Dave Alvin: Live In Long Beach 1997

Album Review

Americana legend is joined on stage by some heavy friends.

Both with roots-rockers The Blasters and as a solo artist, Dave Alvin has mined the rich seam of American music. Blues, rock, folk and country — it’s all grist for Alvin’s immeasurable talents, and albums like last year’s Big Bill Broonzy tribute Common Ground (recorded with brother Phil) show that the singer, songwriter and guitarist has one foot in the past and his eyes on the horizon.
