The Ambulators With Pete French - On Top

The Ambulators With Pete French - On Top - 2007

review from cdbaby
The term SUPER-GROUP is thrown around far too often but the truth of the matter is that these guys really do all come from SUPER groups. Vocalist Pete French has done time with Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert in Cactus as well as making albums with Atomic Rooster and his own Leaf Hound. Guitarist Ray Majors is a former Yardbird and member of Mott The Hoople. Don Craine and Keith Grant are founding members of The Downliners Sect. Roger Cotton was a member of Peter Green's Splinter Group and Mick Avory is the drummer for The Kinks.

Gary Wright - First Signs Of Life

Gary Wright - First Signs Of Life - 1995

Review from AMG

Some might recall musician Gary Wright from his several hit songs of the '70s and '80s, including the classic "Dream Weaver." His distinctive vocals and visionary use of keyboards to create a mood were definitive trademarks of his sound. For the '90s, Wright has embellished that sound with the addition of invigorating guitar with African and Brazilian influences. The musicianship here is impressive, supplied by Wright again on keyboards and vocals, and guest musicians Terry Bozzio on drums, Ricardo Silveria on guitar, and even George Harrison on backup vocals. The newly composed original material blends Brazilian percussion with African choral music to create an infectious worldbeat hybrid, and the musicians' performances radiate sincerity and joy.

David Lewis - Ghost Rhymes

David Lewis - Ghost Rhymes - 2007

Ghost Rhymes is the third release from David Lewis, who has been producing collections of melodic and gently reflective songs since the late 1980's. Lewis, who is based in West London, has been described as ‘a writer and singer worth getting to know’ (Sing Out!), his work as ‘smart song-craft’ (CD Now). Writing within a modern British folk tradition with strong roots in the 60s and 70s (Sandy Denny, Robin Williamson, Al Stewart, Donovan), Lewis’s songs may draw from past folk traditions, but they aim to present a contemporary respite from modern uncertainties. Co-produced by long-time collaborator John Wesley Harding, Ghost Rhymes features Harding and a host of other talented musicians.

Ghost Rhymes was recorded in Seattle, San Francisco and Harpenden, UK and it features 13 new songs (three co-written with Harding). “Water From the Well” and “Trying to Remember A Dream” feature a full folk-rock band sound, while songs such as “Waterwheel”, “Fever Dream”, “Something Real” and the title track explore a range of acoustic finger-picking styles and tunings.

V.A - The Yardbirds Family Tree - Birds Of A Feather

V.A -  The Yardbirds Family Tree - Birds Of A Feather - 2006

By Dave Thompson from Goldmine Magazine
There’s the Yardbirds’ family tree, and then there’s the Yardbirds’ family tree, and in terms of having something fresh to listen to, one is a lot more enjoyable than the other. John Mayall, Cream, the Jeff Beck Group, Led Zeppelin – whatever is left to be said about the monsters that once took flight from the Yardbirds’ nest? But step away from the antics of a few smart guitar slingers, and there’s an underground swirling around the band’s other members that rarely sees the daylight it deserves.

In fairness, this is less a Family Tree collection, than an anthology of Jim McCarty’s more recent, extra-curricular activities. The British Invasion All-Stars, the Yardbirds Experience and, of course, the Jim McCarty Band are the dominant names here, together with a clutch of McCarty-less highlights from the Ambulators’ tribute to ‘birds mentor Sonny Boy Williamson. Likewise, the 19 tracks turn up a mere handful of established Yardbirds classics (“Shapes Of Things,” of course, kicks it all off), preferring to mine the entire British beat repertoire of bluesy classics, R&B stompers and proto-rock howlers.

The line-up across the four acts is phenomenal – Don Craine, Phil May, Dick Taylor, Eddie Phillips, Mick Green, Matthew Fisher, Ray Majors, Mick Avory, Dave Walker … and that’s just the names that your pet goldfish would recognize. Noel Redding leads one aggregation across a dynamic “Jimi Hendrix Trilogy”; Pete French (ex-Cactus) fronts another through an incendiary “Wang Dang Doodle” and a Cream-stopping “Sitting On Top Of The World.” (Both tracks, incidentally, are previously unreleased.)

There’s no weak moments, no awkward segues, no annoying lapses. From start to finish, Birds of a Feather blazes as brightly as the blues should burn, and rocks with all the passion that the Yardbirds themselves made their own. Others among the band’s hatchlings may grab all the headlines, and make all the noise. But when it comes to actually playing the music, and making it matter, this is Year Zero.

