2.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but boring to listen to, 18 Jan 2010
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)
Clearly lots of people adore this record, and this is why I was swayed into getting a copy. The sound is good, with excellent, punchy bass and crunchy guitars, and the reference made elsewhere to the vocal style of early AC/DC is not too wide of the mark. Unfortunately, the songs are dull and go on for ever. This is not interesting extended jams in the style of the Allmans at Fillmore, more ragged songs that just don't know when to stop. I suggest checking out some sound clips on YouTube before taking the plunge. Turning it up to 11 does, no doubt, help though...

Strange to say I have some sympathy with this review. I owned this album in the early 1970s. Initially I loved it and played it to death but eventually the whole thing began to pall. Having repurchased the record I think the clue is that when Marriott's voice and rhythm guitar are driving the music it is exhilerating. When Framptons lead guitar is dominant for too long it becomes a bit tedious. I suppose some people will think this is heresy but I never found Frampton that interesting a soloist in anything but short bursts. The YouTube clips of the band Live tend to reinforce my view. The 1971 clip of I Dont Need No Doctor gets the song over in 4.31 minutes driven by Marriott's manic energy. The version on this album is twice as long but does not really add much more to the track.

It's still superior to Frampton Comes Alive.
