It is rare that a live album transcends or even equals a band's studio output. I'm thinking Live and Dangerous, Quo Live, Frampton comes alive and not much else comes to mind off the cuff. Sure there are great live albums in their own right, Live at Leeds, get yer Ya yas out, etc, etc, I think that a live album has to be seen in isolation, a record of a particular moment in time, and that if you want a definitive version of the tracks in the concert then reach for the studio album. So with that, lengthy, caveat, I have to say that I am immensely impressed by this album. There is a nice mix of old Drive by Truckers stuff, some stuff of the solo and other 400 unit albums and a killer closing cover of Like a Hurricane. Jason Isbell is in good voice, displaying a degree of vulnerability that is not always apparent in the studio and the band are tight as a gnat's chuff. Obviously this band's main appeal will be for current fans, and if you fall into that bracket you will not be disappointed. If you haven't heard this band then if you like anything from the Byrds to Lynyrd Skynyrd by way of Steve Earle, then you might find something new to like here.
