5-0 out of 5 stars Road Tour Music
This CD includes much of the music fromBela Fleck's road tour with Edgar Meyer.We heard them play in Easton, MD.The concert was excellent, and this CD captures their enthusiasm and playfulness in working together."Woolly Mammoth" is especially interesting.I highly recommend this CD to any fan of either of these artists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Endlessly inventive
As two of the most highly regarded technicians of their respective instruments, Bela Fleck and Edgar Meyer collaboration on "Music for Two" couldn't be anything less than inspiring. The duo exceed expectations by writing eloquent and evocative pieces. As I continue to listen to the album, their original compositions come to the fore as the marquee sections of the disc. The album could have been strengthened by shedding the veneer of classical music and relying solely on their original compositions.
5-0 out of 5 stars not bluegrass, but oh my!!!!
as a banjo playa and bluegrass fan that sometimes thinks that bela "noodles" a bit much, this album blows my mind. edgar and bela play with more power and authority than any ten metal bands, and their timing and dynamics are out of this world. i'm no fan of classical as such, but i found myself captivated by every song, and the fact that it's recorded live just adds to the awe factor. buy it now!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Rarities...an absolute gem
Great album, bringing together three of the great songwriter-poets of our time, who along with Blaze Foley constitute a world unto themselves. They got together to perform this benefit for a Dental Clinic! Townes even comments that he can't get dental (or any) insurance. All three are tight and brilliant, but the most heart rendering songs in this collection belong to Guy. The man is a treasure - he plays one of those guitars that he made himself (yes!!), it sounds beautiful..the same care and thoughtfulness is present in the songs..buy this...today!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Jerry Garcia and former Blue Grass Boys put on a good show
This awesome album combines the signature rough vocals of Jerry Garcia (who also plays banjo!) with the crisp mandolin sound of David Grisman, agile fiddling of Vassar Clements, and solid guitar of Peter Rowan in a collection that pulls heavily from the repertoire of Bill Monroe's old Blue Grass Boys. Bluegrass fans and Garcia fans alike will enjoy this enthusiastic live performance by Old and In the Way.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just gets better and better ...
I bought this album because it's considered a classic, and because I love the fiddle stylings of Vassar Clements. At first I was irked by some out-of-tune vocal harmonies (it's live, after all). But I kept the album on and set the CD player to continuous play. Well, the second time it started at the beginning, I was hooked. I listened a couple more times and had to force myself to turn it off. It is really a true gem of an album. Vassar's fiddling is top-notch, a great example of his classic licks and style. Garcia, Grisman and Rowan also rock. This is indeed a classic bluegrass album, and should be in any respectable collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Own It
You might call me a biased jamband fan, but YMSB's music cannot be denied. YMSB is a some sort of offspring of bluegrass, and their hard hitting lyrics and perfect delivery mesh well. They play with so much passion and energy, and they are a just plain fun to listen to. This a four member band headed by a mandolin(Jeff Austin), stand up bass(Ben Kaufman), Banjo(Dave Johnston), and acoustic guitar(Adam Aijala). They also had a special guest David Anger on the fiddle which added a nice touch to the band. This cd is massive and includes 23 tracks, with many of them spanning over 7 minutes. YMSB isn't a band that takes itself too seriously and throughout the cd they joke around and are hilarious. These songs are the best songs on the cd in order of importance.
5-0 out of 5 stars Able to incite a crowd to riotous support of jamgrass music
Playing Time - 55:25 (disc 1); 65:47 (disc 2)-- A large contingent of Yonder Mountain String Band fans were out in full force at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, Colorado in September 2003 for the live recording of this 23-track album at Kinfolk Celebration 2003. The band's distinctive jamgrass sound is supplemented with the expert fiddling of Darol Anger. Four tracks at the end of the 2-CD album also include Rashad Eggleston and Brittany Haas. Regular band members Jeff Austin (mandolin),Dave Johnston (banjo), Adam Aijala (guitar), and Ben Kaufmann (bass) all contribute original material to the band's spirited repertoire. Besides material from Willie Nelson,John Hartford, and Bill Monroe, the band also covers four songs penned by songwriter Benny "Burl" Galloway. The lyrical messages of their original material are interesting. Their material is well-rehearsed and arranged. Not sticking tostraight three-chord traditional progressions, YMSB punctuates and accentuates their music with a lot of excitement. The fun they have energizes their audiences.

