As the last album by the Haycock - Cooper - Holt - Cuffley line-up, Lucky For Some represents the end of an era and is an excellent offering although probably the weakest of the Warner Brothers albums. With the success of 'I Love You' the attempt to follow up is indicated by the inclusion of three songs led by Derek Holt of which Darlin' was the single, but the other two are better songs, Breakdown being particularly good and moves along at a good pace.
This album is really all about Last Chance Saloon, the album's stand out track and one of Climax' finest, a church like gospel slow blues with an awesome Colin Cooper vocal and superb lyrics, backing vocals par excellence and brilliant guitar and sax solos - what's not to like? :-) it's all in just over four and a half minutes and really does mark the end of an era. Shivers down the spine.
Elsewhere, Victim opens up the album on an upbeat and a bounce, a good solid Haycock song which a great hookline. Cuttin' Up Rough follows and this is a real diamond, a story song involving wrong doing and vengeance, all at a brisk pace, great musicianship throughout, lovely keyboard work and shared vocals by Colin and Derek. The Haycock and Cooper trademark guitar and sax runs...It was a great live song with Pete Haycock extending the guitar work. A true Climax classic.
Shake It Lucy is great fun, another track that worked well live. As a Deep Purple fan I remember being delighted to see Glenn Hughes making a contribution on backing vocals. In truth he doesn't go anywhere Derek Holt wouldn't get to in the falsetta range :-)
The rest of the album is good if not great. Over all it is pleasing and the highlights are enough to make it a great album.
The addition of the single version of Darlin' is not particularly exciting, I prefer albums to end where they are supposed to end - in this case it should really have been with Last Chance Saloon at the time, but the beauty of iTunes is in re-shuffling the track order :-)

Can't go wrong 25 Jun. 2013

If you like the new wave of Climax Blues Band, this is one of two you should definately buy. I happen to love the song Darlin on this disc and was glad to hear it on CD all nice and remastered. I've been waiting for this one for a long long time.

What happened to the sampling option? 4 Mar. 2014
By Richard J. Baumgartner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
That's pretty much all I have to say, except I would think that Amazon is missing out on some possible sales by not offering this option. I'm giving it a high rating because almost all of their music is great and because I can't post anything without giving it a rating.
