A huge Chuck Brown fan, one of my biggest complaints is that he's never really managed to capture his live sound (as good as I would like to hear it) on CD... a lot of his CDs just have excerpts of his grooves, you don't get to hear that band of his going off, soloing around the clock and the true concept of go go. I guess it doesn't translate well because the very concept of go go is something you just can't take into a studio or mix down into a 4 minute radio friendly hit track... its non-stop party music...Chuck Brown is the master of ceremonies... the congas sizzle, the drum beats go on NON-STOP as the band segues from groove to groove. The horns might lay out, but the congas never stop... Chuck may rap... and next thing you know, the horns are firing up the groove... lot's of surprizes and the energy builds til you can't take it no more... Talk about "soul injections" - - its a religious experience ! Well I'll tell you this, while I was afraid for the first few minutes of the CD it was going to be yet another rehash of an older CD... by the time Chameleon hit, I was thinking, daaaaaaaaaaaag - - no need for the WIND ME UP, CHUCK chant... Chuck was beyond WINDING 'em up... he was kicking, thrusting, spinning, pulverizing, spittin' 'em out and gettin' his groove on to boot.
Some folks may mellow with age... Chuck gets harder and harder... the formula is his and his alone... this CD just happens to sound better than many of his others... there's one great reason... finally, they let him do his thing... and considering that Chuck can take ANYBODY's song and make it his own, that's a DANGEROUS thing... by the way, if 2001 (That'll Work) don't make you wet your pants... ya ain't got no bladder !

If you don't know Chuck, buy this live one, and dig the audience feedback.

Did do too much for me. Disappointed with this CD. I am not a native Washingtonian so perhaps that is why I only liked a very small percentage of the songs.

I'm a big fan of Chuck Brown over 35 Years. I used to go and see other go go bands and record a lot of there songs on a small cassette's recorder.

I love this CD. The 9:30 allows you to get up close and personal with the artist and this CD captures the one and only Chuck Brown. Oh how I love the sound of DC's Go Go. The beat is unmistakable.