01. Shapes of Things
02. Mona
03. Gimme Some Lovin'
04. Shakin' All Over
05. Green Onions    
06. I'm a Man        
07. Wang Dang Doodle
08. Sitting on Top of the World
09. Outside Woman Blues
10. How Many More Times

11. Framed
12. I Go Crazy
13. How Blue
14. Don't Start Me Talkin'
15. Nine Below Zero
16. Bring It on Home
17. Keep It to Yourself
18. Help Me
19. Jimi Hendrix Trilogy

Tracks 1-6 by The British Invasion All-Stars featuring Yardbirds founding member Jim McCarty along with Dick Taylor and Phil May of The Pretty Things, Matthew Fisher (Procol Harum) Don Craine and Keith Grant (Downliners Sect) Eddie Phillips (Creation) Ray Phillips (Nashville Teens) and Mick Green (The Pirates)

Tracks 6 and 7 are brand new recordings featuring Pete French (Cactus/Atomic Rooster) on vocals. Never before released!

Tracks 9-13 are by The Jim McCarty Band once again with Mr McCarty on drums, co-lead guitar by current Yardbirds vocalist John Idan and former Yardbirds axe-man Ray Majors along with Rod 'The Mod' Demick on bass. Vocals handled by Idan and Majors.

Tracks 14-18 are from the album 'Mostly Sonny-A Tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson' by The Ambulators with Dave (Savoy Brown) Walker on vocals. Don Craine - guitar, Nigel Watson- guitar, Ray Majors-lead guitar, John O'Leary-harmonica, Roger Cotton-keyboards, and Mick Avory (The Kinks) on drums.

Track 19 is a long out of print song by The Yardbirds Experience. 'The Yardbirds Experience' is the same basic line-up as The British Invasion All-Stars with the additional of Noel Redding on bass.

British Invasion All-Stars - British Invasion All-Stars

British Invasion All-Stars - British Invasion All-Stars - 2002

by Alex Henderson from AMG
The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a '60s sound, which isn't surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various '60s bands (some more prominent than others). In rock circles, the term British Invasion is used to describe the wave of British rock bands that made its presence felt in the '60s. Rock was born in the United States, but when the Beatles and many other British acts hit big in the '60s, it was clear that England had become a major player in the rock & roll field.

Formed in 2001, the British Invasion All-Stars boasts former-Yardbird Jim McCarty on drums and lead vocals, ex-Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher on electric Hammond organ, and Eddie Phillips (formerly of the Creation) on lead guitar. The three other members are Ray Phillips, of the Nashville Teens fame, on lead vocals, and two ex-members of the Downliners Sect: rhythm guitarist Don Craine and bassist Keith Grand (who contributes background vocals and shares the lead vocals with Phillips and McCarty). The British Invasion All-Stars' self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the '60s. From covers of well-known songs by the Yardbirds ("Shapes of Things") and the Who ("Shakin' All Over"), to new material, everything on the British Invasion All-Stars' first album is unapologetically '60s-minded. The CD boasts several guest musicians who have strong '60s credentials, including bassist Noel Redding (who was one-third of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) and two ex-members of the Pretty Things: Dick Taylor and Phil May.

This self-titled debut album by the British Invasion All-Stars was released in 2002, but if you didn't know better, you might assume that it was recorded in the mid- to late '60s. That's because their music is a celebration of '60s British Invasion rock, and all of them know a lot about that subject - they were members of bands like the Yardbirds, Procol Harum, and the Nashville Teens. All of the material sounds dated, and that is true of new songs (including the moody "Heavy Weather") as well as covers of '60s hits like the Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things," the Who's "Shakin' All Over," and Booker T. & the M.G.'s "Green Onions" (which ends up with a British blues-rock outlook rather than a Stax/Volt outlook). Even the production sounds dated; if producer/arranger Mike Ober wanted to make this CD as '60s-sounding as possible, he accomplished his goal. But dated isn't necessarily a bad thing if you are a die-hard fan of a particular era; in fact, it can actually be a plus. And for fans of '60s British Invasion rock, this release is dated in a good sense - dated as in being an enjoyable celebration of an era that gave fans great bands like the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Zombies, the Who, and the Kinks. The British Invasion All-Stars' performances fall short of mind-blowing; none of their covers are superior to the original versions. But the album is generally decent, and it is worth hearing if you are a serious admirer of '60s rock.

