4.0 out of 5 stars Seventies rock with 2K attitude, 6 Jan 2001
This review is from: Ride On (Audio CD)
Some rock music is just to tame and precise. The best live music should be a little sweaty, a little raw. 'Ride On', half of which was recorded live should be played loud and enjoyed. The three-piece band led by Alvin Lee is tight, powerful and gritty. If you like excellent lead guitar breaks listen to 'Ain't nothing Shakin', taken from the 'Rocket Fuel' album it confirms Alvin has lost none of his speed! The classic 'Hey Joe' is as close to Hendrix as you might care to get, but with added attitude. TYA fans may remember the 'Recorded Live' version of 'Going Home'; it was a sculpted piece of work. The 'Ride On' version leaves it standing. Its got more drive than even the 'original' Woodstock recording and is a energy packed 8.46 minutes. The studio tracks have an American feel (ZZ Top). The gem is 'It's a Gaz'. Hard to describe and harder not to hum after you have heard it a few times. 'Too Much', 'Sittin' Here' and 'Can't Sleep At Night' are formula rock, a bit of power chord, nondescript lyrics and stomping lead solos. The odd ball track 'Ride On Cowboy' is almost easy listening and not the first track to play. As part of this album it can be enjoyed because it gives you time to breath, even if the air has a distinct 'country' whiff. Much of seventies music is well past its sell by date, however 'Ride On' is not even crispy around the edges and well worth a listen.
