REVIEW:

For Taylor fans the late 80s through the 90s is the period where Mick Taylor reached his pinnacle in his live performances, his guitar playing is excellent and creative and songs change in the setlist   offering a complete spectrum of his influences and taste as well as of his own playing ability. As the label suggests Frankenstein Production aim is to present recordings as complete as possible by mixing two sources of the same show, although in such process some compromise must be accepted. According to back cover notes the first source for this show was complete but had saturated sound, while the second one posted on a Stones message board some time ago offered a better sound but the encore was missing, hence it was decided to make a mix of both sources to get the best quality and most complete show possible. For this concert the line-up is: Mick Taylor on guitar and vocals, Bernard Purdie on drums, Max Middleton on keyboards, Shane Fontayne on guitar (real name Michael Barakan) of Springsteen and Lone Justice famer and Wilbur Bascomb on bass. 2 microgaps have been deleted from the transitions between the songs and the beginning and end of the disc. Highlight of the show is Goin South a samba instrumental that lasts over 15 minutes; Laundromat Blues being the encore comes from the worst source. As far as equalizing a little more treble was added, however the sound output is excellent with great sharp stereo separation, Taylor mainly on the left and Fontayne on the right channel, a recording that had undoubtedly been made very close to the PA System, had it not been for the encore it would have deserved a full 10. This is a joy for fans ears, too bad the whole length is slightly over 80 minutes and even cutting off the initial tuning it would not have fit into one disc.
