Entertainment Reviews:

Living Blues - p.52
"A particularly crowd-pleasing romp through 'Move It On Over' is as excitable as blues-based rock can become without causing heart failure..."


Product Description:

Recording information: The Bradford Ballroom, Boston, MA (11/23/1982).
Live in Boston features blues rocker George Thorogood recorded on what must have been another sweat-soaked night on November 23, 1982. On these 13 tracks, Thorogood and his Delaware Destroyers, which at this point included Hank Carter on saxophone, were gaining a significant addition to their fan base by opening shows for the Rolling Stones and the J. Geils Band the previous year. They had also just released their first album for EMI, Bad to the Bone, which began to receive plenty of airplay on AOR radio, and the video was in heavy rotation on MTV. Even though they were obviously moving up in the ranks, Thorogood and company were still sweating it out in bars and smaller halls playing with an uncapped energy which finally saw the band getting the recognition they deserved. The 13 cuts recorded that night move seamlessly from one song to the next, tackling fan favorites penned by the likes of John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, Elmore James, and Hank Williams, along with two original Thorogood tunes, the instrumental "Kids from Philly," and "Miss Luann." This 1982 set doesn't contain any surprises, just an awfully good time that still sounds fresh, alive and, perhaps most importantly, fun. ~ Al Campbell
