The studio LPs didn't really capture the energy of this great roots-rock band, but this does: 2 CDs of stellar live tracks from the mid-'70s! The 1975 Capitol Theater show (Port Chester, New York) is one of the last recordings by their classic lineup; you'll hear live versions of their hits Hot Rod Lincoln and Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar , and much more 25 unreleased tracks!
Expert musicianship, a diverse repertoire, and an active sense of humor become an explosive mixture in the hands of the Airmen. Recorded during a 1976 tour of England, Live One
shows the genre-twisting band in all its maniacal glory. Western swing standards, rockabilly romps, R&B chestnuts, and a rash of truck-driving songs all find their way into the potent blend, not to mention their offbeat, drug-addled originals. Bill Kirchen's nifty guitar work, Andy Stein's punchy fiddle, and Bobby Black's pedal-steel forays provide the meat: no matter how goofy it gets, their formidable musical chops keep it all together. --Marc Greilsamer
