AMG Review by Michael B. Smith
Hot on the heels of Volume I, Blue Hat Records has released Volunteer Jam: Classic Live Performances: Volume II, another fine collection of great music taken from the archives of past Volunteer Jams.
The set opens with Wet Willie tearing it up with "Street Corner Serenade" and moves full speed ahead, locomotive-like, into the Charlie Daniels Band's "Trudy": two subtle reminders that these are the very best performances available from the classic Volunteer Jams. Dobie Gray pulls off a stellar rendition of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," and Jimmy Hall leaves Wet Willie behind to jam with the L.A. Reflection Section, rocking through the Jackie Wilson hit "Higher and Higher" with all the soul and passion you'd expect from Hall. Next up is one of the unusual parings that has helped to make the Volunteer Jams such special events. Ted Nugent joins the Charlie Daniels Band and the L.A. Reflection Section to rock & roll through "Oh, Carol." Louisiana's Leroux perform their biggest hit, "New Orleans Ladies," and Willie Nelson cranks out the immortal "Good Hearted Woman" at breakneck speed. Delbert McClinton brings the funk back out onto the stage with "Standing on Shaky Ground," and the set closes out with "Do the Funky Chicken" featuring Rufus Thomas, the CDB, Al Kooper and the L.A. Reflection Section.
With a vault full of these timeless recordings, we can only hope that Charlie Daniels and Blue Hat will see fit to release even more as time goes on.
