DISPATCH: ZIMBABWE - Live at Madison Square Garden
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Dispatch (VDI)/Universal Records
This document of the first independent band to sell out the Madison Square Garden doesn't take too long to warm up; by the time "Here We Go" shuffles into its double-time gate, it's accompanied by the roar of the 20,000-capacity crowd. It's a little loose (forgivable for a band who had reformed for the occasion of a three-night stand of benefits for Zimbabwean poverty), but the fan favorites -- "Flying Horses," "The General" and "Elias" -- have 20,000 voices singing along, which gives the double LP the feel of a exultant sing-along around the world's largest campfire.
