We gave it a B
This 26-song set from an ’07 gig not only captures why fans adore their personable, chatty Dave Matthews, but it’s also an excuse to geek out to Tim Reynolds’ fretwork, which is reminiscent of guitar virtuoso Leo Kottke’s style. With his help, DMB faves like ”Crash Into Me” shine with a streamlined treatment. Yes, Dave’s strained homage to Neil Young’s ”Down by the River” is almost comically overwrought — but that’s a small quibble. Live at Radio City makes you wish you were there, and is a healthy way to bide time until the next DMB release.
