CHRIS WHITLEY 
Live At Martyrs'

One of the compelling things about singer-guitarist Whitley is the 
tension between his shyness and his blistering power when he rocks out. 
That tension fuels live, with Whitley reining himself in until he 
finally cuts loose, especially on the incendiary "Gasket."  
Not many can get on stage alone and make this unholy and splendid a racket.
