Better live than recorded
There are some artists whose CDs I don't connect with but who blow me away in concert. I've never really enjoyed M. Ward's CDs, but I saw him on Austin City Limits last night and thought he was awesome. As I write this, I'm listening to his last CD, Hold Time, and, while I have a somewhat heightened appreciation for it, I still don't think it's nearly as strong as his live performance. I've long had the same response to Wilco -- their CDs have never done anything for me, but in concert they are awesome. So … are there any performers you feel the same way about -- great in concert but less-than-great on CD? Or vice-versa -- great on CD but not so great in concert?