Simon Phillips and Jeff Babko - Vantage Point

Simon Phillips and Jeff Babko - Vantage Point - 2000

By Hilarie Grey from jazztime 
Offering authentic acoustic jazz from a unique Vantage Point are drummer Simon Phillips and pianist Jeff Babko. Phillips, most widely known as the foundation of pop-rock mega-band Toto, has worked out acclaimed jazz-rock chops over the years. Teaming with the dazzlingly talented Babko, bassist Dave Carpenter and the blistering dual-horn attack of trumpeter Walt Fowler and saxophonist Brandon Fields, Phillips serves up a sound that reveres the masters of '50s and '60s jazz, with the crisp bite of modern production. From the sweet, blithely swinging horn-based feel of "New Blooded," to the wicked film noir sounds of "Miles Away," spotlighting Carpenter's mysterious bass and squinched mute horns, the quintet's sound is vintage-bracing and potent-but with a spacious instrument placement that deposits listeners directly in the club, ringside. The solos stretch, romp and wail, with Fowler's scorching trumpet powering the soulful "Vantage Point," and Phillips offering a huge drum intro to the hard bop of "Bewilderment," for example. A live hyper-fast romp entitled "Spirits of Trane" showcases the band's mind-boggling synchronicity and features some truly inspired sax spirals and squeals that might suggest that actual channeling of these spirits has occurred on this truly transporting effort.

In the 1960`s and 1970`s, Dave Lewis was a major star in the Northwest, with hits such as "David`s Mood" and "Little Green Thing" that featured his tasty, funky Hammond B3 organ playing. He was signed to A & M Records, released several albums, and was a sure-fire draw in clubs. This is the first CD release containing the Jerden Masters recorded in the studio as well as live performances. 24 tracks that constitute the definitive Dave Lewis.

The Patch Of Blue & Tommy Bolin - Correctionville, Iowa

The Patch Of Blue & Tommy Bolin - Correctionville, IA - 1966 (bootleg)

The band formed in 1965 by the remaining members of Denny & the Triumphs after George Larvick, Jr. replaced bassist Denny Foote. The band were managed by George Larvick, Sr., father of band members Brad and George, Jr. George, Sr. did the bookings and drove the bands to gigs in a van with “Patch of Blue” painted on the side.

George, Sr. was impressed with the 13-year-old Tommy’s playing. Whenever he went to pick Tommy up at the Bolin’s home to take him to rehearsal or a show he almost always found him by his phonograph with a guitar, working on learning a new tune. The whole band was very good in spite of their young ages it was a tightly run ship and show, which also help contribute to Tommy’s rapid development in terms of both playing and ease on stage.

They band played a mix of rock & roll, R&B and pop hits such as “In the Midnight Hour,” “Heat Wave” and “Got My Mojo Working.” While George, Sr. enjoyed Tommy’s playing, he has related that he would have to tell Tommy to turn down sometimes. He didn’t feel that Tommy was trying to drown everybody out, but that Tommy felt that what he was playing was good and he wanted the details to be heard.

NB: Esse disco é parte integrante do box set "Tommy Bollin Fever" com 15 cds que registram Tommy em diversos momentos (shows, jams, outakes, etc) e que foi realizado por seu fan club no ano de 1995. Custa a bagatela de 500 dólares. A qualidade do som não é lá grandes coisas, mas vale a pena pelo registro histórico em mais de 1h15 de som.

Stephan Missri and Barry Melton - Jamasutra: Revolution Down The Road

Stephan Missri and Barry Melton - Jamasutra: Revolution Down The Road - 2010

by Jaime O'Neill from newsreview
Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, back when Country Joe and the Fish sang from the back of flatbed trucks to legions of anti-war demonstrators in Berkeley and in San Francisco, providing a heady mix of smart-ass rebellion tinged with apocalyptic fears and acid-addled visions of “Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine.” Other than Country Joe himself, Barry Melton was the big fish in that band, a group more idealistic and studiously dedicated to political action than some others who would ride what was then known as “the counterculture” to fame and fortune. Melton kept the faith, working as a public defender while continuing to explore music, performing all over the world with his own band, and never losing his commitment to social justice and working for a better world. Here, on an album he made with guitarist Stephan Missri, Melton provides a sampling of what international psychedelia sounds like in the 21st century, performed by a guy who helped launch the genre, ably assisted here by Missri, an Algerian-born Parisian who brings his own magic to this party. Melton, Missri and friends create a musical plea to save the planet, with lyrics sung in French and English, backed by lots of kaleidoscopically rippling guitar riffs. Music like this no longer holds the power to “blow your mind,” but it might ramp up your consciousness just a tad.

