REVIEW:

This double disc set is a great uncirculated recording of an e xcellent show: there has been just the need to edit the tracks, equilibrate the channels, giving slightly more depth to the sound and prepare the discs to be burned as well as create the covers. The line-up here features Mick Taylor on guitar and vocals, Max Middleton on keyboards, Robert Ahwai on guitar, Michael Bailey on bass and Martin Ditcham on drums (who has also played on Undercover). This is classical Taylor solo material and the beauty of the recording enhances the pleasure in listening to the wonderful playing: nirvana for Taylor collectors. After solid performances of Secret Affair and Twisted Sister Disc One highlight is certainly the 15 minutes version of You Gotta Move   where Taylor s guitars shines well supported by Robert Ahwai who is allowed to play a solo around 9.40 minutes into the song.

A Stone s Throw was just 3 years old at those times, but Taylor invites the audience to buy it at a stall close by, just in case. Martin Ditcham has lots of room to play drum solos during Goin South that opens Disc Two as well as the other band members this time lasting almost 25 minutes. That is followed by You Shook Me and not, as incorrectly written on back cover, by Blues In The Morning; another mistake being the so called Band Introduction 2 listed at track 6 on Disc Two which does not exist, the track is just the beginning of Boogie Man.

Packaging is essential but nice, with just one photo on back cover of the concert hall, however front cover has the same side colour of the Hamburg 97 concert and, frankly, the building where the concert was held   is really ugly, probably a Taylor on stage shot would have been better.
