Blues Pills

Lady In Gold Live In Paris

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff Albums - Dave ever­ley

Blues rock­ers party like it’s 1969 on dou­ble live al­bum.

Blues Pills have spent two al­bums and nu­mer­ous EPs lock­ing down the whole Ja­nis Jo­plin-frontingBlue Cheer thing, so it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore they fished the dou­ble live al­bum idea out of the dust­bin of his­tory.

Lady In Gold Live In Paris does a grand job of recre­at­ing the old days. In­evitably it’s sig­na­ture song Devil Man that takes the hon­ours, but else­where the band sen­si­bly keep things punchy; only one track, heavy-duty groover Lit­tle Boy Preacher, tops the seven-minute mark.

It’s not quite up there with the land­mark dou­ble live LPs of the early 70s, but you can’t knock Blues Pills for dream­ing.
