Earlier in the week I had planned to go with a different concert for this episode but it seems that Santa had an early present for me. Last year around this time I featured Warren Haynes’ 19th Annual X-Mas Jam and I decided to continue the tradition when I came across multiple concerts from the 20th X-Mas Jam. The lineups are always so good that I might have to make this a yearly tradition.

The music for this show will feature a new band with a familiar lead singer. During the Beastie Boys recent “Get Out and Vote” tour, Ben Harper debuted a new lineup, Relentless 7. The beginnings of the band’s formation date back to 1998 at a concert Ben played in Austin. While on the way to the show, the guy driving Ben’s van asked to play a demo tape. Ben was so impressed that he got the band a record deal and continued to work with their guitarist on several projects, including one of the tracks on Both Sides of the Gun. The band was Wan Santo Condo and guitar player Jason Mozersky, is now playing lead for Relentless 7.

This concert begins with a track called “Number With No Name,” which is from their debut album, White Lies For Dark Times, which will be out in May of next year. The limited tour stops they have made so far have been at smaller venues than typical for the Innocent Criminals. The reason for this can be attributed to the following quote from Ben Harper: “I wanted us to earn it, this is where it needs to be for it to be sincere”. I for one am hoping they stick with this philosophy on their album tour next Spring, just be sure to get your tickets early.

Song listing
1) Number No Name
2) Shimmer
3) Lay There & Hate Me
4) Better Way
5) Fly One Time
6) Keep It Together
7) Dressed in Black
8) Boots
9) Up to You Now
10) Good Times Bad Times w/ John Paul Jones

If you are still looking for a Christmas gift for the live music fan in your life I highly recommend picking up Rodrigo y Gabriela's new album "Live in Japan". The duo never cease to amaze me with the energy and rhythm that are on display during this performance. Although it is available digitally, for this one you should buy the plastic version so you get the bonus DVD.

Well it’s that time of year in Kansas City as I’m sure it is in many other areas where you are listening when the inevitability of winter starts sinking in. With the majority of my outdoor activities coming to an end for the next several months the thoughts of spending the majority of my time indoors has put a slight damper on my mood. So in light of this I thought it would be fitting to do a blues show for this episode. Also, it has been a while since I featured a recording from my hometown and this recent download I came across fit both of those criteria perfectly.

Last month wrapped up the end of Gov’t Mule’s Kinder Revolution Fall Tour and supporting them on this tour was a great blues band called Back Door Slam. The trio comes all the way from the Isle of Man which is at the geographical centre of the British Isles. Despite that they seem to spend a lot of time touring the US because I saw them open for Rusted Root about a year before at the same venue. They really are a great opening act and I’d love to see what they can do with a full set sometime. This recording was captured by Nick Hatfield aka MOMule on November 16th, 2008 and is sure to get you fired up on even the coldest winter day.

I have been listening to more streaming concerts on Wolfgang's Vault now that the company I work for has for some reason unblocked this site.  I'm not really sure why since it seems like it would be a giant bandwidth hog, but that isn't really my problem. 

Here is one that I found featuring a compilation of some of the greatest guitar players of all time.

For this episode I am featuring an Australian artist that was last seen touring the US with Ben Folds. If you guessed Missy Higgins then I guess you win although I didn’t really come up with any prizes. I got the chance to see their sold out stop in Kansas City last month and despite waiting in line during a cold and rainy night for about a half an hour, it turned out to be one of my favorite concerts this year. I can be fairly cheap so when I get to see 2 great bands in the same night it kind of feels like I got a little extra for my money.

The job of the opening band can be quite difficult with many crowds and especially with one that is cold and wet. Typically half of the people show up in time for the opener and half of those are trying to talk to each other during the songs. An opener really has to do something special to excite a crowd in this kind of environment and for the audience in attendance at the Uptown Theater, Missy Higgins was absolutely captivating. Her expressive and slightly sassy style was a great complement to Ben Folds and perfect for a small theater like the Uptown. A good indicator of how well an opener is doing is the difference between the crowd noise during the songs and in between. Let’s just say that a lot of headliners would be jealous of the loud applause after and near silence during each song.

