REVIEW:

This release presents Bill Wyman s Rhythm Kings 1998 Cologne concert.   It was a great show, but the recording sound was saturated in the bass frequencies. So a bass filter was used and the high frequencies increased a little bit; also some digital noises at the beginning of Motorvatin Mama have been deleted too.

The line-up consisted of Bill Wyman on bass and vocals, Gary Brooker on piano and vocals, Georgie Fame  on organ and vocals, Martin Taylor on guitar, Albert Lee on guitar and bass, Graham Broad on drums, Beverley Skeete on vocals, Frank Mead  on alto sax, flute, harmonica, Nick Payn on tenor sax, flute, harmonica, Melanie Redmond and Keeley Smith on backing vocals, it is important to notice the contribution of jazz guitarist Martin Taylor, particularly on numbers like Spooky and Walking One And Only. where his jazz tinged solos are real highlights . The 1998 Rhythm Kings Tour lasted a bit more than the 1997 one and was done to promote the cd Anyway The Wind Blows released in late September of that year. This recording is good especially after having been reworked, again Bill s bass drives the sound   which is excellent, but for the few initial seconds when it was too low. Ring My Bell is another Bill Wyman/Terry Taylor composition, while Rockin  Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu will from this show end up on Bootleg Kings Live in Europe released in 2000.

It is quite funny that on the Band Introduction Gary Brooker calls Bill Wyman Our Fuehrer, correcting himself after getting booed and then Bill becomes Our Leader!
