Recorded live in Austin, Texas, this is an energetic document of Dave Alvin with his four-piece band, The Guilty Men. Alvin had been working with Men variously for some time and their command of the material is thorough and empathetic. Greg Leisz's lap steel and mandolin and drummer Bobby Lloyd Hick's harmony vocals add breadth and color to Alvin's weary near-baritone. Bass player Gregory Boaz and pianist Rick Solem provide the anchor.
The set rocks, swings and drops to its knees and wails when it needs to. An all-encompassing sense of musical history imbues the playing (a fine nod to "Train Kept A-Rollin'" in "Jubilee Train"), but never reduces it to museum reverence--this music is alive, breathing and looking towards the future. The songs are populated with dust bowl characters and dreamers wanting a better life. While the set was recorded before an appreciative audience, it in no way is merely a souvenir of a tour. This is a strong and compelling work in its own right--a rarity in the genre of live albums.
