REVIEW:

This release presents   a great recording from Ron Wood & Mick Taylor of the first concert held in New York s The Cutting Room on November 7th 2013, during their visit to the USA to promote their tribute to Jimmy Reed, one of the heroes of the British blue revival of the early 60s. Actually he was the chief proposer of the urban blues Stones sound and it is quite strange that Keith Richards did not find time to show up for any of the dates his mates arranged not far from his Connecticut residence.   This is a very good recording, unfortunately one of the few that have been available of the whole 4 concerts, supposedly an official audio-video will come up sometime in the future; certainly both guitars play familiar rhythm patters and Ron Wood distinctive vocals and harmonica

 Playing fit very well with the original Reed compositions. Jimmy Reed songs are very easy to catch up and present most of the time the same catchy and repetitive  melody, with lyrics written by the man s wife Mama Reed. However they are a who s who of electric blues, here played with the help of Simon Kirke on drums and Wilbur Bascomb on bass and the special appearance of Al Kooper on organ. Particularly impressive are songs where both guitarists play the slide offering great duels on solos that show them to be in perfect shape even outside the Stones structure like on the final song Going To New York. Mick Taylor s solos are not that many but tasty as in Blue Carnegie while Ron Wood s rhythmic pattern seems to be his natural habit.

Godfather presents this recording in their usual trifold sleeve for this which seems to have been the only silver release for this concert, just about time Jimmy Reed s music received   a well deserved tribute..
