Album Review

A year after Some Girls, Keith Richard and Ron Wood set out on a brief, ramshackle tour as the New Barbarians, supported by Stanley Clark on bass, Ian McLaughlin and Bobby Keys. This was brief but legendary, since it could be romanticized as the Stones' Id unhinged — the two hardest partiers in the band, out on their own, rampaging and pillaging, drinking and drugging, running wild. Apart from a single that was kind of released, but not really, there were no official recordings, but plenty of bootlegs circulated over the years, with no official release of the live material until 2006's Buried Alive: Live in Maryland appeared. This performance has circulated before, but never in such clear fidelity, or in such careful packaging, which is why this is worthwhile for those who already have the boots. But this is really for listeners (aka Stones fans) who have heard the legend of the New Barbarians, but not the band itself. And they'll find that the show may not quite be legendary, but it's sure a hell of a lot of fun. It's a little bit tighter than the band's reputation might suggest — Richard and Wood may be a little ragged, but they're anchored by the rest of the band, which doesn't give this the sense of being a careening, glorious mess. And if Wood actually sings more than Richard, there's also little question who the real star is: whenever Keef steps to the mic, he pushes Wood to the side, and the encores are almost all his. But leadership doesn't quite matter here, since this is at its core just a guy's night out — that the guys are pros means this isn't as loose as the Replacements, but it also means that they're tight enough to pull off an entertaining show while still seeming a bit wild. It's not quite a lost classic, then, but it's surely a great time and it's hard to imagine anybody who wants to hear this being disappointed by this two-disc set.


Formed: 1979

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s

The roots of the New Barbarians lie in Ron Wood's need to have a backing band for the supporting tour of his 1974 debut I've Got My Own Album to Do. He played a gig in Kilburn supported by his Faces bandmate keyboardist Ian McLagan, and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, filling out the lineup with bassist Willie Weeks and drummer Andy Newmark. Five years later, he had another album under his belt -- 1975's Now Look -- and had become a member of the Rolling Stones, so when he released Gimme...
