I purchased this album 2nd hand about 7 years ago and have since acquired all of George's albums on cd (20 at last count).Although they are all great,this one stands out as my favourite.As I write,I have just finished listening to it again and it confirms in my mind that this is not only Thorogood's best ever album,but (and this is a BIG statement) the BEST LIVE ALBUM,BAR NONE,ever released by anyone,and I include the Stones,Zeppelin,AC/DC,etc in that. Seriously, this is the Mother (with a capital M)of all live albums. Recorded in Atlanta and St.Louis,the scene is set right from the start with the expectant crowd chanting "George,George" before the Destroyers rip into a raucous rendition of "No Particularlar Place To Go". "Ride On Josephine" is a ball-tearing tribute to Bo Diddley and that's followed by a gutsy version of the Beatles' "Bad Boy". "Cocaine Blues" is delivered with a kind of hard rockin' country style before "the show starts" with that wake-up call to all those dull,boring chicks that we've all had at one time or another, "If You Don't Start Drinkin'". "I'm Ready" follows (that's the one from "Haircut" not the earlier,different song) before George takes some refreshment - "You can't do the blues without the booze" and launches into a poignant version of "I'll Change My Style". The album picks up momentum again with "Get A Haircut", a blistering version of "Gear Jammer","Move It On Over" and "You Talk Too Much". The best is saved till the end with the encores. Guitar legend Elvin Bishop joins the band on "Let's Work Together" which is delivered in an almost evangelistic way with George blessing the "congregation" in the leadup to the song.Johnny Johnson makes an appearance on this and also on "St.Louis Blues" which in my opinion is the pinnacle of a set in which it is difficult to pick a highlight,such is the quality of this record.Finally, "the rock'n'roll national anthem" - "Johnny B.Goode" is probably the best and ballsiest version I've heard - "Let's shake the roof off this mother tonight!" My only complaint is that the song fades out before the end,but this in no way detracts from the impact of the album. My advice,get this album,get your mates round,have a few beers and play this record LOUD !!
