The singer/songwriter's show from a July 8, 2000, performance at the famed New York showcase club. Fronting his four-piece band, the Rough Squirrels, Forbert draws from then-recent studio records Evergreen Boy and Mission of the Crossroad Palms, and naturally, selected favorites from his first two albums, among them "Goin' Down to Laurel" and the hit "Romeo's Tune," are also included. Forbert's earnest, wry lyrics, which he sings in a rusty, expressive tenor, shine throughout.
