Album Review

Still slogging it out in the jam band asylum, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, like Blues Traveler, had that one uncharacteristic big hit ("Bittersweet") that gave them a taste of the big time, but didn't allow them to keep basking in its glory. That said, the band has a loyal following that's large enough to warrant it playing San Francisco's Fillmore Auditorium . This live double-disc set is drawn from two evenings of performances at the fabled venue. The trio of Todd Park Mohr, Rob Squires, and Brian Nevin is augmented by keyboardist Jeremy Lawton, percussionist Gary Greene and backing vocalist Hazel Miller. Sonically this joint rules! It's loud, proud, and full of a righteous raw ambience. The material ranges from across the band's studio catalog but the majority of tracks are taken from the band's last album, Crimes of Passion, with six from Sister Sweetly — among them "Bittersweet," and "Broken Hearted Savior." There are also cuts from Riviera and Beautiful World to round out the package. These performances are edgy, overdriven, and the true measure of what the Monsters are like as a live band. If they've been cleaned up, they don't feel like it, and the sheer raucousness of the presentation, even on the softer material, gives it a freshness and immediacy that is sorely lacking in other live albums. Recommended.

Customer Reviews

Big Head Todd fans will love this one!

Big Head Todd is known for their live performances. Like Widespread Panic, they seem to change songs up enough to keep them interesting for a longer time. This CD doesn't disappont. It is also available as a DVD, which I also own. My favorite BHTM song, It's Alright, is done to perfection. If you're a fan of their music, or soulful/bluesy rock in general, this is a must own for your collection.

One of the best live albums around. It's great!

The Fillmore Rocks with BHTM

Saw the band at the Fillmore just a few months ago. (3/13) Todd Park Mohr and the boys have still got it. Great song writing skills and versatile playing. They come in under the radar but have stayed true to the profession and their following fans for years. I put them at the top of the Jam Band rockers.

During the late '80s and early '90s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters (the Colorado-based trio of guitarist/keyboard player Todd Park Mohr, bassist Rob Squires, and drummer Brian Nevin) built their audience through constant touring, playing college towns across the country. With these tours, they built a solid fan base before they had even signed to a major label. Although they released a number of records, they weren't quite able to transfer the live appeal of their laid-back, slightly jazzy blues-based...
