4.0 out of 5 stars A "Must-Have"! Dec 9 2006
By Carolyn
Format:Audio CD
An essential souvenir for those who were lucky enough to catch "The Hard and The Easy" tour and a must-have for those who didn't. The fact that the boys love what they do shines right through. Captures a lot of the banter between the group, as well as their abundant energy. The "living room version" of "Sea of No Cares" is worth the price alone. The bonus videos are great to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST CANADIAN BAND Dec 1 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've never had the chance to see GBS live in concert but I imagine this is as close as it gets. This album is not quite as good as road rage, but very close. The accoustic version of sea of no cares is amazing, and the new songs sound "great" live. Amazing album go get it NOW!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars love GBS - not great "Live" quality Jan. 9 2007
By Megan K. Helfrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
GBS is awesome... and the disc is pretty good (CD & DVD) but the "live" sound quality leaves a little to be desired.

4.0 out of 5 stars The next best thing to being there Dec 14 2006
By A. Gammill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate (REALLY fortunate, I live in the Southern U.S.) to have seen Great Big Sea on this tour. In fact, the material for "Courage & Patience & Grit" was recorded just over a month after I saw the band play. So I can say with certainty that this is a pretty close approximation to what I saw.

A previous reviewer complained that the boys look tired. But the album's liner notes reveal that the Hard and the Easy tour was divided into 2 parts: The first half is the more intimate, folk-based side of the band. The 2nd half really kicks things into gear.

This is GBS's third live album, and I was delighted with the 2-part concert approach. Old favorites like "Excursion Around the Bay" and "Mari-Mac" never sounded better, while a stripped-down "Sea of No Cares" is simply breathtaking.

In addition, there are 4 music videos that were not available on the excellent "Great Big DVD" collection from 2004. Longtime fans will surely be thrilled to have the video for "Lukey", which includes members of the Chieftains (and is a different mix of the song than previously released). The video clips for "Shines Right Through", "When I Am King" and "Captain Kidd" are mostly in the same vein as the band's other videos. That is, they're pleasing enough, if not exactly groundbreaking.

If I have one minor complaint about this set, it's the audio CD of the concert. Part of the charm of the band's live sets is their connection both to the audience and to the other band members. This is evident on the DVD, especially Alan and Sean's playful banter leading into "The Mermaid." This is completely absent on the CD (as are four of the concert's songs, a necessary concession due to the limitations of CD recording). But the real problem is that I noticed small gaps in between each track. This is irritating in that it breaks the continuity of the "live" recording. A minor point, like I said, but it just means I probably won't be playing the CD nearly as much as I do my "Great Big DVD" live CD.

If you're a fan, this is certainly a worthwhile--and very reasonably-priced--addition to your collection. It's not quite perfect, but it's ALMOST as good as the "real thing."

2.0 out of 5 stars Get Some Rest Boys Nov. 28 2006
By Concerned Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It could have been so much better. Watching the DVD, the band appears exhausted, and almost every song is sung flat. I was looking forward to this concert DVD, since their first live DVD/CD was great (it even aired on the CBC, but I hope this one does not). I have seen them live, and I can tell you that this DVD does not represent how great GBS can be onstage. If you get a chance to see them in concert, don't let the "Courage & Patience & Grit" performance keep you from going. I look forward to their future projects and shows, but this one should not have been released. I know that recording live is expensive, and timing it is diffucult, but they should have used a better performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars They sound tired July 23 2007
By Chronos467 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This one is just disappointing. I absolutely love GBS but this offering is not up to snuff. They sound raspy, worn-out and tired. This is evident by Alan's changing several melodic lines to avoid signing high. The energy of both the band and the crowd are not near as high as in the Great Big DVD. This is nice to have the more recent songs, but I wish it would've been a better performance.

Nonetheless, an average performance by this band is still better than most bands playing today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection Jan. 15 2007
By Michael J. Drouillard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm always eager, yet nervous, about buying live CDs. Most of them are great, but some fall short of my expectations. I quite enjoyed this CD, but have yet to watch the DVD. This is a band that knows how to have fun with the audience, and with their music. I would love to see them live someday, but they rarely make it anywhere nearby. This may not be as enjoyable to "first time listeners", but fans will love it!
