If you haven't heard counting crows before, buy the studio version. Then, once you have fallen in love with that (which you will) buy the live version (this one). You'll love it.
If you already have the studio version. But this now. One word: amazing!!

For people that know the band, everything is here that you would expect. Alternate lyrics, extended solo's and Adam singing each song slightly different to the recorded version or the last time that he sang that song.

For those people that don't know the band, this is the best live album that I have ever heard. If you like guitars, piano and hearing band that has played together for more than 20 years and are musically so tight then give it a try. The Rain King and Sullivan Street versions on here are 2 of the greatest things I have ever heard.

This is exactly what I like about the counting crows. Performing well known tracks from a nearly 20 year old album, sticking in some alternate lyrics, and just creating some excellent music.

For me, this is one of the greatest albums of all time, and this album is a great live version of it.

I just cannot stop playing this - I already had the DVD but wanted this for the car.! Brilliant performance from beginning to end; especially dropping Springsteen's Thunder Road into the middle of Rain King. A rare example of a live album that captures the magic of a studio album and makes it even better.

Counting Crows are a phenomenal live band. I'm tempted to say that these versions of the songs from August and Everything After are the best. But the truth is they are different, not just from the original album, but also other live recordings. The upbeat version of the Rain King medleyed with Thunder Road is amazing but is it better than the tender, sweet version that opens New Amsterdam: Live At Heineken Music Hall [Australian Imp.]? On that recording Adam Duritz's voice sounded often tender and fragile, which gave the songs a sense of poignancy. Here he thunders like a rock god. And I can't say which I like better.

All the tracks from August and Everything After are present, including Raining in Baltimore which, although not mentioned on the tracklisting, is medleyed with Round Here and the Sordid Humor song Private Archipelago, to form one epic raw nerve of a song lasting just short of 12 minutes. They use the same strategy with Murder of One, blending in Red Hill Mining Town by U2 and Dorris Day (also by Sordid Humor), and Perfect Blue Buildings, which contains Miller's Angels and Sometimes it Snows in April by Prince. So there is a lot of material presented here.

If the vocals are raw, the music is polished with piano and organ providing a framework filled out by guitars, mandolin, pedal steel guitar and underpinned by bass and drums. The sound is never overbearing but it always feels full. And Dan Vickrey's guitar work, which I'll admit I'm not always 100% convinced by, is spot on here. This album has an amazing atmosphere, the crowd joining in the choruses and giving rapturous applause.

Having gotten into CC back in 93 with August and everything after I wasn't sure about this live venture , the end result is brilliant and I now like this better than the original .
