Live in Concert

The DVD is the draw in this CD/DVD combo set, featuring 20 tracks from a September 2007 Illinois show originally filmed for PBS. (The CD features a mere eight songs, although two of them—“From the Ashes” and “Whatever You Say”—are absent from the DVD.) The highlight of the show is a three-song mini-set spotlighting the relaxed country classics Martina revived on her 2005 Timeless album. It’s the other covers here that rankle—Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” are OK songs, but must every current country star encore with at least one classic-rock chestnut?
