Muze PNote In the course of making eight studio albums, not only has Lyle Lovett amassed an impressive backlog of songs, but he's also developed a reputation as an extraordinary live performer thanks to a coterie of musicians known as His Large Band. For the 1995 Austin and San Antonio shows compiled on LIVE IN TEXAS, Lovett's band was 17 strong and featured five background vocalists along with a horn and string section.
Muze PNote The Texas singer-songwriter has always had a uniquely unclassifiable sound that flits between folk, country, blues and rock. Nowhere is this more evident than in a live setting where Lovett easily changes gears between the Texas swing of "That's Right (You're Not From Texas)" to the gospel-soaked fun of "Church." Throughout any stylistic shifts, Lovett's lyrics reflect a variety of off-beat characters ranging from the sardonic wit of a hen-pecked husband in "She's No Lady" to the lovelorn weirdo skulking around in the wonderfully brassy "Here I Am." As a singer, Lovett's dry delivery works well whether he's duetting with Ricki Lee Jones on the heartbreaking "North Dakota" or trading sassy ripostes with Francine Reed during "What Do You Do."

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (7/8-7/22/99, p.150)
- 3 stars (out of 5)
- "...a fine tour through Lovett's career....a rare combination of subtlety and sly fun..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/24/99-7/2/99, p.133)
- "Live in Texas rides an impressive range, from the sly Texas-swing swagger of "(That's Right)
You're Not From Texas" to the quietly wistful "Nobody Knows Me"....Live and large, indeed." - Rating: A-

Q (10/99, p.124)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...he links genres seamlessly - folk, country, rock, jazz - to ensure all human life there is. These well-shaped songs...refuse to fit into any predesignated catagory..."
