I might be a couple days late but I still want to wish everyone out there a very happy New Year! I also want to thank you for listening in 2007 and let you know that I look forward to another year of great live music. I'm not planning on making any major changes in 2008 just yet, but that should be good news if you have enjoyed the show thus far.
I'm kicking off the new year with one of my all time favorite bands to watch live. The first time I saw Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals was in the summer of 2003 and ever since I have tried my best not to miss a show. I'm actually kind of surprised that I waited this long to feature one of their concerts, but sadly their live recordings are a somewhat rare occurrence.
This band is easily one of the most powerful live acts around and on top of that they have produced some wonderful CDs with a lot of commercial success as well. Having said that, if you have heard songs off their CDs but not performed live I really believe this band take on a completely new form when they get on stage. Hopefully this podcast will give you a glimpse at what they do live, but it really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Please enjoy a sampling from their March 01, 2001 performance recorded in Athens, GA.
