It has a very clean and crisp sound.

Especially noteworthy is lead guitarist/vocalist Pete Haycock's fearless and brilliant performance.
J. Byler
This lovable, dumpy old venue (which later became the Palladium) hosted many, many great bands.

This is one of the best albums/CDs of all time, bar none. I've gone through 3 album sets and am now on my first CD version of FM Live. Climax Blues Band was one of those bands which were infinitely better "live" than on vinyl, and this CD captures them at their best. Both rockin and bluesy and funky, these guys were hot on the concert circuit in the 70s. They were one of those bands that headliners didn't like because the CBB would blow their doors out on stage. The final songs on the CD, beginning from "Country Hat," an excellent slide guiter solo/song/piece, to the end is one of the rockinest group of songs EVER put together. I STILL get that rush one gets from hearing a good jam for the first time everytime I crank this CD up and go for a cruise.

The Esoteric label has finally gotten around to reissuing this great example (in a slipcase) of how this band (recorded in 1973, in New York City for radio broadcast) sounded live, in their hey-day. The mastering and sound are very good-on a par with other recent reissues of the band's earlier albums. This CD is packed with music that really proves that this band should have been more well known. The booklet has an essay on the music and a few small photos of the band.

Plus, the complete (9 1/2 minutes) version of "Goin' To New York" is included for the first time. That tune (by blues great Jimmy Reed), along with "So Many Roads" (hear blues guitarist Otis Rush's version-its killer), a storming Haycock solo "Country Hat", "Flight", "Mesopopmania" (with its sax/guitar intro which shifts into a duel guitar sound) "Let's Work Together", and other tunes are fine examples of just how good the band was live. I still remember how blown away I was hearing just how tight and fierce this band was on stage. And to have a double album of such great music was something really exciting. Listening to this set you can hear just how tight this band was on stage-no sloppy playing or wasted notes-they just got up there and threw out one blistering performance after another. Even the slower tunes have an intensity to them.

Fans should probably pick this edition of "FM Live" up for the above reasons. If you're new to this band, check out their first, self-titled album, and the second album "Plays On" (both newly mastered) for a good idea of what they were capable of. If you like those, check out the next couple of albums for similarly good tunes.

Just wanted to mention that the remastering on this CD is outstanding.

The vocals that were originally a bit too harsh have been smoothed out. - If you know this music, you know the parts - on "Standing By A river" - the vocals are much better now.

And the guitar and sax sound much more defined and separated.

No bonus material, same concert. But, it's worth the price to hear the concert with the improved sound.

I've played this CD more than I thought I would.

Outstanding concert tape, finally on CD available. This is a must for everoney who enjoys genuine music by a real band, who could write their own material and added some songs from others but played it their own way. This is fine example of a true band, at the height of their time. This is a ONE concert-recording, not being plucked from many performances and/or with many studio-overdubs. Listen to what this band could manage. The way they handled their instruments but more the interplay by the 4 members (on vocals/sax/harmonica, vocals/leadguitar, bassguitar and drums), every song recorded in only one take. Amazing. The music varies from straight blues to pop and (prog-)rock. It has so much to offer, everything on a good level. Those guys knew how to rock. Vocals are fine, guitarplaying excellent, rythmsection fills in and gives an added touch. Even the sax plays a role on its own. "Country Hat" is a solo only-number, on slide-guitar and sets Peter Haycock apart from so many other guitarists. Listen how this song developes from slow blues to full speed slide-play. And how it becomes immediately an integral part of the following up "You Make Me Sick". On every song he shows you what a guitarplayer he used to be, making his music a part of the song in a way you cannot describe, interwoven with the other instruments. What amazes you is that this IS a live recording, recorded in one take, no frills, overdubs, tricks etc. It gives you a sight of how real music was played. Even for the midseventies this is for real. Strongly recommended! Five stars is to less.

This album was recorded live at New York's Academy of Music for broadcast on FM radio (hence the title). The rough and rowdy mixture of live blues rock proves to be a winner in front of an ethusiastic and appreciative audience. An interesting aspect of the Climax Blues Band for newcomers is the fact that Colin Cooper plays saxophone, harmonica and guitar as well as handling most of the vocals. The music ranges from inspired blues covers like "The Seventh Son", the emotional "So Many Roads, So Many Trains" and the raucous closers Jimmy Reed's "Goin' To New York" and Wilbert Harrison's "Let's Work Together". Tracks like "Flight" showcase the band's more jazzy side while "Mesopopmania" provides a vehicle for John Cuffely's drum soloing. The real highlight of the set is the great blues/rock guitar playing of Peter Haycock (later of ELO). "County Hat" highlights Haycock's wicked slide playing. The audience is obviously having a good time based on the versions of "You Make Me Sick" and "Shake Your Love" included here. While all the notes may not be perfect but the intensity does not waver. This live disk is the next best thing to being there which is what any live disk should strive to be!
