Live: Return of the Storyteller - Todd Snider's third live album and nineteenth overall - plays like a masterclass by one man with a guitar and a freewheeling imagination. 

Threading his husky-voiced phrasing through a likable cosmic cowboy manner, he invites you on a tour of tunes humorous (Big Finish, and the have-meets- have-not In Between Jobs), Proustian (Play a Train Song, Too Soon To Tell, and the lump-in-the-throat snapshot of John Prine on Handsome John) and heart-worn (Like a Force of Nature, The Very Last Time, Roman Candles). 

As the fifteen-song set unfolds, you can feel a tangible bond building between Snider and his fans. - While the album captures what Snider laughingly calls his "second tour - because I went out on the road in '94 and never went home until the pandemic" - it acts as both a summing up of a thirty-year career and a look ahead.
