4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere Over The Rainbow... September 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Billy Thorpe is an artist that has worn many hats over the years, from pre-Beatles Australian pop idol to sci-fi concept album trailblazer. However, his most fondly-remembered period by the majority of his fans in Australia is from 1968 to 1975, where Thorpie and the Aztecs were the loudest blues-rock band in the country, and would have given the likes of Ten Years After and the Jeff Beck Group a run for their money if their star could have shone overseas. While the original material produced by the band only rarely managed to shine, the sheer power of the band and their devotion to the blues endeared them to a wide audience and inspired a new generation of Australian bands, such as AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, that would make a deep impact overseas.

Live At Sunbury captures the spirit of the band perfectly, with a mixture of classic blues and rock 'n roll covers and original songs obviously performed very loud but with a lot of care. The set includes a preview of Thorpe's most remembered single, "Most People I Know (Think That I'm Crazy)", which was released shortly after this performance. Strong performances of B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby", Gene Vincent's "Be Bop A Lula", and the original song "Time To Live" are other standouts on this record.

The Aztecs at this stage of their career were an extremely tight band, having honed their act playing three sets a night, five nights a week around the clubs of Melbourne. The sound of the band reminds me most of Deep Purple's Scandanavian Nights album, but without the overlong jams. Overall, this is a very strong album, perhaps not the best live album ever but certainly a major milestone in Australian rock. Take the plunge.
