The Gin Blossoms are back with their first official live CD!
While the "Just South of Nowhere" DVD showcases the Blossoms visually from 1993 (and pre-"Congratulations I'm Sorry"), this release shows what they sound like today. It was recorded on July 18, 2008 in North Lawrence, Ohio and has older hits along with material from their reunion CD, "Major Lodge Victory."
The audio to the band is considerably higher than the audience, making the band sound clearer. I'm not sure if this is an edited concert, as their live show is considerably longer with more songs. A few of the audience cheers between songs have fades, indicating that either the order of songs was rearranged or there are in fact edited songs from the live set.
The hardest issue of coming up with a live set with a band like the Gin Blossoms is that you have to balance the older hits (and there are many) with the newer releases. Sometimes some songs just have to be omitted to make...
This, though the GB's first "official" live album, was rather unceremoniously released (I consider myself a pretty big Gin Blossoms follower, and this was out for several months before I even caught wind of it). The whole thing comes across as very "basic" and even sort of bootleg-ish - it's a recording of one show, warts 'n all, with no liner notes aside from the date and location of the show, and that it was mixed by guitarist Jesse Valenzuela (was it even mastered?). The cover itself is just a photo of the band that had been around for a while with "Live in Concert" slapped on it, and there are no additional photos to be found. The show itself is decent, and there's a nice mix of tunes from each of the band's three albums (at the time). Still, you can't help but wonder why more effort wasn't put into this - perhaps recording several shows and cherry-picking the best performances. As for the sound itself, it kind of sounds like a top-quality bootleg - the mix is relatively clear,...
Love the Gin Blossoms! This is a fabulous album!
