5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Walsh plays the blues! Have mercy! March 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm 50 years old and have been playing guitar most of my life. I've seen most of the great guitarists live. I've seen Hendrix. I've seen Clapton. I've seen Page. I've seen Beck. I've seen Blackmore. I've seen Gibbons. I've seen Freddie and BB King, and freddie made me cry. I've seen the Allmans. I could go on and on. Of all the guitarist performances in the last 35 years, who would I rate as the best? This one! Joe Walsh live with the James Gang at the Overton Park Shell in Memphis Tennessee. I wasn't expecting this. I already knew about Joe Walsh and liked the funky rock style of the James Gang. That was what i was expecting. A cute little polished top 40 pop rock group with a pretty good guitarist/vocalist.Man was I in for a shock! What I saw was Joe Walsh wearing a sunburst Les Paul Standard plugged into Marshall stacks and turned up loud! What I heard was the best played, best sounding electric blues/rock in my life. Hendrix could do it in the studio.....but this man did it live! The high spot was the blues number "You're gonna Need Me." I heard the most tasteful, sweetest, creative blues lead in my life and i still haven't forgotten it. The beautiful sustain and phrasing of Walsh's playing was the most perfect example of power under control that i have ever witnessed. The guitar and the power behind it was a part of the man's soul. For the life of me i don't know why Walsh has downplayed this side of his talent. If you haven't heard this you haven't really heard either Joe Walsh or the James Gang.I have been wanting to express my admiration of this work for many years. I thank Amazon.com for granting me the privelege. If you really love the blues guitar, you owe it to yourself to listen to this offering. You won't hear the blues exactly like this anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Walsh at his best September 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was one of my favorite albums in the mid 1970s. I didn't have the recording for nearly 30 years until I finally found it in a used record shop. (The CD line up and the original record are identical--no new material, sadly.) Even though my taste has changed and I've moved more in the direction of jazz, I was rivoted by Joe Walsh's guitar playing and the tightness of this power trio.

The only disappointment might be the bass solo on "Lost Women," but it was the early 1970s, after all. Besides Jack Bruce, there weren't many electric bass virtuosos, and many of the techiques now taken for granted didn't exist. So, turn up the fuzz and play eighth notes!

As other reviewers have noted, Joe was in a unique grove. He derives the maximum feeling from his playing. He doesn't miss any notes and doesn't waste any notes. His tone and attack are perfect for this genre. His use of special effects--waw waw and echoplex--is perfect: very drammatic and not cloying or cheap (as was often the case at that time). The pure blues number is sweet, hot, and memorable. Joe could get more out of a half a dozen well placed notes than many shredders (such as Malmsteen) do in a hundred.

The drumming by Jim Foxx (I think that's his name) is energetic and driving. His solo on "Lost Woman" does not disappoint.

I wonder if Joe would ever consider tackling his power trio format again... I hope so. He didn't show this piercing side very often.

4.0 out of 5 stars You Had To Be There June 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What happened in Carnegie Hall happened during that 1970 JG tour in College campuses hither and yon, literally note for note. For a Michocan soaked, Beatle weary audience, the naked density of the trio was welcome respite to the baggage and posturing of the Heeps and the Tulls. Belying the banality of the studio work was a hard working, straight ahead crash band, steeped in hooks and solo thrill rides. True enough, they go one bass solo too far, but Walsh stomps through the rushes like a house afire, and plays three leads at a time through most of the guitar pieces. This is not background music for chanting Mantras, this is the CD that measures those speakers once and for all, cause that's the way it was recorded, blowing out eardrums and Shure mic's all over the midwest. Of course it's an edgy master, so putt through the break, and turn the bloody thing up, and you'll be amazed at the results. One note however, this is the one recording that convinced me of what I felt was a myth: LP's do generate better ambiance than CD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars My number 1 favorite album of all time! May 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a musician and a fan of many styles of music for most of my life and when it comes to all-out,kick-butt,blow your hair back rock and roll that you can feel in your bones, I'll reach for this disc, James Gang-Live in Concert. This is Joe Walsh at his absolute zenith! He wasn't one of Pete Townsends favorite guitarist's for nothing! Turn it up LOUD and enjoy it again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Performance October 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"The James Gang Live in Concert" is a tremendous performance by a really great rock trio. I put on my top 20 of all time great "guitar-based live performances." It's right up there with any work the Allmans, the Cream or Jimi did, it's that good. If Joe walsh was "burned-out" on this album, you couldn't prove it by me. The album is an absolute "must listen" for any aspiring or serious guitarist/artist. I have the original LP and it's a monster. For those who trash this record I say, "show me anything in today's market that is even one tenth as good as this." Good luck.
