This is one of the best CD's I've recently bought - 1st class music by 'proper' musicians/singers not a bad track on any of the CD's. Gary Brooker is brilliant he can certainly make the place 'Jump' along with the other artists. If you like good music this is the one to have in your collection it is superb.
I have always enjoyed going to their concerts - seen 4 or 5 of them - and really enjoy the feeling of seeing a proper band, all contributing individually and as an ensemble. There is a great feeling that they are enjoying themselves so much that it is a release for them, and a lot of pleasure for everyone else. These CDs are especially good for the old rockers amongst us, and they conjure up the same euphoria as the live performances. Beverly deserves special mention, as she is in there working like a trojan as usual, and in excellent voice, but everybody is great, and there is even a special treat from Lonnie Donegan at the end. Just the thing for when you are doing your least favourite chores. If this one doesn't get you singing along, nothing will!
Bill Wyman's Bootleg Kings convey the energy of the live performance on this album with a mix of tracks that contain everyone's favourites. I defy you to keep you feet still when this is playing - or from joining in with the lyrics!!
I have never seen them live but this album oozes musicianship at its best.The mix of different styles of music work wonderfully. Gary Brooker in particular can certainly belt them out still as do the other band members. Buy this album you will love it
