Too often "Live" albums don't live up to expectations due to low sound quality, bad mixing and the lack of the vibes experienced when attending a live performance. However, "Reggae On The River Live" is an exception to the rule. This cd - the companion to the excellent "Reggae On The River" double DVD set which features the story of the event and live performances from many of the artists that performed at the 2003 event - has a crisp and clear sound and the tracks are expertly mixed together. Sometimes you even experience the vibe of the festival. This set provides the audio from most of the full-length performances from the dvd, so that you're also able to play it on your portable cd player when you're away from home.
