Album Review

Like any jam-oriented band, Blues Traveler has a reputation for being better in concert than they are in the studio. Therefore, it would make sense that the double-disc Live from the Fall would be the ideal Blues Traveler album, since it allows the band to stretch out and demonstrate its true talents. In a sense, that is true. The two discs — which were recorded in the fall of 1995, as the band was supporting the surprise success of Four — do give the band room to improvise, and they exploit the extra space for all of its worth. Initially, Blues Traveler wanted to release without track indexes, so the listener could hear how each song flowed into the next. And the album does sound like that — like a never-ending medley, where melodic themes pop in and out of the long solos. Occasionally, they detour into covers (War's "Low Rider," John Lennon's "Imagine"), but they mainly weave a tapestry of their own material, including rarities like the B-side "Regarding Steven" and the unreleased "Closing Down the Park." For fans of pop hits like "Run-Around" and "Hook," this can be a little irritating, but for those who have been with the band since the beginning, Live from the Fall is a priceless document — more than any other album, this showcases what Blues Traveler is about.

Customer Reviews

This is just a sampling of a great 2 CD set.

This is a great live compilation album. Both CD's are packed with great live cuts. The feeling on "I'm alone" and the pure jam of "Mulling it Over" or "Crash Burn" are enough for me to give this album my respect.

Live From The Fall

This is a great album, could you please put this entire album up for purchase. Thank you "Hopes can always go up but tears will only go down"

Will be remembered in more than 100 years.

Live from the Fall truely shows the talent of this band. The greatest song being 100 Years and its reality meaning that you can look at from both sides. But you will remember Blues Traveler without a doubt in 100 years.
