5.0 out of 5 stars No 'probably' about it- This is Frank's best live album, April 4, 2005
By 
This review is from: Roxy & Elsewhere (Audio CD)
The title of my review says it all: this is Frank's best live album and it just so happens to be my personal favorite in his entire catalog.

Simply put- I believe that this is the finest band Frank ever assembled. Napoleon Murphy Brock in particular adds so much to the lineup that it's amazing he wasn't a star on his own. Between his incredible energy, great vocals and superb sax work- the man literally steals the show from Frank.

Combine Brock with a handful of other supremely tallented musicians (Ruth Underwood on percussion will leave your jaw on the floor on more than one occasion) and you'll know why Frank regarded this group so highly. Oh, and Frank is no slouch either- his guitar tone on "Penguin in Bondage" must be heard to be believed.

-The group is stunning.

-The songs are among Frank's best.

-The recording sounds flawless.

There is no reason not to own this album. If you're new to Frank- this is a great place to start (as is Hot Rats). If you've heard some of his stuff and are looking for more- look no further. A genuinely fun album to listen to that contains music that will blow you away everytime you listen to it.