Try as I might, I was not able to find a recording of that night’s performance. I did however find an excellent recording of a concert that was taped about a year before in Hollywood, California.

I came across this really amazing concert completely by accident while searching for recordings of the band the Zutons.  Instead of the Zutons I found Mark Ronson and his band teamed up with the BBC Orchestra and numerous guests for a one time engagement on the BBC series Electric Proms.  The result is a mix of familiar and not so familiar covers by a wide range of uber talented musicians. 

I recommend cranking it up on this one....

After what seems like an eternity the 2008 election came to conclusion this week. I know I stayed non-partisan in my previous postings but I’m going to break away from that for a moment and tell you that I am absolutely thrilled to have Barack Obama as my next president.

So with the election out of the way I don’t have much else to talk about at the moment so I’m going to get back to focusing a little more strictly on the music. For this show I have for you 13 songs from The Black Keys’ May 13th, 2008 concert in Washington, D.C. I actually hadn’t intended to make a political connection for this show but I guess it must have slipped in subconsciously because this was the concert I picked out among the several that I downloaded. I’ve only been listening to the Black Keys fairly recently and have never seen them live, but this recording really blew me away. In fact until researching for this show I wasn’t even aware that there were only two members in the band. Despite having only two members they are able to create a live show that is more powerful than most bands twice their size. Now I present to you the Black Keys….

One last election posting before it's all over. This is a great recording of Dave and Tim playing in their home state of Virginia. As Dave puts it, he's a "real" Virginian and he's voting for Barack.

Ideally I would have gotten this posted sooner than the day before the election.  However it looks like you can still get free music downloads from HeadCount.org by pledging to vote.  Free downloads are available from Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Wilco w/ the Fleet Foxes, Younger Brother Live, and many more, but this offer may end after the election is over.  Click the following link for your freebies.

From now until tomorrow you can download Todd Snider's new album completely free.

http://www.toddsnider.net/store/product/1/Peace-Queer

Unfortunately for me I picked this up a couple weeks ago before I knew this.  However, he's the type of artist that I feel good about paying for his CDs.  He puts on great live shows and has an awesome taping policy so I probably owe him a few extra bucks for all the free live stuff I have listened to.

The album is only 8 tracks and includes a nice cover of Fortunate Son.  I would say that overall this is more of a die hard Todd Snider album rather than one for the masses but it's worth a listen.

Besides downloading tons of live music another hobby of mine is listening to mashups.  If this is a new term for you, a mashup is a song created from parts of two or more songs put together. 

I've been making my own mashup compilations for a while and this is one I've recently been working on for a Halloween party this Friday.  Feel free to use it at a Halloween gathering near you!

The past two episodes I have started the show off with a message to encourage you to vote. So it’ll come as no surprise then that with less than 2 weeks before one of the most important elections in US history that is exactly how I will begin this one. I will continue to stay non-partisan so I’ve included links to both candidates websites where you can read more about their stances on key issues which hopefully will be how you are making your decision this November 4th.

http://www.barackobama.com/issues/
http://www.johnmccain.com/Informing/Issues/

Another good resource is factcheck.org which is a great website that monitors the factual accuracy of statements made by the candidates and their campaigns. Please check it out before taking those attack ads on TV at face value.

For this episode’s music I am featuring a Canadian band that was recorded in 2005 and isn’t currently touring so you might not think there is a political connection. In fact I downloaded this concert while searching for political songs for my last episode. In search of anything Bruce Springsteen, I came across a concert by the Arcade Fire playing a cover of his song “State Trooper”. It is the eighth track on the set list in case you are listening for it. My apologies go out to those listeners that are getting sick of this political stuff and I thank you for staying with me.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Live Music Podcast episode 35. If you are joining us from the Live Music Blog then let me welcome you back for Part 2 of Keep on Votin’ in the Free World. If not make sure you check out Part 1.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, the theme for this episode is registering new voters. Voter registration deadlines are fastly approaching in many states, with October 4th being the first, so there is no time to waste if you aren’t yet registered. Even if you are not planning on voting it is still a very good idea to register in case you make the decision to vote when it’s too late. There really aren’t any downsides to registering…it’s fast and requires very little effort. A great place to start the process is by going to non-partisan websites Rockthevote.com or HeadCount.org to begin the registration process or to check the voter registration deadlines in your state.

