Recorded for PBS' Austin City Limits program in November 1985, Evening in Austin includes the entire concert (only 25 minutes were broadcast on television). Kate Wolf presents good interpretations of 14 songs spanning her career, sticking mostly to original material, although four covers are also present, including a Robin Williamson tune and the '60s folk-rock warhorse "Let's Get Together." It has a couple of songs that weren't released on any of her records, but it's mostly for serious fans, as is the accompanying video of the event (which is available separately).
