Guitar Town is a Grammy nominated album full of songs that paint a rich portrait of everyday good ol' boys trying to get through life, make the best of whatever hand life has dealt them, act out a little bit, and from time to time have some fun along the way. Steve Earle is a great songwriter and it shows, every song on this album is a gem.
The bonus concert disc is, in my opinion, just okay. Steve and his band The Dukes are playing before an enthusiatic audience. They throw out a few songs from the follow-up album to Guitar Town. Sounds like it was a fun time but it doesn't make for great listening. Steve's voice gets pretty raspy at times and the live versions don't always live up to the studio ones. I like it, don't love it.
The original Guitar Town is well worth a listen, I highly recommend it, but unless you're a major Steve Earle fan or a collector you probably won't be all that impressed with the concert disc. It's good, not great. I'm happy I got it but I would be just as happy with a copy of the original without the bonus disc.
Bottom line: If you're a big Steve Earle fan this is a must have. For the casual fan you'd do just as well getting a copy of the original and saving a little cash.