Part 2 of Keep on Votin’ in the Free World takes place where Part 1 left off with more great sounding audience recordings featuring politically charged music. Once again all music was downloaded via archive.org and bt.etree.org for artists with open taping policies. Thanks again to the bands for allowing these recordings and to the tapers that made them. Please enjoy part 2 and if you still need to register do it today!

1) A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall @ - Edie Brickell - 1990-07-14
2) Ohio # - Brian Dolzani - 2006-05-29
3) Fortunate Son $ - Todd Snider - 2008-08-04

If you are living in the US it’s pretty hard not to get sucked into all things political right now and if you were hoping for an escape from it in this podcast you will be sorely disappointed. As Bono has shown us music and politics go hand in hand and although the LMP doesn’t officially support a candidate we do think voting is important enough to be featured on a LMP PSA.

The voter registration deadlines are fastly approaching in many states, including my home state of Missouri where the last day to register is October 8th. Even if you haven’t made up your mind on who to vote for or even whether or not you will vote, the LMP strongly encourages you to register anyways in case you make up your mind when it’s too late. It only takes about 3 minutes and can even be completed online by going to either voteforchange.com or johnmccain.com.

One contest that does not require expensive ad campaigns and complicated polling is for the title of Greatest Band in the World. This episode features music from the one band that experts and fans can all agree on. I’m speaking, of course, about Tenacious D. The dynamic duo of Kyle Gass and Jack Black take rocking to a whole new level and have even been known to rock a face clean off. If you are offended by crude language or humor of any kind please look elsewhere. For all others please enjoy Tenacious D from their January 22, 2002 stop at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.

Ladies and gentlemen it’s time once again time for a Live Music Podcast public service announcement or LMP PSA for short. After many years of listening to audience tapings I have found an easy way to increase the listening pleasure for recordings with less than perfect audio quality.  Simply switch out your speakers for headphones. I can’t give you an explanation of the physics to why they sound better through headphones, but next time you are ready to throw out a sub par recording try out this tip before you do so.

Here at the Live Music Podcast I do my best to bring you only the best sounding recordings but even a good recording is usually improved through headphones. For this episode especially, low quality shouldn’t be an issue since the recording I have comes straight from the soundboard.

Matt Costa is pretty much what you’d expect from the same record label as Jack Johnson and G Love and Special Sauce. Of course I mean that it the best way possible, as his songs are in the same vein of laid back chill music with soul. The music I have here ranges from the very catchy upbeat single “Sunshine”, to the slower melodic “Astair”, to the electric guitar and harp driven “Emergency Call”.

Follow the link below to listen to the full concert
Matt Costa - Boulder, CO - 05/29/08

1) Long Wait
2) Ballad Of Miss Kate
3) Vienna

Despite having an extraordinary set list for you on this episode the mood is somber. Like I’m sure many of you, I was shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Dave Matthews Band sax player Leroi Moore. Speaking as a huge fan his loss is already sinking in but a deepest sympathy goes out to Leroi’s close friends and family. In addition to being a very gifted musician, every story that I have heard about his life off stage portrayed him as an all around great person.

The music for this show is a compilation of some of my favorite Leroi moments from past DMB concerts. These songs together celebrate a life that was cut too short but sweet for certain.

The LMP returns with another festival concert, this time from last years moe.down. The lineup for moe.down 8 was stellar and included the up and coming singer/songwriter Amos Lee. I’m not as familiar with his music as some of the other bands that I have featured so I’m going to keep this intro fairly short. I would describe his music as a hybrid of folk and soul with Norah Jones coming to mind with a few of his songs.

