I hadn't listened to much smog or Bill in a while, but when I saw this album for sale I had to pick it up.
I was pleasantly surprised, actually kind of blown away by this live performance. It's a solid album, somber and slow at times, but that's to be expected from Bill Callahan, and cheerful at others. With rockers like Diamond Dancer and the Bowery and the type of deep, precise story-telling you'd expect from Bill Callahan, every song is interesting, musically and lyrically - no easy feat considering every song is at least 5 minutes. Bathysphere makes for a great closer.
This is one of the best live albums, of any kind, I've heard in a long time. Any fan of Callahan will enjoy this.
Also, I have the four-sided LP and it sounds great. I can't vouch for the sound quality of the digital tracks, but the recording itself seems very clear and nicely mixed.
