Ethan Miller’s Howlin Rain is no stranger to live recordings. Last year’s Live Rain is the ultimate testament to the band’s larger-than-life, seventies arena rock sound. Meanwhile, Miller’s record label Silver Current is devoted primarily to documenting Howlin Rain’s live shows along with shows from his erstwhile noise-rock outfit, Comets on Fire. 2012’s Brooklyn Bowl show captured by Acidjack and hi and lo is no slouch either—check that cover of Richard Thompson’s “I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight” if you require definitive proof.

Compared to their live sound, Howlin Rain’s most recent studio album, Mansion Songs, is a lower-key, stripped-down affair  that showcases Miller’s songwriting and vocals. Currently on tour for that album, Howlin Rain are in full-on guitar rock mode, stretching the songs out well past their recorded lengths. This is arena rock in a small club and the only indication you’re at Baby’s All Right and not Giants Stadium is the reasonably-priced beer. If I were to choose a favorite here, it’s the face melting fifteen-minute “Self Made Man” from previous record Russian Wilds. You won’t hear jamming like it this side of the ’77 Dead tour.

Baby’s FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with the venue’s installed house mics and a stereo soundboard mix. In post-production I mixed these two sources. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
