4.0 out of 5 stars I Hope You Were There- - -If Not, It Was Great!!! July 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was very fortunate to catch this incarnation of Savoy Brown---number #837 if memory serves me correct---in February of last year at Poor David's Pub, Dallas, Texas. Smallish crowd, but an incredible performance. This was arguably Kim's greatest version of SB since the Looking In years. Sadly, second guitarist and former Shania Twain bandleader David Malachowski has recently announced his departure; he will be sorely missed. Not to worry, the remaining trio of Garry Sorrentino, bass; Dennis Cotton, drummer, vendor of SB's fine souvenir line and all around genial guy; and of course Kim Simmonds, singer and guitarist extraordinaire, will carry on Savoy Brown as a trio. All are in fine form on the Canadian dates recorded on this tour. "When it Rains," the highlight from 2003's "comeback" album, Strange Dreams, makes a great, rockin' opening number. However, jamming is the bread and butter of this band live and "Where Has Your Heart Gone" and "Blues Like Midnight" are two hardcore blues-rock jams of excellence, the latter actually coming from Kim's solo album of the same name. Similarly, the SB classics are each stretched out to 10+ minutes: "Poor Girl" (from the aforementioned "Looking In" collection) is particularly outstanding with it's Simmonds/Malachowski guitar duel. Sorrentino and Cotton combine to spice up the title track from Street Corner Talkin', while the entire foursome shine on the ubiquitous "Hellbound Train", which is a standout feature of every SB concert. Marvelous!! So get this great disc today, whether you were there or not, and enjoy an hour plus of Savoy Brown's finest in concert!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best Live CD August 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This decade has been a good one for Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown. Their 2003 disc, STRANGE DREAMS was one of the best studio efforts from SB in years, and now they follow it up with this live set, recorded in Canada for the CBC. From the new number, Where Has Your Heart Gone, to the old stuff like Poor Girl and Hellbound Train, Simmonds and crew are sharp, tight and amazing! I hope this lineup sticks around for a few years. Just a great effort all the way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like being there April 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have owned this cd for a year. I saw them live on this tour and this cd is as good as it gets if you can't see em live. The band is tight and the playing excellent. I don't have the track listing available right now but all of the songs sound good. I wish it was a double cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Savoy Brown at its current BEST!!!!!! March 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Saw them in Mill Valley, Ca two yrs ago!! I have seen this band at least 10 times, starting at the Fillmore SF in 1968 with various band lineups--Kim has a good band --his best since the Foghat lineup days. The album is recorded well and sounds great --the only problem it should be longer. Get this album--you will not be disappointed. Blues-rock at its best!!!!!!
