Live-in-studio performances are a radio staple in big cities coast-to-coast, but no one does it with the clout of Los Angeles station KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic program and its influential host Nic Harcourt. The most recent compilation of diverse recordings--without dubs or production tricks--will appeal to fans of any of the 13 artists and to those looking to inflate their music perspectives. The curtain opens with the Polyphonic Spree’s crescendo-building pop symphony spiritual "It’s the Sun," which quiets, then meshes into the Flaming Lips’ bare-bones reading of "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1." Damien Rice, Paul Weller and Radiohead all pull the plug on restrained, yet uniquely commanding performances before "eclectic" earns its title on My Morning Jacket’s blistering full-band rocker "One Big Holiday." After Interpol and Franz Ferdinand make stalwart contributions, Sarah McLachlan, accompanied only by a piano, recites in hushed tones why she is the "Answer," before a solo Steve Earle takes the listener on a journey to "Jerusalem." The poignant presentation by the rabble-rousing troubadour serves as an optimistic closer to another successful anthology. --Scott Holter

Sounds Eclectic 3 is the third in a series of live recordings made at KCRW (NPR 89.9 FM, Santa Monica CA).

This album features a variety of different musicians (hence the name eclectic), from The Flaming Lips to Franz Ferdinand.

Morning Becomes Eclectic, the radio show from which the live recordings were taken, has a fresh feel that contrasts with the canned, advertisement driven attitude of most other "popular" radio stations. This CD captures that feeling well, and makes transitions from one music genre to another without alienating the listener.

Why four stars, you ask? Eclectic-based music usually has at least one song that you won't like....

Interested in buying this but not sure if it's your style? Listen to Morning Becomes Eclectic (and other programs) at [...] first.

This collection of live recordings is taken from LA-based radio station K-CRW's "Sounds Eclectic" series of broadcasts. Each performance was recorded live in their studios with the choicest tracks being released on this great CD. The tracks cover a wide variety of music genres: from Kinky's Spanish-language track "Mirando De Lado" and the bombastic and joyful "It's the Sun" from The Polyphonic Spree to more mellow tracks such as "Answer" from Sarah McLachlan and the quielty beautiful "The Blower's Daughter" from Damien Rice. There's a little bit of everything, and that's what makes this a great recording - it introduces you to artists to which you may not normally lend an ear. Favorite tracks: "Amongst Butterflies" by Paul Weller and "Flying High" by Jem.

As volume 1 and volume 2, here you are another interesting collection of live versions of some new artists on the radio wave.
Personally I'd like to see in the stores more cd's with excerpts from Morning Becomes Eclectic performances, as often they have really cool artists that unfortunately are not inserted in their compilation. But that's my personal opinion.

Sorry for my English: I'm from Italy.