Jerry Jeff is actually from New York but who cares.This is a great album and many of these songs are played at his concerts today.
4-0 out of 5 stars Best Jerry Jeff Walker Release
This is a cd I had as an album. When I was 13 years old (back in '75), an AOR station always played "Up against the Wall". I thought it was the coolest song, cuz it was like country and the AOR station played it a lot, so it must be cool if they played it. London Homesick Blues is great too. The cd goes from rocking country to slow songs seemlessly. It is a great mix of tempo. Jerry Jeff was pretty cool back then for being "a country singer".

Editorial Review

Because he was gone by age 27, any opportunity to hear Gram Parsons in action is worthwhile. This record was recorded in front of a studio audience and broadcast live on WLIR in New York in March of 1973, a mere six months before Parsons's untimely death. Most of the material comes from his two solo albums (now collected on one CD) and his groundbreaking work with the Byrds and Burritos. Still, there are a few noteworthy additions to the canon, namely an urgent reading of Merle Haggard's "California Cottonfields," a roughshod '50s-rock medley, and the relatively obscure sacred tune "Country Baptizing," which was written by North Carolina fiddler Jim Shumate, a onetime member of both Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys and then Flatt & Scruggs's Foggy Mountain Boys. Parsons's touring band, the Fallen Angels, play with fire and looseness, especially Neil Flanz on pedal steel, and, of course, the wonderful Emmylou Harris harmonizes ever so passionately with the lead Fallen Angel.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best way to remember Gram
For those of us who saw Gram on this tour, this is the record.Just a night or two before this was broadcast, Gram played almost the same set at Max's Kansas City--the only difference was his encore of Hank Williams's Jambalaya.What a night!I heard the original broadcast and taped it on a reel to reel and later transferred it to a cassette long before the complete concert was eventually issued.This is Gram.And Emmylou.And the touring band.Great songs and feeling that you don't find every day.Yea, I like the little that Gram left behind, but as far as live shows go, it beats the bootlegs of The Burritos or endless outtakes of the Reprise sessions.When I wish there were one more Gram Parsons album out there somewhere, I put this one on, and Gram lives.

5-0 out of 5 stars Most Listened To CD in my Collection
This is the album that turned me onto Gram Parsons and then the Flying Burrito Brothers. I came across this purely by accident but what a gem it is.A long time fan of Emmylou Harris I'm simply blown away by the energetic yet beautiful duet.About the only thing more I could wish for is this CD to be longer or have a second disc I could buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Live and at their peak
I would personally place this album ahead of GP and slightly behind Grievous Angel in quality of performance. I find the DJ chat interesting in what it reveals about the personalities of the musicians on that fabled tour. The band sounds generally tight and exuberant, and I think this reflects the fact that they had been on tour for several months and had reached a level of comfort with each other. Several of the cuts are superior to their versions on the studio albums, particularly Love Hurts, The New Soft Shoe, and That's All It Took. Gram's voice is smoother here than it often was on GP. As has been mentioned, Glanz' performance on steel guitar is terrific, and I think that tour guitarist Jock Bartley's rock sensibility compares favorably with Jimmy Burton's work on the studio sides.

