Savoy Brown 1985 Live In Central Park

I believe it was 1970 when Savoy Brown headlined a tripple bill tour including Fleetwood Mac and Long John Baldry. Long John Baldry opened the show with the now classic English style blues/rock, Fleetwood Mac put the audience to sleep and Savoy Brown blew the house away and demonstrated that rock can be fun. They were there for a party and everyone was welcome. I filled my youth attending the classic rock bands from the 60's and 70's and can not remember a band that appeared to have more fun on stage.
As I update my music retrospect it is hard to find albums that capture not only the music but the experience. This album does both better than any live album I own. Let it Rock and Hip Shake are classic rockers streched to allow for the trademark long guitar and keyboard solos of the late 60's and these ones hold up today. Tell Moma covers their limited commercial success and The Saddest Feeling has grown to be one of my favorite blues stylings. The CD jacket says it all, voted best concert that year and references to their emphisis on making rock a party.
This album should appeal to those who are seeking a slice of how good it could get in those early years of rock concerts and those with studio Savoy Brown albums that would like a sense of the onstage personna of the band. Rock lives on in this CD. (mark)
