Far from just another live release from a jam band, Recorded Live in Lafayette reveals some clever programming by Landreth. Disc one of this two-disc set ...

Peter Frampton & Cheap Trick
The Paramount
Huntington, NY
July 29, 2015

Frampton Comes Alive! (A&M, 1976) and Live At Budukan (Epic, 1978) are two of the most iconic live recordings of the past 40-or-so years. As such, it's only fitting (and inevitable) that Peter Frampton and Cheap Trick would eventually ...

Sonny Landreth: Bound By the Blues

Read "Sonny Landreth: Bound By the Blues" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Fresh Cream (Atco) was released in 1966, at the height of the blues revival that began in the late 1950s with the publication of Samuel Charter's The Country Blues (Rinehart, 1950) and the subsequent release of the LP The Country Blues (Folkways, 1959). In the early blues revival, it was the rural, acoustic blues that were ...

Peter Novelli: St. Amant Sessions

Read "St. Amant Sessions" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Peter Novelli's St. Amant Sessions smacks of Tab Benoit's The Sea Saint Sessions (Telarc, 2003). For Benoit, the significance of Sea Saint Studios is that they are a NOLA landmark founded by Allen Toussaint. For Novelli, St. Amant, LA is up I-10 between NOLA and Baton Rouge. There, Brignac's Sound Shack resides and this is where, ...

Angelo Santelli: Angelo Santelli

Read "Angelo Santelli" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Floridian Angelo Santelli's debut eponymous recording is a richly mixed bag. An accomplished slide guitarist with associations within the Allman Brothers Band family, Santelli might be taken for granted as a jam-band blues knock off. This is before a first listen something else altogether. On nine disparate original compositions, Santelli reveals a much broader and deeper ...

Low Society: You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down

Read "You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Let's not insult Low Society lead vocalist Mandy Lemons by noting she was influenced by Janis Joplin. That is the lazy critic's out. Better we describe her as the love child of a serious Amy Winehouse and Big Mama Thornton, irradiated by beta particles that had once passed by an AM radio, late at night, playing ...

Tedeschi Trucks Band: Made Up Mind

Read "Made Up Mind" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Since the assimilation of the Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks bands into the eleven-member Tedeschi Trucks Band, the group has worked, creatively speaking, non-stop. The band debuted with 2011's Revelator (Sony Masterworks) followed by the live set, Tedeschi Trucks Band Live: Everybody's Talkin' (Sony Masterworks, 2012), and its requisite tour, reviewed within these electrons.
