    Son Volt, Nov 1996 - Need there be more?

    If you even only like Son Volt, get this disc. Jay Farrar is astounding: he doesn't miss a note, slip a word, and a voice that is characteristically low, short, and reserved. Eric Haywood is flat haunting, in the 1996 North American world of steel pedal playing, he was second to none. But my favorite is the only live performance I have of "Left a Slide", perhaps the most underrated offering in the Son Volt catalog. This song is sad, and none of that is lost in this performance. Absolute essential for any Son Volt fan.
