Various Artists, Mississippi Studios - Live: Volume II
Portland’s "Place to get an Earful" (Willamette Week) offers up its second collection of stellar tracks recorded live at the unique, intimate venue / recording studio in Portland, Oregon. Mississippi Studios presents shows by artists who would otherwise play larger venues, in an intense, intimate setting. Great performances result, as evidenced here. Another Mississippi Studios specialty, breaking exciting new bands and songwriters, is showcased here. Like VOLUME I (also available from BDC), this live compilation is sure to be a favorite of the fans of the individual artists, as well as enthusiasts of great live music. Highlights: Rocking solo performances by Hamell on Trial, John McEuen , Toshi Reagon, Stew (of the Negro Problem); John Wesley Harding and the Love Hall Tryst singing an accapella version of a traditional tragic love hymn; awe-inspiring harmonies form Australia’s Fruit; rocking blues from Portland's award-winning Rose City Kings; cutting edge wizardry from the California Guitar Trio; and torchy Americana grit from Portland’s Amelia.
