Great Live British Blues Rock!
J. E FELL | Carterville, Illinois United States | 01/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was recorded live at New York's Academy of Music for broadcast on FM radio (hence the title). The rough and rowdy mixture of live blues rock proves to be a winner in front of an ethusiastic and appreciative audience. An interesting aspect of the Climax Blues Band for newcomers is the fact that Colin Cooper plays saxophone, harmonica and guitar as well as handling most of the vocals. The music ranges from inspired blues covers like "The Seventh Son", the emotional "So Many Roads, So Many Trains" and the raucous closers Jimmy Reed's "Goin' To New York" and Wilbert Harrison's "Let's Work Together". Tracks like "Flight" showcase the band's more jazzy side while "Mesopopmania" provides a vehicle for John Cuffely's drum soloing. The real highlight of the set is the great blues/rock guitar playing of Peter Haycock (later of ELO). "County Hat" highlights Haycock's wicked slide playing. The audience is obviously having a good time based on the versions of "You Make Me Sick" and "Shake Your Love" included here. While all the notes may not be perfect but the intensity does not waver. This live disk is the next best thing to being there which is what any live disk should strive to be!"

"Having been at this concert, recorded live in New York at the Academy of Music, I was expecting the recorded version to be a let down. Surprise...It's one of the better live recordings you will hear. With original guitarist (Pete Haycock) the Climax Bles Band rocked the roof off the place and this recording has it all! BUY THIS ONE!!!!!"
Drop the top and crank the volume!

"I saw these guys in the seventies as the warm-up band for Canned Heat in Seattle. After Climax Blues played, Canned Heat got booed. My two favorite songs on here are "All the Time in the World," and "Going to New York." Those two songs alone are worth the price of the album."
