Chris Hillman is a fine member of a band, but as a solo artist I don't think he can carry a whole show. His voice isn't very strong, and the songs he performs here aren't, for the most part, what you would call classics.--FBB, Manassas and SH&F and only one Byrds song. His late 70s production is by and large rather ordinary to me, even on the MCH albums, where almost half the songs are his or sung by him. This concert features a competent band which switches from country rock to bluegrass without problems and provide some good harmony vocals as well. Both sets are professional and enjoyable, though not especially memorable. Hillman fans should like this, while others who remember his work with the Byrds and subsequent groups will find a lot to enjoy. Thanks to Dave and R--B for all these recent uploads.
