The Sunday edition of this two night tribute seemed even rowdier than Saturday, confirmed at the conclusion when the emcee announced that the cavernous Winter Garden had actually reached capacity.

The more raucous vibe was likely due to the more upbeat tunes of this album compared to its folksier predecessor. Especially impressive were the Klezmer-inflected instrumental interludes.

The steady ascension of American Beauty to the top of my favorite albums list can be traced back to this night.
