Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

The Wood Brothers

Live Volume One

2012-09-23

One sign of a great concert or a great disc is when it leaves you begging for more. On this short but great disc that mixes elements of folk, rock, jazz and definitely blues brothers Chris and Oliver Wood do exactly that. This CD takes three tracks from both of the Wood brothers studio discs and adds a great cover of the Mississippi John Hurt track Pay Day. The seven tracks on this Disc were recorded at five separate venues and in my opinion hearing them live breathes an added dimension and depth into the already excellent studio versions of these tracks. In addition to the several musical genres listed above, Chris and Oliver bring touches of gospel with "Made it Up The Mountain and "stumbled In" a track about stumbling into heaven. The CD ends with an Oliver Wood penned track "Luckiest Man" that certainly can lift any spirit. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
