Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
More Miles Than Money: Live 1994-96 is the most compelling solo release yet from this Austin roots rock legend, an alumnus of Rank & File, True Believers, and Buick MacKane. On these live recordings, Alejandro Escovedo broods--usually quietly--in front of solemn picking and a weary cello or violin, as is the case during a beautiful version of his best song, "Pissed Off 2 A.M." A couple of times, though, he shows he can still rock out (a wicked "I Wanna Be Your Dog"), and when the electric guitar springs in to steal the show, during the Stones' "Sway," the sudden contrast takes your breath away. --David Cantwell

CD Reviews

A really good record
Neil Roseman | Seattle, WA USA | 12/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is my favorite solo Escovedo record -- it catches his world-weary sound much better than his studio recordings. The live versions of his own songs, particularly _Pissed Off_, and _Broken Bottle_ are riveting, and his choice of covers nothing short of inspired. And, it's great to hear his punk rock roots showing on _I Wanna Be Your Dog_ and _Street Hassle_.Put this one on late at night, with a smoke in one hand and a double-scotch in the other. Trust me, you'll feel better."
One of the few American musicians who really matter.
Stanley B. Dow | 06/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although often lumped into the "alt-country" grab bag of styles, Escovedo's music defies simple categorization. He deftly navigates the disparate influences of folk, rock, punk, country, and many other styles. The whole, however, stands far greater than the sum of it's parts."
Escovedo late night live
Stanley B. Dow | Norman, Oklahoma | 11/25/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is representative of Alejandro's live shows which are amazing. Be sure to catch him now while his current line up of excellent musicians is intact before he gets frustrated and quits touring. He is truly an "alt" country artist of the highest caliber. My stepson plays in a punk rock band (PULPIT RED (new release) ==>> LURK in Norman Oklahoma soon & a very good disc) but loves Escovedo, my daughter is a new age music lover but loves Escovedo, in short an artist whose appeal defies categories. His recordings have been woefully neglected but here is an undiscovered gem, not to be missed. His greatest achievements are the discs Thirteen Years & With These Hands (an outstanding disc with guests like Willie Nelson). I rate both those discs at five stars, get them you won't be disappointed! P.S. The above live disc is at least four stars but I couldn't edit it to reflect it."
