"There are two types of bands- ones that shine in front of an audience and ones that shy away. The Colonels simply radiate. One of the most tasteful live recordings I've ever heard in any genre of music."
Lemme hear a YEE-HAW!

"Sure, Clarence White is extarordinary as a picker, with all the other cats in this assemblage more than pretty good. The middle section of the CD, with some old-timey gospel gems, is a treasure. These guys are so relaxed with their sound, not playing every lead just to impress everybody, but to give feel to the tunes. I have become really enamored of the style where the group operates around one microphone. the sound of the instruments as they "dance" in and out makes it a visual as well as audio pleasure. These guys are flat out great at this style of performing. A hearty recommendation to pick this thing up. Experience this short-lived, but powerful force!"
Depends how much you like bluegrass

"How you like this will depend how much of a bluegrass nut (as I am)you are. If you are new to bluegrass you would do better to get one of the newer albums. This album is a concert album done before Clarence White ( possibly the greatest(or most creative) bluegrass guitarist ever was killed by a drunk driver (his guitar by the way is now played by TOny rice). Anyway this was a concert done with not the greatest sound quality but shows the boys having fun and doing alot of songs on stage."
