5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let this one sneak under the radar!! 30 Jun 2011
By Cornish Deadhead TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Once again, a mainstream release by this tremendous artist has slipped away unnoticed. It was only due to me periodically checking him on Amazon that I picked up on this June '11 release!

So, what have we got, well, for starters just about the same band that appeared on Here Come the Noise Makers: Live 1998-2000, namely John "JT" Thomas, Bobby Read, J V Collier, Doug Derryberry, with the change being Sonny Emory on drums in place of Michael Baker. The music and playing is first class with a good selection from his albums with slightly more from Halcyon Daysand Spirit Trail. There are also some covers including "Comfortably Numb" which works very well with his own "Fortunate Son", and (I'm glad to say) he's still doing Grateful Dead numbers with this album featuring a grand "Standing On The Moon/Halcyon Days" as the final track.

Hornsby is a very accomplished musician and deserves far more recognition than he has in my opinion. If you want to sample his work, then try this fabulous double album which was recorded live on 2007, 08 and 09 as it should give you 2.5hrs of joy. If you're already a fan, especially if you purchased the first "Noisemakers" album, what are you waiting for, just buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars if i could i'd give it 6 stars 14 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i think that everyone(over 40) must have heard the name "Bruce Hornsby" and remember his biggest hit, "The way it is" ....
Thats the way it was for me, until i heard "Gonna be some changes made" from the Halcyon Days CD and thats what lead me to this album.
i checked Amazon for his back catalogue and checked the reviews and this one stood out as the one value for money CD that represented his genius and thats what it is.
A CD packed with everything... soul, melancholy,humour,style, wit and the most amazing musicianship. In fact i can't think of a better live album, this has been played daily for months in my house and has led to the purchase of the entire back catalogue .
there are too many stand out songs to name one , its almost a best of CD but goes better than that . As Live act , Bruce and Co just deliver on every level.
If ever there was an artist who can paint a picture through Music it's Bruce, he writes and performs in glorious technicolour i'm just sad that it took me until my 43rd year to really appreciate what i'd been missing.
This is my first and probably last Amazon review as it's unlikely that any other CD will match this in terms of sound quality, production and song choice.
There are few recordings that happen when all the planets align,the grasses bend and the winds drop, the only one that gets close is "Frampton Comes Alive' and thats very good company to be in.
Live Long Bruce and thankyou for this amazing compiliation.

Bruce Hornsby is sadly mostly remembered for the ubiquitous "The Way It Is", which has been played to death and isn't even one of his better songs. A lot of people are put off by the very mention of that track, but in doing so, they are missing out on a superb musician and live performer. Not many people know that he spent many years playing keyboards for the Grateful Dead, or that his live performances are renowned for their utter spontaneity - he takes requests from the audience, and improvises on the spot. If you love well-written, well-played, classy rock music, you owe it to yourself to explore his catalogue outside of "The Way It Is".

He even understands the Internet - he puts numerous live recordings up for free download as MP3 on his own website, with FLAC available if you want to pay. Given that I've already downloaded all the free shows he makes available, I hesitated before buying this album, but I needn't have worried - as above, he seldom plays the same song the same way twice, and this is a compelling listen even if you've heard these songs before.

The track list is great - very little of the early stuff with The Range, but heavy on the more recent solo and Noisemakers material. Particular highlights are "Circus On The Moon" from Halcyon Days and the medley of "Fortunate Son" with Floyd's "Comfortably Numb", two songs that sound as if they were made to go together - but it's all good. If you're a Hornsby fan - even if you've downloaded all the Free Noise concerts - this is well worth picking up. If you're not a Hornsby fan, give it a listen anyway - it'll probably convert you!

A GREAT 'live' album, featuring great tracks, amazing musicianship, and listening to it now... it SOUNDS great :)

I'm an accidental Hornsby fan, but I'm addicted to the musicality and spontaneous feel of the way these songs were performed and recorded, GET THIS!
