CD Reviews

Excellent live Hound Dog!
David Haile | Ft. Collins, CO USA | 07/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have the Hound Dog Tribute CD (Hound Dog songs, other artists) and the original Alligator recording (1971). This CD outshines both and I highly recommend it. The recording makes you feel like you are in the bar with them. If you listen closely, you can hear Brewer Phillips' amplifier crackling. Bar patrons talk to them between songs, though I wish they had just left the tape running. The band has a lot of energy, though I sure wish they would tune together once in a while. If you only get one Hound Dog CD, definitely get this one."
Sounds like the band is in slow motion

"Recorded live, almost every song is a beat or two slower than it should be. Impact and pace is much better on the studio recordings and even with the other live recording on the Alligator label. If one must have a Hound Dog recording (and you should), this is not it. I would get his first studio release from Alligator. It's the most tasty of the bunch (and it's the only one I have on LP and it sounds the best.....perfect sound forever with compact disks, ha!)."
