George Thorogood & The Destroyers : Live at Rockpalast
Release Date: December 16, 2016
|Production Companies||:||WDR, Rockpalast|
George Thorogood Live at Rockpalast in 1980 goes from zero to 60 in no time with the opening track, “House Of Blue Lights,” the Chuck Berry classic. “I’m Wanted” has some nice breaks and is as steady as they come. “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” is as lively and interesting as the studio version. It’s a ten-minute romp of hard luck and booze, and Thorogood plays it flawlessly. The second disc features some great slide work and features a nice routine of Elmore James including “Goodbye Baby (Can’t Say Goodbye)” and “New Hawaiian Boogie.” Another song Thorogood is well known for covering is “Who Do You Love?” and he plays this Bo Diddley standard with all the attitude of a rattlesnake on a bad day. Classic stuff.