The live performance of his songs came across very well and it sounded like the crowd was digging it even if the style of music different from that of the festival’s founding fathers. The band also seemed to have a lot of fun, even pulling a Rick Roll on the crowd with a medley including Rick Astley’s 80s pop hit.

Please enjoy Amos Lee and company from their September 02, 2007 performance in Turin, New York.

In case you missed it on the Live Music Blog last week the Raconteurs have launched a live section on their website where you can listen to streaming audio from several concerts.  Currently there are nine shows from 2007 and one for 2008 but hopefully more will be added in the future.  If you like the Raconteurs you are definitely going to enjoy this.

The music for this episode comes once again from Bonnaroo 2008 which was just too jam packed with great performances to be contained in one episode. This time I will be playing songs from the Saturday night headliner concert featuring Pearl Jam in their Bonnaroo debut.

There is no doubt that Pearl Jam was more than due to join the amazing group of musicians that have played Bonnaroo. Not only are they a great band but they have also been a champion of the live music scene since their early days. Back in 1994 they went head to head against the mighty Ticketmaster in response to inflated service charges. In addition to this they have provided their fans with a huge collection of live music content through the Pearl Jam Official Bootlegs series. These bootlegs have captured almost every single show the band has played since 2000.

The recording that I will be playing is not the official bootleg but Pearl Jam’s taping policy is kind enough to allow for unofficial recordings as well. Interesting to note on this recording is that taper makes note that some of his equipment was confiscated at a Doobie Brothers show and had to borrow gear from other tapers at Bonnaroo. That pretty much sums up the scene at Bonnaroo, great music and great people coming together. I hope you enjoy the tunes.

It seems to be festival season here at the LMP with back to back shows featuring 2008 music festivals.  For this episode I will be playing music from the quaint little music and arts festival known as Bonnaroo.  As always the lineup this year was stacked which made it pretty difficult to pick just one.  However, I recently downloaded a show that distinguished itself from the pack, Mark Lynn's taping of My Morning Jacket. 

Up to this point I hadn't heard very much of their music, but I've been seeing a lot of buzz about them in the live music blogosphere.  I especially had heard good things about their Bonnaroo set and had to check it out for myself.  The first thing that I noticed about this set was the length, just shy of 4 hours.  To entertain a crowd for that long you need to bring your A game and they definitely did that.  Powerful musical performances, a great selection of covers, and guest appearances by Kirk Hammett of Metallica and comedian Zach Galifianakis all added up to one unforgetable show.  The sound quality of the taping was also stellar which is made even more impression when you consider that it was raining for part of the set.

I suppose if you've made as much money as Microsoft you can afford to stream concerts for free.  Good news for Jack Johnson fans out there because you can watch his entire performance from this year's Kokua Festival here

This almost makes up for all those blue screens :)

Welcome to episode #28 where I am pleased to bring you a band that I wasn't sure I'd ever see on the LMP. When I saw that Cake was in the line-up for this year's Wakarusa festival I hoped there might be a chance that a taper would get their set. Fortunately for me Brian Price was able to pull off a great sounding recording and especially fortunate since I missed out on Wakarusa this year.

Cake's catchy guitar riffs, blazing trumpet solos, and off the wall lyrics all make them a great band, but I don't know if they've gotten a lot of live attention. I've seen them a couple times in the past and take if from me if you are fan you will enjoy the show. You can't really argue with the statistics, 9 out of 10 German tourist interviewed agree that their songs rock even though they miss the rising action a little bit. If you didn't get the reference check out the the video to Short Skirt, Long Jacket at about 3:30 in.

For those unfamiliar the Raconteurs they are a band of amazing musicians who’s lead singer also doubles as the front-man for a band called the White Stripes. On the music scene since 2005, I only recently became a big fan of theirs. A friend of mine lent me their latest album “Consolers of the Lonely” which I listened to almost exclusively for a solid couple of weeks. I followed that up with seeing their concert in Kansas City last April, which converted me into a devoted fan for life.

