed, people have moved away, and sprawl has crept in.You have our hometown area.The song Cahokian, which another reviewer took to task, is especially poignant to anyone familiar with the area.He speaks of the mounds, one being a HUGE ceromonial mound built by native americans which still stands today.The other, a landfill, visible from the first mound, stands across from a motor sports racetrack.The fact that Farrar recognizes this and chooses to speak on it, I believe, shows the consciousness that makes me love his music.If you like this slant, you should really check out March "16-20, 1992".This album completely forshadowed Tupelo's split, with noticable "tweedy songs" and "farrar songs", with Farrar's being of the social consciousness ilk.Please, continue to check out Farrar's solo work, Trace and Wide Swing Tremolo (not a big fan of much else son volt), and any Tupelo you can get your hands on.I should also add, quickly, some favorite songs from S,S,& BL.Please pay attention to Medicine Hat, Six String Belief, and Greenwich Time.Thanks for your time!

2-0 out of 5 stars Please someone tell me where else I can find this song
I have heard this whole CD and it's nothing special. One song is very good and I do wish to have it. It is the first song, "Things don't have to be this way". I do want that song but don't want to have to pay for this very ordinary CD to get it. I have not been able to find where else it is so if someone knows I would sure appreciate you pointing me towards it. Thanks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Steve is in the groove here
His songs here shoot from the heart and can be oh so related to. His political stancing is done in fine form through song and some dialogue with the audience. The album is chock full of good stuff to listen, it also sounds good in the process.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Window In Time
If you've been fortunate enough to see/hear live Steve Earle over the years, then you know how much his live sound has evolved.This disc presents a pretty good picture of where Steve and the Dukes were at in late '02 into early '03: telling it as they saw the truth to be and not pulling a single punch.Sure, there are loads of people that don't want to hear politics blended into music, so you'll find plenty of scathing reviews for this set.I find it difficult to be too critical of Earle's positions, because he presents them from a knowledgeable perspective and he is no doubt a patriot.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice live music, but sounds a lot like the studio versions
This is a nice album of early live hits at Austin City Limits. The only draw back is many of the songs sound very similar to to the studio versions. Compared to the DVD (which I liked better) much of the dialog with the audience was cut out of the CD. Dwight fans will like this, but it's hard to recommend it to anyone else. It's okay, but nothing spectacular. Dwight's other live album is much better and easier to reccomend. A newer Dwight Yoakam live album would have been a better CD by New West Records.

5-0 out of 5 stars Straight out of Dwight's good ole' days!!!!!
I love this album.It features Dwight singing in his pristine 80s vocals, which I consider his height.This is the best live album I own.It'sa smokin' good deal at 14 bucks for this vintage Austin City Limits 1988 treasure that has been newly released from New West Records.The only drawbacks for me is that it didn't have my favorite song on it "Long White Cadillac", which he probably hadn't recorded yet anyway.This is a perfect collection of his early and best work live. ...
