Product Description

Product Description

Patty Griffin's first live outing is a fine, poetic, flesh and blood example of what a live recording should be. This is as undressed as it gets; a fine record of a truly magical show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nash Vegas; a fitting end to a tour that began with the hope of getting a new record on a new label across. The end result is one of those recordings where the singer becomes her songs. Her guests, including Buddy and Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris, John Deaderick, and Jay Joyce all end up as parts and parcels in the songs, rather than as personalities helping to interpret them. The world woven from Griffin's three studio recordings, combined with the energy coming from audience, and the stage itself, make for one of the most engaging, warm, and poetic listening experiences issued in a decade, and one of the best live outings on record. The package includes a DVD with videos for the songs "Rain" and "Chief," and a slice of life documentary of life on the road during a memorable year. Griffin's delivery on "Christina," is nervous, grainy, full of the heartbreak of her subject (Christina Onassis), "Rain" offers an acceptance and resignation of a soul in flux and pain which refuses to yield its desire to transcend. And on it goes, into the night with warmth abounding, and a heart opening, like Frida Kahlo's: revealing everything in the moment. in the safety of camaraderie. and the in the naked light of song itself.

In my enthusiastic appreciation,Patty Griffin excels in all the composite aspects of singing music:very talented (and complex) tunes;very balanced and adequate interpretation/rendition;and marvelous lyrics(she even in my view is a consummated poetess).
So put in comparison with her peer singers-present and past-Patty Griffin is like a decathlonist that not only would win the dechatlon contest but would obtain world records in all the disciplines individually considered.

I rate this as one of my Favorite CD's of all time, It's one of the few albums that you do not get tired of listening too.
I do own all Patty Griffin's CD's and this one is the best.
If you do like it try Living With Ghosts, Yet another great CD.

HASH(0x9ddb1a44) out of 5 stars Good Place to Start - Must have to Complete Collection 6 April 2004
By S. Sokoll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first listened to Patty Griffin when her first album came out. I was living in Texas and thought Mad Mission one of the best songs of the year. I always wondered why KGSR played only Let Him Fly (a very good song) when Mad Mission was so stunning. And the version of Mad Mission on this CD is just so much...I won't say better...but amplified and fully realized . Even the performance of [Let Him] Fly is better and I was quite jaded by its constant rotation on the radio in 1996.
I have all her albums and cannot recommend this one enough. Her live versions amplify and enhance the studio recordings from the other albums. It doesn't hurt that you have Buddy & Julie Miller and Emmylou Harris singing and playing along, but this album would still be a fantastic showcase without them.
My favorites are Goodbye, Rain, Long Road Home, Tony, Mad Mission and Fly, although there is not a "skip" on the album.

HASH(0x9eafc18c) out of 5 stars Thanks United Airlines! 22 July 2004
By Chris Alberding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, I have to admit that I first heard this album while flying back and forth between NYC and San Francisco earlier this year, as part of United's in-air music programming. Well, let me say that somebody there is doing their job well.

I'd been curious about Patty Griffin's music before that, as I'd seen that she'd written some good songs used by the Dixie Chicks (FUTK), like "Let Him Fly" and "Truth No. 2." But I hadn't heard her own voice or playing until those flights, and am happy to say that I've not stopped listening to this album since.

This collection covers a lot of territory, presenting songs from most (if not all) of her albums, and has a very bittersweet tone overall. Griffin's humble personality is very apparent when she introduces some of the songs and expresses her gratitude to some special guest musicians. The production is one of the better I've heard on a live album in a while, and effectively seems to capture the feel of seeing the show inside the Ryman.

I'd recommend this as an excellent place to start for someone just getting into Patty Griffin's music. The accompanying DVD is also worth having, as it features a series of interviews with Griffin about her music and a couple of music videos.

HASH(0x9dd1a588) out of 5 stars Patty at Her Best 15 Oct. 2003
By Seth_Haines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those of you who love Patty, this cd is a must buy. The cd captures a simple, straight-forward performance that never seems contrived. Fans of Flaming Red will enjoy the toned-down versions of "Tony," "Christina," "Mary," and "Peter-Pan." Of course, Patty includes other favorites including "Rain," and my personal favorite, "Mad Mission." "Be Careful" features the beautiful harmonization of Patty and background vocalist Julie Miller (Julie's album Broken Things also excellent). BUY THIS CD. You won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x9ddb1d20) out of 5 stars A must-have! 19 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was one of the fortunate souls to attend the concert in Nashville during which this album was recorded. It was an amazing evening and you will sense that as you listen to the lovely tracks captured on this CD. "Let Him Fly" is a perfect example of her vocal abilities - I've never heard anything like this version of it! And "Mary" - with Julie Miller and Emmylou Harris singing backup - will stop you in your tracks with its angelic harmonies. Although there is only one new song on the album, I think fans of Patty will enjoy the different versions of their favorites - from an all-acoustic version of "Christina" to an energetic version of "Mad Mission." Some of her between-songs comments are included and they are very fun! The DVD also gives you insight into Patty's humility and love for what she does.

HASH(0x9dbaf8dc) out of 5 stars I'm a wuss - she can make me cry 13 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first caught wind of Patty when she opened for Lucinda Williams in the latter part of the 90's. The show was in the auditorium of an old mansion in the beautiful city of Des Moines, IA.
I admit I had never heard of Patty, but when she came on stage with just a guitar and sang the most melodic and beautifully written songs I had heard in a long, long time...well, I was hooked.
I went out and bought all her recordings and I have had the pleasure of enjoying her music ever since. I can't wait to hear her new album (I hear it will have her original version of Top Of The World) that comes out in April, and I hope to see her live once again. I guess this cd will have to hold me over until that time.
Like all Patty fans, I enjoy all her music, especially songs as poetic and beautiful as Nobody's Cryin'. When the song gets to the part...
May you dream you are dreaming, in a warm soft bed
And may the voices inside you that fill you with dread
Make the sound of thousands of angels instead
Tonight where you might be laying your head
..I have to admit it can move me to tears.
And the fact that she is not more comercially known both saddens me and makes me happy. Sad in the fact that everyone doesn't know her as a household musical name, but happy in that I can have her as virtually my little musical secret, happily doleing out her music to friends knowing I'm bringing beautiful to their ears. If that makes me selfish so be it.
