If you know who Taiwan’s favorite geek boy, Crowd Lu, is, you would understand why I am very tempted in tagging this a “comedy.” It’s not only the way he carries the bowl cut — which is custom picked, as we see from the 35-minute documentary included in this release — or the big and pretty thick glasses he uses, or how disproportional his guitar actually is for his height. Sure, he’s the complete geek package, but there’s something about Crowd Lu that just makes people happy.

Maybe it is the sincerity he shows for the music he likes, and boy does he like a variety of music~ I wonder if Crowd Lu and his team really came up with the idea of Good Morning & Good Evening just because he had a songlist that he was unable to cut down. Shot at the Taipei Arena on December 18th 2010, Lu ran a marathon gig that lasted from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. — all 12 hours of pure Crowd Lu happiness, resulting in this 3-disc concert set.

During this summarized version of the concert, Crowd Lu does his usual indie pop folk — the happy and nostalgic kind — and adds as varied a cover as The King Elvis Presley is to traditional singer Yip Chi-Ten, or Queen is to Teresa Teng, or Consuelo Velazquez is to high-pitched Russian vocalist Vitas. Dude sings in Mandarin, English, Taiwanese, Spanish, and made-up Russian~ Please, he rocks.

What his creative team has in hard work, however, this release lacks in technical points. I’m a little bummed that the concert is shot in widescreen, but it’s presented in full-screen letterbox to fit in the song captioning at the bottom. Despite that minor detail, which might or might not bother others, the rest of the packaging is useful, being able to fit a 6-disc set in a regular slim series case, with graphics printed on matte paper — perfect to not get those fingerprints on!

Overall, I think Good Morning & Good Evening is a good deal — YesAsia has it at about $29USD, with an added memo pad, while the autographed version is at about $33USD.

I leave you with this clip of Crowd Lu singing along to that contagious traditional Taiwanese tune, The Neishan Girl Getting Married.
