Product Description

It is 1978 and Climax Blues Band is at the peak of its powers during a happy golden era when rock bands rule. They had hit the charts the previous year with funky single Couldn't Get It Right and they get it right on again with shiny new album Shine On . It features marvellous performances from a classic Climax line up with Peter Haycock at the helm on lead guitar and vocals. Peter is joined by Colin Cooper, the deep toned vocal-meister and superb alto sax player. They are boosted by a super tight rhythm section comprising Derek Holt (bass) and John Cuffley (drums). Climax romp through eight raunchy tracks, including Makin Love (released as a single and available here as a bonus track) and the stomping boogie Champagne & Rock n Roll . A cover of Tony Joe White's The Gospel Singer comes complete with soulful backing vocalists. Okay, so it s not 1978 anymore, but more than thirty years later, the music still sounds great and Climax rule one more time on this sought-after CD, complete with informative liner notes.

Commercially speaking, this is where Climax started their downhill slide, but for me this is a much better album than the previous years Gold Plated which was hugely successful. A much more complete set of stronger songs where each department of the band's strengths really do shine. From the opening smooth but strong Makin' Love, driven unusually (for Climax) by acoustic guitar the wonderful harmonies around Colin Cooper's lead vocal set the tone for the album, but also Pete Haycock's guitar weaving through the song is quite magnificent. Mistress Moonshine is irresistibly funky, building slowly and again with harmonies of the highest quality, it's a song that is infectious and so pleasing. When Talking... is just the best 'ballad' Climax ever recorded, heartfelt yet still uplifting thanks to a brilliant sax solo, Climax at their best. Whatcha Feel is half the song it became when played live but still has a heavyweight funk feel to it that shows off just how good Climax were in this soon became a live favourite, stretching out to 10 or 11 minutes, showcasing sax and guitar without becoming egotistical solo-ing, keeping the playing in context with the funk laid down by the song. The Gospel Singer proves just how versatile the band were, even within the context of an 8 track album. It is a genuine gospel blues - if only by the fact that Colin's vocals take you there, but in fact the whole effect is pure. Teardrops is (for me) the track that is the only slightly weak link on the album but even this is raised by a great sax solo.Read more ›

I have this on vinyl, and its a frequent visitor to my turn table, and there's not a bad track on it. I've been waiting years for CD re-issue as my vinyl is starting to wear.
It marked a departure from Climax's original blues sound, and is much more commercial sounding.
Stand out tracks for me are champagne And Rock and Roll (written while touring supporting ZZ Top on a US tour), when Taking Is Too Much Trouble, a great Pete Haycock ballad (sadly Pete passed away a few weeks ago), and Like A Movie.
A great more easy listening album, and my favourite Climax album of them all.

Yes, it shines 5 Mar. 2013
By Cubs Win - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Climax Blues Band started as a straight blues outfit, but has evolved into more of a "pop" sounding group. I put their FM Live album right up there as one of the best live albums ever. This album, Shine On, has some really nice songs on it. Making Love and Mistress Moonshine are two of my favorites... not the blues, but strong songs. If you want FM Live, this might not do it for you. But, if you like Flying the Flag and their pop hits like Gotta Have More Love, you'll like this just fine. I happen to like it all and have collected all their albums.

Wow, what a classic rock sound and vibe. Mistriss Moonshine will take you to another place anytime you put it on. Great vocals, rock and blues band who too the time to craft some great songs. Storyteller songs with heart and commitment, played by awesome musicians and singers. This was a moment in time when the rock world really worked well. You can get lost in this album's set of songs and become a real Climax Blues Fan for life. This is how you classic rock.
