Recorded live at the Lone Star Cafe in New York City in 1981, this captures Redbone in top-notch form. The set list is peppered with Redbone staples like an extended version of Blind Blake's "Diddy Wah Diddy" (here incorrectly credited to Willie Dixon), "Shine on Harvest Moon," "Champagne Charlie," and "If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven." A great little document of exactly what Redbone does best: holding an audience spellbound with just his guitar, his enigmatic personality, and songs as old as the hills. Great set of notes from Dave Thompson, but unfortunately, several songs have the wrong writer's credits and two songs are listed in the wrong order on the tray card. Still, with all its packaging flaws, the performance is so first-rate it still comes highly recommended.
