For those of us who have taken Richmond Fontaine to our hearts in recent years, this live album is a must. Recorded in the band's home town of Portland Oregon, it features many tracks from the album "The Fitzgerald" together with favourites from previous albums "Post to Wire" and "Winnemucca".Originally the album was sold at concerts and was not widely available elsewhere.

Richmond Fontaine have developed a loyal fanbase in Britain on the back of several tours, and this album manages to capture the mood of the band in concert. As vocalist/songwriter Willy Vlautin explains many of the tracks reveal a darker side to life centring around life on the wrong side of the tracks in Reno,Nevada, as reflected in tracks such as Welhorn Yards and Exit 194B.

Long time favourites "Always on the Ride" and "Barely Losing" are included in the set. When this was recorded the band had already recorded five albums and therefore in any live set there's always likely to be some tracks that as Willy has said have "gone on vacation". On this night at the Doug Fir Lounge the band could afford to rest perhaps their two best known tracks " Five degrees below zero" and "Western Skyline". However the set holds up really well and the closing track "Casino Lights" leaves the listener wanting to know more about the destiny of the characters in many of the songs.

Overall the album not only showcases Richmond Fontaine as a band of fine musicians, but also the craft of Willy Vlautin as a storyteller/songwriter.
If you like this album you'll love his novel "The Motel Life"
