No overdubs, no sweetening, in fact, no extra music to flesh out this relatively slim double disc available at a single price that clocks in at a combined total of only 96 minutes: Welcome to one full Walter Trout performance, complete with between song patter as well as every note -- and there are a lot of them -- the guitarist played at this March 2000 show. Filled with blistering, unrefined, and unadulterated blues-rock, Trout has been playing shows identical to this for years in Europe where he is a fairly major star.

All Music Guide - Hal Horowitz
No overdubs, no sweetening, in fact, no extra music to flesh out this relatively slim double disc available at a single price that clocks in at a combined total of only 96 minutes: Welcome to one full Walter Trout performance, complete with between song patter as well as every note -- and there are a lot of them -- the guitarist played at this March 2000 show. Filled with blistering, unrefined, and unadulterated blues-rock, Trout has been playing shows identical to this for years in Europe where he is a fairly major star. The accomplished guitar slinger unfailingly delivers the sizzling six-string goods, especially in concert with his gritty yet undistinguished voice and frenetic leads. On his second live album, but first easily available in the States, Trout pulls out all the stops, shifting from the stinging slow blues and soft-loud dynamics of "Finally Gotten Over You" and "The Reason I'm Gone" to the all-out grinding swamp of "Gotta Broken Heart" and the meat and potatoes Chuck Berry by way of Johnny Winter rock and roll of "Good Enough to Eat." Tough, roughshod, and passionate, Trout, who had gone without sleep for 24 hours before this show, doesn't sound a bit fatigued. The liner notes state that this even adds an edge to this performance. A sideline into Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" adds some much needed subtly and a bit of gospel flavor to the proceedings, but Trout works best when his lightening fingers, brawny sustain, and hot dog fret runs are given free reign. It's all sweaty, powerful, and uncompromising, but without a unique voice, either vocally or instrumentally, Trout remains a gifted, hard working, undoubtedly scintillating live performer without the idiosyncratic edge to pull away from a pack of equally talented blues rockers.

    Thr Real King Of The Blues

    Former Canned Heat and John Mayall guitarist Walter Trout has been playing the blues for many years with such greats as Coco Montoya and Joe Bonamassa. Amongst blues aficionados he is considered the heir to Stevie Ray Vaughn's throne, and his fiery style is captured live on this incredible album. Most of his best songs are here without all the overdubbing and studio tricks that most bands need to sound half as good. His blistering solos and soulful voice combine to create the perfect blues experience, and his band is as tight as ever on this live recording. His songwriting abilities are equal to his dazzling guitar skills making him one of the finest blues artists in the world today. His latest work, "Full Circle" is another must have for any serious blues collector, but I prefer this recording and his "Deep Trout" greatest hits album. If you love the blues, listen to this album on a hot day with a cold beer and enter blues heaven.
