Product Description:

Though Dave Alvin's reputation rests with his songwriting, the dynamism of this live recording puts the pedal to the metal and leaves the studio versions of much of this material in the dust. Highlights range from a nine-minute medley of Alvin's "Little Honey" and Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" 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 the Blasters. Not since Creedence's John Fogerty has a roots rocker mined such a rich vein of Americana, though material such as "Haley's Comet," "Blue Boulevard," and "Wanda and Duane" find Alvin's hard-bitten lyricism growing increasingly dark as it matures. While his half-spoken, half-sung vocals lack the nuance of the best of his songwriting, a killer band featuring drummer Bobby Lloyd Hicks and keyboardist Joe Terry provides propulsive support for his stinging guitar. --Don McLeese