Nicolette is known by the vast public for that one song written by Neil Young.But what a cover!It still blasts from the radio as stong as the day it was released.
5-0 out of 5 stars On great form
Everyone on this album is on great form and it's worth buying for Bonnie Raitt doing Love has no Pride which might just break your heart! Another stand out is CSN doing The Beatles In My Life. If you like these kind of artists then buy this album: you can't go wrong!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A LOT TO LOVE AND A LOT LEFT OUT
I attended both nights of concerts honoring the life and music of the late Nicolette Larson at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in February of 1998. The first night, I'd bought a ticket to the sold-out show from a scalper and enthralled, I watched the show from the tenth row. The second night, a member of the house band gave me a laminated all access pass and, enraptured (not hyperbole), I watched from the wings of the stage. A live release of the event had been long rumored, but after so many years had lapsed, I'd long since given up hope of ever seeing any keepsake of these wonderful performances surface, save for the roll of photos I snapped, the bootleg cassette that some rabid queen from Long Beach mailed to me later on,and the backstage stories I duly diarized when I got home that night. (It's not everyday that Mary Kay Place walks in on me when I'm standing at a urinal.) So at long last - arriving on Valentine's Day, no less - Nicolette is getting her due. This set boasts mainly the big hits - e.g., Ronstadt & Blue Bayou, Browne & Running on Empty, Buffett & Margaritaville (would have thought Come Monday a more appropriate choice, given the circumstances). But take it from one who was there: to pare down to a single disc, hard decisions had to be made and more magical moments somehow ended up on the cutting room floor, such as Ronstadt's spine-tingling take on Jimmy Webb's Adios, which mystifies me not just because it was vocal perfection (despite her onstage disclaimer that it was past her bedtime) but because its sentiment reflected the evening's most fitting tribute to her friend, former roommate, and singing sister. Emmylou Harris, who only appeared on the second of the two evenings, gave a brief dedication to Nicolette explaining why she selected Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, but that too was sadly omitted. Larson is remembered most for her biggest hit, Lotta Love, on which Carole King, Bonnie Raitt, and the astonishingly good Valerie Carter & Rosemary Butler trade off verses.[By the way, don't believe the liner notes: unless they were overdubbed later, Mary Kay Place,Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris do NOT sing on this track; diva-licious Ronstadt arrived at the SaMo Civic exactly at intermission, went onstage to do her three numbers in the second half and grudgingly stuck around for the ensemble finale of You've Got a Friend, after which she immediately BOLTED the premises.Notice that she is the only artist absent in the group photo.] Bonnie Raitt's Love Has No Pride (wow!) contextualizes the live disc, reminding us of the relevance of the two evenings' worth of concerts, as do Jackson Browne's acoustic For a Dancer and Crosby, Stills & Nash's cover of In My Life & Dan Fogelberg's Part of the Plan, a much more profound song than the ditty I remembered. So there is a lot to love, but a lot left out, and a long time to wait

Editorial Review

How much fun can Willie have on stage? How hard can he rock? Only as much and as hard as the party warrants, and this audio souvenir of his third USA Network TV special is some kind of party. Despite some jarring editing--guest announcements intrude and Kid Rock's corny cameo lurches into Al Green's moaning pentecost--the star-spangled pageantry rarely overwhelms the loose, joyful collaborations. The killer house band, with Jim Keltner on drums and Nils Lofgren on guitar, shifts from swing to reggae to boogie rock, and leaves the Nelson Family Band, fine as they are, in the dust. Ol' Willie may go froggy on an otherwise gorgeous duet with a Carole King, he may be a no-show on Toots Hibbert's frenetic "Pressure Drop," and he probably should have thought twice about letting Los Lonely Boys suck the funk from War's "Cisco Kid," but he still slings some signature Trigger riffs alongside the Holmes Brothers and matches Lucinda Williams' slow-burn emotion, phrase for soulful phrase.

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. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Lives up to the title...
This CD may not contain Townes Van Zandt's best known material, but taken in the context of when this performance was recorded the song selection makes sense. Townes was 25 when this was recorded at Carnegie Hall and hadn't written many of his most famous songs yet, therefore other reviewer's complaints that he didn't play "Pancho and Lefty" can be dismissed as ludicrous. If Townes hadn't written the songs yet, he couldn't have included them in his set (!). The previously unreleased "Talking KKK Blues" is Townes at his spoken blues best. The sound on this CD is phenomenal and what is striking is the way he projected in a concert hall like Carnegie Hall. I guess this struck me because I'm so used to hearing his live recordings in tiny dives like the Old Quarter in Texas or McCabe's guitar shop in California. Townes' voice was in top form and his guitar skills were also top notch during this time period, and while his song selection for this gig was his more subdued material I don't find this to be negative. This recording was lost in the shuffle between record labels but now that its been released it serves as a valuable document of Townes' early years and his budding genius. Despite the fact that the songs here could be classified as rarities, I would go so far as to say that this would be a good introduction to Townes Van Zandt's music. His humor and personality shine throughout the performance and it is refreshing to hear him at the peak of his powers.

