Product Description

A classic set captured for the popular 'Austin City Limits' series, remastered & packaged in a digipak.

Amazon.com

Those who have experienced a Robert Earl Keen show in his native Texas know it can be hard to hear the artist amid all the whooping and partying of his rabidly loyal following. This 2001 taping from the Austin City Limits series gives the singer-songwriter's range the attention it deserves. An eight-minute rendition of Keen's signature anthem, "The Road Goes On Forever," shifts that epic into overdrive, as the furious interplay of guitarist Rich Brotherton and steel guitarist Marty Muse finds the band firing on all cylinders. Yet the subtler selections are every bit as impressive, with his reflective rendition of Townes Van Zandt's "Snowin' on Raton" and the brooding melancholy of Johhny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone" highlighting the performance. Though Austin City Limits typically condenses an artist's appearance into a half hour for airing, this CD (with the performance also available as a DVD) presents the full studio concert. --Don McLeese

No. 2 Live Dinner has always been my favorite Robert Earl Keen CD. However, I think Live from Austin may be even better. The sound is better than Dinner and the tracks are a really good cross-section of REK's best stuff. Aside from a "new" version of Dreadful Selfish Crime (my favorite REK song) that is, well, different, the CD is flawless (I like the track, I'm just too accustomed to the versions on No. 2 Live Dinner and on Party Songs). I would LOVE to see the DVD, but cannot find here in stores (but I'm seeing REK live tomorrow night, so the problem will soon be solved).

This is my favorite record REK has made. No. 2 Live Dinner was very disappointing because you can't hear Keen for all of the yelling/singing from the crowd, it ruins that album. "The Live Album" is a great one, but this one is even better IMO. What you've got here is an older REK with his full catalog with him - without the drunken fans screaming over his voice. He is great live and this time around you can actually hear him clearly.

I've always been of the opinion that Robert Earl Keen's live albums have always sounded better then his studio versions. This cd is no different. I feel that he puts more energy into his live songs.

The songs on this album are a great selection, each song is wonderful.

My favorites include:

"Shades of Gray"
"Blow You Away"
"Dreadful Selfish Crime"
"I'm Coming Home"

Oh heck...this album has all the good ones...I would just end up listing every track on this album.

The only drawback if there is one, would be that I miss that there are no stories/intros to the songs. They are always awesome with REK, don't know why they didn't include them. Maybe the dvd has them, I will have to buy it and see. Not a deal breaker by any means though.

What are you waiting for? Order it!
