I was at a pal's house just last week listening to late night rock when he puts this CD on the turntable. Recorded in 76 in USA. It's non-stop no overdub live drivin' rock. If you liked Little Feat, Commander Cody, Outlaws, Allman Bros, Marshall Tucker - then these guys are up there with the best of em. It's a staggering, staggering staggeringly good album. Do not hesitate, do not hesitate, do not hesitate to buy it.
ps It's called "Jimmy Bell's Still IN town".

Best Band EVER 22 Aug. 2005
By V. F. Eisenstadt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first found 15-60-75 the Numbers Band in Kent, Ohio in 1978. After much begging, whining and outright stalking, band member Bob Kidney broke down and GAVE me an original copy of "Jimmy Bell's Still in Town," back when it was just an LP. I played the thing until it disintegrated.

This band defied labelling, which is why they are not superstars. It is CERTAINLY not because they aren't wonderful. They take the blues, and some underground jazz/punk/bluegrass/R&B and turn it into the most inescapably addictive, sedcutive noise you can possibly imagine. The opneing riff to the title track slides you down the lonely train into a blues cafe, full of smoke and gospel singers come down low for the cheap booze and ecstatic wanderings of the Singer. Terry Hynde's horn playing just wraps around your forebrain and you are moving to the nasty bass before you even know you got up off your chair. Mike Stacey's lead guitar is the cry of hungry wolves who are only stopped from devouring you by the sound of the drums and the rythym in the night. You are HOOKED. You must never let this music out of your head.

By the time you GET through to "Animal Speaks," you have booked a flight to Cleveland, Ohio and sold all your worldly possessions JUST to get to hear this band play every night.

Buy everything you can find that they ever record.

See you in the dark...

Proto-punk Blues?! 15 Nov. 2004
By Frank Mallis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, proto-punk blues, recorded live in Cleveland, Ohio, 1975. Vibrant rock & squonk. Post-modern blues from a brief moment balanced between the sprawling electric psychedelic jams of the late '60's, and the period when 'the blues' was saved (and ruined) by The Blues Brothers & several American beer advertisers starting in the late '70's. Fresh and remarkable, with whiffs of eclectic avant/underground influences, and plenty of punk sensibility. It makes perfect sense that they came up in the same scene that also spawned Pere Ubu. A great cd, & highly recommended!

rare great live lp 29 May 2009
By Tiny tunes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album sounds similar to Television's Marquee Moon in that songs appear built around a solid drum foundation (David Robinson). Great songs; subtle, but effective guitar and horns. The inspiration for some of the Cleveland, Ohio sound in the late 70's/early 80's (AMG bio tells you all you need to know). Narrative lyrics with an edge. I wish 70's era music was all this good.

Yes, Jimmy Bell IS still in town... 4 Sept. 2006
By P. loynd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Notice that most of the reviews of the Numbers Band are written by folks that have heard them live either in Kent, Ohio or Solana Beach, Ca.

Notice - only 4 stars- the album is good. No recording can really grab the esence of a performing band. Studios have a different life than the stage.

LIVE they are always 5 STARS, and they are still playing.

15-60-75 is one of a kind and an experience not to be missed or taken lighly.

Animal Speaks is a street.

Eye Game is a 3 rail top spin bank shot.

Jimmy Bell is a role model from Ohio... scary enough.
Regional Royalty - The Common Groove 28 Dec. 2010
By Horace Tortoise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
15.60.75, aka: The Numbers Band consists of the primary trio: Robert Kidney - guitar and lead vocals, Jack Kidney - keyboards, sax, harmonica, guitar, etc., Terry Hynde - Mean assax, and a gang of stage heroes that included Gerald Casale of Devo, David Robinson, Michael Stacey (who's guitar riffs at JB's were historic) and several others over 40 years, but for this recording - Michael was on guitar, Drake Gleason - bass, and David on drums. The album is recorded at The Cleveland Agora in 1975, where many of today's superstars made their bones and not far from The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum. The recording captured the band on a night when they were opening for Bob Marley, which speaks to the audience make-up. A Bob Marley audience was truly a rainbow cross section of the universe - hippies, punks, dead heads, suits, Mom's, intellectuals, airheads, all races, etc.. That night, they were treated to a raw energy from Kent, Ohio and a legend grew that keeps the band jamming still, as of the date of this writing. As Kidney left the stage that night, a girl stopped him and complained - "I didn't like that...it hurt!". Gentle reggae in sun drenched Jamaica was not on the menu. Robert grits his teeth and hisses Jimmy Bell - a Cat Iron blues number first played by white guys on Elektra Records infamous Koerner Ray and Glover - Blues, Rags, and Hollers and later by Stoney and Meatloaf (yep, that one), but never with more sinister religion than Preacher Bob that night. Terry Hynde is the older brother of The Pretender, Chrissie Hynde. Terry is a jazz quality improvisor, playing in a blues band that has been ignored by the commercial world, but their common touch and brilliant energy is more than any marketer can handle. The band must be consumed live, in a small club, on a sweaty night, or a dark, freezing, Ohio winter eve. They caught the band in it's youth on this night and the quality has helped keep the boys an area treasure and Regional Royalty.
