Overview

The James Gang earned a great number of fans through their live performances, so it made sense that they would release a live record within months of their successful third album. Live in Concert captures much of the energy of their live performances, with Joe Walsh's guitar solos catching fire on nearly every song. However, the record also makes it clear that he was beginning to outgrow the confines of the James Gang, as Fox and Peters struggled to keep up with his imaginative playing for most of the album.

For anybody who loves good 60s-era hard rock, especially live performances, this album is for you. It's hard to find a better three-piece group than the James Gang, and this album proves that their true power came out on stage. Joe Walsh has always been a favorite guitarist of mine, and he doesn't disappoint here, and both Dale Peters and Jim Fox provide a stable, yet perfectly active, rhythmic floor (both of their solos on "Lost Woman" are excellent). The live version of "Stop" here is a vastly superior version than the rambling 10-minute studio version, which wanders around but never really gets anywhere. Here it is tight and crisp; it almost kicks you in the face to get your attention. The two organ driven songs, "Take a Look Around" and "Tend my Garden" are both testaments to Joe Walsh's immense talent as a musician and not just guitarist. And then, of course, comes "Walk Away," one of my favorite songs of all time. The version here varies a little from the studio version, but the inclusion of a bridge and pre-chorus allow Fox to really expand and drive the song. I would recommend this album to anybody who likes to rock, period.
