This is a kind of continuation (albeit from a different manufacturer) of the CD Pure Heat. That CD presents songs from April of 1997. This release picks up in August, and covers songs that were not included in the earlier release. Though not quite as powerful, this is still a very good recording of some great performances. The sound quality varies slightly, and doesn't flow from track to track as nicely as its predecessor. The package is fairly nice. The lack of Dylan on the front cover is made up for with a picture CD. This is a great title to represent the month of August. It's a bit presumptuous, and falls short of the mark, however, to claim to represent the year 1997.
