CD Reviews

Rockin' Live Blues
Kevin Monahan | Orange Park, FL USA | 11/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a great blues band. The Psyche Delly in Bethesda M.D. was the site of this amazing live performance by the Nighthawks. Jim Thackery and Mark Wenner tear through "Shake Your Moneymaker". "Can't Get Next To You" is played like no band I've ever heard. There are bonus tracks here not on the original release. Check out "Ubangi Stomp", and try to keep still. .... Even the intro is good. A must have blues cd."
Blues and Boogie at it's best

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Nighthawks have been called "the world's greatest bar band" and with this album you can catch some of the excitment that is felt at their concerts. A Blues band for over 20 years, they still know how to rock and this album goes all out to prove it."
Now That's How You Tear the Roof Off The Bar!

(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Nighthawks Live" was released in 1997 as a double-EP combining both "Live at the Psychedelly" in Bethesda, MD 1976 and "Live from The El Macombo" in Toronto, Canada in 1977. The disc shows the Hawks in prime form, bringing bar-band 12-bar to the two packed clubs. Their version of Little Feat's "Tripe Face Boogie" is done with scalpel-thin precision, and Jan Zukowski's bass track is near-unbelievable. Mark Wenner's harp does the ghost of Little Walter justice as they cover Muddy Waters' "19 Years Old". The lightning take of "Shake Your Moneymaker" tears through a hill-country take of the classic tune with a gratuitous harmonica for all. Never truly appreciated for their work in the 1970's as blues-revisionists, the group has stayed together and has recently released a DVD with Howlin' Wolf guitarist Hubert Sumlin.
