Alone: Live

by: Ben Harper

Originally issued in 1999 as a bonus disc included with some editions of BURN TO SHINE, the deceptively named ALONE EP doesn’t primarily feature lauded alt-rock artist Ben Harper performing solo. Instead, ALONE presents Harper in concert with his Innocent Criminals ensemble, running through a number of tunes from that era in his career, including the slinky title track and the bright, breezy “Steal My Kisses.” The most notable number on the release, however, is Harper’s spare version of Led Zeppelin’s bluesy “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” a tune that showcases his renowned slide-guitar playing to stirring effect. While ALONE isn’t essential Harper, it’s a fine live document that will easily please his diehard fans.
