Found this as a result of one track that featured on a Word Magazine sampler. The track ("Engine driver") was good, but what had jumped out whenever it came up on shuffle was the moment when the audience spontaneously sang a chorus. Proper, hairs on arms electric. Got the album and, if I'm honest, really willed myself to like it - actually just listened to it straight through twice, just like in the old days. I genuinely love every track on here. For a live album, there's enough between song chat to make you feel included (but not so much that you want to skip it every time). His voice isn't perfect, the guitars misbehave, and the fact that we're allowed to hear these imperfect versions makes it even better. I've since tracked down more by his band the Decemberists, and of course many of the songs featured here appear in more lush settings, but primacy rules - I think that I'll be coming back to this album again and again. Would strongly recommend to anyone.
