So there I was, sitting in school, with Adam Clayton watching an afternoon-ish show - which I think was called 'Rockpalast' or 'Ready Steady Go', something like that.
Basically live rock performances, not unlike The Whistle Test because Adam's band (U2) were making a debut performance the following week and he wanted to see what the show was like.
So it must have been 1977 because as we watched, up came Steve Gibbons with this record and simply, it blew everyone away. Live from The Whiskey in LA.
This is pure Rock and Roll in the Chuck Berry type. One of the best singles ever recorded, 'Tulane' is from this Album and in fact, a Chuck Berry song. It is blistering. Worth having the Album alone for just this and the Streamabout crew danced it off. It's hard not to.
'Watching the river flow' a Bob Dylan song (and he now has a whole set dedicated to Dylan) opens the Album and here too is a great cover of 'Day Tripper' (Beatles, like you didn't know). Standout tracks are 'Git It' and 'He gave his life to rock and roll'.
Definitely a record to crank the sound up on and I was delighted to see that Steve Gibbons is still around and gigging. He's English and one of the real Rockers in a Dr. Feelgood kinda' way.
This is a great Album, no less and get ready, because here it comes....turn it up!
