Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band and Elvis Costello and Eric Clapton

oberstWhen one goes from a band or group onto their own solo project, or side project, it seems it goes one of two ways. Over-hyped or under appreciated. Eric Clapton did just fine without the rest of Cream-well they all kinda did, but Art Garfunkel did not reach the same level of success as his partner Paul Simon did after they split. Saying that Elvis Costello would have not been Elvis Costello without the “Attractions” is like saying that Conor Oberst isn’t himself a star without the “Mystic Valley Band.” In Mr. Oberst’s new release Outer South, slated for May 5th, he proves that either way he still has some weird sorta familiarness to his sound that may just pan out or has it already?

When listening to “live” recordings one should, and most likely does, get transported to the time and place of the show. If it is a particulary great performence one can pickout  diffeneces between that one and similar performences; especially if you have a storyline to go along with it. That being said, we here at Impossible City we are featuring a show from 1972, before we were even founded, that is a true–and unheard of–classic. The rauchous Japanese crowd eats up the dark over-the-top antics of Zep while probably not understanding a word.
