REVIEW:

This release presents Bill Wyman s Rhythm Kings first 1997 Hamburg concert.   It was a great show, which has been recorded on this splendid release; all lovers of original rock and roll, rhythm and blues and soul do love the Rhythm Kings for their special blend of music that can be appreciated in full here, they were in practice a large rock n roll group playing vintage tunes as far as possible akin to the original versions, however adding a kind of   personal touch that especially live provided great fun, also thanks to the many great musicians involved. Sound wise the recording is excellent with Wyman s bass well upfront; particularly good is Peter Frampton playing whose work on Mystery Train is remarkable. Not many people know that Peter Frampton friendship with Wyman dates to the early 60s, when Bill Wyman was his neighbor in London and that Bill used to take him to London clubs, having however promised Peter s parents that the boy would be home by 23.00, hence Frampton used to leave the club to catch the latest available train to go back home in time. For long time unavailable, this concert was the opening one of the band s 1997 mini European Tour to promote the Strutting Your Stuff cd that was released just 4 days before this concert; in fact they performed the whole album live with the exception of Going Crazy Overnight. The band would also play a couple of shows at the Paradiso Club in Amsterdam ending the tour in London on October 15th; allegedly this is what Wyman always aimed at in his last years with the Stones, a quick and brief tour and maybe this is one of the reasons why he decided to leave them.
