There's no place like home...There's no place like home.
Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore. At least I’m pretty sure that I’m not. The Yards, however, are. That is precisely the problem that this live recording, released in 2002, is trying to address.
Joining Bradford Hoopes (organ) in this incarnation of the Yards is Brian Mitchell (guitar), Brad Maestas (bass), newcomer Danny Rojas (drums), and guest percussionist Samson (on loan from Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe – who the Yards were opening the show for). The set list includes 4 tracks from the Yards debut studio album and 4 previously unrecorded tracks. The performance is top-notch throughout, with the tracks “Bridges”, “La Pelota”, “Scarlet Wonders”, and “Dissentrance” being the high points. The latter 2 tracks, being two of the previously unrecorded tracks, beg for studio versions on a future Yards record.
The quality of the recording on this record is superb. The sound is crisp, clear, and not muddied by the incessant crowd noise that so frequently detracts from a live album. The only minor downer is that the first track “Sweet Potato Soup” sounds like it was faded in. As this is the first track on the record, however, this problem is easily overlooked and doesn't distract from the overall experience...
Just click the heels of your ruby red slippers and repeat after me… “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home” (with a Yards CD providing the soundtrack, that is).

I like it a lot!
Thanks for sending me this CD quickly and without problems to Germany. I love the recording, the "Dissentrance" song is real funky and the live mood of the concert comes across real well.
