This week on Cut Me Some Slack we look at the 'live album' and focus on 3 very different artists. First, we look back at George Harrison (and Friends) 1971 album 'The Concert for Bangladesh' featuring 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and 'Here Comes The Sun'. We also delve into the documentary 'Living In The Material World', the Hamburg shenanigans, and the joys of gardening to Monty Python.
Next up was guitarist Joe Bonamassa's really cool take on the blues with his 'Muddy Wolf Live at Red Rocks' album (also on DVD if that's you're thing). The setup is one set of Muddy Waters songs, one from Howlin' Wolf, then JB would play a set of originals, so you were getting plenty of bang for your buck. Not only a great guitar player, but I really like how he's taking these songs, given them a spin, but they still retain the essence of what they're meant to be.
To close the show, a couple of tracks from Pearl Jam's 'Live On Ten Legs' album. Best played loud...
