Lady In Gold Live In Paris
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.
