Product Description

Roger Chapman Vocals / Charlie Whitney Guitars / Bobby Tench Guitars-Vocals / David Dowle Drums-Percussion / Michael Feat Bass-Vocals / Brian Johnstone Keyboards-Vocals Roger Chapman and Charlie Whitney formed the Streetwalkers in 1974 following the break-up of their hugely successful band Family. Streetwalkers proved an instant success both on the live circuit in Europe (particularly in the UK and Germany) and through a number of big selling album releases including Downtown Flyers , Vicious But Fair and the best seller Red Card . The Streetwalkers broke up in 1977 following a major UK tour which was duly recorded and released as their final album entitled simply Live . Following the discovery of the live tapes here is the newly mixed CD of the concert held at the Rainbow Theatre from that 1977 tour. The gig is exciting, the playing superb and it begs the question why do a band call it a day when they can perform like this!

There are three rather similar live albums from this tour (which I saw the band on). All are good.

HASH(0x967abd50) out of 5 stars YES! MORE LIVE STREETWALKERS! 11 Jun. 2013
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This live (72 minutes) set is a great example of just how good this band sounded live. The overall sound quality is good/very good-but not perfect. The tapes were apparently saved from the landfill and cleaned up for release. The notes inside the wallet-style cardboard holder (there's no booklet) are identical to the "DeMontfort" set also just released, and there's a b&w photo of the band in the CD tray. All the songs are by Chapman/Whitney except "Can't Come In" by Chapman/Tench.

The band consists of Roger Chapman-vocals, Charlie Whitney-guitar, Bob Tench-guitar/vocals, David Dowle-drums, Michael Feat-bass/vocals, and Brian Johnstone-keyboards/vocals. Songs included are-"Walking On Water", "Me An' Me Horse An' Me Mum", "Mama Was Mad", "Chilli-Con-Carne" (sic), "Dice Man", "Toenail Draggin'", "Run For Cover", "Burlesque", "Can't Come In", and "Crazy Charade".

STREETWALKERS was an altogether harder rocking band than FAMILY, and on this set (and it's companion) the band simply burn. The playing is tight yet has that exciting looseness of the best "Chappo"/Whitney playing. Chapman's vocals are in full force here, and Whitney's guitar stays right with him. And here something needs to be said about the rest of the band. They're tight and strong-following wherever Chapman and/or Whitney take them. This set, recorded on Feb. 25, 1977 (the night before the "DeMontfort" set), is from the last year of the band. But this isn't a band going through the motions, or coasting along. If you're a fan of the live STREETWALKERS set from several years ago (with several of the same songs) you need to hear this set. As I mentioned in the review for the other set, it's still great to hear a band from so many years ago, that was still true to their music. It's a shame that the record industry jumped on the punk bandwagon in search of the next big thing, instead of sticking with bands like STREETWALKERS.

Originally I was going to purchase just one gig because the set lists are almost identical. The only differences are that "Dice Man" is only on the "Rainbow" set, and the lovely, delicate acoustic based tune, "My Friend The Sun" is on the "DeMontfort set. But in the end I went for both. I've been a fan of Chapman/Whitney since the vinyl days of FAMILY, on into STREETWALKERS, and then into some of Chapman's solo efforts. I always thought STREETWALKERS sounded best live-there was an edge to their music-missing slightly from their studio efforts. If you're a fan of the band, you may want both these sets. To my ears you can't have too much live STREETWALKERS, and this (and it's companion) are great examples of just what this band was capable of. Get 'em while they're available and at a good price.

Ditto to Stuart Jefferson's review. I can't get enough Streetwalkers! I thought the audio quality on this one was quite fine, and I really enjoyed this live show. Thanks to Mystic Records for releasing this concert on CD and MP3.
