sheryl crow at the royal albert hall. being such a fan of sheryl it was enough just to be at the gig. i'm pretty good at griping tho so gotta say firstly, and this wasnt just a problem for sheryl crow but the support band too, the sound guy sholda stuck some compression on the vocals. the lows were all but inaudible and the loud bits almost painful. its a basic thing and i cant believe it was so apparent. bad marks for the sound guy. as for sheryl, well, i guess she's between a rock and a hard place when it comes to material from 100 miles from mephis, its doubtful pete stroud is gonna wanna play anything from that album which is a shame cos that album has some choice songs that work well live. in fact pete stroud almost looked bored onstage, he underplayed altho to be fair the prescence of a lap steel guitarist onstage most probably dictated he leave some room in his playing. i couldnt decide wehter this was a band who were tired after playing their 5th gig in a row or a band fairly new at playiing with each other and finding their feet! however, its easy to pick fault with other peoples work so rather than nit pick any further i will say it was wonderful to see a real band onstage, warts and all! really glad i saw sheryl crow live, one of the worlds finest songwriters and performers. albert hall, sort yer sound out.
