The recording quality is excellent on both records. There is some between-song banter with the audience, some of it funny and charming, and some of it political without being pedantic. It doesn't obscure or detract from the strength of the music.
If you're looking to explore more of his studio records and you only have Running On Empty,
then my next suggestion would be Late For The Sky
, which is think is his best studio work.