3-0 out of 5 stars An interesting rarity, but not essential for casual fans...
This 1969 half-hour concert in NYC gives the young Townes a showcase for early work. He sings eight of his own compositions, two of them in the "talking blues style." He tells a joke. And he concludes with a movingly performed rendition of Peter LaFarge's "Ballad of Ira Hayes." While Townes' version of this famous story/song is not quite as good as LaFarge's own, or Johnny Cash's hit single, it has a quiet power. In fact, the concert suffers most from the fact that Van Zandt's song choices are all mellow. He probably had not yet written his livelier songs, such as "Two Hands" or "To Live is to Fly" or "No Lonesome Tune" or "If I Needed You" or "Rex's Blues." None of those are rockers, but each is a bit quicker than the material on "A Gentle Evening." As a picture of Townes' early in his career, this is a good product, with good sound quality. As a folk/country listening experience, it's a bit uneven, a bit too gentle, somewhat dated, and yet a bit too short to be worth the price. A better value is "High, Low and Inbetween" which also includes a second LP from the '70's, "Late Great Townes Van Zandt" (He became "late" on New Year's Day, 1997, so the title is satirical.) As to WHEN Van Zandt became "great" opinions differ, but that he WAS a "great" songwriter, most serious singer/songwriter fans are in agreement. On this release, by the way, he is in fine voice, better than on his later records, in my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Entire '69 Carnegie Hall recording from 25-yr-old Townes!
This mellow CD catches Townes in a show he did at Carnegie Hall on Nov. 26, 1969, as part of a Poppy Records showcase. Also on the bill were Dick Gregory and Mandrake Memorial. Poppy Records went belly-up and the recording went to United Artists Records, then later to Capitol Records, which is releasing this on the Dualtone label. Townes was just 25 when this recording was made. If you expect a long show, expect to be disappointed. Remember, this was a "showcase," so he performed just nine songs. Fortunately, unlike many live recordings, the between song dialogue has been left in (maybe to make this CD seem longer!), which is nice. Townes' chatter with the audience is almost as entertaining as the music. He mentions that he'd been playing professionally for just three years, so this short CD captures all of what must have been a magical evening -- hence the title, "A Gentle Evening with Townes Van Zandt." Some of the songs that night came from Townes first two albums, which had already been released, but the real gem is the opener, "Talking KKK Blues," which has never been released. "Talking KKK Blues" is so much fun that it's a shame it took 32 years for it to make it onto a recording. As I said before, this is a fairly short recording of just nine songs, so if you want a 70-minute CD, you might want to pass on this. But if you want quality of music, not quantity, then spend a gentle half hour or so with a very, very young genius-in-the-making. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Willie Nelson has always enjoyed playing the casino circuit and this two-CD set catches him and his ever-touring entourage at a 1978 Lake Tahoe stopover. Nelson's live shows tend to have more in common with jam-rock-styled events than country-styled concerts--meaning that they are drawn-out experiences with peaks and valleys as opposed to tightly focused, song-oriented sets. Thus, those whose ears are expecting the latter might find the endless jamming a bit tedious and the vocal performances erratic. That, however, is Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply One of The Best
What I have found in many cases on Amazon is that people giving reviews are usually people who love the group/person and just fawn and gush about the recording, which is not at all helpful. I am going to rave about this because it is simply one of the best double CDs of all time. I like a huge array of music, if it is good, I like it, so I am not beholden to one style or artist. Willie Nelson is truly one of the gems of American music, as a songwriter and a performer, and this CD captures that very well. Incredible musicians back him up, and Willie can play and pick the guitar as good as anyone. He also has been willing throughout his career to do different styles, to explore new music types and to smash the frame people want him to be in. I don't like everything he has done, but of the thousands of CDs I have, this is easily in the Top 10, plus as a kicker, he signed it in 1999.Buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you like Country...
...just buy this CD.Don't think about it.Don't debate about it.Just buy it.Put it in your cd changer or your iPod and it will stay there forever.Every song is a knockout!This is our Daytona 500 go to cd every single year...I'm surprised I haven't worn mine out!

4-0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Country jam band caught live in 1978
This 1978 set captures Nelson and his seven-piece band live at Harrah's casino showroom in Lake Tahoe, California. Those expecting a concise recitation of Nelson's songs - a typical country music show - will be in for something of a shock. In addition to reworking his early hits away from the straightjacket of their original Nashville arrangements, Nelson clearly looks at all of his songs as launching points for a live show, rather than sacrosanct icons.

