Recorded in Nottingham, England as part of Thorogood’s extensive European tour this is what many would consider as down to earth Rock’N’Roll Rhythm’N’Blues as you’ll likely to get. Thorogood is a survivor and this thirteen track live boogie offering goes along way to supporting the adage ‘’if it ain’t broke don’t fix it‘’ to the max.
His most famous tune is ‘’Bad To The Bone’’ (you will have heard it at some point) and the rest of the songs are blood and bear, sweat and energy Rawk! Nottingham might not be the US of A and a strange place to record a live album for such a well travelled band but Throrogood’s no-nonsense approach to his music is a good here as it is anywhere else. Can’t ask for much more than that. (Online January 2, 2005)
