When I first saw this performance when it first aired on Austin City Limits, I was blown away by the authenticity of it. The music itself, the approach by the musicians and the unique songwriter and performer that is Dwight Yoakam all combine for an exercise in honesty when it comes to a LIVE performance. God bless the recording engineers for Austin City Limits on this night because they nailed it. The phrase 'lightning in a bottle' comes to mind.
If you like Mr. Yoakam at all you'll recognize every song played here. However you might not be familiar with just how good Dwight is on guitar. He flat picks it out on several of the tunes and that way, Pete Anderson doesn't have to do all the work.
For my money, Pete Anderson is the guts of the signature unique Dwight Yoakam Sound. He knows just how many notes to throw in - or leave out - when he takes a lead break in a song. His string bending and attack add that just right amount of Blues influence to the overall sound and what you're left with is Country music magic. The guy is just a monster player in the strongest sense of that word. His instrument and his approach to it drive the band to some very interesting places as he powers his way through song after song. It's damn near impossible to sit still when you watch this disc because of the licks and little hooks he throws in behind Dwight's work on the acoustic. The pairing of these two individuals is a perfect match for us listeners, that's for sure.Read more ›
