The Del Lords - Howlin' At The Halloween Moon (1988 Great US Power Rock'n'roll Live - Wave)

This budget-priced live CD has its heart in the right place, and although it's the best...Lords since Frontier Days, it still represents a holding pattern more than a return to past glories. The overall sound is pretty hot: Eric Ambel's slide raunch cuts a swath through Scott Kempner's scratchy (and underrecorded) rhythm guitar (Scott guitar is on left channel; Eric guitar is on right channel), while Frank Funaro and Manny Caiati bash'n'crash like a runaway train. The set list is strong (good cover of The Flamin' Groovies' "Jumpin' in the Night"), despite the fact that much of it was taken from their last two so-so records. But, to their credit, "True Love" and "Judas Kiss" have never sounded better...

01- True love 
02- Jumpin' in the night 
03- Wastin' time talkin' 
04- The cool 'n' the crazy 
05- Judas kiss 
06- I play the drums 
07- Tallahassee Lassie .
