WXRT's Live from the Archives releases always reflect the veteran Chicago radio station's play list. Volume six is no different, with highlight performances from Train, John Mayer, David Gray, Lucinda Williams, and Lyle Lovett. It's nice to hear the studio versions of these songs stripped and reworked for acoustic instruments, from Williams' sly "Can't Let Go" to the tasteful piano tinges in Gray's "Babylon." Lovett might win with "Good Intentions," since it sounds like he's singing it just for you, perched with his guitar on a rickety kitchen chair.
