My Wife’s Home Town documents the October 14th show in Charlotte, North Carolina on a professionally manufactured CDR. Like all CDRs, the labels are affixed to the disc and they use cheap looking paper inserts for the artwork.
The performance is very good, but there are no rarities and no surprises. Highway use a LOUD, distorted, booming recording that is really tough to get through. This release is recommended only to those who were there that night and who MUST have a recording. Otherwise, there are many other, and much better, recordings out there.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
