Great Album!

nicandry

You will not be diappointed with this one. HBR are fun and energetic. I wasn't too familiar with them, but downloaded this album anyway. I am glad I did. If you like bluegrass and jambands this is the one for you-great 'jamgrass' music!

Must Have Download

If you like Yonder Mountain String Band, bluegrass, newgrass or jambands and haven't heard Hot Buttered Rum, you're missing out big-time. These guys are very talented players and song-writers. As Emusic's review says, this is definately the best representation of HBR on disc. I have their studio releases as well as a number of live soundboard downloads and this tops them all. Great songs, great playing, great sound quality,a must have download.

HBR's own pick of their best

Hot Buttered Rum are renowned for their improvisation in live performances. This recording is from their Fall tour of 2006. It could be said to combine the advantages of both live performance and studio production, since the songs were professionally multi-tracked in the field, and then mixed in the studio. The band picked these tracks, and they say this is the best representation of their work on disc.

They Say All Music Guide

There is more to a good jam band than jamming. The most noteworthy jam bands also pay a lot of attention to the art of songcraft; they realize that jamming isn’t going to mean as much if they don’t have worthwhile songs to use as the basis for their jamming. And Hot Buttered Rum’s Live in the Northeast is a pleasing demonstration of how much one can benefit the other. There is plenty of inspired jamming on this 70-minute CD, which was recorded live in October 2006 at various venues in New England and Upstate New York. But the thing that makes the jamming and improvising work as well as it does is the fact Hot Buttered Rum hit the stage with a repertoire of well-crafted songs; even if a listener isn’t a huge fan of improvisation and doesn’t listen to jam bands extensively, he/she can still appreciate the craftsmanship that went into “California Snow and Rain,” “Busted in Utah,” and other material that the San Francisco Bay Area-based progressive bluegrass/country-rock outfit performs on Live in the Northeast. Of course, people who are heavily into jam bands tend to have a strong appreciation of improvisation — and from a jamming/improvising standpoint, there is a lot to appreciate about Hot Buttered Rum’s live performances. But the thing is that it is easier to deliver an inspired improvisation when you have a lot of memorable songs to inspire you. Live in the Northeast is an enjoyable document of Hot Buttered Rum on-stage in 2006. – Alex Henderson
