Synopsis

Amazon.com
More proof that radio would be a lot more interesting if we could all tune into KCRW/Santa Monica. This batch of 1995-'96 live tracks begins with a shivery, very electric Cowboy Junkies version of Springsteen's "State Trooper" and includes real keepers by Patti Smith ("Dancing Barefoot"), The Wallflowers, Stereolab, Ben Folds Five, Fiona Apple, and a riveting Me'Shell Ndegeocello. --Jeff Bateman

"I have bought all the Rare on the Air series. This one is the best. the cowboy junkies version of state trooper is worth the price alone"
A step down from vols 1 & 2
D. A. Hosek | Santa Monica, CA USA | 02/28/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Having listened to vols 1 & 2 of the series lots and this one somewhat less, I have to say that this is definitely a step down. There are some good moments: The airy floating sounds of Booth & Bad Angel's "Fall in Love With Me" is good as is Gonzalo Rubalcaba's instrumental version of "Imagine", but much of the rest of the CD doesn't leap out at me. I don't feel like I'm hearing something new and unique here like I did with vols 1 & 2. I've wavered between 3 and 4 stars for this, and what I'd really like to give is 3 1/2 stars, but I'll aim low."
