Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds – Live At Radio City

An easy Taranna grab…

I loved early Dave Matthews stuff, but I probably fell off buying every new release after Before These Crowded Streets. I know, I know, he’s put out a ton of stuff since then, a lot of it great. I just went in different directions, I guess, though it’s always fun when I hear him here or there.

Anyway, one of the releases I love most is the 2CD set he made with Tim Reynolds at Luther College. I played the hell out of that. There’s just something about those two dudes with two acoustic guitars, just jamming like hell and ripping it up… it pleased me more often than DMB itself does, you know? I know, I’m weird.

I honestly didn’t even know this set existed (I haven’t been paying attention), so of course I grabbed it up super-fast, a steal at $5.99 for the 2CD set. And what did I think? It’s excellent, of course. The sound is big and clear, and the versions here are brilliant. There’s also this info:

“The tracks were recorded at a live acoustic rock concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on April 22, 2007. The 26-song set features 12 songs from Dave Matthews Band albums and six songs from Dave Matthews’ Some Devil album. The other songs in the set include various unreleased and cover songs. Matthews and Reynolds played the entire set together, with the exception of two solos by Reynolds—”Betrayal” and “You Are My Sanity”—and one solo performance by Matthews—”Some Devil.” This is the first time Matthews has played piano at a show, and he also plays a small piece of The Beatles’ “Blackbird” before “Out of My Hands”.” (Wiki)

Hit It Or Quit It? Hit!

  1. Oh man, if this is as good as the old blue cover album….


  2. Before these crowded streets is where my collection ends too – this sounded like a safe investment though, so not surprising, but pleased to hear it was a hit!


  3. I still haven’t heard too much Dave Matthews. I have the one album, but I’ve never felt inclined to explore further…

    Anyhoo, this is definitely a good price for a 2CD set of a chap you like. Or two chaps that have some form for delivering the goods.


  4. Good take Books. I have this one also. I think it was given to me. It has a lot of good music on it. I’m in the same boat as you with my listening to Dave. I was very interested on your take on this one.