Charlie Robison has taken a lot of hype for recording this album. I'm wondering why the hell that is. I read all the bad reviews written about it, then went out and bought the album. I'm here, giving it a five-star review, because I absolutely loved it--and I have a feeling you will, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Flatpicking guitar at its best
Doc Watson is well known as one of the best flatpicking guitarists in the genres of Old Time, Bluegrass and Folk. He is possibly the one who is responsible for transfering the guitar from only a rythm instrument into a soloinstrument in these kinds of music, by learning how to do the old fiddletunes on the guitar. And how he does it? He is a virtuoso on his instrument.
5-0 out of 5 stars Honest Representation of Doc and Merle Live
I was fortunate to be able to see Doc and Merle live a couple of times before Merle's premature death.This disc is an accurate representation of the live Doc and Merle I saw - excellent musicianship applied to a broad sweep of American folk, blues and fiddle tunes played in Doc's unique way.Doc has a great sense of humor and it always comes through when he plays live, just as it done on this disc.Check out "Life Gits Teejus Don't It" for an example.Merle was an absolutely incredible guitarist but the most important gift he brought to the music was his innate sense of when and how to accompany and when and how to lead.He integrated himself into a song and played his part exceedingly well.I miss him.This disc has a great mix of tunes with enough instrumentals to please the pickers and plenty of story songs for the folkies.The sound quality is warm and clear and best of all, it doesn't get in the way of the music.This is a true 5 star disc in every regard. Classic!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good intro to Doc
A very good introduction to the music of Doc Watson.This album contains samples of his blues, ballads, and old mountain songs.Of his albums that I currently have, moreover, this one reminds me most of the time I saw him in concert (early '90s) and the variety of songs he played then.I would highly recommend this as a first purchase of Doc's music. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I was there the night he recorded this album, I was walking down South Congress when I heard that guitar and a super deep voice. I'm a long time Junior Brown fan, so needless to say I freaked out when I walked up to the Continental Club to see the man himself was on stage. The price at the door was about $25, so this album is a bargain.

3-0 out of 5 stars Should have been better, but this will have to do.
This is a tough review for me to write as I am a total Junior Brown fanatic. I've seen him play many, many times and I've been waiting for a live album forever. Unfortunately, this wasn't his best night. You have to understand Junior is constantly touring - how he is able to get up on stage night after night after night playing the same songs is beyond me, but I'm still happy to hear him in whatever town I'm lucky to catch him in. For the most part Junior sounds tired on these tracks (he sounds great on "Juan Charasquado" though). Maybe he ought to take a few months off and let his batteries recharge or something. I wish he'd included "Freeborn Man" on this cd - the difference between the studio version and live is huge; I've heard him play what can only be described as an incredibly intense, blistering version of it live that had me shaking in ECSTACY - but it is not here. It's GREAT to hear "I Want To Live and Love Always" live, but it just isn't as good without Steve Layne playing and singing along. The "Rock and Roll Guitar Medley" is always a treat but it would have been SO MUCH BETTER if "Ghost Riders In The Sky" and Sergio Leone western themes were included again in the mix (hint, hint Jr. for future road dates).

3-0 out of 5 stars Better to see him live than to listen to this live disc.....
I have seen Junior Brown live a few times and I am always amazed at his guitar prowess, however I am very disappointed in this particular release:

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Waylon Album To Own
I own a lot of Waylon Jennings albums but I have to say, I find myself playing this one on 9 out of 10 times. If you want to buy just one Waylon album this is the one to own, the recording quality is brilliant for a live album and the music IS alive.Simply great, I can't say enough good things about this CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars They don't do it like this anymore...
I just watched the latest "Country Music Awards" television presentation and it is amazing how far country music has fallen.This Waylon album, recorded at the zenith of country music is a stripped down, raw, electrifying recording of a band with so much talent that Nashville could not touch it.In the current era of slick, gilded, studio produced, over-manufactured vehicles for pretty, effiminate "country" singers posessing dubious talent, this album is a true testament to the musical genius of Waylon Jennings and the men that formed his band.Today's "country" music stars don't hold a candle to Waylon, and this album is all the proof you need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another MUST OWN!
When you buy this (and you WILL buy this!), remember that every song is LIVE.Completely mind blowing.All of the raw energy is right there, with no bad spots.If all you are familiar with is the "Duke's of Hazzard" theme song, do yourself a favor and pick this up. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 3 Geniuses in One Band
Grappelli, Grisman, and Mark O'Connor all playing together in a classic performance.My favorite piece is Tiger Rag where Grappelli and then 18 year old O'Connor play a transcription for two violins with lots of improvising throughout.Grappelli commented later that O'Connor would do great things with his music, and his prediction has come true.O'Connor displays his virtuosity on guitar as well on the other tunes.Grisman, O'Connor, Marshall, and Wasserman provide a great acoustic background for Grappelli's legendary sound.These are tunes that were not typically in the DGQ repertoire, but they sound like they've been playing them for years.Another bonus is Tiny Moore's electric mandolin solo on Satin Doll.This album is a true classic.
