Todd Snider is one of those artists that is better live than in the studio. In the studio, producers and label executives can dub, edit, and over produce, but live you get Todd at his best. Not that the studio albums are bad, just that live, you hear his love for what he does. Spend a buck and grab "45 Miles" and "The Devil You Know" and if you like them, you'll love this album and start searching for where he performs closest to you. I know I do.
