1200 Curfews Import, Live
While many of these live tracks were culled from the Swamp Ophelia tour, the entire collection on this two-disc set covers a lot of territory in the Indigo Girls oeuvre. From the charming "Back Together Again" (recorded in Amy's basement in 1982) to the reverent cover of Joni Mitchell 's "River" (recorded live in Atlanta), these songs capture the energy and spirit of one of the most successful folk-rock duos in the history of contemporary music. Live renditions of favorites like "Closer to Fine," "Power of Two," "Strange Fire," "Land of Canaan," and "Galileo" bristle with passion, and the mandolin, cello, and percussion parts sparkle in concert. While they're right on with their rave-up of Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up in Blue," the one misstep is the lackluster performance on the 10-minute "Down by the River" by Neil Young. --Lorry Fleming
Amy and Emily sing their way across their tour. Culled from their best performances!
