This review is from: Alison Krauss + Union Station Live (Audio CD)
First came across AK duetting with Michelle Shocked, but it took her sublime version of Baby, Now That I've Found You to really open my ears. The version here surpasses even the studio version - one of the best live sounds I have heard.
Small gripes - hence the churlish docking of a star - despite being a fantastic band, I find the blokes' solo vocal pieces to be a bit skippable - I certainly wouldn't be buying a Union-Station-with-fiddle-player album. Alison plays well, but her voice is fantastic, and the songs she sings are made fairer yet by her delivery.
And the audience - rather essential to a live album, and generally respectful, but they spoil the first bars of several songs - why do audiences feel the need to let everyone know they recognise the song? Huh?
