A good, very listenable audience recording, and quite the good performance all around - probably my fave of all the Woking NYE gigs thus far.
Special bonus points awarded for a cracking "In the Midnight Hour" with lots of solos, what a nice way to ring in a new year.
The second set really heats up with a smoking "Hoochie Coochie Man" and then just grooves on through.
"Cocaine" closes out the set in uncharacteristically intense fashion.
Please be aware ... near the close of "Cocaine" that isn't some sort of horrible equipment malfunction on stage, it's poor Andy attempting to take a guitar solo. We know now he hasn't spent his time off taking guitar lessons!
A truly fun show, and recommended.
