This review is from: Live From Across The Pond (Audio CD)
Some reviewers have commented that this is 1.not his best live album and 2.the audience were subdued and that the Albert Hall was half full as this was a support slot for EC.
As a huge Walter Trout fan you can tell when an artist feeds off his audience.
Walt is a prime example as ive seen him tons of times, and can testify to shows from good to outstanding.The good is Walt doing his best with an audience that while obviously enjoying the show aren't exactly ecstatic participants. Excellent is when he gets a crowd in the palm in his hand and can deliver a truly heartfelt performance from the soul.
I guess what im trying to say is that this is a great live album which, taking into account the above factors,could have been so much better, but is still a great RC performance( listen to 12 Year Old Boy).
Robert IS an astounding performer, see him live, but please do not be swayed from NOT buying this album.
Great music, great band....Great!!!!
I met drummer Kevin Hayes a couple of years ago hitting the skins for Matt Schofield and he said drumming for Robert was an amazing time.I concur.
