There may be no music more appropriate for a long hot evening than the sleepy-time-down-South singing and guitar playing of J J Cale. Several of the songs on Live, which was recorded at various venues in the USA and Europe between 1990 and 1996, are from the distant backwaters of his catalogue: "After Midnight", "Call Me The Breeze" and "Magnolia" go back all the way to his 1972 debut album, Naturally; "Cocaine" and "Ride Me High" to 1976's Troubadour; "Sensitive Kind" and "Thirteen Days" to 1979's 5. Over the years Cale has tinkered with them a little but their essential feel is seldom changed. Indeed, they sometimes sound even more spacious and pastoral. These concert recordings, though presenting Cale for the most part in band settings, focus so tightly on the leader that you are hardly aware of anyone else: just those long-drawn-out guitar phrases twisting in the air like twirls of smoke from a summer night's barbecue. --Tony Russell

It's taken him a long time to finaly release the long overdue Live album and boy what a great album it is. His wife once said that you ain't heard him until he's playing on one of those Hot sticky Southern nights on his own back porch.Laid back is not the word as he sort of ambles through this album playing all his usual best loved tracks(Cocaine, Call me the Breeze, Sensitive Kind and After Midnight).So sit back watch the sun go down,pick up your drink and play this album. Perfect pleasure.

OK, look, if you're reading this you don't need me to tell you how good J.J.Cale is! All I can add to the previous reviews is this. Having had the rare good fortune to catch him live on the tour this album was cut from, this CD brings back memories of one of the best gigs I've ever been to. Many nights I've spent with my guitar, strumming away to these tunes, a beer on the table, just as nature intended!

There are some great artists who can sound (even) better in live performance, and my supposition that this might prove true of JJ Cale is amply vindicated by this album. Having enjoyed the 'To Tulsa and Back' DVD, I had high expectations of this album, and these expectations were more than fulfilled.

Released in 2001, 'JJ Cale Live' is a collection of fourteen tracks recorded at various venues in the US and Europe between 1990 and 1996. Cale's best-known compositions are here - 'After Midnight', 'Call Me The Breeze', 'Cocaine' - but there are some excellent if lesser-known tracks too.

I've been very surprised to read some criticism of the recording quality of this album, because to me it seems extremely crisp, and is indeed better recorded than many a studio album.

'Mama Don't' is an interesting point of comparison, because the original track (on the excellent 'Shades' album) was itself a live recording, but the version included here is appreciably better, in my opinion. The musicianship - and most especially Cale's guitar work - are superb here. Sound-wise, the only shortcoming here might be that audience participation is a little intrusive, but this seems to capture the essential atmosphere of the live gigs.

This is a very good album and, since it is (so far as I'm aware) Cale's only live release, it's an essential addition to the collection.

Bought this CD some 3 years ago, played it once and was not impressed at first so didn't really play it again. Pulled it out recently, put the cans on, turned up the volume and from the intro "Ladies and Gentlemen - Mr. J.J.Cale" I was now immersed in a true live concert. Yes the music is not perfect (if you want perfect go and see a modern group miming to their latest CD), but it has atmosphere, excitement and soul. After all you probably got the studio version of most of the tracks anyway - so on a live version you want something different (warts and all)- and you get it. A good example is "Call me the Breeze", a nice jogger on the studio version but real rocker on this Album...and this applies to all the tracks.

Go for it - this is a "must have" album
