Could it happen?

Could a live album make my favorite’s list by year’s end?

Well, I just pre-ordered the latest Live from Nowhere offering (#4 to be exact) from Cincinnati band, Over the Rhine.  It’s a double-disc recording of most of the Dec 2008 Taft Reunion concert with founding guitarist Ric Hordinski and founding drummer Brian Kelley joining the still-in-the-band wife-and-husband team of Karin  Bergquist (vocals / guitar / etc) and Linford Detweiler (keyboards / bass / etc).  Ric left in 1996/97 (I don’t know when exactly as he was gone before I got into them and their Wiki page is weak*), and Brian left at the end of 1998 (IIRC).  I saw OTR with Brian, but never with Ric (though I’ve seen Ric plenty of times with his band Monk & solo).

*– Hey, Bruce, if you read this, the OTR Wiki could use a Bruce’ing up... especially on the early era.

With the new release (expected out in August), you get an immediate download.  I’m on track 6 of disc 1 now, and I love it.  It makes me wish I could have afforded to go to the actual show back in December.

Anyway, here’s the artwork & tracklist (95 minutes total):
