The songs that are played on both nights are Gimme Something Good, Oh My Sweet Carolina, My Winding Wheel, Off Broadway, New York, New York and Come Pick Me Up. That’s remarkably few and is a great reason for seeing Adams on several nights when he plays near you.
There is also plenty of charming banter between the songs that helps to round out the live concert feeling.
Before listening to this album a few times, I knew little about Ryan Adams except that he is a critics favourite and has been grouped in the alternative country category which I’ve never understood. If it doesn’t sound like country music, it’s not.
I know I have a weakness for good singer songwriter albums and this is another top add to the list.
