Biography

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are like a modern-day version of Tina Turner stroking the microphone in a spangled mini-dress while fronting the Rolling Stones circa Sticky Fingers. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s third album for Hollywood Records, hitting this spring, and marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense ...

Grittier than their recent studio albums, harder than their early work 27 Aug. 2010
By Nobody important - Published on Amazon.com
Grace Potter's first two albums, Original Soul and Nothing But The Water, were masterpieces of gospel-inflected blues-rock combining the loping Oklahoma rhythms of J.J. Cale, the powerful vocals of a young Bonnie Raitt or Susan Tedeschi, and a stripped-down, uncluttered sound in which the musicians play effectively without getting in each others' way. When Grace and The Nocturnals released This Is Somewhere, something started to change. The sound was more polished, the balance between rock, blues, country and gospel shifted heavily towards rock, and the result was a much more conventional modern rock album from a band with its toes in the jam band scene. I didn't dislike the album-- it just sounded more ordinary. The real question was this: did the sound of that album indicate a full directional shift for the band, or just the result of studio polish as the band started to make a name for itself? Live In Skowhegan indicates that it is a little of both, but more of the latter.

The sound here is much grittier than the band's recent studio efforts. It isn't as dirty and greasy as a Mofro album, but Grace belts out the songs with more power in her voice than she has in the studio recently. Similarly, Scott Tournet's guitar licks have an edge that sometimes sound more influenced by Richard Thompson than J.J. Cale. What is missing on this album is space. One of the things that I liked best about Nothing But The Water was that the sound was so uncluttered. One of the consequences of the band playing more aggressively on Live In Skowhegan than they did on Nothing But The Water is that there is less space between the notes. I miss the loping J.J. Cale rhythms. This may be a matter of taste, but I like the kinds of sounds that J.J. Cale got back in the 70s by leaving space between the notes, and when I first heard Nothing But The Water, I thought that my prayers for a band reaching back to that style had been answered. It seems that Grace Potter and the Nocturnals have moved on to a more hard rock-based sound, but at least when they are on stage, they don't suffer from overproduction. Like the Black Crowes, they can be counted on for a good, straight-ahead classic blues-rock sound, at least when they are playing live. That's nothing to sneeze at.

Another one to collect 10 Oct. 2009

I've been head over heels for this woman (and her band) ever since the first time I heard her...

I've been digging and digging for "Live Oh Five" forever but haven't been able to come across it. This live collection will have to do. It's definitely got a raw live sound, and I love that they can translate studio-produced music so well into a concert setting. They really are a live band, and they evidently never put on a bad show.

Love it.

Fantastic 25 Dec. 2008
By William B. Dearth - Published on Amazon.com
I caught this live on the internet via thisissomewhere.com and it's easily my favorite live show of the year from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. GREAT sound quality. I never travel without this concert on cd.

Captured the night! 23 Feb. 2009
By L. Hebert - Published on Amazon.com
I was at this show and have to say not only does the recording capture the incredible show put on by GP&N, but it captured the memorable Hot night had by all in attendance. The Opera House sounded just as you hear, there was a heat in there that makes me sweat just thinking of it, whew!

Great Album 25 Oct. 2011
By Alex Kallend - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a live disc featuring songs from the Nocturnal's first two albums. The band's energy and feel really come through well. Sugar is a track that doesn't appear on the band's studio releases (to date), and rocks. And the closer, Big White Gate, is just amazing.
