Phoenix’s contribution to the iTunes Live from SoHo series features brisk, energetic runs through six songs from the band’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, including “1901” and “Lisztomania.” More of a treat for fans than Live! Thirty Days Ago, this admittedly briefer set boasts crisp sound, and Thomas Mars' vocals are up front without getting in the way of his bandmates. These performances are straightforward, with little deviation from the album versions, but the buzzing energy packs quite a punch.
