UK – Night After Night-Live!
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz | 951mb
Mastered At Sterling Sound
Label: Polydor/PD-1-6234 | Release: 1979 | Genre: Progressive-Rock
This is the live record of the 2 UK’s studio albums. The sound is only good. There are 2 new songs: “Night after night” and “As long as you want me here”. The more accessible “Night after night” is not very complex, more diluted, so that it is a bit disappointing, although there is a very good organ solo. “As long as you want me here” contains an interesting & too short intro of really modern & futuristic keyboards; Jobson’s simple piano and Wetton’s vocals are quite addictive and catchy, but nothing is really complex and elaborated on this track. The keyboards intro on “Alaska” is ABSOLUTELY flamboyant: quite better and louder than on the studio album. The complex & fast parts like on “Presto vivace” are VERY well played: Jobson is a GOD! Jobson’s electric violins are very fast and elaborated, especially on “Caesar’s Palace Blues”, reminding Darryl Way’s work or himself playing with Curved Air. The enthusiastic crowd favorably responds. Instead of the 2 new tracks mentioned above, UK should have played the complex bit a la ELP on “Carrying no cross”. Have you heard the curious cut effect made on the crowd’s “UK” shout, after the “Caesar’s Palace Blues” track?
