"...From the sirens – Patty Griffin's plaintive "Go Wherever," Suzanna Choffel's stilling "Golden Fires," Shawn Colvin's distressed "Change Is on the Way" – to the guardians – Bob Schneider's raw "Unpromised Land," Gary Clark Jr.'s jittery "Ain't Messin' 'Round," Nakia's NOLA-like jazz funeral, "Make Up With a Gun" – these are the best years of our lives. The second disc of this 36-song live set stumbles with our times' fragmented playlist (Snow Patrol, Civil Twilight, Churchill, Saints of Valory), but Michael Kiwanuka reincarnated as Richie Havens ("Tell Me a Tale") and Delta Rae's soul cry ("If I Loved You") make good, while Iron & Wine's gently wrenching "Winter Prayers" and Steve Earle ("Invisible") forgive all..."

Jake Bugg loosens "Lightning Bolt" and Frank Turner's gritty "Recovery" bristles following the emotional pull of Noah Gundersen and Robert Ellis, but Elle King trumps on a stripped-down and breathy "Ex's and Oh's." Back-end tracks lag until Lissie unloads a Stevie Nicks growl on "Further Away (Romance Police)" and Aaron Behrens howls to a close with "Keep On Rising." Shakey Graves carries the local flag in commencing disc two with a raw "Dearly Departed." Tori Amos' stunning "Oysters" slides awkwardly into G. Love's "Nothing Quite Like Home" and Bob Schneider's acoustic "Dirty Feeling." The center mellows behind Jeremy Messersmith, Birds of Tokyo, Jamestown Revival, and the Mowgli's, but ZZ Ward kicks funk into the closing run of Spanish Gold's "Out on the Street," locals Saints of Valory on "Long Time Coming," and St..."
