Recorded live in August of 2001 in Santa Barbara and in January of 2002 in Pasadena, Dave Alvin's album comes by its title honestly. As live albums tend to be, it's a curious mix of the familiar and the obscure; concerts always have to offer the hits and standbys, but they also offer the performers a chance to play old and unfamiliar songs that hold a personal significance. Thus, listeners get rawboned performances of the inevitable "Fourth of July" (an Alvin composition recorded more famously by X, of which he was a member for a while) and "American Music" (recorded more famously by the Blasters, the band with which he made his breakthrough albums in the 1980s), along with a lascivious old Bo Carter blues, the Bo Diddley classic "Who Do You Love" (here performed in a medley with another old Blasters tune, "Little Honey") and the hoariest of old blues-rock chestnuts, "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down." The album's finest moment is a stunningly beautiful rendition of Alvin's "Abilene," which is beautiful in large part because the other bandmembers pitch in on vocals -- Alvin is a fine guitarist and an even better songwriter, but he's no kind of singer. At the very end, there is a hidden track; an audience member calls for "Freebird" in an ironic tone of voice, and Alvin responds, "What, you think we can't play that?" With that, the band rips into "Freebird" with a (mercifully brief) vengeance. It's the perfect ending to a very impressive album.

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.
