That’s how I’d describe Eddi Reader’s ‘Live In Japan’ album.
Recorded at Billboard Live shows, Japan in September of 2009, this CD covers a wide selection of her career highs, from Fairground Attraction’s, ‘Perfect’, all the way to the recent Love is the Way. It’s a great album with stunning and haunting vocals and the crowd participation is worth the purchase fee alone. In fact, the album closes with a Japanese children’s song, Usagi, sung a cappella with the audience.
Eddi is joined by regular band members Roy Dodds, Boo Hewerdine, Alan Kelly, Kevin McGuire and I have it on good authority that the Trashcans John Douglas is ‘all over it’.
