Review: Brandi Carlile – Live From Boston (aka iTunes EP – Boston)


Label: Columbia

Released: 9/16/2008

A cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” is on Live From Boston, so I figured I’d skip right to that track and see whether Carlile and her band managed to do right by Johnny’s spirit.

They did.

What more do you want me to write? If that doesn’t make you go listen, nothing will.
