4.0 out of 5 stars I Want More! March 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This comes with a CD and DVD. It is sold two different ways:
1. CD+DVD in a standard CD jewel case
2. DVD+CD in one of those standard DVD cases
They both contain the same material. The CD+DVD is usually cheaper than the DVD+CD, but sometimes not.
The CD contains 13 tracks. The DVD has the same songs plus 2 extra tracks. The DVD has a few extras, like interviews.
This is from a concert in San Francisco, and features a band of 45 musicians and singers. Dan Hicks claims that everyone he ever played with is on the stage. The most famous version of the Hot Licks is there, along with the Acoustic Warriors. Also appearing is It's A Beautiful Day's David LaFlamme. All 45 musicians are on stage during the whole show.
The biggest problem with this set is that it just isn't enough. There are 15 songs, and around one and a half hours of music. It should be twice as long and it would still be highly entertaining. With so many musicians and such a huge library of material, you just don't get enough of anything to be fully satisfied. I don't know if all the songs from the concert were included on the DVD.
There are some great moments on this CD. As always, the show stopper is I Scare Myself, with 5 violinists taking turns doing the solos. (Note that Thomas Dolby used to play this song in concert).
The sound quality of this set is OK. It starts out bad, but gets better later in the show. The vocals sound out of place in the first track. The audience drowns the band on some of the early tracks. But later there places where the acoustic intruments are sharp and clear. Note that is hard to get a good sounding Dan Hicks CD. A poor job was done on converting most of the Hot Licks albums to CD. The Most of Dan Hicks is one that has great sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dan Hicks for the Ages November 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Last year, Dan Hicks celebrated his 60th birthday at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco. Joining him for the occasion were what seems to be a zillion alumni of his various bands, including Mike Wilhelm (from the Charlatans, for whom Hicks played drums before going solo); the pub rock band Eggs Over Easy; and of course any number of Hot Licks, Acoustic Warriors, Lickettes, etc.
The CD of the affair consists of 13 cuts from the concert. The "live" recording isn't exactly studio quality, and the performances are pretty loose. That said, it's a lot of fun.
Not as much fun, though, as the included DVD, which includes everything from the album, two more songs, plus interviews, a comentary track and all kinds of stuff like that.
Again, the DVD probably wouldn't stand on its own -- the director seemed to have a hard time keeping his cameras on the right soloists, for instance -- but as a combination with the CD, it's a great bargain. I'd recommend one or another of Hicks' studio albums for beginners, but fans should find much to enjoy about this historic package.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite classic Dan Hicks October 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD/DVD combo sound promising:Dan Hicks' 60th birthday, with all of his musical cohorts from over the ages and some of his greatest songs. The problem is that there are too many people on stage and too little rehearsal (although it is pretty good for a single rehearsal). While there are great solo spots (notably from Sid Paige), this album is not as tight as what we have come to expect from Hicks. Dan also sounds a little off, and not quite as funny as usual. I would highly recommend another Hick live album, Alive and Lickin', as a five star alternative to this, if you're looking for a tight band, great music and good humor from a true American music original.
