Back to the basics for Live in Chicago
Kevin Cohn | New York, NY USA | 10/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dave Matthews Band's third complete live recording made commerically available (following 1997's Live at Red Rocks and 1999's Listener Supported) falls somewhere between the two. While Red Rocks is considered by many to be one of the band's finer performances ever, Live in Chicago doesn't fall too short. Including a couple of concert rarities (The Last Stop, The Maker, Christmas Song), some amazing guest musicians (Victor Wooten, Tim Reynolds, Maceo Parker), and a good mix of songs (all of the band's studio albums pre-Everyday are represented), it makes for a great live disc. One can argue, however, that the sound quality is not as high as that of Listener Supported (at times the mix seems a little off), and the argument can always be made that, "We've heard Watchtower enough now." Regardless, I'd still recommend this album to anyone interested in hearing what Dave Matthews Band sounds like live. This is raw and pure live Dave Matthews Band."
Possibly DMB's finest live release

"The amazing thing about Dave Matthews Band is the fact that they can release the number of live albums that they do, without saturating their fanbase with too many concert albums. DMB only has four studio albums (five if you include the fabulous unreleased "Lillywhite Sessions") while now having three two-disc concert albums available (their first ablum, Remember Two Things, is somewhat of a hybrid of live performances and in-studio tracks). Three live albums is alot for a band with only four studio albums, but that's just the thing - DMB can do this because they - and their fans - know that the live shows are where it's at.
When looking over the track listing for Live In Chicago, you might think that it's not worth the price since several tracks appear on one or both of DMB's previous live albums. While this is a sensible concern, I advise you to disregard it. First of all, as most DMB concertgoers know, each show is different; no two versions of any given song are identical. Secondly, the songs on this album are simply played better than on previous releases. Songs like "Don't Drink the Water," "#41," "Rapunzel," and "Stay" all are included on Listener Supported, but are not performed nearly as well on that disc as on this one. "Rapunzel" is played at its proper tempo on Live in Chicago, unlike on Listener Supported where it is slowed down to a snail's crawl for some reason. "Stay" is performed on Live in Chicago without the Lovely Ladies (the band's backup singers that frequently perform live with them), and so Dave is left to handle what is normally a five-part vocal all by himself....and he nails it beautifully. If you're not a fan of the backup vocalists that play with DMB, this is the show for you.
It's important to remember that Listener Supported, by DMB standards, is a rather lackluster show. The only reason it was even released is because PBS (the network that broadcast the show in its entirety in a televised special) intended to release it with or without the band's approval, so the band decided to jsut go along with it rather than fight it. live in Chicago, however, is a band-selected performance that shines throughout. This is the first live effort to include the song "The Last Stop," and to hear this performance of this song is worth the price of the disc alone. It also has the rarely played and previously unreleased "The Maker." Do yourself a favor and buy this album. You WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!"
