Acoustic Live album from E Street Band member Nils Lofgren!
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Nils Lofgren in 1997 released a small treasure
for longtime fans. Acoustic Live captures Lofgren alone in front of an
appreciative audience, knocking out such favorites as "You," "No Mercy" and
"Keith Don't Go," plus six new songs. Even with the new songs, there are no real
revelations, only a selection of little gems that will put a smile on your face
as you listen.
Yes, this is a digital recording. True to the company's principles, Analogue
Productions in almost all cases reissues recordings only where the analog master
tape is available. However, there are rare exceptions that whether digitally
recorded or otherwise, a recording is so outstanding it's worthy of the highest
quality vinyl reissue.
Now with Analogue Production's 45 RPM release, the best-sounding version of this
classic double album gives listeners an even richer sonic experience. The
dead-quiet 4LP set, with the music spread over four sides of vinyl, reduces
distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo
cartridge track more accurately.
Along with his work as a solo artist, Lofgren has marked more than 25 years as a
member of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band as well as a former member of
Crazy Horse and Grin. Lofgren joined Neil Young's band in 1968 at age 17,
playing piano on the album After the Gold Rush. Lofgren would maintain a close
musical relationship with Young, appearing on his Tonight's the Night album and
tour among others. He was also briefly a member of Crazy Horse, appearing on
their 1971 LP and contributing songs to their catalogue. From '71 to '74 Lofgren
was active in Grin, the band he founded in '69. Solo albums and tours followed
every year through the 1970s as Lofgren established himself as a top guitarist
and live performer earning the respect and acclaim of his peers. Bruce
Springsteen made the call in 1984 and Lofgren joined the E-Street Band for the
Born in the USA tour. Lofgren was an instant hit with Springsteens fans through
his playing and vibrant on stage persona. Lofgren remains a stalwart of the
E-Street Band to the present day.
"Acoustic Live is an interesting and charming album from Nils Lofgren in 1997
as he follow on in the Unplugged tradition that became popular in the 1990s. It
was actually recorded at The Barns Of Wolftrap, Vienna in Virginia on January
18th, 1997." — bestlivealbums.com
