For those who follow the jam band scene, Bonnaroo was Mecca. 70,000 people came together through word of mouth and e-mail (no advertising), and converged on an exceptional gathering of artists. To take the three day music festival, populated by bands that thrive on live energy and extended jams, and cram it into one package, even a two-CD set, is a daunting task. The fact that much of the energy survives the transition is an achievement in itself. The fact that it translates into a mostly cohesive album is an absolute wonder.
