Format: Audio CD
Gauthier's strength as a live performer is evident from the riveting cover of Fred Eaglesmith's "Your Sister Cried" that opens her first live album. Taken at a resolute tempo, Gauthier is at once haggard, reportorial and sympathetic, and her hard-strummed guitar is augmented by dramatic accents, a harmony vocal and a solo from violinist Tania Elizabeth that leaves the audience hooting in appreciation. Together with percussionist Mike Meadows, the trio proves that less can very much be more, as their presentations leave enough space for the vocals, harmonies, lyrics and instruments to each shine, but combine the elements into a musculature that a solo singer-songwriter rarely achieves.

Key to the proceedings is Gauthier's way with a lyric. Whether singing or reciting, she's magnetic as a master storyteller who's in no hurry. Her harmonica and Elizabeth's violin are similarly free in their pace, allowing the solos and accompaniment to ebb and flow with the lyrical mood. The song list includes selections from all but Gauthier's first studio album, with a generous helping of four selections from 1999's Drag Queens and Limousines and three Fred Eaglesmith tunes. She sings of outsiders: a hobo king, an addict and an alcoholic, a disillusioned father, an unmoored adoptee and a repentant murderer. But even with their troubled backgrounds, they form a surprisingly seemly lot, humanized by Gauthier's telling of their stories.

There are autobiographical threads throughout Gauthier's material as she recounts the hidden history of her hometown, personal tribulations and liberations, and the colorful friends with whom she's traveled.

I've been a fan of Mary's work since Drag Queens in Limousines. Songs like "I Drink" and "Mercy Now" have earned her an expanding audience. Well deserved. This live set recaps her career, so far. It's an intimate evening that feels like it's happening in your own comfortable living room. Don't miss the hidden track that ends the CD. I consider this a return to form and a step up after The Foundling which I thought was a misstep, heartfelt and pure, but it just didn't grab me like her others. My brother introduced me to Mary's music years ago after he saw her at McCabe's in SoCal. I've been spreading the word about her among my friends since then.

Format: Audio CD
I've seen New Orleans bred, now Nashville -based, singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier (pronounced Go-shay) at a few International Folk Alliance and Americana Conferences and the Philly Folk Festival and every time she appears she gather new fans. This "live" album - recorded in Texas - will certainly bring in new ones as well. The songs - most composed by Gauthier with three by songwriter Fred Eaglesmith (in a style that fits Gauthier's) - are people stories - much like John Prine and take a few listens. (The digi-pak has no note, nor lyrics; just the track list and the names of the two fine musicians who accompany her.)

The songs cover much of her career with her best known song - "Drag Queens and Limousines" - and another autobiographical song "I Drink". Some of the songs are more spoken than sung - but that's Gauthier's style - and there is little patter with the audience. My favorite is the one "upbeat" song that closes the album. The New Orleans influenced "Wheel Inside The Wheel". Putting it on the end is a good choice, because you'll find yourself still singing the chorus as you remove the CD from your player.

I read the review by fellow reviewer "Dinger" but I know of no "hidden track" on this disc. There are 11 songs (ending with "Wheel inside the Wheel") and the total disc time is 61 minutes

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

A fine live album by a great songwriter. Good performance and well recorded. Well worth your time, not a bad place to discover this under appreciated artist.
