Album Review

The first question one has to ask upon even gazing at the album sleeve of Paul Rodgers' Live in Glasgow in 2006 is, of course, has he still got it? That's like asking if Bob Dylan still has it, or Jimmy Page or Brian May or Ian Hunter. Hell yes he does! Recorded on the final night of a European tour, Rodgers and his bandmates, guitarists Howard Leese and Kurtis Dengler, bassist Lynn Sorensen and drummer Ryan Hoyle, lay down a tough, big sounding set of classics and more recent songs — including one new one — from his entire career and give them life, breath and fire again. We haven't heard live guitars sound like this in a long time, probably since the early '80s, nor have we heard blues-based hard rock in this way since the Cult's Electric album. Impeccably recorded — both audio discs and DVD — Rodgers and crew rip through "The Stealer," "Bad Company," "All Right Now," Muddy Waters' "Louisiana Blues," "Feel Like Makin' Love," "Can't Get Enough," "The Hunter," and "Warboys (A Prayer for Peace)" with fire, intensity and plenty of feeling. The guitarists are not slouches or merely hired guns, they know the music and more importantly, they know the artist. "Warboys," begins acoustically and turns into a dual guitar freak-out, lending an air of chaos to the proceedings, but not too much. The early songs all sound fresh and hungry, and the band supports Rodgers as if he were the greatest rock singer on earth (and he just might be) and pushes him hard to deliver.

Good show

Just so's you know, one of the two guitarists in Rodgers' band for this 2002 gig was the legendary Howard Leese of Heart. Also on stage with Paul: Kurtis Dengler: guitar; Lynn Sorensen: bass; Ryan Hoyle: drums. Recorded October 13, 2002 at Glasgow Civic Auditorium, Scotland. (I have to say, one of iTunes' most disappointing drawbacks is the utter lack of recording information for the great majority of relaeases. Some of us like to know this kind of stuff.)

There's lots of talent and potential here.

Now here's a guy that puts it all into a performance. Paul Rodgers, who now sings along with Queen, has a very interesting voice. It's got nice quality, with a touch of Bruce Springsteen-like raspyness to it. Now not all of these songs are great and the truth is, Paul Rodgers was never really that popular. He was first in Free and then started Bad Company, and currently tours with the remaining two members of Queen. His hits consisted of "All Right Now," "Wishing Well," "Bad Company," "Seagull," and "Feel Like Makin' Love." He puts a ton of vocal power into his work and gets the crowd alive. He's full of energy and overall seems like a nice guy. Even the unfamiliar songs are fun to hear, due to his nice voice. This is a pretty good deal, when it comes to the price and quality. If you're a fan, then go for it, but if you're just a casual listener, then go with the highlights. Very well done.

Wow

Oh my God is this a great album! I haven't enjoyed a album this much in years.
