Los Lonely BoysKeep on Giving: Acoustic Live! (Playing in Traffic)
To keep pace with three studio discs beginning with LLB's self-titled 2003 smash, this third live offering strains the San Angelo familial trio's credibility from its opening "¿Que pasa, Colorado Springs?" Despite exquisite acoustic work from Henry Garza ("Oye Mamacita") and his call-and-response with bassist JoJo on nine-minute instro-jam "Man To Beat," the material's rote from overperformance ("Hollywood") and unimaginative covers ("Evil Ways"). Alejandro Escovedo and Carrie Rodriguez give their all on the Stones' "Beast of Burden."
