Album Review

Live and Burning lives up to its billing. Seals' smoking set, caught live at Chicago's long-gone (and definitely lamented) Wise Fools Pub, finds him attacking a sharp cross-section of material — Detroit Junior's deliberate "Call My Job," Elmore James' "I Can't Hold Out," his own "Help Me, Somebody" — with an outstanding band in tow, featuring saxophonist A.C. Reed, guitarist Lacy Gibson, pianist Alberto Gianquinto, bassist Snapper Mitchum, and drummer Tony Gooden.

Customer Reviews

Son Rocks!

I never saw Son Seals in Ames while I was there (Familiar with Maintenance 101!) Caught him at Wise Fools Pub and Biddy Mulligan's in Chicago. This album lets you know why I am a fan!

Live and Burning - Son Seals

Great urban blues by Son Seals and a top notch band. I saw them live about a year before this album came out and Son at this time was a strong singer with distinctive "scrufflin" guitar style - "Hot Sauce" a great example. One of Alligator's better albums but also check out Son's first two albums.

Great Blues A Must Buy!!!!!

If you like down home gritty blues, you'll love this power guitar driven live, fun CD!!!

It all started with a phone call from Wesley Race, who was at the Flamingo Club on Chicago's South Side, to Alligator Records owner Bruce Iglauer. Race was raving about a new find, a young guitarist named Son Seals. He held the phone in the direction of the bandstand, so Iglauer could get an on-site report. It didn't take long for Iglauer to scramble into action. Alligator issued Seals' eponymous debut album in 1973, which was followed by six more. Son Seals was born Frank Seals on August 13, 1942...
