This is an awesome collection of electric blues. Some reviewers rate this behind Seals' "Spontaneous Combustion", but I prefer this one. S.C. is also solid, but "Live & Burning" is a little more "raw". Great cuts thoughout, and a really good mix. One of my favorite blues CDs - and I have a LOT of blues CDs.

Can you say INTENSE? Probably the most accurate title for a recording ever. It captures Son at the peak of his power. The guitar bites and claws, the vocals, gruff and in your face, are sung with a conviction rarely, if ever, matched in the blues genre. The rest of the band is tight and in the groove.The emotion jumps at you from the speakers. A huge plus is this recording is made the way a live blues record should be made. The mix isn't perfect, the mistakes and feedback are left in, the crowd noise is left in. It IS however, the closest thing to being in a smoky, crowded blues club that you will find on CD. A must buy!!!

Son Seals is really one of the titans of the current blues scene who should be spoken of in the same conversation as BB King, Buddy Guy, and Ronnie Earl. Of the many albums I have, this is one of the best, Son with his own band burning it up in a club full of real blues lovers. Although the set here features several covers (Son is one of the great composers, as you'll learn on subsequent albums), they are delivered in quite personal, intense renditions (esp. Litle Walter's "Last Night") that show that Son picked up the best from watching the legends who used to play his father's Arkansas club in the 1950's. This is one of the gems on the Alligator label, so by all means buy it along with the others he has in the catalog. His vocals have grit, and his guitar is like a nasty fusion of BB, Albert (King), and Hubert Sumlin. And see Son when he plays near you.

This is the best live blues album -- and one of the best blues albums -- you will ever hear. (Note its recording history in the book "Deep Blues.") Raw, uninhibited, a glimpse of Son Seals as he sounds in a crowded club. Seals picks up where Muddy left off in Chicago, without any of the post-modern bull. Back in the day I had friends who ran a record shop. Each time they put this one on the turntable they would sell out the stock.

I give this CD 4 stars instead of 5 only because I like Seals' Spontaneous Combustion a bit better, and, for me, this genre is epitomized by Luther Allison. Son Seals, however, runs a close second for me ... a real, working bluesman ... a practitioner of true art. This album truly captures the feel of a live club performance. If you've never heard the blues played Chicago style, in an intimate, smoky club, this CD and Seals' Spontaneous Combustion capture the feel as well as anything I've heard. The vocals are, of course, soulful, and the guitar work superb. This man *lives* his music, and it shows.

I have a problem with Alligator Records. The over-produced sameness and glossy slickness of the stuff they did for Son Seals' studio albums is in direct contradiction to the rawness of his basic style. This album, however, shows it the way it should be...warts and all.

Son's guitar playing and singing are direct and powerfull (ie: raw and aggressive). This album shows him doing what he did best: kicking out hard, ripping bar blues. The song "Funky Bitch" is worth the price of the album on its own. His other live album "Spontaneous Combustion" is great too, but "Live and Burning" kicks its butt, steals its wallet, and dumps it in the alley.

If you like a lot of slick, Hollywood horn arrangements and syrupy production look elsewhere, but if you want to hear what it sounds like listening to a killing machine tear the house apart.... THIS is the album for you.

So glad I bought this. It is a must have if you want to collect top notch, live Chicago blues performances in your collection. Son is at the top of his game with his passionate vocals and gritty and funky guitar licks. Crack open a beer and crank up the volume. Sound quality is very good (which is usually my biggest concern of any live album) so you won't be disappointed. Son might not get the run that some other icons do but he is definitely a blues all-star and should be mentioned in the same breath with all the greats. Buy this disc and "The Son Seals Blues Band" album (with its cool cover) and you have filled your minimum duty to have Son represented in your blues collection.
