I didn’t listen to the bonus disc except for the bonus tracks that matched up with the first show. It’s a pretty good collection. The version of “The Other One” on disc 2 is very long. Also, we get one of the more exciting “Sugar Magnolia” performances of 1971. Not much Pigpen on here though. Probably deserves some repeat listens as far as 1971 goes.
It’s mostly just vocals and acoustic guitar, but there’s some other light instrumentation in some songs. Vocals seem to have something on them. Looping or reverb? Or both? Anyway, people loved this album. I guess it’s pretty. But it doesn’t ever grab me. I’m just not into this kind of singing.
This album really isn’t that bad. Stewart looks ridiculous in the album cover, and “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Man” is dumb, but the rest of the songs really aren’t bad at all. It rocks a lot more than previous albums. Sure, it isn’t as good as Every Picture Tells a Story, but few albums are. I’m sure this is way better than a lot of the albums that came after.
It’s not bad, but it doesn’t really do that much for me. The more I listen to those old Ike and Tina Turner albums, the more I start to wonder if they were really that awesome. They released a lot of albums though. Maybe too many. Anyway, this is a short album. Not a bad place to go if I want some decent soul/rock.
A good album. The best song is a Ronnie Self song. The songs are all fairly short. Not many stand out beyond the title track, but I always enjoy them just fine. But it does lack stand out songs when compared to the other albums.
This one isn’t my favorite. “You Wear It Well” is an awesome song, but it’s still the only one that stands out to me. It’s also one of his shortest albums coming in at about 32 minutes. Just doesn’t feel as ambitious as Every Picture Tells a Story. But none of them do really.
This one’s pretty good. Shows some development and added texture while still rocking. Alexis liked the weird instrumental. I liked most of it. It’s not as good as the first 2 albums, but it shows some growth. Still rocks, just not as hard.
