Product Description:

Personnel: Steve Forbert (vocals, guitar); John Leventhal (electric & steel pedal guitars); Paul Errico (keyboards); Frank Campbell (bass); Wells Kelly (drums).
Recorded live at My Fathers Place, Long Island, New York on August 14, 1982.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Recorded August. 14, 1982, at My Father's Place, a club in Roslyn, New York, this live show was taped for radio broadcast when Steve Forbert was on the road promoting his fourth and final Nemperor Records disc Steve Forbert, also the last album he would release for six years. As such, it chronicles the culmination of the early part of Forbert's career, 1978-1982, which saw his initial national recognition. Each of his albums of the period is well-represented, with four songs from 1978's Alive on Arrival, among them "Goin' Down to Laurel," four from 1979's Jackrabbit Slim, including "Romeo's Tune," four from 1980's Little Stevie Orbit, and three from Steve Forbert, plus covers of Chuck Berry's "Too Much Monkey Business" and "Little Queenie," and two '60s oldies -- the Searchers' "Everytime That You (Walk in the Room)" and the Troggs' "Love Is All Around" -- and the non-LP Forbert original "You Gotta Go." Fronting a full band (dubbed the Rough Squirrels), Forbert is able to re-create the sound of the albums, and while it can't be said that he bests the original recordings, he often matches them. ~ William Ruhlmann

Rating 4.0 Steve Forbert Live Music Lover: from MAHWAH, NJ US -- August, 2, 2010

Steve Forbert puts on a great show no matter where or when and this CD is a testament to this. He plays well in front of club crowds. Song for Katrina, Ya Ya (Next to Me) and Goin' Down to Laurel are just a few stand out tunes on this disc. A nice addition to any Steve Forbert fan's library.
