This great live EP starts off with a drum roll. Then, with the crack of a snare drum, Grant Lee Buffalo rolls into a superb live version of one of the band's best songs, "The Shining Hour." This live EP was used as a promotional tool to support their European tour in 1993. From the acoustic roots rock of "The Shining Hour" to the slow, building acoustic rock of "Grace," Grant Lee Buffalo fires on all cylinders. They also include a great live version of one of their favorites, the Neil Young song "For the Turnstiles." The four live tracks here all show why Michael Stipe once declared Grant Lee Buffalo the best band in the Northern Hemisphere.
