A really good show, very well-balanced; loud songs are fresh and
energetic, quiet numbers done with a light touch. Good sound, a solid
A. Show opens with a little a-cappella "It's Halloween!" song, really
corny and funny; they sound just like little kids getting ready to go
trick-or-treating. James sings "Let's Compromise" (loud version).
Unusual version of "From a Motel 6" with different guitar effects and
slightly rollicking feel. "Autumn Sweater" is the "OK girl now let's
see what you can do" version. "Big Day Coming" is the slow version,
lovely. "Love Power" is hilarious as always.
