On September 18, 2007, the band performed the complete album live at Town Hall in New York City.The lineup for this stellar evening captured on August And Everything After: Live At Town Hall was: Jim Bogios (drums, vocals, percussion); David Bryson (electric and acoustic guitars, vocals); Adam Duritz (vocals); Charles Gillingham (piano, hammond B-3 organ, accordian, harmonica, vocals); David Immergluck (electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, pedal steel, vocals), Millard Powers (bass, vocals, piano); Dan Vickrey (electric and acoustic guitars, banjo, vocals). This live showcase of their complete debut album proves what truly great performing artists Counting Crows are.

I remember I once disliked this band, but that was before I actually owned "August and Everything After". Now I reach for that disc as often as my Neil Young and Jayhawks cd's. Well, maybe not Neil. If Counting Crows were gonna do one of their albums live, this was obviously the one to do. It's like half hits. Their "best of" collection was half their debut. All the songs are excellent, which made for one of the best albums of the 90's.

I think the live versions here are great. If nothing else it's nice to hear them freshened up. They stretch them out and let them breathe without changing the basic song beyond recognition. Not better, but different. Good different.

You could tell "Counting Crows" were shooting for "REM/U2" status with the debut, and while they may not have become a 5 star band, they did make a 5 star album. They almost did it again here.

Counting Crows have been one my favorite bands for nearly twenty years now. Their debut album (August) is still an amazing album from start to finish. Though I love hearing and seeing them live, I have to say that this is just an average show. For those unfamiliar with their other live stuff or newer material, this is an OK place to start, but while there are a few standout tracks, there are several that add little to the originals. I also didn't think Adam's voice was as strong on this as it could be. For a terrific live album, I would highly recommend Across A Wire, which is easily a five star record. I was able to buy this on Amazon as a five dollar MP3 deal. It was easily worth that much. Even bad recordings of this band are better than a lot of stuff that's out there.

A few notes on this release:

* It is a live show where the band plays the August and Everything album through
* It is a double LP in a gatefold jacket
* Pressed on white vinyl

The show is fantastic. One of the great American bands revisiting one of the great releases of the 90s. This many years after the original studio release the tunes have changed, but they remain great. The vinyl pressing is really good quality and brings the show to life.

This album is just amazing. Counting Crows are a great live band and this album proves it. You can really hear the passion behind this group of songs that made this band popular in the 90s. I highly recommend this cd to any Counting Crows fans. This album offers a different perspective from the original album so it feels like you're buying a new cd. Enjoy.

I'm a pretty big Crows fan. August is in my top 5 favorite albums of all time. When I first heard of this I was very excited to be able to hear the entirety of August live. What a brilliant idea! What a great gift to the fans who've been on-board since August came out! Then I noticed Raining in Baltimore was missing. Well, right there the project is a failure. You can't re-do your big debut, fan-favorite album, track by track and leave one out! Forget that Raining in Baltimore is a fantastic song in it's own right.

To add insult to injury, they sort of break half-way through Round Here and jam a half-hearted lyrical soup of Raining in Baltimore. Imagine the band is stuck playing the same section of Round here for 5 minutes and Adam is having some sort of stroke where he's suddenly singing random lyrics from Raining in Baltimore, not in order, just spewing them out losing all meaning and purpose. Raining in Baltimore: the magnetic poetry version. Then they decide to finish Round Here. In my opinion, both songs are hopelessly ruined. Well to be fair, the first and last part of Round Here (the parts that actually are Round Here) are good, but I don't have the ability to ignore the 5 minutes of chaotic mess in the middle. Why Crows? Why?

The rest of this album is really great. I'm really disappointed they attempted this project and then decided to ruin two of the eleven songs. Maybe they'll try again in 10 years and do it right. Yes, it's their music. I'm aware they have artistic license to do whatever they want with their music. My point is they're selling this as "August and Everything... LIVE!" And it's just not what was advertised.

First, let me say this: Every Counting Crows fan should have this CD/DVD in their collection. "August and Everything After" is a classic CD, and this live recording does it full justice. If you're a fan (and I don't think you'll be buying this if you're not) these are all the songs from that album you'd wish to hear live.

Oddly, though, this isn't *all* of August and Everything After. "Raining In Baltimore" shows up as alt lyrics for "Round Here". But it really works there. If you feel like you need a reason to get this CD, I think an 11-minute version of "Round Here" should just about cover it. ;)

There are more standard versions of songs on the CD, as well. "Omaha", for instance, is lyrically the same as you'd find on the studio CD. "Mr. Jones" also sounds fairly standard, although you can tell from Adam's inflection that he's having a lot of fun with it.

One of the things I really love about the CD is the introductions to "Perfect Blue Buildings" and "Sullivan Street". They give insight into the songs that haven't shown up in past live albums, and they aren't the kinds of things Adam would put out in an interview.

Another highlight of the CD is the mashup of "Rain King" and "Thunder Road". Absolutely amazing.

The CD ends with an astonishing version of "A Murder of One", mashed up with "Doris Day", from Adam's Sordid Humor days.

There are two negatives I can give you about this CD:

1) It's not for casual fans. The fact that you're reading this review probably means you're *not* a casual fan, but if you're considering buying this for someone who is, you probably shouldn't. As a way to tell a "casual fan", ask yourself these questions about him/her:

a) is his/her favorite Counting Crows song "Mr.