If you get a chance to get out and see them on their current tour please take it and you will not be disappointed. Here’s a recording of their October 28th, 2006 performance in Las Vegas, Nevada if you need some nudging to drop your hard earned cash on tickets.

Thanks to Carrington Crawford for the taping duties!

So this is an email I received the other day from the Itunes Store...

Dear Podcast Owner

The following podcast has not been included in the iTunes podcast directory.

Name: The Live Music Podcast
Feed URL: http://www.livemusicpodcast.net/rss

Submissions may not be included in the directory for a variety of reasons. For more information, please see the podcast technical specification at http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/techspecs.html.

Sincerely,

The iTunes Store Team

As you can imagine this was quite a shock to me since I have been podcasting for a little over a year and have been listed in the store for almost as long.  I have tried emailing them back for more of an explanation as to my termination but so far have not received a response.  The only explanation that I can think of is that 1) the management of one of the artists I featured complained or 2) someone who works for the store thought I was infringing on copyrights.  It's tough for me to know since the email contained such little information and rather than emailing me to allow me to remove any particular episodes they kill the entire show...way to take the shotgun approach.  Whoever it was probably failed to read my website's MP3 disclaimer which explains that I will voluntarily remove any music at the owners request.

The good news....fortunately this will not affect anyone that is already subscribed to my podcast.  Subscribed listeners should receive new episodes of the show automatically but if not you may have to re-add the rss feed.  If you haven't subscribed in Itunes you can still subscribe by selecting "Subscribe to Podcast" from the Advanced menu and entering http://www.livemusicpodcast.net/rss into the text box. 

The biggest downer of this is that new listeners will have a much harder time finding my podcast without the aid of the Itunes store.  That being said, word of mouth will probably be the most effective advertisement which I leave in your hands. Another thing you can do to help out the LMP is email the Itunes Store to try to get the show reinstated.   If you would like to file a complaint click here and maybe if enough people bother them they will listen.

Thanks in advance for your support!

As you might remember from the last episode, this show marks the 1 year anniversary here at the LMP. It has been a year filled with some pretty amazing live performances and I'm hoping the following year will bring more of the same. Looking back on the last 12 months I am blown away at the number of listeners that we have received and also the positive comments I have gotten from some of you. Thank you to everyone for tuning in and for your support of the show.

On that note I'll begin the 2nd year of the live music with a download featuring two of my favorite musicians which were also featured in the very first LMP. This time however they will be joined by a few more friends. During the winter of 2003-2004 Dave Matthews and a few close pals including Tim Reynolds and Trey Anastatio combined musical forces for a limited stop tour in support of Dave's solo album "Some Devil". I was lucky enough to catch their stop in Chicago and to this day it still sits at the top of my all time concert list. In all fairness to other shows I've seen, this was really 3 or 4 shows in one. The concert began with Dave and Tim on acoustics, followed up by the full band, then by Dave and Trey on acoustics and finally an encore with the full band. The variety of songs and band's energy really stand out to me and you can tell my the crowd's energy that everyone else there was equally impressed by it.

The songs I am featuring were included as part of a Best of Dave and Friends compilation I downloaded from dreamingtree.org. Thanks to Brian at antsmarching.org for assembling it!

Tristan Prettyman's second release entitled "Hello" came out recently and fully exceeded all of my expectations. A solid listen all the way through, instead of her sophmore release slumping it appears that she has had a sophmore sensation making her way to #2 on Itunes top 10 most downloaded albums. Amazingly the full album can be downloaded from Itunes for only $5.99 which makes it a sure bet if you are looking for somthing new to listen to!

As this being the 25th episode it is somewhat of a milestone for the LMP. Being as such I wanted to make it a bit extra special, but then I realized that the next episode will mark the show's one year anniversary. So after much debate I decided that the best option was to make both episodes special, but I will save the party horns for next time.

