Pleasantly rambunctious, but always controlled, packed with roiling climaxes as well as containing moments of hushed delicacy, this live album captures four masters of their craft veering between rousing freeish material (mostly contributed by Fonda) and more structured music (written by Stevens). An eloquent, big-hearted, exhilarating album. CP
