Live in Europe is more of Leo Kotke doing what he does best -- exemplary folk guitar. Listeners will be drawn to Kotke for his instrumental virtuosity, as on "The Train and the Gate," "Pen Country Joy: Theme and Adhesions," and others. His voice is more modest, yet pleasant, as evidenced on tracks like "Tell Mary." Also includes the wry audience favorite "Pamela Brown." ("Wonder where I'd be today if she had loved me too/probably be drivin' kids to school.") Fans who enjoy Kotke's earlier albums, like Ice Water and Chewing Pine, will also appreciate this follow-up.
