REVIEW:

This new release brings back the double bill in  Amsterdam in mid-March 2008 when Chuck Berry's European Tour had as opening set, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings who were joined for the occasion by former Stones fellow member Mick Taylor. This release documents all that happened that night starting with the Rhythm Kings set that has abandoned any Berry song that was later played by the master himself (notably "You Never Can Tell" that is often sung by Wyman himself). The Rhythm Kings old time Rock and Roll set opens with "Show Me" that is followed by Louis Prima's "Jump, Jive And Wail" before Little Walter's "Too Late". Lots of Boogie, Cajun and Rockabilly tunes mark the Rhythm Kings setlist with all uptempo songs until Taylor steps in and plays with the band one of his live trademark songs, Orville Wright's "Fed Up With The Blues" that is introduced as a song older than both Bill and Chuck. It is followed by his version of "No Expectations" from Beggars Banquet, a song he hardly played with the band when he was in (Nicaragua Benefit concert in L.A. 73 is the only recorded attempt). The last three songs are The Coaster's "That's Rock And Roll" that showcases Albert Lee's guitar prowess and Screaming Jay Hawkins "I Put A Spell On You" with Beverly Skeete vocals in evidence before the final R.Kings bow with Billy Burnette "Tear It Up". Then it is Chuck Berry's turn to close the show, the old rocker plays his great songs somehow slower but still pleases his audience in spite of the inevitable mix up of some lyrics. He is followed by a respectful trained back up band that features his son on guitar too.The last song starts as an instrumental with all the characteristic Berry licks and turns into a crowd pleaser that aptly end this concert; this recording is very good, well balanced and this release could probably have been on silver disc as well.
