Comments: If you are a fan of Steve Earle's music, you will love this, if not, this makes a pretty good starting point.
This concert took place around a year after Steve had been released form jail (for fire arms and drug offences). He kicked his long standing drug habit in prison, and when released set about recording and touring.
His music diversified and the live performances improved substantially.
Steve continues to be a very active, this concert is just a point in time, and as previously mentioned a good point to discover the man.
