Marshall Crenshaw's earlier live album, MY TRUCK IS MY HOME, was culled from assorted clubs and concert halls, mostly with a band in tow. This release was recorded live at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey on a single night in February 2001. It's primarily a solo acoustic show, but he's joined on a few numbers by Greg Cohen on bass and Charlie Giordano on accordion.
The 14 songs offer both a tour from his rich songbook and a couple glimpses into some of his musical influences and forebears--one from the 1950s (Jody Reynolds's "Endless Sleep") and one from the '60s (the Left Banke's "Walk Away Renee"). Though he had few actual chart hits, almost all of Crenshaw's songs sound like they could have been smashes. He mixes the familiar ("Cynical Girl," "Someday, Someway") with some tunes of more recent vintage, including several from his wonderful #447 album of two years previous. I'VE SUFFERED is a fine overview of a continuously productive, high-caliber songwriter and performer.
