Biography

“This album feels like a giant step into uncharted territory for me,” Steve Martin says of Love Has Come for You, his remarkable new collaboration with Edie Brickell. “When we started, we thought we were just playing around. But when we finished, we realized we weren't.”

Although the new musical partners have already built widely-loved individual bodies of ... Read more in Amazon's Steve Martin Store

Editorial Reviews

Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell, will release their first ever live concert CD/DVD package capturing their extraordinary performance at the historic Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside California last fall. The live performance was recorded for PBS Great Performances and features material from Martin and Brickells Grammy-nominated album Love Has Come For You, as well as music from Martins Grammy nominated collaboration with The Steep Canyon Rangers, Rare Bird Alert, and his Grammy Award winning album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. This special live CD/DVD features Martins unique blend of comedy and bluegrass and is a first class evening of excellent entertainment.

I've not seen Steve Martin in concert with the Steep Canyon Rangers and Edie Brickell so I can't compare the concert captured in this DVD and CD to real life experience. The video does a great job of making you feel almost as if you were there and the production quality of the CD is as good as any studio recording you'll find.

What makes this Live release so enjoyable for me is the variety of music performed. Steve Martin is a stellar banjo player. Edie Brickell has an absolutely beautiful singing voice. The Steep Canyon Rangers offer top-notch singing and instrumentation. All are in fine form here as this release captures what each of them brings to the collaboration much better than Love Has Come for You, their recent studio release. Each of the three is featured or leads at several points in the concert, with great results. Steve Martin also appears to have been working on his singing voice, as he sings more here than in previous releases, and does so well.

Both discs feature tracks from The Crow (Steve Martin), Rare Bird Alert (Steve with the Steep Canyon Rangers), Love Has Come for You (Steve, the Rangers and Edie Brickell) and from Tell the Ones I Love (Steep Canyon Rangers) in addition to a couple of new songs. The DVD captures the concert as it happened, including the introductions and discussions between songs and the comings and goings of the artists. The CD has just the songs but in a different order than the DVD. Both are interesting and entertaining in their own right.

I mentioned the variety of music in this release. The concert includes Steve Martin soloing on two songs, the Steep Canyon Rangers by themselves for two songs of their own material, Steve and the Rangers playing as an ensemble, and all of them plus Edie Brickell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly great from start to finish! March 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD
It's amazing how Steve Martin just keeps on keepin' on! Great comedy, great songwriting, great performances, Steep Canyon and Edie just mind-numbingly good, this set has it all! Yes, a Grammy seems to be in the pocket already!

P.S., even my teenage son, who's into rap and hip-hop, sat down to watch this with his nerdy parents! NOW THAT'S SAYING SOMETHING!

I was lucky enough to get to see what became known among the “bluegrass music set” as “The Steve and Edie Tour” (older folks will understand the reference to the husband and wife duo Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme) when it came through Philly last year. I loved the previous CDs by Martin (both with and without the SCRs) and I’ve seen the SCRs play concerts and have reviewed their CDs as well. Then of course, there was the 2013 Grammy –winning album “Love Has Come For You” that featured all new songs with lyrics by Mrs. Paul Simon (a/k/a Edie Brickell) and lyrics by Martin. All of this comes together in this package which features the full performance in HD from a historic California theater on an 1 2/4 hour DVD plus a CD with just the musical numbers (well most as a CD can only hold so much music).

Martin is funny – and so are the Steeps (Brickell plays it straight) – but he is also talented in the music department. There are at least four different banjos on stage and – unlike some “celebrity” musicians – Martin actually tunes his own banjos! The nice thing about the combo pack is that, after hearing the comic introductions and stage talk, you probably don’t want to hear them again too often. But, with the CD you get the best of music performed on Martin’s album “The Crow”, the Steeps own CD and, of course, songs from the Steve and Edie album – this time with more instrumental backing.

If you don’t own the Steve and Edie CD, you will definitely want this set. If you have that already, then you’ll want this one too for the visuals as well as the comedy. And you should also check out the Steeps own CDs. They are great.

Highly recommended.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare treat March 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the video (shared it with the whole family). The music is breathtaking. It is nice to hear a group of people who can actually sing and don't require 'tuning' to get the pitch right. Would truly love to see them in person, which is not something I typically say about musical groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars A five-star two-fer May 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The new Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers (with Edie Brickell) Live is a wonderful two-for-one gift -- with the CD of the concert, you also get a DVD showing it as filmed. The DVD version includes all of the introductions, jokes, some comic routines (not all of which work) and a real feel for what it was like to be at the show. There are a few new songs that have not appeared on any of Steve's bluegrass CDs to date, the best of which is called "Pretty Little One." In that "story song" Steve plays the bad guy and Edie his victim. The song's finale will give you a bit of a chill, and a laugh, and (perhaps) give you an additional perspective about Edie's recent run-in with the law over an argument she had with her husband Paul Simon.
