I love Jonatha Brooke's music and I have seen her in concert three times; once as part of The Story and twice solo. This CD is very good. Her voice sounds great live and she obviously enjoys what she does.
Talent deserving of wider recognition

"I have been mesmerized by the beauty, clarity and perfection of Jonatha Brooke's voice for many years. "Live" is like having a command performance in your living room. The quality of the recording is excellent. Great performances by her band--especially like the sound of the fretless bass (Marcus Miller) on "Because I Told You So". Why Jonatha isn't as well known as Jewel or Sarah McLachlan is beyond me."
A good intro to a great live performer

".... Snatch up your copy of Jonatha's albums before its too late.Jonatha Brooke is a folk-rock singer-songwriter from the Boston area who has needs just too many hyphens to express her talent. Having seen Jonatha live on three previous occaisons, I was very excited to see her release a Live album. Ultimately the album is a little disapointing for the simple reason that she is just SO GOOD when she performs live, that it is very difficult to capture the energy that exists at her shows. And I was a little disapointed at her selection of songs on this album which tends to highlight more of her folky songs instead of her rock songs. Both of her "styles" are great, but I would prefer the mix rather than the emphasis on one particular style. No "Crumbs" and no "Charming" and no "Secrets and Lies"? For the die-hard Jonatha Brooke fans, this is a good CD to get to listen to on the drive to her shows. For the people who want an intro to her music, this is a great starting album. Check out her other two solo albums, and the two she did with Jennifer Kimball as The Story and you'll get about 30 more songs which are just fantastic. Jonatha Brooke is so much fun to listen to, I could listen to her jingle for Goodyear tires for hours!"
