A truly "LIVE" live album..

"This was Siegel-Schwall's only completely live album, although live cuts appeared on thier albums all the time, this one was a true live record. It was recorded at the legendary Quiet Knight in Chicago, an upstairs club on West Belmont in 1974. Siegel-Schwall had the regular Tuesday night spot there. The Quiet Knight's been gone for over 25 years now, but the memories live on in the recording. It starts out with "Rock Me Baby", a smokin' HOT version with Rollo on lead vocals. Jim Schwall's lead slide guitar work just makes one's mouth water. Rollo's extended pause during the last verse shows the humor the band's bassist had (and still does) while he makes the audience wait..and wait..and then the laughter starts and you just know it's gonna be a great night...and then he sings the final line and the song come to a thunderous conclusion, and we're off! Jim's next with "You Don't Love Me Like That", an original from thier "Sleepy Hollow" album and always a crowd pleaser, and Corky follows with another "Sleepy Hollow" number, "I Won't Hold My Breath" featuring more of Jim's slide guitar virtuosity, Corky's vocal acrobatics and fleet fingered piano work. Three songs appear on a Siegel-Schwall album for the first time here, "Out-a-Gas?", "West Coast Blues" and "Sun Is Shining" and they're all worthy and wonderful additions to the Siegel-Schwall catalog.I am so glad that this finally saw the light of day on CD. You will be too."
