5.0 out of 5 stars The Long Distance Romancer Returns, 6 July 2004
This review is from: Live at the BBC (Audio CD)
Anyone who has not yet experienced the music of Mickey Jupp is missing out on one of the greatest living singer/song writers. It's hard to class Mickey's work into one particular genre, it could be r'n'b or even straight forward rock and roll - you decide. All I can tell you is that he's been making music since 1964. He has influenced and inspired so many musicians (all of whom hold him in the highest of regard). Countless artists have covered his songs, including Gary Brooker (of Procol Harum), Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, The Searchers, Dr Feelgood and the Judd's (the mother/daughter duet released Mickey's heart render ring track 'Tears For You' and sold 3.5 million copies world wide).
The Live at the BBC CD I help put together and sort of finish off - it was on the shelf for quite some time at Hux so it was nice to be involved with the release of this album. For Mickey's fans it's a break through to get any live recordings of his works. The eighteen track album features so many classic tracks such as the early Legend song "Anything You Do", everybody's favourite "Cheque Book" and the infectious groove of "Short List". "So Long" was recorded and played live regular by Dr Feelgood - Mickey never included this track on any of his own albums. Five songs are played acoustically with Mo Witham - the atmosphere of these recordings is just something else. One track in particular "Wrong Food" has never been released by Mickey or any other artist.
Treat yourself to the only official release of Mickey's works since 1994.

5.0 out of 5 stars very live at the BBC, 31 July 2005

If all you have ever known about Micky Jupp is the Feelgoods version of Down at the Doctors then you have probably misjudged the man. This album demonstrates his all round abilities wonderfully. My feeling is that this is probably the nearest to a UK John Hiatt that we have. Well observed narrative songwriting at its engaging best. buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody marvelous., 1 Jun 2007
This review is from: Live at the BBC (Audio CD)
I saw Mickey a couple of years after this CD's period when his performances were a little more sedate and the fantastic thing about this CD is it contains some great examples of him really rocking out. Everything the other reviewers say is spot on. This is exactly why pub rock was so popular, if you were there then you'll love this and if you weren't - here's a good place to start investigating. Great songs, wonderful musicianship and when necessary, low down dirty raw rock n roll. Bloody marvelous.
