Whose idea was this? Please wake Bobby Columby up.

"Evidently, someone turned on a microphone to record the concert tour following up B, S & T's least successful album ever, "Nuclear Blues". The positive aspect of this album is that it contains an upbeat and punchy version of "Gimme That Wine" originally from the "Brand New Day" album. "Trouble in Mind" and "Shake a Hand" are also worthwhile. Unfortunately, the group degrades the more prominent and familiar tracks by compressing them into a medley. The "Nuclear Blues" tracks are regrettably performed in their entirety. I suppose there is nothing we can do about those paronoia nuclear blues. If you are looking for a great B, S & T live album, seek out "Live and Improvised" recorded after the release of their "New City" album. P.S. Does anybody know how many times DCT has recorded a version of "I'll Drown In My Own Tears?" I count four. If at first you don't succeed . . ."
