Landreth is also a solid songwriter, a roots scholar of sorts, and an excellent, under appreciated vocalist; just listen to the spooky way he doubles his guitar gymnastics on "Broken Hearted Road," for example. These 11 tracks, however (eight fan favorites and three new cuts, recorded at the Grant Street Dance Hall last year) are a guitar geek's delight-lyrical when they jam and ferocious even in the midst of deep meditation. It'd be hard to say exactly what musical boundaries are being crossed during, say, "Port Of Calling," so adept is Sonny at darting between his influences and coming up with his own unique thang. He does call out a few points of interest with titles like "Blues Attack" and "U.S.S. Zydecoldsmobile," but where he goes once he gets traveling is anyone's guess-rock? jazz? classical? Your best bet, especially this time out, is just to hang on and enjoy it. The audience certainly sounds like they did.