The Original Steve Gibbons Band - Live In Concert

The Original Steve Gibbons Band - Live In Concert - 2010

from official site

The Steve Gibbons Band were causing a stir across the UK in the 70's when Pete Townshend discovered and mentored them leading to a recording deal with Polydor and touring the World with The Who for 3 years.

They had a UK Top 10 hit with "Tulane" and recorded 4 albums for Polydor and even Roger Daltrey covered "One of the Boys" for his solo album.

Punk & New Wave changed the record industries way of thinking so the original band split, leading to drummer, Bob Lamb becoming a high profile recording producer, notably for UB40, Duran Duran, Ruby Turner, Stephen Tin Tin Duffy & Ocean Colour Scene.

Bob Wilson went on to be MD of the Ruby Turner Band as well as playing guitar for many top Birmingham bands over the past 20 years.

Dave Carroll is a highly respected classical musician who works for the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford upon Avon. He still plays a mean lead guitar!

Trevor Burton, original member of The Move, has fronted his own Trevor Burton Band since the split and is still busy to this day.

Steve Gibbons continues to play his music live across the UK & Europe after over 4 decades in the business covering more miles than NASA's Space Shuttle Program!

Live In Concert this is an exclusive previously unreleased live recording of their acclaimed reunion tour recorded in front of a 1000+ capacity crowd at the Old Robin Hood Club, Merry Hill in Birmingham England in March 98. 78 minutes of 14 great rockin' tracks, ball breaking rhythm section, exciting, soaring dual lead guitars and Steve's classic story telling vocals.

Steve Winwood - Winwood And Friends

Steve Winwood - Winwood And Friends - 1972

from ecrater.com
As a solo artist, Steve Winwood is primarily associated with the highly polished blue-eyed soul-pop that made him a star in the '80s. Yet his turn as a slick, upscale mainstay of adult contemporary radio was simply the latest phase of a long and varied career, one that's seen the former teenage RB shouter move through jazz, psychedelia, blues-rock, and progressive rock. Possessed of a powerful, utterly distinctive voice, Winwood was also an excellent keyboardist who remained an in-demand session musician for most of his career, even while busy with high-profile projects. That background wasn't necessarily apparent on his solo records, which established a viable commercial formula that was tremendously effective as long as it was executed with commitment.

Available on record in various forms, this is an essential insight into SW's early years. Most commonly available on "Steve Winwood and Friends" on the American Springboard label (catalogue # SPB-4040) or the French BYG label, long since out of print, but can be found in decent second-hand record shops and sometimes through the small ads in the Record Collector magazine. This is nice raw stuff with "Mojo" featuring SW and Spencer up at the mic for an all-star jam session including Sonny Boy Williamson, Long John Baldry, Eric Clapton, and Art Themen among others.

Cork - Speed Of Thought


Cork - Speed Of Thought - 1999

from AMG
Eric Schenkman left the Spin Doctors following the dismal performance of their second album Turn It Upside Down in 1994. He drifted for a few years, playing the occasional session, before returning in the pan-generation supergroup Cork in 1995. Essentially, Cork is simply Schenkman and former Mountain drummer Corky Laing, but for much of their debut album Speed of Thought, they're joined by bassist Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix Experience; whenever he doesn't appear, Schenkman handles the four strings. Cork apply jam band mentality to '70s hard rock. They turn up the volume, strengthen the attack, and make it blusey, while still concentrating on loose-limbed jams. The results are mixed, to say the least.

Steve Ellis - A Sort of Innocence

Steve Ellis - A Sort of Innocence - 2004

Steve Ellis will forever carry the millstone that is 'Everlasting Love'. It seems to crop up with worrying frequency on most of his albums, and on this new solo offering it is featured twice. Ageing rockers and pop pickers will recall that it was Ellis who fronted teen sensations Love Affair and scored a No.1 hit with that song in 1968.

