Synopsis

Amazon.com
Leo Kottke has peppered his oeuvre with live albums, which is befitting since his extraordinary instrumental technique and droll humor make him a natural (albeit low-key) audience charmer. This 15-song set from a 1995 Boulder, Colorado, concert finds the guitarist focusing on late '80s and early '90s albums. He draws from 1986's A Shout Toward Noon (check out his cover of Duane Allman's deceptively intricate "Little Martha"), '88's Regards from Chuck Pink, '89's My Father's Face, '90's That's What, and '94's Peculiaroso. Kottke reaches deeper into his song bag to pull out "Bean Time" (from 1972's Greenhouse), but it's refreshing to hear him reexamine a particularly fertile period in his career while the original recordings are still fresh in his mind. The clear-as-lake-water audio quality also deserves kudos. As usual, Kottke's playing is beyond reproach and his between-song remarks are winning. --Steven Stolder

CD Reviews

Even tho I was in Boulder at this taping, I'm not biased. .
Dennis Stevens | Alexandria, VA United States | 01/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an incredible CD! Yea, I was in Boulder at this show, and it was worth trudging through the snow to get to and from the performance that Easter evening. His musical talent is vast, and that talent comes shining through on this CD. His story telling between songs is a wonderful insight into who he is as a person. Without those between song stories, Leo's talent makes him seem other-worldly. Hearing the personal side of this performer is a warm and welcome addition, and is why this CD is one of my favorites."
Kottke Demands To Be Heard Live

"To hear Leo Kottke live is one of life's simple pleasures. One man, one guitar (and occasional vocal) and he transports you worlds you've never been to before. His playing is simply amazing! Most of this material dates from his tenure on the Private Music label, but he does include "Bean Time" from my all-time favorite album Greenhouse.What makes Kottke's live albums a special treat is hearing his between-song stories. His deadpan humor when he recounts his father's military experience at teaching hand-to-hand combat is a hoot. Highly recommended"
Simply the best
