A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Michael Jurkovic

Hailing from North Carolina, The Recipe, founding members Joe Prichard - guitars, vocals; Tom Whelan - percussion; Gregg Lowley - drums, vocals; and 2002 additions - Chris Q - bass vocals; Julie Edlow - vocals, guitar; and Kris Kehr on all other instruments bearing strings certainly are making a name for themselves on the summer fest circuit with their energizing and rejuvenating rootsy jams.

With all that said, it's sort of weird that All You Can Eat, their first live disc after three well received studio releases, fails to capture the riotous 'back porch' music they've built their considerable reputation upon. Beyond doubt the playing is jubilantly virtuoso and Edlow's vocals do soar above the Appalachian fray but it doesn't seem to rise above the level of a very good bar band on a very good night. Good music for your next backyard bar-b-que.

Track List:

  • Playing In My Dreams
  • Breaking Out
  • Rise
  • Holy Shit Drink The Wine
  • Mountain Top Blues