Fortunately the two versions are different to the original, the live version recorded when Ellis was a guest at a Paul Weller gig in 2001 and featuring the Modfather on guitar.

Following a low-key career revival and spurred on by recent CD and DVD releases, this  album is very good. Ellis not only has Weller guesting on a couple of studio tracks, including Weller's own composition, the opening track "Brand New Start", but he managed to pull in Roger Daltrey for a spot of harp blowing in "Nu Clear Blues" and "Yellow Rose Of Texas".

That's where big-name support ends, but with an excellent backup band and featuring two songs by newcomer Sam Smith, Ellis doesn't really need the bunk-up. Ellis' own songs are a mixture of nicely-styled pop-rock with blues and soul overtones.

Whilst an album like this will always remain niche with limited mass appeal, it is good to hear Ellis again. In general the songwriting and playing is top-draw and will appeal to ageing rockers and those for whom the letters AOR provoke unashamed anticipation.

This CD has been withdrawn from the market in 2008 and is replaced by "Best Of Days".

Leon Russell - Looking Back

Leon Russell - Looking Back - 1973

from wikipedia
Looking Back is a Leon Russell solo album. Released in 1973, shortly after the success of his single Tightrope, it contains instrumental tracks that were recorded in the mid-1960s, featuring Russell on harpsichord. Neither the record or the album sleeve give writing credits for any of the songs. There was briefly a CD re-issue in 1991 on the Japanese Jimco label, with three bonus tracks.

from amazon
This rare Leon Russell solo album from 1973 was a slight departure from his previously recorded efforts and stands as his only all instrumental album. The album features Russell playing the harpsichord accompanied by the amazing rhythm section of Earl Palmer on drums, Jimmy Bond on bass, and Tommy Tedesco on guitar. All selections newly remastered. This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Buddy Miles - Changes (DVD-A)

Buddy Miles - Changes (DVD-A) - 2008 

When Buddy Miles died on February 28th, 2008, it marked the passing of one of rock and roll's most flamboyant characters. Primarily known for his skill as a drummer, Buddy played with and for a who's who of rock and roll's elite as well as carving out a successful solo career as a band leader. Aside from the seventeen albums he recorded under his own name, he appeared on albums with Michael Bloomfield and Electric Flag, Gregg Allman, Carlos Santana (he was vocalist for Santana from 1979 - 84), and as the voice of the California Raisins.He is most famous though for his association with Jimi Hendrix.

He recorded a couple of songs with Jimi on Electric Ladyland, before becoming his permanent drummer in the Band Of Gypsies and recording the famous live New Year's Eve concert at Filmore East, Band Of Gypsies. Ironically his time with Jimi was limited to only a year before Jimi's management fired him. Billy still believes that the idea of an all black rock and roll band, Billy Cox was the bass player, made the record companies nervous at the time. They were probably scared it would have a negative impact on record sales.

Aliás, aproveitando que já tô muito puto, resolvi que irei fazer uma limpa nos PARCEIROS. Ficarão 2 tipos:

1) Aqueles parceiros de primeira hora, que adicionaram o blog quando ele estava nascendo, como os dois do meu parceiro Duga - que não se inclui no tipo 2 - e a galera do seres-da-noite.

2) Alguns poucos que realmente cumpre a função de trazer alguma visita. Não que esteja preocupado em ter 200 ou 2000 visitas por dias. Já passei dessa fase e sei que isso não significa feedback. Mas não vou pendurar blogs que não trazem UM (eu disse UM!) só visitante. 

Os "excluídos", continuarão linkados na aba blogroll, inclusive aqueles que nos linkam apenas com o simples nome do blog. Àqueles que acharem que esse gesto inviabiliza a "parceria", fiquem a vontade para retirar o OGS, sem comprometimento da amizade.

Não entendam isso como um surto de vaidade ou de querer ser mais do que esse pequeno blog é e tem a pretensão de ser. Apenas vou aproveitar para deixar o visual mais clean e com o carregamento mais rápido (essa, uma reclamação que já ouvi algumas vezes dos amigos mais chegados)

É isso por agora. Resta-me esperar a reconsideração que já encaminhei para o blogger e retornar à cerveja que deixei esquentando lá fora.

