Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny

In the wake of the rather acrimonious breakup of his previous band, Galaxie 500, singer/guitarist Dean Wareham issued a 1991 solo EP, Anesthesia, and appeared on the brilliant Mercury Rev single "Car Wash Hair" before announcing the formation of a new band, dubbed Luna, in 1992. Originally named Luna 2, the trio was a kind of alternative pop supergroup ... Read more in Amazon's Luna Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

This product of two different live recordings made during Luna's 1999 Days of Our Nights tour expertly captures Dean Wareham and company's mesmerizing blend of swirl and jangle, wit and cynicism. An admirable set list, solid sound quality, and choice bits of clever banter separate this from any less official live recording. Well-chosen representatives from each album are enhanced by delicious renditions of encore staples "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Fourth of July" (which will delight any Galaxie 500 fan). Live provides both the die-hard and the casual enthusiast a means to drift into a dimly lit, smoky venue and become absorbed in the entrancing world created at a Luna performance. --Liz Riley

So I am a relative newcomer to the bands music, but I have seen them live. Although I agree that this CD is not nearly as magical as the real show, I have yet to hear a live CD that is the same as the experience. And isn't this the whole concept of recorded sound in the first place, to try and imitate the live event. We all know an imitation is never as good as the real thing. Seeing them in concert makes this CD even more special because the memory of the show can live on in your head over and over.
A great selection of songs from a great band to. This CD had all of my favorites, and I love this version of Puptent (the album version never quite did it for me). If you are a luna fan it is a must have, and this would be the second album after Bewitched I would recomend to a newcomer.

This was my first Luna record. What a way to begin!! I listened to the first couple of tracks on numerous occasions at the listening booths of numerous music stores and eventually broke down and bought it, mainly for the wonderfully enticing rendition of "Bewitched." Upon listening to the album in its entirety, and on a decent stereo, I was utterly amazed and completely smitten with this wonderous band. I have since bought a few of their other recordings and also had the opportunity to seem the band perform live down in Providence. This disk is perfect for both the Luna novice and the long-time fan.

Throughout the course of a band's career, there is usually a need to "fill in" a gap of time between studio albums. The notorious "live album" usually fills this gap and more often then not, these collections are nothing more then mundane representations of the tracks recorded on previous albums.
But most bands aren't like Luna.
While they have released some of the most consistent albums of the past decade (Bewitched and Penthouse are the best of their collection thus far), Luna's forte is definitely live performance. This album does a fairly good job of capturing what it's like to see a Luna show; all the favorites are here ("Sideshow By The Seashore", "Tiger Lily", "Lost In Space") along with some surprises ("Bonnie and Clyde", "4th of July").
Along with the old favorites, there are some questionable selections, and the most demanding fans will ask themselves why certain favorites are missing ("Time To Quit" was the first one that I thought of), but all in all this album serves both as an excellent introduction to Luna's music (every album is represented by at least one track) and a must have for the full time Luna fans.
The high point of this collection is clearly the cover of "4th of July" -- and the beautiful guitar work of Dean Wareham and Sean Eden. Both have a unique and recognizable guitar style and when they allow themselves to "stretch out" on these tracks, they really shine.
While capturing Luna's live energy on a cd is next to impossible, this album comes close. There's even some band and crowd banter to fill in the gaps.

I've only been listening to Luna for about two years now and can't be considered an expert. I kick myself one every couple of months for having lived in NYC in the 90's and seeing their name in the paper and yet never going to see them. I did get to see Dean and Britta play a show and renting that dvd they have really gives me an idea of how fine they were and are! Anyhow, I've bought all the albums and for what it's worth I listen to this the most. Maybe cause I used to be into jambands and the quality of a live cd doesn't bother me as long as there's some rocking nuiances that aren't on the album originally. There's plenty here!

Often times live records are a let down: lots of filler, weak performances or poor sound quality. You won't find that to be the case with Luna Live. Every song on here is strong. The performances are exceptional, and well served by the mix. Dean and Sean in particular stretch out and PLAY and it is a good thing to hear. One of the best live records in my collection. You will not be disappointed.

I have seen Luna play live 4 times in three years. They are a great show. Sadly this live album does not, with a few exceptions, capture the audience or the aura of the shows they were recording from. Also, mostly the 'standard' songs are offered here. You can get the LP to hear 4 others songs. But there are no rare Luna songs presented here. I would say any Luna fan should buy a copy, and people who aren't sure about Luna should, too, but just don't expect anything earth shattering. Unfortunately these expectations fall short of the concert experience.
