Album Review

This album chronicles a Dave Mason performance in Washington, D.C., in May 2003, backed by a full band and thus able to do justice to some of his greatest hits, including "Only You Know and I Know," "We Just Disagree," and "Feelin' Alright." At 59, Mason remains in good voice and has a certain perspective on his long career, though he marvels that "Feelin' Alright" has turned out to be such a perennial favorite. He has also taken to incorporating songs that he himself did not write or sing lead on originally, but that he had some involvement with, such as "Dear Mr. Fantasy" (he was a member of Traffic when the song was recorded) and "All Along the Watchtower" (he played guitar on Jimi Hendrix's cover version). For this "deluxe edition", Mason adds as bonus tracks another couple of such cover songs, including another Traffic number, "40,000 Headmen" (a studio recording made with Traffic alumnus Jim Capaldi shortly before Capaldi's death), and the Eagles' "Take It to the Limit" (to which he has no apparent connection, although it was recorded live in the Eagles' stomping grounds of Orange County, CA). An extra treat is a studio recording of a new Dave Mason song, "Deaf, Dumb and Blind," perhaps prefacing a long-overdue new studio album.

Customer Reviews

Holy smokes.

Dave sounds great....fresh...gritty...and inspired....man I love this. Rock on brother.

Dave Mason Still Rocks

While browsing through the iTunes catalog I saw in the "What Others Bought" prompt, Dave Mason. Clicked on Dave and there was a Live At XM Radio recording. I have XM, they do a great job of Live presentations. This performance is KILLER!!!! I can close my eyes, listen and I'm back in 68 groovin'. As I titled above, Dave still rocks big time and in great voice. Only complaint I could have is it should have been twice as long.

Perfect Live Performance!

There may be no better album by Dave Mason; I know there could be no better live album. He and his band are so tight that... well, no simile can do them justice. I bought this album during his concert last year (2007) in my hometown, and I am going next month to see him again. What happened to him between his monster hits of the early seventies and now, I'll never know (it seems he spent twenty years in wee hours infomercial-land), but who cares? He is back with a vengeance, and edgier than ever.
