Ray Dorset's present backing band (of Martin, Luederwaldt, Troike) creates faithfully here the good time music & sounds that Mungo Jerry first came out with in the early 70s. The recordings were made under live studio conditions which produces a beautiful vibe. There were a couple of the pure skiffle type offerings that I was not so keen on, but otherwise there are many excellent pieces here. There's nothing particularly new about it, but there is enough variety from jug band to rock'n'roll to 50s doo-wop to pure pop to rock to folk protest to skiffle, plus with an overall excellent performance like this, manages to straddle all age groups & countries. Certainly you can imagine this sounding forth from a German beer festival along with the sounds of thumping beer glasses. Less blues orientated than Mungo's previous album from 2003, & though there is still that, here it is really back to pure Mungo (Dorset's guitar playing & vocals seem ageless) & whose more purist fans should surely love. Great value for money with 18 tracks (15 seemingly composed by Dorset) clocking in at 71mins plus. Standouts are 1. 'Cool Jesus', 5. 'Give Us A Song', 8. 'Going Up The River' ("we are happy happy people having fun" which says it all), 9. 'You Can Get It If You Want It' (this rocks), 10. 'I Lie Awake', 11. 'Red Leather & Chrome', 13. 'I Wanna Live In The Sun', 15. 'Praying So Hard' (brilliant driving snarling blues). Mungo Jerry gives a demonstration for other 60s/70s bands on how things could be done in 2011.
