Guitarist and singer-songwriter Nils Lofgren in 1997 released a small treasure for longtime fans. Acoustic Live captures Lofgren alone in front of an appreciative audience, knocking out such favorites as "You," "No Mercy" and "Keith Don't Go," plus six new songs. Even with the new songs, there are no real revelations, only a selection of little gems that will put a smile on your face as you listen.

Yes, this is a digital recording. True to our company principles, Analogue Productions in almost all cases reissues recordings only where the analog master tape is available. However, there are rare exceptions that whether digitally recorded or otherwise, a recording is so outstanding it's worthy of the highest quality vinyl reissue.

Now with Analogue Production's 45 RPM release, the best-sounding version of this classic double album gives listeners an even richer sonic experience. The dead-quiet 4LP set, with the music spread over four sides of vinyl at RTI, reduces distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo cartridge track more accurately.

Along with his work as a solo artist, Lofgren has marked more than 25 years as a member of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band as well as a former member of Crazy Horse and Grin. Lofgren joined Neil Young's band in 1968 at age 17, playing piano on the album After the Gold Rush. Lofgren would maintain a close musical relationship with Young, appearing on his Tonight's the Night album and tour among others. He was also briefly a member of Crazy Horse, appearing on their 1971 LP and contributing songs to their catalogue. From '71 to '74 Lofgren was active in Grin, the band he founded in '69. Solo albums and tours followed every year through the 1970s as Lofgren established himself as a top guitarist and live performer earning the respect and acclaim of his peers. Bruce Springsteen made the call in 1984 and Lofgren joined the E-Street Band for the Born in the USA tour. Lofgren was an instant hit with Springsteen's fans through his playing and vibrant on stage persona. Lofgren remains a stalwart of the E-Street Band to the present day.

"Acoustic Live is an interesting and charming album from Nils Lofgren in 1997 as he follow on in the Unplugged tradition that became popular in the 1990s. It was actually recorded at The Barns Of Wolftrap, Vienna in Virginia on January 18th, 1997." —

Reviewer: Ken
I bought the 33 rpm version and love the sound and the music. Bought the 45 rpm version to make sure I don't regret later when it becomes out of print. Wow. Better body and more open sounding. Also more dynamic. No regret buying this one. Highly recommended.

Best version

Wow, I have seen Nils solo, with Grin, with his other bands, with Bruce and more, over 20 times. This is as good as it gets. The sound is amazing. This is wonderful. Thank you for this amazing pressing of a great live Nils Lofgren acoustic Show. You will not be disappointed.

For every music lover - not just fans of acoustic guitar - this is an absolute must have. I owned the 33 rpm version before which was exceptional already, but this version is the top of top and you will enjoy every note when playing it. The club atmosphere comes over so intense and intimate, the strings and vocal are so precise and natural which I never have experienced before on any other recordings (and I have quite a huge collection at home). This also is a perfect benchmark for any pickup, tonearm and phono stage tests. Well done Analogue Productions

9.5 out of 10!

Probably the best sounding digitally sourced acoustic music I own. A must have for acoustical guitars lovers. It also helps that Nils was top tier guitarist.
