REVIEW:

Alvin Lee and Mick Taylor’s Euro tour opened in Italy on the 26th of October in Torino and this recording presents that show. Let s say soon that the songs order is messed up as the opening song is "One Of These Days" so track number 6 through the end of Disc One; then the concert should continue with Disc Two and then switch back to the first songs on Disc One through the encore "Choo Choo Mama": pretty messed up here. The line up has Alvin Lee with Mick Taylor on guitar alongside Fuzzy Samuels on bass and Tom Compton on drums. Apart from the songs mixed up this is a decent recording which offers a good document of this concert, the sound is not spectacular but you can hear all instruments and despite some hiss Alvin Lee guitar tricks and vocals stand out as usual. Only missing number from the concert is "Just Another Boogie" and "Can't Stop" unfortunately fades out at the end. One of the best songs is Sonny Boy Williamson "Help Me" that lasts for 12 minutes and features harp from Lee himself at the beginning and great guitar solo in the middle and ending, the show ends with a great version of    "Choo Choo Mama" a short boogie in usual Lee style that follows the classic hymn "I'm Going Home".


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
