REVIEW:

This newly released Fatboy 6 cds set holds the full 3 days ARMS Concerts from San Francisco December 83 dates that came out only on tape (apart from December 2nd that was released as DVD)  These recordings are superb and certainly would have deserved a silver release, they lsound like having been taped from the front row and all the many instruments receive equal exposure with no lack of high or low ends, at times it may well seems a soundboard. These dates are at the end of the run through the U.S.A. after having premiered in London at the Royal Albert Hall in order to support Ronnie Lane's fight against MS. A number of friends got together and performed some concerts to raise funds, amongst them Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and Ian Stewart from the Stones, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker, Chris Stainton joined company. Unfortunately there has never been an official release from any of these concerts except for a two volume VHS of the London concert, so we have to rely on the much bootlegged video and audio outputs. The concerts are introduced by Bill Graham and each section (Clapton, Cocker, Beck and Page has 6 songs to play before the finale encores where they are all on stage together. E.Clapton starts supported by two drummers (K.Jones and C.Watts), Bill Wyman, Andy Fairweather-Low and the exceptional Ray Cooper that shines through "Rita Mae"while the blues tinged "Have You Ever Loved A Woman?" coupled with "Ramblin On My Mind" brings out the best in Clapton. After "Cocaine" Clapton's set ends and he himself introduces Joe Cocker who plays his hit songs accompanied by the same band, including Clapton with the addition of Jan Hammer and "You Are So Beautiful" and "Feelin Alright" the most applauded numbers by the audience. After that is Jeff Beck's turn and the mood changes into jazz rock with songs like "The Pump" and "Star Cycle" that give Beck the chance to show his prowess and aggressive lead solos. Chris Stainton stays on piano and Andy Fairweather-Low sings on "People Get Ready" and "Going Down". Then it is Jimmy Page's turn being accompanied by Paul Rodgers on vocals and guitar. At the end of "Stairway To Heaven", Page is joined onstage by Clapton and Beck who will play through "Layla" and "With A Little Help From My Friends". Ronnie Lane himself shows up for a touching encore that is the Ledbelly song "Good Night Irene" sung with everybody onstage. The first day is an excellent recording, the second too but there is a cut during "Boogie Mama" maybe due to the tape ending. There is a small variation in the order of the songs played at the beginning of the show. Anyway the final night is the best recorded (if we really need to select between all of them) and certainly the best played, as well as being the longest one.

The packaging is great as far as holding 6 discs, however the limitations of the compact discs are evident when trying to squeeze the 3 nights setlists on the back cover.
