Like all great live bands, Ween has diverse repertoire and changes set lists nearly every night, and also doesn't stick to the sound of original recordings, choosing to rearrange, expand, and improvise. They're also reliable, turning in consistently strong live performances, so they lend themselves well to live albums, and ever since 1999's Live compilation Paintin' Town Brown: Ween Live 1990-1998, there has been a steady stream of them, most released on their own indie label, Chocodog. Each of those has captured special concert-Live in Toronto capture them on their legendary country tour, Live at Stubb's was a rowdy, career-spanning marathon show, Live by Request had a self-explanatory title-but for Live in Chicago, their second mass-market Live CD and first Live DVD, they simply presented a typical show from supporting tour for 2003's Quebec. Record over two nights at Vic Theatre in November 2003, CD's track listing is heavy on fan favorites from Chocolate & Cheese and Mollusk-including singles Voodoo Lady and Ocean Man, but also such staples as Roses Are Free, Buckingham Green, spinal Meningitis get Me Down, and I'll Be Your Jonny on th' Spot-with only pork Roll Egg and Cheese from two early albums. There are also a fair number of White Pepper tunes and a healthy dose of Quebec. It's very strong performance, edit together to make for a tight, fluid live album. As the DVD reveals, certain songs have been shifted around on CD-openers Buckingham Green and Spinal Meningitis have been moved toward the end of the CD-which makes for a better-paced album, yet the DVD has the momentum of a true concert, with the band warming up with some slower tunes before tearing into take Me Away and kicking concert into full gear. The extended length of DVD-26 songs instead of 17-showcases scope and skills of Ween better than on CD, since it has space for more styles and sounds, including stronger presence for GodWeenSatan and Pod, plus appropriately majestic cover of Led Zeppelin's all of My Love and a tremendous finale in Blarney Stone. While extras are minimal-alternate angles on three songs aren't particularly interesting, but animated video for transdermal Celebration is-video is sharp and sound, particularly powerful 5. 1 Surround Sound mix, is terrific. But the thing that counts is that this is a grandly entertaining performance-perhaps not as transcendent as Live at Stubb's or Live in Toronto, but convincing evidence of Ween's live prowess.
