We gave it a B+

One of the compelling things about singer-guitarist Chris Whitley is the tension between his shyness and his blistering power when he rocks out. That tension fuels Live at Martyrs’, with Whitley reining himself in until he finally cuts loose, especially on the incendiary ”Gasket.” Not many can get on stage alone and make this unholy and splendid a racket. B+