The music for this episode comes from what is easily one of my favorite all time downloads and features singer/song-writer Ray Lamontagne. If this is your first encounter with Mr. Lamontagne's music be prepared to get some goosebumps.  His unique singing style combines a husky whisper with powerful raw emotion that comes straight from his soul. Combine that with Ray's excellent song writing, a very talented ensemble of musicians, and near soundboard quality you have a truly remarkable recording.

In the last episode I briefly commented on all of the festivals that are in store for this summer.  However, some festivals don't bother waiting until the busy season and get things started off early.  One of the first major US music festivals for the last 20 years has been South by Southwest held in Austin, TX.  There were a ton of great bands that played there this year so it was a bit difficult picking just one.  I ended up deciding on the North Mississippi Allstars who's musical style I believe represents this southernly located festival.  If you'd like to find other audience recordings from this year's SXSW check out the nearly full list over at largeheartedboy.com:

Is it just me or has there been an explosion of new music festivals in recent years? If you don't believe me take journey over to the Live Music Blog and search for the word "festival". The nice thing about all of these new festivals is that no matter where you live you are probably within driving distance to one. Currently I'm making plans with some friends to head over to Wakarusa which will once again be held in Lawrence, KS.

The appeals of festivals are many but one big draw is that you get to see a lot of your favorite bands in one trip and also get exposure to new bands that you might not otherwise have seen live. From a live music taping perspective an additional benefit of the festival scene is that the taping policy of the festival will often times trump that of each band or record label. The result is that live recordings of bands that don't usually taped get injected into the taping community.

The band I am featuring in this episode is one such example. Despite very few live recordings in circulation, here is Neil Young and Crazy Horse live from Bonnaroo 2003.

It is time once again for a LMP PSA. If you are new to the live music downloading scene and need help with downloading and converting different file formats check out the Getting Started link in the upper left part of the page. I’d also be happy to answer any questions via .

The band leader from this episode has been included on more episodes of the LMP than any other but this will be the first time she and her band get the stage all to themselves. The first sighting appeared on Episode 14 when Grace Potter joined Gov’t Mule for amazing renditions of Emmy Lou Harris’ Angel Band followed by the Fleetwood Mac classic Gold Dust Woman. If you haven’t heard that episode yet, Grace Potter more than holds her own on both songs which is quite a feat considering the legendary singers being covered.

The second appearance came on Episode 16 which featured Grace Potter with her bandmates the Nocturnals during Warren Haynes 19th Annual X-Mas Jam. For this episode they laid down a jammed out version of their song ‘Watching You’ which is most likely responsible for them entering my download radar. After hearing that show I picked up several more really good recordings but held off on pulling the trigger on a podcast until I found just the right one show. I’m really glad that I did wait because "the one" turned out to be recorded last month and truly blew me away. Here is Grace Potter and the Nocturnals from their February 21st concert in New York City.

If you like Grace Potter's style of music you might also enjoy some of the music featured on Honest Tunes Radio.  I've been listening to the podcast for a while now and dig their mix of live tunes and in studio interviews with some great bands from the jam and roots scene.

The featured concert for this episode brings a slightly heavier tone to the LMP than my previous shows. Last year marked the return of a one of the greatest bands in the alternative rock scene. On May 22nd, 2007 the Smashing Pumpkins returned to a stage in Paris after more than a six year hiatus. Original band members Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlain proved throughout that 2007 tour that they still could rock a live show just as they had in their earlier days.

The concert that I selected from the year of the Pumpkin's reunion was taped in Normal, Illinois on October 4th. Part of the reason I liked this recording was the great sound quality but also because of it's proximity to the Pumpkin's old stomping grounds in Chicago. Due to it's location and the time of year, in the recording you can hear the crowd chanting in support of the Chicago Cubs. It turns out that they were playing game 2 of the National League Divisional playoffs that same night which would make a very difficult decision for any fan of the band and the team. Also, a quick warning to St Louis Cardinal fans out there that if you decide to listen to the full concert Billy Corgan has a few unkind words to say about your team. I choose to stay neutral on this and leave this part out of the podcast but the rest of the show is a solid listen no matter which team you root for.

