I bought this after seeing them live at The Plug Sheffield.
Watched and listened to them for years on the net and DVD.
It brings back the experience (I can think of no other way to describe the live concert - yes concert not gig) Quality of sound, musicianship and relaxed presentation.Not the excitement and adrenaline of Government Mule,something entirely different to the Allman Brothers Band, something superior in sound and variety to Joe Bonamassa.Sounds of Afro,soul (touch of Curtis Mayfield there?)blues,gospel and jazz with a touch of rock just for good measure.Derek displays a mastery of slide (or is it an electric violin, synthesizer or magical instument, people ask me)he must have an incredible touch to produce the range of sounds that he achieves. The band are all excellent in their abilities,can't fault any of them, so professional and happy to be there.
I felt mesmerized, it took me back to a park in Birmingham UK in the 60's watching, more so listening to, Indo Jazz Fusion.
I'm not one to sit back and watch a performance,I want to be there in it but this is so much more and suprisingly I relax and listen.
Just like Already Free, it has become an obsessive play.
