This is the best Jools Holland album you can buy. The first track is Bumble Boogie. This is the original Jools Holland R&Blues Orchestra, i.e. Jools and Gilson. In the early 90's Jools toured with just the two of them and the band grew from that nucleus. This track demonstrates Jools great boogie Piano playing and gets the album off to a flying start.
It only gets better from there. Other standout tracks are High Street and Dr Jazz. In all honesty there are no bad tracks and if you're interested in straightforward Rhythm & Blues with a touch of Rock 'n' Roll and a hint of Jazz then this is the album for you. Because its a live album there is a great atmosphere, and it gives Jools a chance to deliver a few typically pithy lines when introducing the songs or the musicians.