This episode features music by former Soul Coughing front man Mike Doughty during his 2000 solo tour.  I'm a pretty big fan of Mr. Doughty but I especially enjoyed this set because it is one of the most intimate recordings that I have listened to.  In a large part this is due to the venue being the Maintenance Shop in Ames, IA.  I went to college in Ames and the M-Shop, as it is known, seats only a couple hundred people.  For a personal concert setting this is great but only as long as you get tickets before they sell out.  I unfortunately found this out the hard way when Jack Johnson sold it out in under 10 minutes.

Another reason for it's intimacy is that following almost every song, Doughty is interacting with the crowd in some way.  While this might not be for everyone I think it is something that he really excels at and gives you the feeling of experiencing the concert in person.

There has been a few times where I have heard a new artist and immediately wanted to go see them live.  Then shortly later I find out that I had missed the tour by a couple weeks.  Well this happened about a year ago when a friend told me about someone he had been listening to named Regina Spektor. 

Fortunately I was able to make up for my lateness to Regina's music by seeing her performance at the Uptown theater in Kansas City last November.  Her singing was absolutely amazing and lived up to everything that I had been hoping for the entire year of waiting.  I had expected her vocal range to blow me away so that was no surprise, but what amazed me was how she pulls off the entire show solo.  Her talents alternate between grand piano, electric guitar, percussion, and then percussion while playing the piano.  I wouldn't be surprised if she plays piano and guitar during the next show I see.  Her lyrics are also very clever and sometimes quite funny.

The concert that I am featuring was from the same tour as the one I missed and is an excellent sounding recording.  I am very thankful to the audience in San Francisco who are for the most part unnoticeable during the songs, but definitely let Regina hear it in between.  All concerts are not the same in this respect and for the style of music that Regina plays a mellow crow really makes the concert more enjoyable for everyone.

I am prefacing this episode with a shout out to a fellow blogger that has graciously returned from a short hiatus for part of last year.  Justin Ward, who heads up livemusicblog.com, runs one of the most popular and informative blogs about the live music scene.  His posts cover a wide range of topics including early announcements of festival lineups, concert reviews, and even advice on how to survive a 3-4 day music festival.  In addition to all of this the Live Music Blog also has a corresponding podcast featuring some great live recordings which fans of this podcast will most likely enjoy.  That's the end of the plug so I hope you'll check this site out if you haven't already.

Moving on to the featured concert for this episode is one that I have eagerly been anticipating putting together ever since starting this podcast.  The featured concert is from Will Hoge's February 3rd, 2007 performance in Boulder, CO.  I first heard about Will Hoge through a taper in the KC area who at the time was moving to Denver and was going to see him in KC before he left.  Ironically enough he was the one who recorded the show in Boulder, so thanks goes out to Ed for sharing this awesome concert. 

If you have never heard of Will Hoge's music before it's has a ton of energy, but at the same time a very bluesy soulful sound.  The Black Crowes are a pretty good comparison, but Mr. Hoge definitely has a unique sound that is his own.  I didn't have to listen to very many of their songs before I added them to my must see list, so hopefully you will have the same experience with them that I did.

I might be a couple days late but I still want to wish everyone out there a very happy New Year!  I also want to thank you for listening in 2007 and let you know that I look forward to another year of great live music.  I'm not planning on making any major changes in 2008 just yet, but that should be good news if you have enjoyed the show thus far.

I'm kicking off the new year with one of my all time favorite bands to watch live.  The first time I saw Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals was in the summer of 2003 and ever since I have tried my best not to miss a show.  I'm actually kind of surprised that I waited this long to feature one of their concerts, but sadly their live recordings are a somewhat rare occurrence. 

This band is easily one of the most powerful live acts around and on top of that they have produced some wonderful CDs with a lot of commercial success as well.  Having said that, if you have heard songs off their CDs but not performed live I really believe this band take on a completely new form when they get on stage.  Hopefully this podcast will give you a glimpse at what they do live, but it really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.  Please enjoy a sampling from their March 01, 2001 performance recorded in Athens, GA.
