Old Crow Medicine Show: Live at the Orange Peel and Tennessee Theatre (Shock DVD)

The rocked-up country-cum-bluegrass outfit haven't ever fully convinced on CD, although the best of their previous outing Tennessee Pusher certainly explained why they are such a potent live act.

This DVD of shows filmed in Asheville, North Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee capture them touring that album but generously throwing in some real oldies (a country cover of Down Home Girl which the Stones did way back, CC Rider and other traditional songs as well as Wagon Wheel co-written with Dylan).

As with most filmed concerts, especially those in tight venues, you get the feeling you had to be there and although they get the crowd baying in delight there isn't a lot to look at on stage.

These guys pour their all into it, but from the spectator point of view on DVD -- and the camera positions don't offer too much visual diversity -- it's a rather staid affair.

As with that album though, it does give you the sense that this will always be a band you need to be in the same room with to fully appreciate.
