That being said this is a very good album. It is still a lot of fun to sing along with all the old songs and know that some things can handle a little change. Do they miss Chuck? I don't think there is any evidence of it here, but for a full update on whatever happened to....Check out Chuck's new double live set. Also know that Michael Alsup also has a solo album available.
Check out the DVD of Three Dog Night live in 2000.
My suggestion: if you want the REAL TDN sound, Captured Live at the Forum should be your choice or TDN Greatest hits live. Better yet, check out some of Negron's recordings. He sounds more like TDN then Cory and Danny do.
"With The London Symphony Orchestra", Three Dog Night shows off it's longevity with hot new arrangements of their million selling hits while not straying to far from the original feel of those timeless songs. The powerful orchestra augments these songs with a new freshness that many of the albums recorded with this concept don't come close to.
Cory Wells and Danny Hutton's vocals are incredible and if anything have gotten stronger and are packed with the passion of the early recordings. Their interpretations of the songs Chuck Negron sang are shining on this recording and they give these songs a new energy that makes them feel brand new.
The band is white hot here with the new technology streaming through the arrangements. Michael Allsup's guitar solos on "Liar" and "Never Been To Spain" are powerful enough, and Jimmy Greenspoons keyboard and B-3 playing are so emotional, but when you add a 100 piece orchestra to the mix it makes the hair stand up on your neck. The rhythm section of Paul Kingerly on bass and Pat Bautz on drums are like a wall of bumping and pumping that give these songs a new millennium kick in the ass.
The bonus in this package are the first new Three Dog Night songs in almost twenty years. "Sault Ste. Marie" written by newcomer Kevin Bowe is a very new kind of alternative acoustic country song that evokes the feel of Ryan Adams and Wilco. The hook is beautiful and it still shows the uncanny touch Wells and Hutton have for picking great songs by up and coming artists. The second track "Overground" is another song that feels new with a retro feel and both songs could easily be played on any Adult Contempory or Triple A radio station today.
"With The London Symphony Orchestra" was produced by longtime Three Dog Night boardsman, Richard Podolor at American Recording Company in Calabasas, CA and the London Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Larry Baird and recorded at legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, England. This new album and I mean this is a NEW album is a great step into the new millennium. Here's hoping everybody jumps back aboard the Three Dog Night bandwagon. Hey man, I never got off.
