This show is a real standout. Perhaps the very best of 1996. "Soul" is an appropriate description of the mood of this disc. The performances are exceptional, with surprising arrangements and beautiful vocals. So much more soulful than any other performance from '96 (or any other year for that matter). It's difficult to pick highlights from this set, since every song is a highlight.  The recording is warm, and yet clear and defined. It all adds up to an astounding CD. The packaging is non-descript. Nothing to get excited about, but not terrible either (despite some incorrect titles and spelling on the rear).  The original issue discs are almost completely white with a small logo and title shining through from the disc aluminum.
