There are few bands that can reproduce studio quality when performing live, but with vocals as impressive as Bear Rinehart's and some virtuoso musicianship, this is what Needtobreathe have done on this recording, adding a little extra along the way. Rather than a flat performance of hits, this recording, when turned up loud, has an authentic feel that transports the listener to The Woods Amphitheatre. Opening with the foot-stomping "State I'm In", the Southern rockers start as they mean to go on and draw the crowd in immediately, building with a string of tracks from not only their latest album, 'Rivers In The Wasteland', but also a raft of others. The space age keyboard intro to "Wanted Man" adds a more upbeat feel to the track and "Difference Maker" is powerful in its stripped back setting with Bear's raw vocals straining on the edge of breaking. New material sits comfortably alongside much loved classics such as "The Outsiders" and "Girl Named Tennessee". These appearances allow the whole band to display some fine rock pedigree. Full of emotional highs this live recording has the ability to move the listener and there is no moment where this is more evident than in Bear's description of the difficulties that the band have experienced in recent times. The outcome he describes has made them much stronger and resulted in the writing of the excellent "Brother". The band members seem to have found a place where they are comfortable to play with freedom and energy. This is one of the best live recordings from a Christian band that I have heard, with its ability to move and transport the listener. Thoroughly recommended.
