Charlie Daniels Band 1978 Volunteer Jam III & IV

If you never saw the Charlie Daniels Band live in earlier days, or have only heard studio cuts, this is a must have album. It features some great live CDB cuts from the Saddle Tramp era, with the fat slide guitar of "Sweet Louisiana" and the furious guitar/fiddle finale on "Cumberland Mountain Number Nine" being my personal favorites. The 5 live CDB cuts show how great a musical tandem Charlie and Tommy Crain really were.
Side III features a top notch Willie Nelson set that is also very nice. Other highlights are Toy Caldwell's "Can't You See," then Allman Brothers pianist Chuck Leavell's jazz side project Sea Level plays a hot "Statesboro Blues" with Charlie on guest guitar. Wet Willie's "Street Corner Serenade" is a delightful vocal foray and a fun listen. "Sang Her Love Songs" by the long-forgotten Winter Brothers Band supported by then CDB members Taz DiGregorio and Don Murray, is beautifully played and comes in at a not too lengthy 8 minutes.
Its a forgotten gem of a record for my money. For fans of live music its a terrific blend of Southern rock, country, jazzy blues, and even some rockin' gospel during the show's finale. Wonderful music that has sadly gone largely unheard. (R. Demirjian "Rick D")
