Live is the first collection of live recordings ever released from Alison Krauss + Union Station. Recorded on their spring 2002 tour, this three-LP set includes versions of classic AKUS songs such as "When You Say Nothing At All" and "Baby Now That I've Found You" from their double-platinum Now That I've Found You; "The Lucky One" and "Let Me Touch You For Awhile" from the gold-selling New Favorite; and "I'm A Man of Constant Sorrow" and "Down to the River and Pray" from the O'Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack. In all, there are 25 career-spanning tracks. From their traditional bluegrass roots to their more recent pop-oriented tunes, the recording, the playing and the voices are all impeccable.

Great music

I have this set, and the SACD. I find the packaging of the MFSL to be impeccable. Really nice work. The records sound great. Very quiet, with good soundstaging and dynamics. With that said, I do not find the sound to be any better than my SACD. It is better than the CD layer of the SACD.

If you can tell the difference between a lively, emotionally connective recording and a sterile collection of very mediocre audiophile sound effects, pass on this one. It might serve as an over-hyped digital demo LP if you enjoy listening to your system through the music, but involving it is not.

This bloodless recording reduces a routine, going-through- the-motions live performance to a flat, lifeless ordeal. I've tried to get through it several times, but I never manage get past a single side, and I love Alison Krauss and Union Station!

Faux-Mo-Fi blows it again.


Upwards to infinity with no ceiling in sight.

What an incredibly clean and extended DSD recording. High rez digital converted to analog and pressed into some extremely quiet vinyl. What more could anyone ask for, music lover or just a plain ole' audiophile listening for the absolute sound. Air galore with a great sense of the theatre that the band is playing in. Quiet vinyl too which counts very much to my sensitive ears that cringe at excessive cracks and pops. I give it an A.


Very good recording

I have the DVD, the CD and the LP of this album. The pressing on the LP is very good, not as detailed as I like it to be but very musical nevertheless.

Applause... Mofi has done it again! Typically I don't care for live recordings, for the ones I have heard do not have any real depth or presence and the audience background noise is usually distracting to me, compared to studio recordings that is, but not with this one. This gem of a pressing is remarkable sounding. Front row seating in your living room where the vocals and instruments just float in the air. Excellent separation, just amazing.


A must have.

This is a digital source recording and sounds more dead than alive. Save your money.


Amazing!

Without a doubt one of the finest recordings and performances Ive ever heard. The vinyl is dead silent and the sound is unbelievable. This is one of the tightest bands on the planet
