Can't seem to find it on Tidal to try so I have risked £3.99 on eBay . . . . .

If that’s the 2CD set it’s very good. It’s beautifully produced and I think in the main recorded live in the studio. He is a great blues player and his gravel voice is great on this sort of material never mind his fingerpicking and slide guitar.

Colin, no, just ordered that one on the spur of the moment because I couldn’t find it on Tidal.

I have just had a listen to this on Deezer. Typical  Rea style, if you like him it will be right up your street. Maybe a bit too samey for some, but a solid 4/5 from me.

hope he is OK

saw him Monday night at Sheffield City Hall. We both thought he was playing better than we have seen/heard him play live before.

Oh that does not sound too good. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Same thoughts from me too... I was listening to his latest long player last night so hopefully the road to recovery will be a speedy one...

hope he's back on stage soon, one of these artists who when heard can bring back memories from me from the last 30/40 years

Yeah, I was going to reply to the WAC thread and then found I couldn't...

I had a listen on YouTube, expecting it to be dull, blues-y MOR nonsense. Which it mostly was.

But there was a couple of bright spots. I liked 'Money'. And I liked 'Moving On'. So I think a shame he didn't include other songs beginning with 'Mo...'. He was clearly channelling Steely Dan for these tracks. Big time. Slick and atmospheric.
