Chris Hillman doesn't usually inspire many comments in this blog, though I don't know why. Although he's not my favorite ex-Byrd, he has made some good music over the years. I own one cd of his--Like a Hurricane, and to me it's the best he's done, at least from what I've heard. This upload is a selection of live performances, and they certainly sound very professional. There's a mixture of country styles with some fine playing, adequate singing and good harmonies, plus many pleasant songs. I think you have to be an alt-country fan to fully appreciate this music--I'm not especially fond of country music myself, so the enjoyment pales after 21 songs. But it's interesting to me nonetheless, and I like this music better than his music in the 1970s (except for Manassas). And there's a certain stylistic continuity which eventually led to Like a Hurricane, which has more variety. I'm curious as to what other downloaders of this set of concerts think about this music and Chris Hillman in general.

Thanks for the download. I have a lot of these I taped on VHS when they were on TV; most of them from a show called "Nashville Now", hosted by Ralph Emery ( yes, THAT Ralph Emery ). He always was very gracious to the DRB.
To answer Steve's comments; I really liked the DRB in the beginning, the first couple lps were really good, and then they changed a bit, and were somewhat less interesting. If you don't like country, you probably won't be that interested, although the last couple DRB lps with the original band tended to be more rockier, and less country. Myself, I've always found Hillman's stuff interesting and high quality, be it country, bluegrass, or whatever. Not on the quality and interest level of Gene Clark,( or David Crosby, for that matter ), but at least he never turned into an oldies act like McGuinn did. Just my humble opinion.
