Superb early performance
on 29 July 2013
Double CD and double case with good booklet the omens are good from the start - and the music is quite excellent! Dating from 11th April 1970 this is the earliest live performance on CD that I know off from the Ludlow Garage Cincinatti Ohio. This was a favourite venue of the bands and they even gave a free concert to keep it in operation, however the lack of a drinks license scuppered it.
The music on CD 1 is excellent as usual, 8 tracks, 47 minutes. This is the only place where you can hear "Dimples" (old Animals favourite) with Duane singing (apart from Anthology 2). The sound is goodish with the performance storming through. CD 2 is 44 minutes of only one track: Mountain Jam, aka There is a Mountain. This is not only the longest version but possibly the best, they go to places that other bands only dream off.
