HAYDEN Live At Convocation Hall (Hardwood/Universal) Rating: NNN Rating: NNN
After three years without out a peep, Hayden returns with his second album in 12 months. Sadly, though, it's almost the same record. The two-disc Live At Convocation Hall features Hayden performing most of his excellent Skyscraper National Park disc as well as a few older favourites. There are a couple of unreleased tracks and a smattering of witty stage banter, but there are no real shake-ups here. It's a nice memento for those who were at the show, but it's hard to imagine what anyone who wasn't there would get out of it. Hayden joins the Someone Needs A Time Out benefit at Lee's Palace tonight (Thursday, July 25).
