Comment: this is not the first live recording and hopefully not the last one at 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia, USA by Camper Van Beethoven you could find out at Archive.org. It can be assumed it is one of the combo’s favourite places to disseminate their legacy. The legendary quartet is there to convey a frantic session of 19 pieces with a grand total time of 64 minutes drawing upon southern rock, Americana, ska, blues, bluegrass, psychedelia, and alternative country. All these stylistic elements are seamlessly intertwined with one another and at the same time one element is traded for another to be appeared as if an effect of hocus-pocus or a hidden sort of music of the Romani and Jewish people. David Lowery`s vocal appearance is simply mesmerizing and that could be said about Jonathan Segel`s virtuosity to straddle on a keyboard and violin almost simultaneously. Just shut up and let the music take over. This is a bewildering hour by seminal masters. Absolutely brilliant!