Max Middleton - Land of Secrets

Max Middleton - Land of Secrets - 2003

Max Middleton is best known as the pianist in the second, most successful version of Jeff Beck Group. Middleton was trained as a classical pianist but also possessed a strong affinity for jazz, and had played in a band called Flare with Trinidad-born bassist Clive Chaman. His hook up with Beck came about in the spring of 1971, while the guitarist was rehearsing the lineup of his reconstituted band (including Chaman) and decided that he needed a pianist. At 20, Middleton was one of the youngest players on the early-'70s blues-rock scene, and his youth, coupled with his devotion to jazz, quickly made him a mainstay of Beck's group - his jazz piano was one of the more successful new elements introduced on the Rough and Ready album, and on the next LP, Jeff Beck Group, Middleton also wrote an outstanding instrumental track entitled "Definitely Maybe." Middleton was also the only member to make the jump from the second version of Jeff Beck Group to the third, which was really the prototypal Beck, Bogert & Appice, but he left before that trio had gotten far into their short-lived hook up. He passed through a group called Gonzales before rejoining Beck in 1974 - with other core members of Gonzales soon to follow - to collaborate with the guitarist on the instrumental Blow By Blow album, which became the top-selling LP of Beck's whole career, reaching number four on the American charts. Middleton also played clavinette on the Wired album that followed, after which he parted company with the guitarist.

Spencer Davis & Band - 24 hours

Spencer Davis & Band - 24 hours - Live in Germany - 1988

from wikipedia
Spencer David Nelson Davis is a British musician and multi-instrumentalist, and the founder of the 1960s rock band, the Spencer Davis Group.

In 1963, Davis went to a Birmingham public house to see Muff Woody, a traditional jazz band featuring Muff and Steve Winwood. Steve, only fifteen at the time, was already gaining notice for his musical abilities. Muff, five years older than his brother, was an accomplished jazz musician. When Davis saw the brothers' musical versatility, he knew he had found his band. He soon persuaded them to join him and drummer Pete York as the Rhythm and Blues Quartet. Davis performed on guitar, vocals and harmonica, Steve Winwood on guitar, organ and vocals, Muff Winwood on bass, and Pete York on drums. Playing mainly R&B covers, the band performed first at the Golden Eagle pub on Hill Street, but within a year they had landed a regular gig at The Marquee, and by 1964 had adopted the name The Spencer Davis Group. The group had No 1 hits in the UK with consecutive single releases in 1966 (Keep on Running and Somebody Help Me). Steve Winwood sang lead vocals on all the Spencer Davis Group's hits up to "I'm A Man" in 1967.

The Spencer Davis Group continued after Winwood left, to form Traffic in April 1967, and split in 1969. Another version of the group with Davis and York appeared in 1973 and disbanded in late 1974. Various incarnations of the band have toured in recent years, under Davis' direction.

Paul Rodgers and Friends - Live at Montreux 1994


Paul Rodgers and Friends - Live at Montreux 1994 - 2011 

from blogcritics.org
The distinctive voice of Paul Rodgers has been heard on some of the best rock albums released over the years from Free to Bad Company to The Firm to Queen. Not surprisingly, he’s made many friends along the way. So, in July 1994, Rodgers put together an all-star band of his friends to support his 1993 Grammy nominated Muddy Water Blues: A Tribute to Muddy Waters. However, few of the players on that studio release were tapped for Live at Montreux 1994, now on both CD and DVD. Only Queen’s Brian May (guitar), Journey’s Neal Schon (guitar), and Black Country Communion’s Jason Bonham (drums) returned to join the other performers on stage in Montreux. New players included Ian Hatton (guitar), John Smithson (bass), Toto’s Steve Lukather (guitar), and blues musicians Eddie Kirkland, Sherman Robertson, Luther Allison, Robert Lucas and Kenny Neal.

As a result, this concert became something of a paint-by-numbers rock/blues evening with some of the best artists in the business filling in the colors. The first two numbers, “Travelling Man” and “Wishing Well,” are ‘70s arena rock warm-ups. The show really begins with “Louisiana Blues” (the first song taken from the studio record) and “Fire And Water” before the ensemble gets down and Delta-dirty with “Muddy Water Blues,” which had been recorded in both electric and acoustic versions for the tribute CD. Other live performances taken from the studio work include Willie Dixon’s “I’m Ready” and a shuffle version of Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Morning Little School Girl” featuring May. While he had been on the Muddy Waters album, Beck is only present in spirit with “Let Me Love You Baby.” This track retains the same arrangement heard on Beck’s 1968 Truth LP.
