FM/Live songs Product Information
FM/Live album for sale by Climax Blues Band was released Feb 10, 2008 on the Akarma label. Originally released in 1973, this live recording finds the British boogie-band stadium rockers at their mature best, performing their unique take on blues and jazz classics like "Seventh Son," "Going to New York," and "Let's Work Together." There's an extended instrumental passage on "Flight," and "Mesopopmania" highlights Colin Cooper and Peter Haycock's Allmans-style dueling guitars, while "So Many Roads" features a gorgeous Peter Green-style guitar workout, and "Shake Your Love" is a bone-rattling Bo Diddley-esque jam. FM/Live CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

||a rediscovered treasure|
while brousing the cd universe files i could hardly believe my eyes when they fell upon this once owned treasure of a live album.it was last in my pocession about 1979 and i had forgotten it's existance.from the opener,"all the time in the world" to the closer,"let's work together" the content of songs carries an upbeat momentum that keeps you feeling that you do not want it to end."flight" is a fantastic instrumental jam with a nice hooky funk to it.i so appreciate the guitar work that runs through the whole record."standing by a river" is another nice funky blues number and "so many roads" is blues at blues best and probably my favorite on the disc.you just cannot go wrong with disc.the packaging is an added bonus modeled after an original vinyl record with inner sleeve to boot.great concert,great disc.

||Smokin' hot album!|
The Climax Blues Band's FM/LIVE album is perhaps the best LIVE album of all time, in my opinion. In their heyday, the Climax Blues Band was one of the most exciting and energetic acts on tour, always eclipsing whatever other act(s) might be on the bill with them. It was their LIVE act that was really demonstrative of their virtuosity, and this album captures the ferocity they brought to the stage. Recorded in 1973, this album should definitely be in the time-capsule as a benchmark performance by a band that totally "went for it". Many of the songs are quite complex in their composition -- and their execution is flawless through the twists and turns, the breaks, the solos... I saw the Climax Blues Band in person on three occasions, and to this day they were the band to beat when it came to LIVE performance. Especially noteworthy is lead guitarist/vocalist Pete Haycock's fearless and brilliant performance. Nobody was tighter than these guys on stage, and this recording is a testament to the Climax Blues Band at their best. NOTE: This is one CD you'll want to crank up "to 11" for the full effect! It's worth noting, not just for Climax fans, but for anyone who is appreciative of virtuoso guitarists and LIVE blues, that the aforementioned ex-Climax Blues Band lead guitarist, PETE HAYCOCK, has just released an amazing new LIVE recording with his current band, "Pete Haycock's True Blues". This new CD, along with Pete Haycock's other recent release (also excellent!), "Bikers' Dozen", are outstanding recordings by this gifted guitarist/composer, and are VERY highly recommended! I can't rate them highly enough -- they only gave me 5 stars with which to vote! (Check out Pete's website as well as the RMI Sound site for more info). Enjoy!!!
